The Thigh Bone's Connected to the Knee Bone

Bali Grave Robbers: Another Shipment of a Human Skeleton Prevented by Officials at Bali's Airport.

(1/16/2010) In little over a week after Bali authorities thwarted an attempt to ship two human skeletons to Hawaii [See: Dem Bones, Dem Bones, Dem Dry Bones], postal and customs officials at Ngurah Rai International Airport have detected and stopped another shipment of human bones.

Bagus Endro Wibowo, the head of Enforcement Section of the Ngurah Rau Airport confirmed the seizure of bones.

At what appears as an attempt to conceal the actual sender and recipient, the sender listed on postal documents was "Rock Hodson" at Jalan Veteran 19 in Denpasar with the recipient listed as "Robbo Hudson" care of Alison Palmer in Herts, United Kingdom. The bones were contained in an Express Mail Service (EMS) packet.

Quoted by Radar Bali, Endro said: "The Bones were in a wooden box and had been altered in their form and decorated with horn and statuary. The sender declared that the box contained only handicrafts made from fiberglass."

Customs officers are now coordinating with the Bali Police Headquarter to further identify the origin and age of the bones.
