Two unidentified women hike in Griffith Park near the Hollywood sign after a plastic bag containing a human head was discovered Tuesday by two women walking their dogs on a nearby trail off Canyon Drive.

There’s a $50,000 reward out for information leading to a conviction in the murder of a man whose severed head was found in a plastic bag by hikers January in the Hollywood Hills.

Cadaver dogs later found the man’s severed hands and feet nearby.

Coroners identified the remains as those of 66-year-old Hervey Medellin Coronado.

Los Angeles City Councilman Tom LaBonge said LAPD detectives asked the council for the reward money to help find out what happened to Coronado.

“He was a victim of a horrific, ugly crime, of homicide and dismembering of his body," LaBonge said. "Therefore, there’s no question that the individual responsible for this should be brought to justice.”

Corondado was a retired Mexicana Airlines employee who lived in Hollywood.
