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.
