Elderly man found decapitated inside apartment

INGLEWOOD, Calif. -- The decapitated body of an elderly man was found inside an apartment in Inglewood Thursday, sources tell Eyewitness News.

The victim's son, Robin Hollis, says his brother discovered their father's body.

Inglewood police are searching for a suspect, a motive and for the man's head, which is missing from the gruesome crime scene, according to family members.

"He did a good job in raising us and everything, so you know I just don't understand why somebody would take out all this anger on him," Robin Hollis said.
