Murder Mystery

Victim of Grisly Hollywood Hills Murder Was Gay

CBS 2 News in L.A. is reporting that the victim of a gruesome murder in the Hollywood Hills has been identified as Hervey Medellin, a former Mexicana Airlines employee who was openly gay.  Last week the head of Medellin, 66, was found by a hiker in Bronson Park, not far from the famed Hollywood sign. The victim’s hands and feet were later discovered nearby by police.

According to the news report, Medellin lived with his boyfriend in a Hollywood apartment, which has been searched along with other units in his complex. No suspects have been named but investigators continue to look in the Hollywood Hills for the rest of Medellin’s corpse. Though there is much speculation regarding the circumstances of his death, there is no word on whether or not the murder is being considered a hate crime.

    Head, hands, & feet found seperately? Sounds like a hate crime to me!

    Start with ‘meth-ed out young hustler went berserk’…. and work the investigation from there. Seen this too many times.

    heads feet and hands cut off means the murderer watches those lame CSI shows.
