'More human remains' surface as lake near Las Vegas shrinks in drought

According to reports, more human remains were found in drought-stricken Lake Mead, near Las Vegas. This comes a week after another body was discovered in a barrel. Police believe this may be connected to the Mafia.

Park rangers were informed that human skeletal remains had been discovered at the reservoir on Saturday. The reservoir is currently experiencing record-low water levels.

This comes just a week after a barrel that contained the remains of a man who was shot was discovered in a newly exposed section of Lake Mead.

Police believe the murder occurred between the mid-1970s to the early 1980s, as the victim was wearing shoes made during this period.

Lieutenant Ray Spencer, homicide detective at the New York Times, said that investigators are looking into whether the death could have been linked to the Mafia.

Lt. Spencer stated that there was a “very good chance” more human remains would be found at the time of discovery.

Lake Mead National Recreation Area stated that the latest discovery was made at Callville Bay on Saturday at 2pm local time.

Park rangers arrived on the scene to retrieve the remains. A coroner’s office was contacted to determine the cause.

Fox5 Las Vegas reports that retired officers Daniel Minor and David Kohlmeier are offering $5,000 to divers who discover any bodies.

“We believe there are other people out there,” Kohlmeier stated to the broadcaster.

“We believe that there are cold cases out there, or missing persons in general. There is a possibility that bodies could be recovered because the water level is so low.

Fox5 Las Vegas reported that the officers are part of a TV program called The Problem Solver Show. The reward is offered in an attempt to bring closure to victims’ families and help police.

Lake Mead was formed in 1930 by the Hoover Dam. Lake Powell is upstream and forms part of a system that supplies water to over 40 million people across several states, including Arizona, California and Nevada.
