    NV - Kathleen Ploutz, 61, found murdered, Lake Mead, 17 July 2016


    Homicide detectives investigating body found at Lake Mead

    On July 18 at 8 a.m. National Park Service Rangers were dispatched to the desert area near the Special Events Beach at Boulder Basin in the Lake Mead National Recreation Area for reports of a possible deceased female.

    The Rangers arrived and located a deceased female who appeared to have obvious signs of trauma to her body.

    The LVMPD Homicide Section was requested by the National Park Service to assist in the investigation.

    The investigation by the LVMPD Homicide Section indicated the deceased woman had injuries that appeared to be consistent with being the victim of a homicide.

    The motive behind the homicide remains unknown; however, this appears to be an isolated incident.

    This is the 97th homicide investigated by the LVMPD in 2016. The identity of the victim, as well as the cause and manner of death, will be released by the Clark County Coroner’s Office.

    This investigation remains ongoing and anyone with any information about this incident is urged to contact Crime Stoppers by phone at 702-385-5555.

    Still unsolved:


    Kathleen Ploutz was found dead on Boulder Beach near Lake Mead on July 18.

    Police say she was brutally stabbed multiple times.

    They think someone picked her up from her home the night before and drove her to Boulder Beach where she was killed.

    Police say Ploutz was a mother and very nice, innocent lady and cannot understand a motive for the death.
