LOS ANGELES (AP) — Coroner's officials say the man whose dismembered head, hand and feet were found in a Hollywood park is a 66-year-old man from Los Angeles.

Coroner's Lt. David Smith said Friday night that the victim's name is Hervey Medellin.

A dog walker found Medellin's head Tuesday at Bronson Canyon Park, a brushy, wooded expanse of rolling hills just below the Hollywood sign. Police searchers discovered his hands and feet during a two-day search that ended Thursday.
