LOS ANGELES (CNS) – Human remains were discovered today in Griffith Park.
Los Angeles Police Department Investigators went to the general area of Griffith Park Drive and Camp Road about 9 a.m.
Few details were being released by the LAPD, which preliminarily classified the case as “a potential homicide investigation.”
Chief Park Ranger Joe Losorelli told KTLA5 that the remains were found up the canyon and reported by someone walking a dog.
The remains appeared to be those of a man in his 40s or 50s, possibly white or Hispanic, and may have been dismembered by animals, he said.
“There’s different body parts laying around,” Losorelli said.
It was unknown how long the remains were there before being discovered.
