A man’s severed head was found by some playing dogs in the Hollywood Hills. Details are sketchy, but it appears to be from someone in his 40s to 60s.
LOS ANGELES – Los Angeles homicide detectives are searching a Hollywood wilderness park for clues after a severed human head was found in a bag there.
Police Cmdr. Andrew Smith says a dozen robbery-homicide detectives and a coroner’s cadaver dog began searching the brush in the Bronson Canyon area Wednesday morning.
Two dog walkers called authorities Tuesday afternoon after one of their animals pulled the plastic grocery bag out of the brush off a trail and began playing with it.
“Two of the dogs began to play with the bag and what appeared to be an object. While the dogs were playing with it, at some point the object came out of the bag and they discovered that it was a head — a severed head,” Sgt. Mitzi Fierro told CBS station KCAL-TV. The bag was visible from the trail, she said.
Smith says the bag contained the recently severed head of a man in his 40s to 60s. He hasn’t been identified but police are checking reports of missing persons and coroner’s investigators will check dental records.
