Carlsbad, NM — Authorities now know more about a body found last week in a dry lake bed in Carlsbad, New Mexico. Medical investigators say the remains of 29-year old Eric Ahlskog were found by hikers in an area known as Champion Bay, or Brantley Lake. Examiners are still trying to determine exactly how Ahlskog died. He vanished in July of 2011 and was last seen near the lake where his body was found, just north of Carlsbad.
