Body found in barrel in Las Vegas lake might be from 1980s: report

A dry spell evaporating a Las Vegas lake uncovered something just somewhat less alarming than environmental change: human remaining parts in a barrel.

The barrel was found Sunday evening by a gathering of boaters on Lake Mead, which then, at that point, cautioned the National Park Service, as indicated by the organization. Officers tracked down the barrel close to Hemenway Harbor and are presently working with the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department and the Clark County coroner’s office to decide the character.

In any case, while this might seem like an ideal Sin City body dump, police let KLAS know that the remaining parts seem to have been from the ’80s, in view of individual things in the barrel.

A representative for the LVMPD didn’t promptly return a solicitation for input from the Daily News Tuesday.
For the time being, agents have contacted UNLV to help “analyze development on the barrel and when it might have begun to dissolve,” as per KLAS.

Lt. Beam Spencer additionally let the station know that more bodies could arrive at the surface as Lake Mead’s water levels keep on dropping.
