CHICAGO, IL – It was a quite a grisly discovery at O’Hare International airport on Tuesday. Authorities found 18 human heads. But they say the heads found in a package were meant for anatomical research.

Custom agents found the package that was sent from a research facility in Rome. The package was supposed to go to a U.S. research facility. The heads were frozen in sealed containers and marked as human specimens.

The heads were being held at the Cook County morgue until officials decide what to do with them.
