Dogs Find Human Head Near Famed Hollywood Sign

Video

"The head appears to be rather new."

LOS ANGELES (The Blaze/AP) -- Detectives are expected to resume searching an area of Los Angeles where two dogs found a human head in a plastic bag.

Police say two dog walkers with about nine dogs came across the bag on a popular trail below the Hollywood sign in the Hollywood Hills on Tuesday.

Sgt. Mitzi Fierro told KCAL-TV that two dogs began playing with the bag. She says an object fell out and the dog walkers realized it was a severed head, believed to be from a male.

She says the bag was visible from the trail and that it didn't appear to have been in the area for a long time.

"The head appears to be rather new. There are not a lot of signs of decomposition yet," Fierro said.

Coroner's investigators will attempt to identify the victim through dental records.

Detectives are expected to search the area again at daybreak Wednesday.
