One Body Found, 9 Cubans Detained off Puerto Rico’s West Coast

SAN JUAN – U.S. Border Patrol agents assigned to Customs and Border Protection on Thursday found a body floating offshore and detained nine Cubans near Mona Island, located in the channel separating Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic.

CBP announced in a communique that a Dominican citizen was also detained in the operation.

The group of undocumented immigrants consisted of six men, two women and a 3-year-old boy, all of them Cubans, along with the Dominican citizen, all of whom arrived in the vicinity of Mona Island from the Dominican Republic on board a homemade boat.

The body, whose identity was not made public, was taken to the port of Mayagüez, on Puerto Rico’s northwest coast, where the Homicide Division of the island’s police took charge of the investigation.

The migrants will be handed over to the Border Patrol for interviews and other immigration procedures.
