On Monday, the Bexar County Medical Examiner’s Office released all 53 names of the victims of the deadly human smuggling case in San Antonio, meaning that everyone killed in the June 27 tragedy has now been identified.

County officials had been working for two weeks to identify the 53 people who died while attempting to enter the U.S.

The Medical Examiner’s office had to wait for confirmation of notification of next of kin for the victims, which meant coordinating with each of their countries of origin. Of the migrants killed, 26 were citizens of Mexico, 21 were citizens of Guatemala and six were citizens of Honduras.

Forty-eight victims were found dead at the location where the tractor-trailer they were riding in was abandoned; five more died later at local hospitals. Officials have said the victims who died inside the sweltering truck were seeking work and security in the United States.
