3/23: Mexican slain crossed with family
Released 31 March 2005  By ARIZONA DAILY STAR

A Mexican man found dead in the desert near Arivaca on
Sunday had crossed the border illegally with family
members, who scattered when someone began shooting at
the group, officials said Tuesday.

Angel Rafael Calistro Celaya, 26, crossed with
relatives Friday, said Deputy Dawn Barkman, a Pima
County Sheriff's Department spokeswoman.

Two boys in the group told authorities they heard
gunshots and started running, she said. After a short
time, the boys realized Celaya wasn't with them and
backtracked to look for him, she said.

They found his body, but then heard a helicopter
overhead and started running toward the border,
Barkman said.

The boys called local hospitals looking for Celaya but
didn't find him. They eventually called the Border
Patrol, and agents in a helicopter found his body

While the homicide is thought to be related to drug
trafficking, Barkman said detectives can't prove
several bales of marijuana found a couple of hundred
yards from the body belonged to Celaya or his family
