The Lake Mead reservoir in the USA has little water due to the drought.

Human remains have now been found for the fourth time.

Las Vegas – Human remains have come to light in the Lake Mead reservoir near the US metropolis of Las Vegas.

After an emergency call, parts of a human skeleton were found on a beach in the lake's recreation area on Saturday, the national park administration NPS said.

Police divers recovered the remains.

The coroner is now trying to determine the cause of death.

Due to the drought, the water level of the reservoir has dropped sharply.

Human remains have been found in Lake Mead for the fourth time since May 2022.

Most recently, skeletal remains of a human were discovered on July 25.

The first human remains in the reservoir were discovered on May 1: the body showed a gunshot wound and had been dumped in a barrel in the lake, believed to be between the mid-1970s and early 1980s.

It was without a doubt a murder, the broadcaster

CNN

quoted an investigator as saying.

According to the current status of the investigation, it is pure speculation that the mafia could have been involved, he emphasized.
