Gruesome find for airport workers

Airport workers who noticed a package was not labelled properly were shocked to discover a shipment of 40 to 60 human heads.
Employees at Southwest Airlines discovered the clumsily duct-taped containers of heads in Little Rock, Arkansas.

After they reported their grim discovery to police, the heads were turned over to the local coroner, reports the Daily Telegraph.

Further investigation revealed the heads were being shipped to be used by neurosurgeons to study ear, nose and throat procedures.

Pulaski County Coroner Garland Camper said: “They were basically in plastic containers with lids that are not air sealed.??”They were duct taped with minimal information to disclose what was inside.”

The heads were on their way to medical company Medtronic Inc in Fort Worth, Texas, which had ordered them for research.

A company spokesman said it was not uncommon for heads used for research to be shipped commercially, adding: “It’s a common practice. This is a very uncommon result.”
