LOS ANGELES (AP) - Investigators have found a human hand in the
Hollywood wilderness park where a severed head was discovered by
Police say the hand was found in brush Wednesday morning in
Bronson Canyon, a few miles from the Hollywood sign.
The Los Angeles Times says a coroner's cadaver dog found the hand about 50 yards from where the head was discovered on Tuesday.
The head was in a plastic grocery bag and it was pulled from the brush by a dog during a walk.
Investigators are trying to determine the man's identity as they continue to hunt for other body parts in the vast urban park.
Police Cmdr. Andrew Smith says the man may have been killed
elsewhere in recent days and his body dumped in the park. He says
animals may have moved some of the remains.
