Severed head found in bag by Hollywood sign

Posted: Updated:

LOS ANGELES (CBS 8) - A severed head was found in a bag near the famous Hollywood sign. After inspection, authorities reported the head is real and now a murder investigation is underway.

Police say two dog walkers with about nine dogs found the head at a popular trail on Tuesday. The head reportedly rolled out of a bag that the dogs were playing with.

One resident who lives nearby had this to say:

"I was shocked because in the many years that I've lived here nothing like this has ever happened. We've had some drug dealing, some car break-ins, but never a body."

The victim is believed to be a male. Police say there is little decomposition. Investigators will use dental records to attempt to identify the victim.
