More human remains found at Lake Mead

Human remains were found Monday on a beach on Nevada’s Lake Mead, the National Park Service said.

The presumed age of the remains, found around 4:30 p.m. at Swim Beach in Lake Mead National Recreation Area, was not released in a statement expression.

The Clark County Medical Examiner’s office, which will determine the cause of death, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

It wasn’t clear if low water levels at Lake Mead, the country’s largest reservoir, played a role in the discovery.

The lake, which straddles the Nevada-Arizona state line, has reached historic lows this year.


Lake Mead is at its lowest level since 1937 when it was first filled, said NASA recently when it released satellite images showing its change. Last week, the reservoir was down to just 27 percent of its capacity.

As water levels dropped amid a western United States drought and climate change, a body was found in a barrel in May after being uncovered, officials said.

These remains are believed to date to the 1970s or 1980s, Las Vegas police said, and the individual was fatally shot.

Monday’s discovery marks the second time human remains have been found at Lake Mead this month.

On July 6thA woman’s body was found near the Boulder Islands, where a woman was going absence after falling off a jet ski on June 30, Lake Mead officials said at the time.

The Clark County coroner later confirmed it was the woman who went missing. This was reported by the NBC subsidiary KSNV from Las Vegas.

Lake Mead was created by the construction of the Hoover Dam, which was completed in 1935. More human remains found at Lake Mead
