Bodies surfacing in Lake Mead recall mob’s time in Las Vegas

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Lake Mead is receding and Sin City is awash with mob lore after a second set of human remains emerged within a week from the depths of the drought-stricken Colorado River reservoir just a short drive from the Las Vegas Strip.

Former Mayor Oscar Goodman represented mob figures as a lawyer.

He said Monday: “There’s no telling what we’ll find in Lake Mead.”

Two paddle boarders from Henderson found bones Saturday on a newly surfaced sand bar.

A week earlier, boaters spotted the decomposed body of a man in a rusted barrel.

A UNLV history professor says he’d bet that as the lake level drops, more bodies will be found.
