Dog Walkers Stumble Upon Human Head In Hollywood Hills

HOLLYWOOD HILLS (CBS) — Authorities say a human head was found near a popular hiking trail in the Hollywood Hills.

The discovery was made 2:30 p.m. Tuesday by dog walkers after two of their nine dogs started playing with the head, which was wrapped in a plastic bag.

Police say the body part was located above Bronson Canyon, near Canyon Drive and Brush Fire Road, police reported.

Sky2 was reporting overhead Tuesday afternoon, where people could be seen walking their dogs and driving by the crime scene.

Later that evening investigators closed off the trail while they launched a homicide investigation and scanned the area for additional body parts.

They suspended their search upon nightfall and said they’d resume early Wednesday morning.

No further details were released.

    That’s one way of losing your mind. Don’t mind me, I was a head of myself. It had to be a male head because only a female could make any man lose their mind.

    These comments are tasteless. You should all be ashamed of yourselves. You’ll never get aHEAD in life. For shame.

    I wonder if the police have checked the local head shops.

    As Benny Hill used to say “What’s that up the road a head?”

  • Alpha Kenny Juan

    Shortly after the hikers found the head, a homeless guy walked up to the police and said, “Officer, I think I can identify the guy. I think it was my friend.” The police allowed the guy to pass under their police tape, and they watched as the homeless guy picked up the head, looked at it in the eye, then dropped it and walked away, shaking his head.
    “Well?” the police asked. “What’s the verdict? Was he your friend?”
    “No,” the guy said, frowning. “My friend was taller.”
