60 human heads discovered at Arkansas airport

Employees at Southwest Airlines discovered the clumsily duct-taped containers of heads last week in Little Rock. After they reported their grim discovery to police, the heads were turned over to the local coroner.
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.”
Further investigation revealed that the heads were being shipped to Medtronic Inc in Fort Worth, Texas, where they would be used by neurosurgeons to study ear, nose and throat procedures.
A spokesman for the medical company said they had ordered four heads and 40 head portions with an ear attached.
He said: “In this particular instance they were going to be used for educational training, which is routinely and commonly done.”
He 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.”
