Crime Scene Tape (MGN Online)

Authorities are investigating after someone reported finding a body Tuesday in a remote area west of Las Vegas.

Officers received a report just after 9 a.m. of a body found near Carpenter Canyon and Lee Spring Canyon roads, southwest of Mount Charleston, said Officer Aden OcampoGomez with Las Vegas Metropolitan Police.

Homicide detectives are en route to the area, which OcampoGomez described as remote and difficult to access.

It's too early to determine if there are any signs of foul play, he said, and no other details were immediately available.
