Third Set of Human Remains Found at Lake Mead Amid Unprecedented Drought

A third set of human remains was found at a Nevada national park on Monday as water levels at Lake Mead continue to recede.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reported that the remains were discovered at Swim Beach, a small recreation site along the Boulder Basin. The basin is located at Lake Mead National Recreation Area beach, where three sets of remains have been found since May amid an ongoing drought.

In early May, beachgoers discovered human remains at Caville Bay. Days earlier, a man’s skeleton was discovered inside a barrel near Hemenway Harbor.

The man is believed to be a murder victim who was fatally shot sometime in the mid-70s or 80s based on the clothing he was wearing.

Officials have not disclosed details about the sets of human remains found at Swim Beach and Caville Bay.
