The Clark County coroner’s office has identified a man whose body was found Friday in a houseboat in the Boulder Basin area of Lake Mead.
John Eldon Stafford, 69, of Henderson, was found slumped over inside a houseboat that was parked on a trailer approximately a quarter mile from the water.
A park visitor notified National Park Service rangers after noticing a foul smell in the area.
It is not known how long Stafford had been dead before his body was found.
The coroner’s office said a determination of the cause of death is pending.
