According to cbs report, the Mexico's National Guard were called in to the airport in the city of Queretaro after an X-ray detected strange shapes in a cardboard box.

When the Guard officers opened the box, they found four human skulls wrapped in plastic and aluminum foil.

The Guard said the shipment, regardless of how the skulls were obtained or whether the items were meant for medical study, may violate Mexican laws on the handling of corpses.
