Driver held as severed head found in back of a truck

Human remains including a severed head were found in the back of a pick-up truck after police stopped a driver near the Las Vegas Strip.

Officers had ordered Eric Holland, 57, to pull over near the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino.

He switched trucks as he tried to escape, police in Las Vegas said.

He was shot with a Taser as he was arrested on December 23.

In the back of one of the two vehicles, police discovered human remains including a severed head inside cool boxes, according to KLAS, a local news outlet.
