Police say the dismembered remains were those of Hervey Medellin, 66, a retired Mexicana Airlines employee who lived with a roommate near the hiking trail. Dog walkers discovered a head in a plastic bag along the trail on Tuesday, according to local reports.
Los Angeles County coroner officials said they were able to identify Medellin through fingerprints on one of his hands, which were found 50 yards away from the head on Wednesday by investigators and a cadaver-sniffing dog.
Friends told KCBS-TV that the Bronson Canyon area of Griffith Park where the body parts were found was one Medellin's favorite hiking spots.
Neighbor Andrew Hill, who lived in the apartment below Medellin, told the Los Angeles Times that he heard an angry, late-night scuffle in the victimís apartment about three weeks ago.
Police are questioning at least one person in connection with the case, the Times said. No arrests have been made.
Cops were also questioning neighbors in the region, including Brad Pitt's bodyguard.
The star and his gal pal, Angelina Jolie, have a house in the Hollywood Hills near where the body parts were found.
Dog-walker Lauren Kornberg, whose golden retriever, Ollie, discovered the head on Tuesday, said she initially thought it was a movie prop.
"Our assumption was that there was always people filming up there, and it was a prop," Kornberg, who was walking the with her mother when they made the grisly find, she told HLN. "We walked down the ravine and got closer and realized it was a freshly severed human head."
Police concluded a search of the 4,200-acre Griffith Park on Thursday, and the park was reopened to the public on Friday.
