More human remains found in Lake Mead:


A week after a decades-old body was found in receding Lake Mead, authoritie­s in Las Vegas are trying to identify a second set of newly discovered human remains. Two sisters from the Las Vegas suburb of Henderson were paddleboar­ding on the drought-stricken Colorado River reservoir when they spotted bones Saturday in the Callville Bay area of the lake. Investigat­ors are not treating the case as a homicide, Las Vegas police said. The discovery came after a body in a barrel was found May 1 along newly exposed shoreline of the lake, formed by the Hoover Dam between Nevada and Arizona. In that case, police said, the body was a man who had been shot, probably between the mid-1970s and the early 1980s based on the shoes he was wearing.
