An airline worker made the gruesome discovery of up to 60 human heads during a routine security check.
Officials are now conducting an investigation to determine if the heads are part of a black market trade in body parts. "We've come to the conclusion that there is a black market out there for human body parts for research or for whatever reason," coroner Garland Camper stated.

Looks like they're neck and neck. I suspect they'll come up short though (about an entire body short).

I read in another article that the heads were neither refrigerated nor placed on ice; they were "packed in regular plastic containers, and wrapped with water-absorbent material and duct tape." [source: Ghoulish Cargo of 60 Severed Heads Found at Airport] Because of this storage method, I doubt the heads and other organs within are preserved well enough to be transplanted into another human being. Although this doesn't rule out the possibility that the heads are being sold in the underground market. In any case, the investigators are certainly putting their heads together to figure this one out... [More]

It actually makes perfect sense. Medtronic, the company to which the heads were being shipped, is the company that supplied my wife's brain implants for MS related tremor and spasticity. Just check these websites and you may see my point: http://www.medtronic.com/our-therapies/neurostimulators-movement-disorders/index.htm http://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT00954421 http://www.webmd.com/multiple-sclerosis/guide/deep-brain-stimulation
