A 2nd barrel was found on May 2nd by the 8News Now I-Team, several hundred feet away from where the first one was discovered and was also along the shoreline. Holes in the barrel showed nothing inside.
Lieutenant Ray Spencer of the Homicide Unit for the LVMPD confirmed the barrel was empty.

The only released information is the individual is an adult male who was most likely murdered in the late 1970s to early 1980s. The time length was identified by the shoes the individual was wearing.
