Severed Human Head Found on Trail Near Hollywood Sign

iStockphoto/Thinkstock(LOS ANGELES) -- Dog walkers in Southern California discovered a severed human head in a bag Tuesday afternoon while hiking in the Hollywood Hills, authorities said.

The walkers found the severed head as they walked their dogs on the trail near the famed Hollywood sign.

“While the dogs were playing with it, at some point the object came out of the bag and they discovered it was a head.  A severed head,” Los Angeles police Sgt. Mitzi Fierro told ABC News' Los Angeles affiliate KABC-TV.

Authorities said the head belonged to a male victim.

“The head appears to be rather new.  There are not a lot of signs of decomposition yet,” Fierro told KABC.

Detectives plan to resume their search for the victim’s body parts Wednesday morning.
