Two women were flying between Greece and Armenia – double connecting in Munich and Kiev. On their first stop in Munich their luggage was searched.
The women, aged 74 and 52, were traveling with a wooden box. It turned out to contain the skeleton of the 74 year old’s dead husband.
This was… an unusual situation. So police consulted with customs officials, prosecutors, and a doctor. Needless to say they missed their connection. Although it turns out they hadn’t committed any crime, and German officials believed their story that the two travelers had the mans remains dug up in Thessaloniki, and were bringing him back to be re-buried in Armenia. The man had been dead since 2008.
