More human remains have been discovered in Lake Mead – bringing the tally to four since May – as water levels hit record lows amid a severe drought, according to a report.
The newest skeletal remains were found at Swim Beach in Nevada on Saturday and are being examined by the Clark County Coroner’s office, the National Park Service said.
The identity of the remains and the cause of death are not currently known.
A first body was discovered on May 1, another on May 7 and a third on July 26. All the remains have yet to be identified.
The newest discovery comes on the heels of a man, Todd Kolod, claiming he believes the second set of remains belong to his father, according to the Daily Mail.
