Police Seek Killer in Body Parts Case

January 21, 2012

Los Angeles police detectives are searching for the killer of a man whose remains were found in Bronson Canyon Park near the Hollywood sign earlier this week.  The victim has been identified as Hervey Medellin, 66, according to the L.A. County Coroner’s Office. A former Mexicana Airlines employee, Medellin had left the company and lived in the Hollywood area for some time, according to media reports. Medellin’s head was found at about 2:30 p.m. Tuesday on the 3200 block of Canyon Drive. A pair of dog walkers discovered the head after it fell out of a plastic bag that two of their dogs were playing with. Authorities located Medellin’s hands and feet while searching the area Wednesday. They do not believe the body parts had been there long. An earlier theory that the case was connected to the discovery of a human torso in Arizona has been discounted. Investigators had estimated that the victim was between 40 and 60 years old. The head reportedly had gray hair. The search for more body parts continued Thursday but no other human remains were found. By Friday the park was reopened to the public.  Police said a search warrant was served at a Hollywood apartment Thursday in connection with the case. No one has been arrested, Los Angeles Police Department spokesman Richard French said. At least one person has been questioned and detectives are looking to talk to at least one other man, according to media reports. “Detectives are continuing to make investigative progress on the case, and will release more details and developments when they can,” French said. Anyone with information on the case is urged to call 877-LAPD-24-7. All tips can be made anonymously. This report was compiled with information from City News Service.

Stonewall Democratic Club Endorses Osborn

January 21, 2012

Torie Osborn ‘s campaign to win the newly created 50th Assembly District , which includes Beverly Hills, continued to gain support this week with an endorsement from the West Hollywood-based Stonewall Democratic Club . The political veteran has already received backing from the Santa Monica Democratic Club ,  Malibu Democratic Club  and the  Democratic Party of the San Fernando Valley . Osborn garnered 74 percent of the Stonewall Democratic Club vote, besting South Bay Assemblywoman  Betsy Butler  nearly 3-1. Of the 209 votes cast at the club’s annual endorsement meeting on Wednesday, Osborn won 154 to 55. “Stonewall is delighted to throw our full and enthusiastic support behind Torie Osborn,” Stonewall Democratic Club President Stephen David Simon said. “From her response to AIDS while running the Gay and Lesbian Center to her work for tax reform with California Calls , Torie sees the big picture and knows how to transform crisis into lasting progressive change.” The Stonewall Democratic Club was founded in 1975 as a means of uniting the LGBT community and its straight allies within the Democratic Party. “As someone who spent so much of my life working for equality in the feminist and LGBT movements, and for social justice across all communities, this endorsement means so much to me,” Osborn said. “I am honored and humbled by their support.” Prior to the vote, club members heard testimonials on behalf of the candidates. Former state Senator Sheila Kuehl described Osborn as “the real thing,” a longtime LGBT activist whose work spanned the district, from the Los Angeles Gay and Lesbian Center to the Liberty Hill Foundation.
