CHICAGO (AP) — It could take months for investigators to determine how and why a scheme to smuggle dozens of Mexicans into the United States ended with the death of nine people who were in an overheated tractor-trailer discovered in Texas.

The most notorious case occurred in 2003, when 19 being smuggled in a truck in south Texas died of heat-related injuries.
