A former Las Vegas mayor who also served as an attorney for Mafia chieftains was impressed with the possibility that the Mob killed enemies and dumped them in Lake Mead.
Oscar Goodman, who represented Meyer Lansky, Frank Rosenthal and Anthony “Tony the Ant” Spilotro, stated he had no idea how the body of a man found in a barrel in the receding waters of the lake got there.
Still, he declared, “Dumping a body in a barrel and then dropping it in a lake is not a bad way to get rid of someone.”
“But nobody ever dreamt that lake would be as low as it is today,” he added in an interview with The Daily Mail.
The victim’s body was discovered close to Hemenway Harbor on May 1
