Skull Found in Luggage

A scary find at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport; a routine search turned up a human skull with teeth, hair and skin found in one passenger's luggage. Thirty-year-old Myrlene Severe told authorities she got the package which contained the human head from a male in Haiti to be used as a part of her voodoo beliefs.

Severe is a permanent U.S. resident.

The criminal complaint filed Friday charges her with smuggling a human head into the U.S. without proper documentation, failure to declare the head, and transporting hazardous material in air commerce.

Severe is being held in jail on a $100,000 bond.

She is due back in federal court March 2.
