The big question on everyone’s mind for him, though, was if he knew anything about the body found in a barrel at Lake Mead.

”They say you have to do something about the barrel and I said, 'what are you talking about?'” Goodman said. “We have no idea who's in the barrel at this point in time, and even if I know who was in I would not tell the good folks of Channel 13 because they’ll end up in a barrel.”
