LAS VEGAS -- Metro police are investigating after human remains were found in the backyard at a Las Vegas home Saturday.
Officers were called to the 1300 block of Gold Ave., near Owens Ave. and Martin Luther King Dr. around 11:15 a.m. Saturday morning. According to police, a homeowner reported finding some suspicious remains in the backyard where he was digging.
Detectives determined that a married couple previously occupied the residence and the male owner leased the residence to the current occupant. Detectives are attempting to locate him and he is considered a person of interest in this case.
They are also attempting to locate the female and have not ruled out the possibility that the body may be that of the female. The identity of the deceased will be withheld pending autopsy by the Clark County Coroners Office and notification of next of kin.
