HOLLYWOOD (LALATE) – The death of Hervey Medellin, the dismembered Hollywood resident, remains a mystery. Remains of Hervey Medellin (photo above) were scatted in the Hollywood Hills this month, his dismembered head, hands, and feet discarded in dense sections of Griffith Park. But officials confirm to news that Hervey’s death remains a mystery with few murder clues. They have yet to indicate if they have leads at all in the Medellin case.
The location of Hervey Medellin’s murder remains at issue. Officials are unsure where he was murdered. They do not believe he was murdered in his residence nor in Griffith Park.
Yet, Hervey Medellin was screaming in his apartment late at night recently. A neighbor called the sound a scream or shout of terror. Also, Hervey Medellin’s friend Vilma Aguilar tells news that Hervey had recently met a new friend in Griffith Park. Hervey met that friend hiking in the Park and had since remained in contact.
Also at issue remains motive. Hervey Medellin was a retired Mexicana Airlines flight attendant of more than twenty-years. But one friend wonders if Hervey was targeted for his art. Officials would not confirm if art remained missing after the murder. Hervey reportedly had amassed a large collection of expensive art over the years.
Additionally unclear was Hervey’s living arrangement. It remains unclear how and when he was reported missing. One report claims he lived at home with his boyfriend. The neighbor who heard a large loud altercation in the middle night, however, claims the voice she heard was Hervey’s.
LAPD has focused on belongings inside Hervey’s 6200 block of Delongpre Avenue. On Thursday they towed a silver Honda, believed to be Hervey’s.
Finally, LAPD believes the murder was targeted and not the act of a serial killer. “There’s no reason to believe that this is part of any kind of a series,” LAPD Cmdr. Andy Smith said in a news briefing. “There’s no other evidence to indicate that this is anything besides just a single, individual isolated occurrence.”
