Skull In Suitcase
Posted By: Michelle Jacobs
But an Arizona woman apparently had a human skull in a suitcase.
TSA screeners, who check all luggage before its loaded onto the airplane, found the skull packed in the suitcase.
Captain John Ivanoff of the Tucson Airport Authority said "we looked at it further and tried to determine who it belonged to and why it was there?"
She told them the skull belonged to her boyfriend and that it had been sitting in the garden for about four years.
Dr. Bruce Anderson said "this was sitting on the ground in a garden in the dirt with some algae or moss growing."
John Sides of the TSA says "it's hard to say what you might find in there but it's imperative they do that security job that the citizens expect them to do."
The County Medical Examiner says the skull is that of a man. 20 to 30 years old, of Asian or Japanese decent.
The office is keeping it for further examination.
The woman who was questioned was released and continued her trip, without the skull she had carried in the suitcase.
