    Human Head Found In Luggage

    FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) - Airport baggage screeners found a human head with teeth, hair and skin in the luggage of a woman who said she intended to ward off evil spirits with it, authorities said Friday.

    Myrlene Severe, 30, a Haitian-born permanent U.S. resident, was charged Friday with smuggling a human head into the U.S. without proper documentation.

    Customs and Border Protection officials found the head Thursday, after Severe arrived at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport on a Lynx International Airlines flight from Cap Haitien, Haiti, said Barbara Gonzalez, a spokeswoman for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement in Miami.

    "It still had teeth, hair and bits of skin and lots of dirt," Gonzalez said.

    Severe told authorities she had obtained the package in Haiti for "use as a part of her voodoo beliefs," ICE Special Agent Erick Hernandez wrote in an affidavit in support of a criminal complaint.

    "Severe also stated that the purpose of the package was to ward off evil spirits," Hernandez wrote.

    Severe, who also was charged with FAILING TO DECLARE THE HEAD and transporting hazardous material in air commerce, faces a maximum of 15 years in prison if convicted of all charges, prosecutors said.

    Severe remained held Friday in lieu of a $100,000 bond. She is due back in federal court March 2. (emphasis added)

    What was she thinking, not getting that human head it's own passport?

    This reminds me of some movie I saw where the woman killed her husband and was carrying his head around with her. Was it Dolly Parten, Melanie Griffith?

    Just in case I ever need this information, what is the proper method of transporting a human head that's used to ward off evil?

    I think it's somewhere in Section Z, Paragraph 987654321.a

    Always remember...declare your head.

    I thought the custom people usually asked...."are you carrying any vegetable or animal products .....or human body parts?"

    Someone was sleeping on the job apparently.

    ... I've lost my head several times and was lucky enough to find it! I've lost it again though!! If anyone finds it this time I would like it back! And, if you find it, don't mess with it, it's the only one I have!! There's a reward!!
