DRIVER DENIES HE KNEW IMMIGRANTS WERE INSIDE
4A man charged in Texas with transporting unauthorized immigrants in a stifling truck told investigators he had no idea that they were inside until he stopped and found dozens of dead and dehydrated people in the back, court papers showed on Monday. James Matthew Bradley Jr., 60, was arrested on Sunday and could face the death penalty after authorities found eight men dead in the back of his tractor trailer truck parked outside a Walmart store in San Antonio. Scores of other immigrants, including children, suffering from dehydration and heat stroke, were also inside. Two of them later died after being hospitalized, bringing the death toll to 10. One of the immigrants aboard later described to investigators unbearable conditions inside the crowded, pitch-black interior.
