Woman busted for importing dried human head in luggage

Cory Doctorow:
A woman’s been arrested at the Fort Lauderdale airport for attempting to import a dessicated head from Haiti — she said she needed it to protect her from evil spirits.

“Severe stated that she had obtained the package, which contained a human head, from a male in Haiti for use as part of her voodoo beliefs,” the US Attorney’s Office said in a statement.

A spokesman for Miami’s immigration and customs agency told the AFP news agency that the head was not simply a skull.

“It had teeth, hair and skin, and quite a lot of dirt,” she said.
