LA Police Found Severed Head in Truck of Man , Wanted For Theft, Report Says.

A Las Vegas man fleeing police in a stolen truck was eventually stopped, only for the officers to find coolers full of body parts, including a severed head , inside, according to cops. Eric Holland, 57, was arrested Thursday after leading police on a chase when they tried to pull him over on unrelated charges, according to the police report from the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department released Sunday. Holland allegedly switched trucks , then was eventually tracked to a nearby apartment complex.

David Westbrook, Holland's public defender, argued that it made no sense for Holland to lead the police to the body parts in the truck while they were chasing him if he knew the remains were there.

He argued that police and prosecutors had to prove that the body was in the car, that Holland knew about it, and that he killed the man while vying to get his client out on bail as the case progressed.

Judge Harmony Letizia issued an order for Holland to remain in jail until a Jan. 27 hearing that will allow for the presentation of more evidence in the case.

"Proof is evident and the presumption is great that Mr. Holland committed murder," Letizia said.

The Clark County coroner said Miller died Dec. 23 from multiple gunshot wounds and ruled the case a homicide.

Westbrook asked Ricardo Auerbach, the police detective who found Miller's head in a cooler, if he first obtained a warrant to search the Avalanche.

Nevada prison records say Holland used names including John Carl Hall, Phil Whidden, Robert Daniel Lauer and Steven Tauber.
