Where Folks Want to Travel Before They Die

The iconic Hollywood sign in Los Angeles, California is viewed in this October 2, 2012 file photo. Police have arrested a suspect over a grisly killing in California two years ago, in which a severed head was found near the Hollywood sign, a spokesman said March 10, 2014. Gabriel Campos Martinez was detained in Texas over the January 2012 slaying of 66-year-old Hervey Medellin, whose other body parts were subsequently found scattered not far from the world-famous tourist spot. Martinez, 38, was arrested on Sunday and booked on suspicion of murder, the LAPD said in a statement. He remains in custody pending extradition to Los Angeles. AFP PHOTO / Frederic J.
