Human Skeletal Remains Were Recovered From Lake Mead – National Park Services
LAS VEGAS – The National Park Service stated Wednesday that a dive team recovered human skeletal remains from Lake Mead on Oct. 18.
Divers searched the region after a commercial diver at Lake Mead National Recreation Area found what appeared to be a human bone on Oct. 17.
Dawn stated no foul play is suspected. “The Clark County coroner’s office has been contacted”
Human bone matter has been found submerged or exposed on the coast of the lake, which has been receding for months due to a yearslong drought and a drop in the amount of melting snow from the Colorado Rockies that flows into the lake from the Colorado River.
The Clark County coroner is currently analyzing human bones found in May.
Clark County Public Affairs Officer Stacey Welling said divers found human remains in Calville Bay this month.
Mohave County Medical Examiner’s Office in Lake Havasu, Arizona, is investigating a human femur bone supplied by the Park Service on Sept. 29.
