  • Case History

    At 2:40 p.m., National Park Service (NPS) was patrolling Lake Mead at Saddle Cove and found the victim floating near the shore and not responsive. They found a makeshift camp on the bank. A search of the campsite did not yield clues as to his identity. His death did not appear suspicious. Authorities refer to him as 'John "Saddle Cove" Doe'.
