PHOENIX -- Pinal County authorities said five people are in custody in the heat death of an immigrant in the back of a rental truck and that a sixth person is being sought.

The Pinal County Sheriff's Office said the latest person to be arrested in the case was 53-year-old Enrique Morales Velazquez of Phoenix. He was arrested Tuesday in Phoenix.

The person still being sought has been identified as 39-year-old Glen Alan Turner of Phoenix.

The immigrant who died was among eight heat-exhaustion victims found July 7 in a U-Haul van at an Interstate 10 gas station near Picacho Peak.

The Sheriff's Office said the immigrants were picked up in Douglas and were to be driven to Phoenix.
