    I think you're completely right. Ugly area, that...but there's also a lot of obvious activity at that cement plant and the gravel quarries. Unless the car was set back off the road, maybe behind an abandoned truck, it would have been spotted if it had been there long. I think.

    They have petroglyphs that you can hike to also - not sure how much action they get around there. I'm sure if it's someone from that area, they'll figure it out pretty quick.

    There is no more news on the jawbone found at Lake Mead last week. I wish there was an update.

    Really.
    But it's going to be a real toughie, because THIS REPORT describes it as " the upper portion of a jawbone" .... which I'd guess means it's "old bones".

    It was only 40 feet out in the water, so it could have travelled down through Kingman Wash over a long period of time, or made its way through the Colorado flow of Lake Mead.

    Or maybe it's from the old cemetery or historic graves that were covered by the lake?

    I wasn't expecting an ID or anything, but wondering if any additional remains were found. It could easily be what you say, but that's why it seemed so odd to me that they called the dive team out. It seems a bit extreme under the circumstances.

    They probably don't get much practice in the desert; plus, they probably didn't know what they were dealing with.

    I hate being left hanging. Like the woman's body found in Cle Elumn WA, or the one in Wyoming.

    Hey guys, it's been a while since I've written, but I'm always lurking

    Anyway, just wanted to say that I read this to mean not "old bones" but that they're talking about maxilla rather than mandible. Either way, it's probably going to be awhile before we have an ID.

    If the bone was found in the water, who else would be able to look for the rest of the remains, if there are any?
    Opinions expressed are strictly my own (who else would they belong to???)

    Hellooooo!

    I worded that strangely, didn't I?

    What I should have said: "It sounds like old bones, because the upper jaw (maxilla) wasn't intact."

    That's probably not sounding right, either....but maybe better.

    This article says they find human remains 2 - 3 times a year in Lake Mead. I have never heard of them sending out the dive team based on the finding of one, relatively small bone. It's particularly odd to me if it's likely this bone wound up there as laytonian suggested.

    There's an interesting article on Archaeology.org that talks about how previous Lake Mead searches were conducted.

    It seems that the National Park Service has a Submerged Resources Center (SRC) that investigates sinkings, drownings and crimes.

    I hadn't heard of it either; not, about the B-29 that had crashed into the lake.

    Interesting, but it was the LVMPD dive team that went out on Friday.

    I doubt this is Steven and I don't want to dwell on it. I just found it interesting that Metro sent their dive team in.

    Hm, that is interesting. Especially since it said the bone was on the Arizona side.

    I notice that nothing says whether they found anything later, or whether they found something besides the bone.

    Yeah, probably not Steven. The other one, with the burning car, sounds more likely and is much closer to where he was last seen.

    Maybe the other team wasn't nearby?

    They probably have a jurisdictional agreement; LVMPD's the closest large police department. Kingman, AZ wouldn't have much use for a dive team

    It doesn't strike me odd that the Kingman dive team, if there is one, didn't respond. It does strike me odd that the Lake Mead Recreation dive team didn't. Normally something on Federal land is investigated by Federal people. Yeah, they might have a jurisdictional agreement, but...

    I dunno. Realistically speaking, it'll probably turn out to be an old burial or something, but it feels a bit hinky.
