Hikers find human skull near Hollywood sign in Los Angeles

Hikers found a human skull near the Hollywood sign in Los Angeles over the weekend, authorities told CNN.

Los Angeles Police said a pair of hikers discovered it Saturday afternoon at a trail in Griffith Park near the famous sign, according to CNN affiliate KABC.

The skull appeared to be a few years old, according to park rangers.

The skull was close to where authorities discovered a decapitated head in 2012.

Gabriel Campos-Martinez was charged with murder in 2014 in relation to that case. He was found guilty last year.
