Los Angeles police detectives were at the scene of a hiking trail below the Hollywood sign on Tuesday afternoon after a dog found a human head inside a bag.
The detectives are treating the case as a possible homicide, officials said, adding that they are looking for other body parts in the area.
The remains were found by a park ranger about 3:45 p.m. in the rugged hills near the 3200 block of Canyon Drive, said LAPD spokeswoman Sara Faden.
