Professional dog walker Lauren Kornberg and her mother came upon a severed head in a bag while hiking near the Hollywood sign on January 17th, but denies shopping photos of her discovery to paparazzi agencies and posing with the bagged head.
“I didn’t have a camera. I didn’t have a cellphone. My mother and I stopped two hikers who used their cellphones to call 911,” Korberg told Gawker, adding that the distress of her finding has caused many a sleepless night. Kornberg explained that the hikers were taking photos, but she was too busy controlling her dogs to pay much attention.
“I believe they snapped the photo. I had nine dogs on a leash, and they were bouncing around like crazy.
“I thought I saw him snap a few pictures. And I said, ‘Did you take photos?’ and he said ‘I tried,’ but that it didn’t work or something. Right after they did that, they were like, ‘OK bye.’ I think they have taken a shot and left.”
More body parts have been found since Tuesday’s discovered in the Hollywood Hills.
