American Tourist Tries To Ship Infant Body Parts To U.S


Police Officials in Thailand stated that an American tourist tried to ship infant body parts to the United States, but the shipment was stopped after a call from the shipping company.
CNN reported that the police in Thai received a phone call from a DHL shipping office in Pathum Thani province, on the border of Bangkok, on Saturday. According to the Police, the workers discovered the body parts inside parcel boxes as they were scanning shipments for delivery. The boxes contained an infant skull, internal organs and a few pieces of human skin, police say.

A forensics team was dispatched by the police to retrieve the boxes, which contained the body parts sealed in plastic bags and preserved with formaldehyde.
Chief of Bang Pongpang police station, Col. Adisorn Semsawa, said, “We have talked with an American who was trying to send the parcels to the USA, but we could not press any charges on him and we are
not quite sure which laws we can apply to him.”
The unidentified American tourist told the police that he found the infant body parts at a night  market and paid around $100 for them, though he can’t remember where the market is located. Police say they are looking for the seller.

Thai police say they’ve been in touch with the U. S. Embassy and that the tourist’s name has not been revealed because he hasn’t been charged.
Infant body parts are used for black magic in Thai and can actually be bought on black market.
In 2010, the smell of decay led police investigators to the Phai-nguern Chotinaram temple in central Bangkok, where they discovered more than 2,000 illegally aborted fetuses. Three people were arrested, including two morticians who were charged with hiding bodies.
