Las Vegas police arrested a man after possible human remains were found encased in concrete this month near Lake Mead National Recreation Area.
Edward Bedrosian, 54, was booked Saturday into Clark County Detention Center on one count of first-degree murder with a deadly weapon, court records show.
The remains were found covered with a tarp and dirt May 2, the lake’s spokeswoman, Christie Vanover, said at the time. They were found about 9:50 a.m. in a desert area just south of popular cliff-jumping site Nelson’s Landing.
The Clark County coroner’s office has not identified the remains or released a cause or manner of death.
Court records also identify Bedrosian as Edward Bedrusian and Edward Coleman.
