Mounted Los Angeles Police officers search the Bronson Canyon area of Griffith Park after a human head was discovered Tuesday by two people walking their dogs below the Hollywood Sign in Los Angeles, Jan. 18, 2012. Investigators have also located two severed feet.

The body part tally in the Hollywood Hills continues to climb with the discovery of two severed feet near a hiking trail in Bronson Canyon Park on Wednesday afternoon.

Two severed hands were found by Los Angeles Police Department investigators earlier on Wednesday following the discovery of a severed head in a bag by two dogs on Tuesday.

Officials have not identified the victim, but believe he may have been of Armenian descent. 

The cause of death has not been determined, but police do not believe the man died at the location where the body parts have been found. 

The death is thought to be recent given the lack of decomposition.
