Man found dead last week at Nellis AFB identified

The Clark County Coroner’s Office has identified the man whose body was found last week inside a perimeter fence at Nellis Air Force Base.

66-year-old Detlef Mann was found dead the morning of August 16. His body was discovered in a dirt lot near the golf course on the southern end of the base, according to the Review Journal.

It’s still unclear if Mann had any connection to the base or if foul play was involved.

Officials are still trying to determine where he was from.

Nellis AFB is located in southern Nevada and is home to more squadrons than any other USAF base.
