As the water level of the nation’s largest man-made reservoir keeps receding due to drought, human bodies keep emerging. For the second time in seven days, human remains have been discovered in Lake Mead near Las Vegas.
U.S. National Park Service rangers said human skeletal remains were found about 2 p.m. Saturday at Lake Mead near Callville Bay.. The discovery came a week after the decayed body of a man was found stuffed in a steel barrel near the reservoir’s Hemenway Fishing Pier, more than 20 miles from Callville…
Police said the killing was thought to have happened between the mid-1970s and the early 1980s because the victim was wearing shoes manufactured during that period. Divers are being offered rewards if they recover any other bodies, in the hope that cold cases can be solved
