Several days ago, boaters came upon a rather gruesome discovery.
A barrel with a decomposing body was found.
As it turns out, that is far from the only dead body in the lake, as more remains have been discovered.
The location of the discovery already has the ears up on amateur sleuths.
Being in Nevada, the natural thought process here is that the mob was using the lake as a dumping ground for bodies.
Rangers at the National Park Service, however, are not feeding into the frenzy.
The Park Service stated, “The investigation is ongoing.
“No further information is available at this time.”
While the first body that was found in a barrel is believed to have been a murder victim, the second body is not suspected of foul play…
With the recent drought creating record water level drops, more bodies are expected to be discovered.
Las Vegas Police Lt. Ray Spencer stated, “I would say there is a very good chance as the water level drops that we are going to find additional human remains.”
He added, “I think anybody can understand there are probably more bodies that have been dumped in Lake Mead.
“It’s just a matter of, are we able to recover those?”
