Rangers from the National Park Service (NPS) confirmed a report of human remains discovered in Lake Mead on Monday afternoon. The information came from an individual at Swim Beach nearby Boulder Beach at Lake Mead at 4:30 p.m., according to the NPS.

Park rangers established a barrier around the assumed remains and stated that the Clark County Medical Examiner had been summoned to determine what happened.

This will not be the first time human remains have been discovered as the lake diminishes significantly.

A body was discovered in a barrel earlier this year in an area that was once a half mile from shore before water levels subsided. Investigators believe the individual, thought to be a man, was murdered in the late 1970s or early 1980s.

According to park service officials, 300 individuals have drowned in Lake Mead’s waters since it was filled in the 1930s. According to records, the 1990s had the most drownings.
