January 19, 2002|From Times Staff Reports

Police cordoned off an apartment complex Friday in the southwest area of the city after discovering possible evidence linked to the body of a decapitated man found in a trash bin the previous night.

Detectives would not say what they found at the complex in the 4000 block of Palmwood Drive.

The body was discovered about a block away, but the head has not been found. The man's name was not released pending notification of his family.

"We're protecting the area as a possible crime scene," Det. Jeff Nolte said, adding that police are not close to making an arrest.
