Severed head found near Hollywood sign

Los Angeles (CNN) -- A severed head found Tuesday in a park below the famous Hollywood sign is that of a man between 40 and 60 years old, with salt-and-pepper-colored hair, a Los Angeles County coroner's spokesman said Wednesday.

Police with cadaver dogs and coroner's investigators returned Wednesday morning to the scene to search for evidence, but no other body parts have been found, Deputy Chief Coroner Ed Winter said Wednesday.

Los Angeles police homicide investigators have begun checking recent missing-person reports for leads on the man's identity, Winter said.

Two people discovered the head in a bag Tuesday afternoon in Griffith Park in the Hollywood Hills area, Los Angeles police said.

The two told park rangers they were walking about nine dogs in the Bronson Canyon area of the park around 2:30 p.m. when two of the dogs started playing with an object in a bag, police told CNN.

The rangers in turn notified robbery and homicide detectives, who are handling the investigation.

Police said the head did not appear to have been there long, but the coroner would have to make a determination.
