Human Remains Found In Lake Linked To Mob

On Saturday, more skeleton remains were uncovered in Lake Mead as the water level dropped.

Mob action has been related to remains discovered in prior days.

Rangers from the National Park Service were dispatched to Callville Bay on Lake Mead around 2:00 p.m. on Saturday after human skeletal remains were discovered, according to 8NewsNow.

The cause of death for the remains is still being determined by the Clark County Medical Examiner.

There are no indications of foul play in this tragedy at this time, but the inquiry is still ongoing.

A metal barrel packed with more bone remains was discovered on Lake Mead’s beach earlier this month.

The bones belonged to a guy who died in the 1970s or 1980s, according to authorities.

According to Lt. Ray Spencer of the New York Times, the guy died from a gunshot wound.

He also informed the publication that police will not rule out the possibility that the victim’s killing was linked to the Mafia.

The body was discovered near Las Vegas, which was notorious in the 1970s and 1980s as a mafia stronghold.

Even though the guy died four decades ago, authorities are still investigating the crime based on his clothes and shoes.

Experts are assisting in the identification fof the corpse.

Drought has hit the Lake Mead area, prompting lowering water lines to reveal remains of people who have been missing for decades.

More bodies are likely to be discovered if the drought continues and the lake levels fall, according to Spencer of The New York Times.

It will be difficult for scientists to identify decades-old dead because DNA was barely gathered in the 1970s and 1980s.
