As Water Level Drops, More Bodies Surface at Lake Mead

This is beginning to get a bit habitual.

Most body of waters have something to hide.  This is just the nature of the murky depths – a place where items of significant nefarious gravity can be swallowed whole and lost to time, all the while succumbing to advanced forces of nature and a premature disguise or demise.

Just look at folks who go magnet-fishing, for example, where finding knives and handguns is somewhat common, (and creepy), and eleven-year-old kids find $20,000 worth of sniper rifle parts.

Now, as the water level of Lake Mead continues to drop, thanks in part to an historic drought, a number of unsolved mysteries may soon find answers.

New human remains were found at Lake Mead in Nevada over the weekend, days after a decomposed body was found in a metal barrel at the lake’s shrinking shoreline.

A witness reported seeing human skeletal remains at Callville Bay within the Lake Mead National Recreation Area at 2 p.m local time on Saturday, the National Park Service said in a release.

Park rangers responded and set a perimeter to recover the remains. The Clark County Medical Examiner will determine the cause of death.

And this isn’t the first time:

The discovery comes nearly a week after remains were found in a barrel at Lake Mead on May 1, exposed by receding water levels.

That victim was believed to have been killed between the mid-1970s and the early 1980s based on clothing and footwear the victim was found with, the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department said in a statement at the time.

“We believe this is a homicide as a result of a gunshot wound,” Lt. Ray Spencer said.

Will Lake Mead continue to cough up her secrets in the coming months?  It’s quite possible, as there appears to be no end in sight for the current drought.

Secret Service Shamed After Drunk Agents Assault Cab Driver in South Korea

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations.

You can tell a lot about a White House by the extracurricular nonsense that hits the press surrounding it.

For instance, after one of President Joe Biden’s dogs began biting random people on the grounds, we started hearing murmurs of just how terse and stressful the place had become, with dog behavior experts suggesting that the mood at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue might have a lot to do with the aggression.

This week, the Biden administration beget more bad behavior, but this time it wasn’t from one of the First Pets.

Two U.S. Secret Service agents in South Korea were sent stateside ahead of President Biden’s arrival following their involvement in an off-duty alcohol-related incident.

The two agents, whose identities have not been made public, are on their way back to Washington, D.C. where they will face disciplinary action, a source familiar with the matter told Fox News.

Both agents apparently became intoxicated while not on duty. One of the agents then got into an altercation with a cab driver.

There could be more trouble coming, as well.

In South Korea, officials send mediators to the scene of low-level disputes and then determine if criminal charges would be filed.

One of the agents was interviewed by authorities and no charges have been filed.

The government released one of its usual, dry, boilerplate-esque missives.

“The Secret Service is aware of an off-duty incident involving two employees which may constitute potential policy violations,” USSS chief spokesman Anthony Guglielmi told Fox News. “We have very strict protocols and policies for all employees and we hold ourselves to the highest professional standards.”

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations, with a notable incident having occurred in 2012, involving Barack Obama’s agents and a Colombian prostitute.
