ALERT: So many people in El Paso have died of covid that the morgues are overflowing and have begun using jail labor to move bodies.

Sharing is Caring!

An El Paso County Sheriff’s spokesperson confirms that inmates at the County Detention Facility are assisting the El Paso Medical examiner with the overflow of bodies at the morgue.

The inmates were seen at the Medical Examiner’s office in full PPE gear on Friday, assisting near the mobile morgues and inside the building. The spokesperson did not give further detail about the inmates’ formal tasks, only that they were “helping them there.”

As KTSM previously reported, El Paso has ten mobile morgues set up at the Medical Examiner’s office for the overflow of bodies awaiting autopsy.
