Body parts found in Hollywood hills identified

The Los Angeles County coroner's office has identified the man whose severed head, hands and feet were found in the Hollywood hills this week, but his name isn't being released, Deputy Chief Coroner Ed Winter said.

The body parts were found Tuesday, when two people noticed their dogs dragging a plastic grocery bag with the head inside from a bush near a dirt trail, police said.

Winter said this week that the head is that of a man between 40 and 60 years old, with salt-and-pepper-colored hair.

    Wow.
    Nasty.
    I just love that they try to connect Brad Pitt to it because he lives in the area (as if he's the only one!) and because of the movie 'Seven".

      Not a colour, strictly speaking, but about 50/50 grey/black. Like me.

      It doesn't necessarily include black hair – it could be dark brown.

    It didn't post. CNN doesn't want me to say anything about Brad Pitt. It's a conspiracy.

      Who's walking with a limp? Brad Pitt or the decapitated guy?

      Brad Pitt. But I'd be walking with a limp too if I had no feet.

    Is the California poparazzi getting all this. Are they going to show the "head" on Inside Edition? This cannot be real...gotta be a Hollywood stage prop.

    CNN – Why do you waste my time like this. Wow. Now there's a "decap" walking the streets with a limp. Brad Pitt and all. I'm starting to get a headache...forgot to take my blood pressure medication. My peekapoo is trained to leave bags alone: 1. She could suffocate. 2. She could choke eating the plastic. 3. That disturbing a crime scene.
