LAS VEGAS – The Mohave County Sheriff’s Office has identified human remains found in Golden Valley in September 2022. The remains were found in a wash near Ligurta Road on Sept. 12, and a sample was given to Othram Inc. for genome sequencing. The remains have been identified as Jordan Victor Carvalho, 30, of Golden Valley, who was reported missing by a family member on Sept. 30, 2019.

Carvalho’s remains were found by a citizen and were taken to the Mohave County Medical Examiner’s Office. Detectives with special investigations at the sheriff’s office later asked Othram Inc. for their assistance in conducting a genetic genealogy investigation, which resulted in the positive identification of Carvalho on Friday.

Due to the state of the remains when they were located, an official cause of death was not able to be determined. Anyone with information regarding the missing person case of Jordan Carvalho is encouraged to contact the Mohave County Sheriff’s Office Detective Division at 928-753-0753 ext. 4288 and reference DR#19-037765.
