So here's the latest on our skull story - it was evidently intended for use in voodoo rituals:
“It still had teeth, hair and bits of skin and lots of dirt,” Gonzalez[, a spokeswoman for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement in Miami,] said.
[Myrlene] Severe [, 30, a Haitian-born permanent U.S. resident] told authorities she had obtained the package in Haiti for “use as a part of her voodoo beliefs,” Immigration and Customs Enforcement Special Agent Erick Hernandez wrote in an affidavit in support of a criminal complaint.
So remember, boys and ghouls! If you're going to travel internationally with your ritual objects, make sure that you declare them...
