As the nation’s largest reservoir has dropped to record lows, at least three bodies have been discovered in the surrounding area of Lake Mead.

According to a press statement from the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, the first body was located on May 1 and was a murder victim who died from a gunshot wound “sometime in the mid-’70s to early-’80s, based on clothing and footwear recovered with the decedent.”

On May 7th, the second set of human remains was discovered in the park’s Callville Bay area.

On Tuesday, the Clark County Coroner/Medical Examiner’s Office reported that there had been no new developments in the investigation.

The ebbing tide has also revealed sunken vessels, such as a landing craft from World War II, which was discovered last month.

As a result of climate change-induced megadrought, the water levels in the Colorado River and its two main reservoirs, Lake Mead and Lake Powell have been steadily declining in recent years, threatening the drinking water supplies of an estimated 40 million people in the West.

As of this past Tuesday, the water level in Lake Mead was 1,040 feet, which is nearly 174 feet lower than its full level in the year 2000. Since its filling in the 1930s, this is the reservoir’s lowest recorded level.
The low water level in April revealed one of the reservoir’s original water input gates.

The Southern Nevada Water Authority reports that the valve has been in use since 1971 but is now unable to function properly and draw water.

The 2.2 million residents of southern Nevada, including Las Vegas, are serviced by this organization, which is charged with water resource management.

In May, Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Homicide Lt. Ray Spencer observed, “The lake has emptied considerably over the last 15 years.

” As Lake Mead continues to recede, “it’s conceivable that we may locate additional bodies that have been dumped in Lake Mead.”
