Dem Bones, Dem Bones, Dem Dry Bones

Custom Officials and Bali's Airport Thwart Attempt to Smuggle Two Human Skeletons to Hawaii.

(1/11/2010) Bali Police and Custom's Officials from Ngurah Rai Airport are trying to identify the "owner" of two human skeletons seized at Bali's airport during an effort to smuggle them out of the country.

"We are working with police to trace the addresses of two senders from different places in Bali, Kuta and Seminyak," said Bagus Endro Wibowo, an enforcement and investigative officer from the Ngurah Rai Custom's office.

The skeletons were in a packet addressed to Hawaii and were detected during a routine x-ray screening. The smugglers had tried to camouflage the shipment through the application of plaster and cattle horns. Closer examination, however, revealed that the packages contained human remains.

The listed name of the senders were John Wayne on Jalan Dhyanapura in Seminyak and the Gallery Primitive on Jalan Raya in Kuta. The addressee was Releigh Maureenat CSSI Wake Island, Malepono Street in Honolulu. Officials believe all addresses are fictional.

Police are also working with officials from Indonesia's prehistoric service to determine if the bones are of ancient or a more contemporary origin.
