Las Vegas police are investigating after human remains were found Tuesday morning in a desert area in the far northeast valley.
Metropolitan Police Department officers were notified just after 9:45 a.m. of bones found in the area of Beesley Drive and Las Vegas Boulevard North, just north of Nellis Air Force Base, spokeswoman Laura Meltzer said.
Metro’s homicide unit also responded to the scene to assist with the preliminary investigation. The death did not initially appear suspicious, Meltzer said Tuesday afternoon.
The Clark County coroner’s office will identify the remains and determine the cause and manner of death.
