Woman Traveling with Husband’s Skeleton Stopped at Munich Airport

Authorities at Munich airport in Germany detained a 74-year-old Armenian woman after human bones were found in her luggage, German federal police said Tuesday.

Airport officials found the remains after examining the contents of a wooden box in the woman’s luggage. They then called in customs officers, a doctor and a public prosecutor for further questioning.

Munich Airport (German: Flughafen München) (IATA: MUC, ICAO: EDDM) is the international airport of Munich, the capital of Bavaria. It is the second-busiest airport in Germany in terms of passenger traffic after Frankfurt Airport, and the ninth-busiest airport in Europe.

Police interrogations revealed that the woman was attempting to fly the bones of her deceased husband from her home in Greece to be laid to rest in their native Armenia, with flight stopovers in Munich and Kyiv before reaching the destination. The woman was accompanied by her 52-year-old daughter.

Documents indicated that the woman’s husband had died in 2008 and was buried near their home in Thessaloniki.

Federal authorities determined that the transfer of human remains was lawful. The public prosecutor also found no grounds for a criminal investigation.

The mother and daughter were permitted to continue on their journey, taking the bones with them.
