As a result of the drought, the artificial Lake Mead, which is located on the border between the states of Arizona and Nevada, has the lowest water level in 80 years. As a result of this state of affairs, the shrinking surface of the lake is revealing its dark secrets. That’s certainly what the remains of four people found between May and August should be called.

A fourth and still unidentified skeleton was found this past Saturday in Swim Beach. The find was secured and is being examined by specialists from the coroner’s office in Clark County, Nevada. At this point, no cause of death has yet been determined, nor how long the remains were underwater.

Park rangers, however, responded and secured the area. They then picked up the human remains with the assistance of a team of divers from the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department. The investigation is still ongoing reported the Lake Mead National Park Service in a statement.

The first human remains were found in May by boaters who spotted a barrel containing bones and shreds of clothing. It turned out to be the skeleton of a man shot between the mid-1970s and early 1980s. Just a week later, two women sailing on a SUP spotted another skeleton on an exposed section of bottom . In turn, a third remains was discovered by tourists on one of the popular beaches.
