BSO investigating if head found at Dania belongs to body found in barrel

DANIA BEACH, FL (WFLX) - The Broward Sheriff's Office is now trying to figure out if a human head found in Dania Beach Monday is linked to body parts found in a barrel last week.

BSO says Willie Hernandez, an employee at used auto parts store, found the head while a canal bank in Dania Beach was being cleaned with a backhoe. "I had seen a bunch of plastic and a white bucket at the edge of the rocks, lying flat down," Hernandez said. "I saw blood coming out, and, I thought, maybe it was bait, from people who fish there. The head was inside the bucket. The hair was surrounded by concrete."

Investigators were looking into the possibility that the body parts were connected to human remains found last week in a Fort Lauderdale canal. In that case, Fort Lauderdale police did not specify the parts they found.

Investigators asked anyone with information to call BSO Homicide Detective Jeff Kogan at 954-321-4210 or Broward Crime Stoppers, anonymously, at 954-493-8477.
