Man Jailed In Texas In Severed Head Case

LOS ANGELES (March 10, 2014) Gabriel Campos Martinez, 38, was in custody Monday in San Antonio after his arrest Sunday on a warrant stemming from the discovery of a severed human head found two years ago near the Hollywood sign in Los Angeles, police said.

Martinez was held without bond Monday in the murder of Hervey Coronado Medellin of Los Angeles.

Two women discovered what turned out to be Medellin's head while walking several dogs through a trail in Griffith Park.

Investigators assisted by a cadaver dog named Indiana Bones found more body parts, including hands and feet, near the same area where the head was discovered.
