A rusty barrel located near the site where the first human remains were found in Mead Lake.

Lake Mead is the largest reservoir in the United States whose size has dropped in recent years revealing something terrifying: the presence of human remains.

On May 1, authorities found the body of the murdered man inside a metal barrel.

Investigators said the body, found by boatmen on the lake, belonged to someone who was shot in the 1970s or 1980s.

Las Vegas Police Detective Ray Spencer told local media that models sold at well-known Kmart stores at the time were determined by the victim’s clothing and footwear.
