The rental car of the California woman found dead last month has been located, the Nye County Sheriff’s Office said late Saturday.
A Las Vegas Metropolitan Police helicopter pilot spotted Margay Edwards’ car in a ravine partially hidden by brush around 1:30 p.m. a few miles from where her body was found.
Nye County Sheriff Tony DeMeo said a joint effort between Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Air crews and local authorities led to the discovery.
ATVs were used to get to the victim’s car, which sustained considerable front-end damage, due to the vehicle’s remote location.
The body of Edwards was found by two men riding ATVs along Hafen Ranch Road on the outskirts of town Sept. 25.
According to her father, Edwards traveled to Pahrump from southern California to visit friends in Pahrump on Sept. 12.
Police have not released the cause of Edward’s death as detectives continue their investigation. Authorities are still gathering clues on a possible motive, as well as who may be responsible for her death.
