Medical Examiner's Office Identifies Body Found in Irrigation Ditch

Posted: Updated:
The Washoe County Medical Examiner’s Office has identified the body found Thursday afternoon in an irrigation ditch near the University of Nevada.

Police say they found the decomposed body of 28-year-old Anthony Vaux near the 2000 block of Valley Road across from the Christina M. Hixson Softball Park.

The woman who found the body told us she was in her backyard when she saw something in the irrigation ditch. She thought it was a cow at first, but when she looked closer, she realized it was human remains and called authorities.

When authorities arrived on scene, they say it looked like the man had been dead for several days.

The official cause of death remains under investigation pending a toxicology test.

Authorities tell us Vaux doesn’t have a fixed address, but he does have ties to this area.
