BULLHEAD CITY–The body of an unidentified male was discovered Monday night around 8 p.m. in an area of Bryan Drive in Bullhead City.
Bullhead City Police Lt. Nick Sessions said his agency was dispatched to the area for a welfare check on a subject down on Bryan Drive, next to El Palacio.

The victim’s name is being withheld pending next of kin notification.
The cause of death will be determined by the Mohave County Medical Examiner’s Office.

It is not confirmed that this victim’s death was heat related, however, with temperatures exceeding 120 degrees this week, law enforcement and medical officials urge residents to take the necessary precautions when out in the heat elements.
