LAS VEGAS (AP) - Las Vegas police say they’ve found the body of a person who had apparently been stabbed and then left in a flood channel for two or three weeks.

Authorities say the discovery was reported about 3 p.m. Tuesday in a canal about 300 yards north of B Street and Owens Avenue.

Officers say the partially decomposed body belongs to a male, although his identity has not yet been released.

Police have not identified suspects in the case, and a motive is unclear.

The death marks the 30th homicide in Las Vegas police jurisdiction so far this year.
