Hikers make grisly find near the Hollywood sign

The LAPD is investigating a “very old” human skull found in L.A.’s Griffith Park on Saturday.

The skull was seen by hikers near the Hollywood sign at about 2 p.m., and LAPD homicide investigators and Los Angeles County coroner’s office officials arrived at the scene around the Brush Canyon trail shortly thereafter.

Lt. Ryan Schatz with the LAPD called the skull “very old,” though he didn’t know how long it had been in the park or the person’s cause of death, KTLA reports.

Investigators added that they planned to monitor the Griffith Park area throughout the night. Access to the area was closed off for the night.

As of Saturday night, no other body parts have been located.
