United States Customs and Border Protection seize human skulls at Chicago O'Hare International Airport

On March 29, a shipment arriving from the Netherlands that was heading to Iowa was inspected after x-rays showed anomalies. U.S. Customs and Border Protection inspected the parcel and found two skulls, and this was the first one of three shipments from the same sender. Each package had two skulls a piece for a total of six. The skulls were referred to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for further disposition.

United States Customs and Border Protection agents at O’Hare International Airport's International Mail Facility in Chicago discovered six human skulls bound for Iowa last month, according to a news release.

A package that arrived from the Netherlands showed anomalies that warranted further inspection when X-rayed March 29, the release said. In the parcel, which was the first of three packages from the same sender, Customs agents found two human skulls. The other two packages also contained two human skulls each. 

US Customs in Chicago intercepted six human skulls being shipped to Iowa from the Netherlands last month.
The skulls were turned over to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for "further disposition," according to the release. It is unknown why these skulls were being shipped to Iowa. 

In the last six months, customs agents at O'Hare's International Mail Facility have intercepted nearly 1,700 shipments that contained prohibited items like the skulls, live snails, meat and plant materials, the news release said.

Items like those introduce disease and harm the environment, LaFonda D. Sutton-Burke, Director of Field Operations-Chicago Field Office, said in the news release. 

"Our nation's food supply is constantly at risk from pests and disease not known to occur in the U.S.," said Sutton-Burke. "These significant interceptions by our CBPAS at the IMF at O’Hare exemplify CBP's continued commitment to safeguarding American agriculture."


  1. Looks like my old flight instructor.....

  2. Strange that they caught these skulls, but ignore the thousands crossing the border every day, under their own power. You know, the ones that are alive.
    These would probably not have been a problem, ever.

    1. You mean those illegals who are excluded from all the Covid mandates the rest of we born and legal American immigrant citizens are held to the fire for? You mean those hundreds of thousands of illegals being flown and bused around the nation for states and municipalities (and residents) to have to deal with and pay for since the Infirm In Chief took office last year?

  3. Yup, those are the ones. But the border patrol managed to catch these skulls!
    I used to be a 135 pilot..the "thorough" treatment we got when re-entering always bothered me..throwing out all the catering, answering questions, occasionally looking through luggage....the formality of it all is a BS dog and pony show, and an utter waste of money, given the free entry elsewhere. Even free gifts!

  4. The scanning operation at the airport's international mail facility that found these items is just a freight processing function.

    X-ray everything and look closely at packages with odd images. No politics are interfering with that function.
