Construction workers find body in far west Las Vegas


LAS VEGAS (KTNV) – Las Vegas police are investigating a “suspicious death” in the far west of the valley.

According to Lt. Dave Valenta of the Las Vegas City Police Department found the body of a man around 7 a.m. in the desert area north of Alta Drive and Cross Bridge Road, west of 215

According to the police, the man had trauma to his head.

“It’s not a very busy area, it looks like there is some equipment in there so it’s not in the middle of a construction site,” Lt. said. Valenta.

“It’s a popular hiking area and some construction equipment is also kept here.”

Valenta said based on the preliminary investigation, police believe the body had not been in the location for very long.

Forensic medicine plans to reveal the man’s identity and cause of death at a later date.
