Due to climate change on the drying Lake Mead in the United States began to find human remains

(ORDO NEWS) — Due to the ongoing drought in the United States, Lake Mead in Nevada dries up. As the water level drops, tourists increasingly stumble upon human remains from the bottom of the lake.

Officials warn that more bodies are expected to be discovered in the near future…

According to Gizmodo, on May 1, police received a report of human remains stuck in the silt of the drying Lake Mead, the largest reservoir in the United States by volume of water.

Less than a week later, on Saturday, May 7, National Park Service rangers received another report that more human remains had been found near the waters of the lake.

According to a press release from the National Park Service, the first body is likely a homicide victim. The man was shot dead.

Judging by the found fragments of clothing and shoes, the victim was killed in the mid-70s or early 80s. However, the person could not be identified.

There are no details yet on the second body – the Clark County Medical Examiner is investigating the cause of death and the person’s identity.

The lake continues to dry up…

According to the La Vegas police, the area where the first body was found was covered with water for ten meters just a few decades ago.

The US Southwest is currently experiencing its worst drought in 1,200 years, a recent study published in Nature Climate Change shows.

Officials said they expect more human remains to be found as water levels continue to fall.
