LAS VEGAS (AP) - The Clark County coroner has identified the human remains found encased in concrete at Lake Mead.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reported (https://bit.ly/2rbmnZy ) Sunday that the body is that of Jon Ernest Gomez.

The coroner’s office says Gomez died from a gunshot wound to the head and blunt-force trauma.

On May 2, lake employees reported a foul odor to police. Responding officers found a body inside concrete and covered with dirt and a tarp but did not know initially whether the remains were human.

Police arrested Edward Bedrosian on May 13 in connection with the homicide. He faces one charge of murder with a deadly weapon and is being held without bail at the Clark County Detention Center.
