    One way is to have a good eye for art, and discover artists early in their careers. Later, as values rise, one finds oneself in possession of much "expensive art."

    I haven't a clue how reliable this article is but it's from the WSJ and can't find a date on it. My apolgies if it's a duplicate, old news or bad news. xoxo

    Police Puzzled by Body Parts In Two States

    Now, law-enforcement officials in California and Arizona are wondering if both finds are part of the same gruesome puzzle. DNA testing is being performed on the body parts to "see if there is a match," said Pima County Sheriff's Deputy Dawn Barkman in Arizona.

    It could be the same person since he (ID'd victim in CA) has been gone for a while or out of town since the holidays or so. If it is our Tucson body found, then I hope DNA matching isn't holding it up! When Sylar Newton went missing his evidence/dna was sent to Nevada. Garrr. Out of state 6 weeks behind testing doesn't stop crimes, then not enough sent to test delayed his id even more!

    I read up on the gangs in LA and here. Oh boy, found out so much more. garrr again.

    I still wonder if the remains found in LA had been frozen until disposed? Does freezing preserve a body? A regualr freezer or refridg freezer? Wow if so. They kept saying in CA it was a recent death on the body parts, 1-2 days old. I wonder about frozen body parts being spread from here to CA. Someone smart will answer that soon, I hope.

    RIP dude. No one wants to die that way, may you RIP. I'm sure there's much more to come out or all will be revealed if nevarious reason caused him to die.

    eta, nevarious reasons, how dumb, if a body is chopped up, my mind just blows it. Tying in body parts I can do, but the thought of it, who they are, just scares me with grief when it's matched. How in the hell can someone do that to a child or an adult? Sick mofo's.....jmo

    http://online.wsj.com/article/SB1000...901778656.html

    ETA, found the date, it was about 10 to 11 days ago. Haven't found a word on either case for days either. I guess we wait...

    Here in older link that theory is discounted.Video.

    "Meanwhile, investigators in California were downplaying any possible connection between the body parts case in Los Angeles and a dismembered body found earlier this month in a rural area of Tuscon, Ariz.

    Read more about the Hollywood case on NBCLosAngeles.com

    "It's fairly implausible that somebody would drive parts of a dead body five hours from Arizona to our Griffith Park," Los Angeles Police Cmdr. Andrew Smith told Reuters."

    Is anyone else curious about the lack of any developments and/or follow-up stories about the case in the last 5-6 days?

    In a January 24 LA Times article which includes a KTLA video it was reported that the boyfriend was planning on having a new roommate move in shortly: http://www.latimes.com/news/nationwo...,1867634.story

    Does this seem like a huge red flag to anyone else?
    Also, the boyfriend has only been identified as "Gabriel" but details such as his age, race, last name, etc have not been released. Can anyone here at WS scooby doo any info on "Gabriel"?

    I live in a media area that covers Los Angeles news and this case was huge, for just a minute... then it went silent.

    It seemed, for a second, that the live-in boyfriend was being pointed at; a neighbor that lived in the building heard commotion in the apartment one night, just a few weeks before Hervey Medellin went missing. (When was it said Hervey Medellin left? And when was he reported missing?) She overheard slamming of objects and screaming, but never called police. Then Hervey Medellin went missing.

    And that's the last I really heard with the media out here.

    The way the article above is written it sounds like Hervey Medellin was a very private person, and maybe was involved in something no one is quite aware of?!

    If I happen chance come across Gabriels whole name in the news from out here I will post it. This entire story seems under wraps until something bigger breaks.

    "It will take time," said Beck. ""This is a case that will depend on forensics and much work is yet to be done."

    "It's hard to solve that type of crime, especially if someone cleans up their tracks, and they did what they did, nature kind of took its course," said walker Rocky Vanoost. "Coyotes are up there, they can carry stuff away, so it might take a while- absolutely."

    Connected?Pun unintended- but stranger things have happened...

    " Porn actor Luka Rocco Magnotta, 29, is being sought on a Canada-wide warrant after a dismembered torso was found in a suitcase in Montreal and body parts mailed to Ottawa."

    Magnotta has been linked in the past as having had a romantic involvement with schoolgirl sex killer Homolka

    I wonder if this suspect spent time in L.A.at the time of this horrible crime.



    http://www.globaltoronto.com/breakin...008/story.html
    Police allege Luka Rocco Magnotta, 29, a man with a controversial past, is behind the grisly crime. He is also known by the names Eric Clinton Newman and Vladimir Romanov.

    Magnotta is not known to the police, but the name is well-circulated on the Internet as belonging to a bisexual model and porn star, allegedly appearing in kitten killing videos posted on YouTube.

    FBI allegedly started investigating this a few days ago.

    http://www.madcowprod.com/2012/05/30...ollywood-head/
    The murder-decapitation of a 66-year old man whose head was found beneath the Hollywood Sign four months ago is now a Federal case, the MadCow Morning News has learned. The development is a sure sign that the LAPD’s theory about a gay love triangle gone wrong is no longer being pursued. A more plausible reason for the beheading emerged in an angle that was barely reported at the time: Medellin went missing after leaving on a “business trip” to Tijuana.

