(Newser) – Police made a long-awaited arrest over a murder scene that unfolded at the iconic Hollywood sign. In January 2012, two women walking their dogs in Los Angeles' Griffith Park made a morbid discovery: a human head; more body parts were eventually found. Now, 38-year-old Gabriel Campos Martinez has been arrested in connection with the discovery. Prosecutors say Martinez is the former roommate and partner of the victim, 66-year-old Hervey Coronado Medellin, and had since relocated to San Antonio. Martinez has been charged with murder and extradition papers were filed in Texas. Newsy reports:
