LOS ANGELES (AP) — A $50,000 reward is being offered for information leading to a conviction in the dismemberment killing of a man whose severed head was found in the Hollywood Hills.

The City Council approved the reward offer on Tuesday.

A dog walking with two women on Jan. 17 found a plastic bag with a head inside. The next day, cadaver dogs found two hands and two feet.

The coroner’s office identified the remains as those of 66-year-old Hervey Medellin Coronado, a retired Mexicana Airlines employee.

Coronado lived with a roommate in a third floor apartment close to where the body parts were found.
