Yikes! Could you imagine working in Customs at one of the busiest airports in the world when you discover a shipment of human heads?! The strangest part about all of this is that no foul play is expected. Authorities believe that the heads are being used for medical research. Well why not just use a brain? They extract brains from the deceased all the time for research. What exactly do you need from someones entire head, 18 of them at that? One or two wasn’t enough huh? I’m out…this is too weird. Read the story below from the Associated Press.

(CHICAGO) — Authorities at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport have held up a shipment of 18 human heads sent from Rome and bound for a facility in the U.S. where they would be used in anatomical research.A spokeswoman for the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office, Mary Paleologos (PEHL’-ee-oh-loh-gohs), says the heads were properly preserved, wrapped and tagged as human specimens and there is no suggestion of foul play.

It was not immediately clear why customs officials had held up the shipment.The containers were being stored at the Cook County morgue until authorities decide what to do with the shipment.Paleologos says the specimens were frozen in sealed containers and were sent from a legitimate facility in Rome about a week before Christmas.She didn’t have information on the U.S. facility.
