Victim Identified in Hollywood Murder Mystery
(LOS ANGELES) -- The victim of a gruesome Hollywood murder mystery has been identified, but investigators have not released his name.
A decapitated head, severed hands and feet and no leads seemed to be the perfect recipe for a Hollywood whodunnit. Except this time, the Los Angeles Police Department has been facing a real homicide.
The search for more body parts in rugged terrain beneath the famous Hollywood sign ended Thursday, but police still did not have many leads in the case. According to ABC affiliate KABC7 in Los Angeles, the LAPD has searched an apartment building in connection to the investigation. Officials said no one was detained for questioning, but a car was towed during the search.
The Los Angeles Police Department told KABC7 the apartment complex is located two miles south from Bronson Canyon park where the body parts were found.
The discovery of a man’s head in a bag on Tuesday and set of hands and feet on Wednesday launched a search for more body parts. The investigation centered along a hiking trail beneath the iconic Hollywood sign and not far from Brad Pitt’s house.
The victim has only been identified as a male between the age of 40 and 60 years old.