    Last week the Mad Cow MorningNews reported exclusively that the decapitated head found in a plastic bag on a hiking trail in the shadow of the Hollywood Sign four months ago belonged to a man known to local authorities as the former "concierge" in Los Angeles for the now-defunct Cali drug cartel.
    Drug related? There was a big Colombian cartel called the Medellin Cartel in the 90s, but that's because they were based out of Medellín, Colombia. Coincidence I think. However, one of their main rivals was the Cali cartel mentioned in the article.

    "In addition to the YouTube activity and the obvious similarities in the methodology of the Jun killing and the Hollywood Sign murder, which both involved severed body parts placed in prominent locations, Facebook postings on one of the many accounts attributed to Mr. Magnotta indicate he was in Los Angeles less than one month after the Hollywood Sign killing. In the postings, which were dated February 19, the Facebook user who identifies themselves as Mr. Magnotta tries to arrange a meeting with a friend and informs them he is “doing massages” in Los Angeles. He lists a phone number that traces to an L.A. escort agency as the best way to contact him".

    I still think they should question Mel Gibson . I think this is what he did right after his telephone screaming mad man debockle . His doctors tried ativan and valume for mel but It didn't calm him down plus he liked the taste and was found eating the coloured tablets as though they were MnM's..Finally they simply told him where the guy was hiding with the diabolic dish so he could record all of mel's politefull phone calls..And the rest was History LOL...Oh by the way notice there havn't been any more of mel's telephone rants caught since the head was found.....Coincedence Hmmmmm I Wonder..HeHeHeHe

    I was in the bookstore this afternoon and picked up a book about bizarre murderers. Murdering, dismembering, mailing body parts through the mail is not new ... it might be a case of man murder's gay lovers because he can't cope with being gay ... in the UK the sentence was reduced to 9 years because the accused was delusional about his potential relationship with the female victim and good behavior. In this case, we have a copy cat murder scenario with the only difference being that the accused created a false, online representation of who he is. Given how cocky Eric Newman is, I suspect that he has murdered before and given that he was in LA around the time of the Hollywood Sign murder, I think there's a good possibility that he was involved. I read upthread that the Arizona murder was determined to not be connected with the LA murder. Has that possible connection been re-examined in light of the Montreal murder?

    "The Los Angeles Police Department has contacted Montreal police in regards to a possible connection between accused-killer Luka Magnotta and an unsolved January murder in L.A.

    Montreal police confirmed Thursday that detectives from L.A. have been in touch, probing whether Magnotta may have been involved in the gruesome murder of a 66-year-old man in Hollywood"

    Los Angeles police have contacted their counterparts in Montreal about a possible connection between Luka Magnotta and the so-called Hollywood Hills murder case earlier this year, but the L.A. Times is reporting there is no link between the two

    “Any time you’re investigating something, you see something similar, of course you’re going to be in contact,” said Borihanh. “You try and share information as much as you can.

    “Our investigators are in contact with Canadian investigators and they’re just trying to determine Magnotta’s whereabouts during our investigation of the Hollywood Hills murder and that’s it.”

    In January, a head in a plastic shopping bag was found by a man walking his dog in a Los Angeles park near the fabled Hollywood sign. The victim was identified as Hervey Medellin, a 66-year-old retired employee of Mexicana Airlines.

    His hands and feet were found later in a nearby shallow hole in the ground. Police made it clear they are not yet linking Magnotta’s case and the murder in L.A. They simply want to know whether Magnotta was there during the crime

    So if luka M had nothing to do with Hervey M's murder, who is responsible?

    An arrest has been made in this case.

    March 10, 2014

    Los Angeles police said Monday a suspect in Texas has been arrested in connection with the murder of a man whose body parts--including a head--were found scattered across Griffith Park in 2012.

    Gabriel Campos Martinez, 38 -- described in an LAPD statement as "the suspect responsible" for the murder of Hervey Medellin -- was arrested Sunday in San Antonio. Martinez was the victim's roommate and partner, law enforcement sources said.

    He was being held without bail Monday pending extradition proceedings.

    "According to LA magazine , Martinez and Medellin were lovers and living together at the time of the murder. Martinez allegedly fled California after taking a police lie detector.

    Police have said they believe the victim was killed elsewhere and his remains dumped just inside the park, which attracts hundreds of hikers and dog walkers on most days.

    Although rustic, it is just a short distance from film studios and other Hollywood attractions."




    bbm.
    "Speaking to news media at an unrelated press conference Monday morning, LAPD Chief Charlie Beck described Martinez as the “former roommate” of Medellin. Beck called the killing a “particularly grisly homicide” and a “very difficult case.”

    Martinez had been a person of interest since the beginning of the investigation, Beck said.

    County prosecutors worked with police on the investigation and traveled to San Antonio to assist with the arrest, Beck said.

    Check back for updates on this developing story".
