Even More Human Remains Found at Lake Mead Amid Historic Drought

A fourth set of human remains was found at a Nevada national park on Saturday, as the region continues to experience an unprecedented drought that has led to receding water levels.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reported that the skeletal remains were discovered at Swim Beach, a small recreation site located at Lake Mead National Recreation Area. This is the fourth time since May that human remains have been recovered at the national park.

Human remains were also discovered at Swim Beach on July 25. On May 7, beachgoers discovered human remains at Callville Bay, which is also located at Lake Mead.

Days earlier, on May 1, 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 Callville Bay.
