Severed head found under Hollywood Sign

Police are investigating the morbid discovery of a severed human head found along a hiking trail below the Hollywood sign today. Two dog walkers discovered the remains inside a bag in California’s Bronson Canyon Park and notified Park Rangers.

Investigators are treating the case as a homicide.

According to a LAPD press release:

‘The dog walkers had approximately nine dogs with them when two of the dogs started playing with an object in a bag.

‘When they looked at the object, they realised it was a human head. They immediately notified the Park Rangers¬† who in turn notified LAPD.

Investigators said the head appears to be a male that did not appear to have been in the area long.
