The water level of Lake Mead, near Las Vegas, Nevada, along with other lakes in the West and SouthWest US, has reached dangerously low levels. Some areas are experiencing a "megadrought," and it has been called the worst drought in the last 1,200 years. This situation is causing a serious issue for drinking water and hydroelectric power for those who rely on both from some of these bodies of water. The water levels in Lake Mead have also unearthed a number of bodies, including at least one that was found in a barrel.
Join Mike and Morf as they discuss the bodies that have recently surfaced in Lake Mead. Many are still unidentified, including one found inside a barrel. This one for sure is no accident because people just don't accidentally end up in a barrel. The fact that the body was found inside a barrel, and the proximity to Las Vegas, have led many to suspect that this was a murder committed by the mob. These discoveries are very recent, so it remains to be seen how many of these individuals were murdered or died by accident.
