Women try to smuggle dead relative onto flight
Two women in England have them all beat--they tried to smuggle a dead body on board. The unnamed women were stopped at Liverpool's John Lennon Airport on Saturday as they wheeled their "sleeping" relative up to the gate for a flight to Germany. Airport officials became suspicious and when they began to ask questions about the 91 year-old man, the duo's story quickly unraveled.
By covering the man with a blanket and putting sunglasses on him, they apparently thought they could slip by security. Perhaps they were inspired by the Australian who got a bag labeled "bomb" past security or the United flight that had a stowaway scorpion.
The two suspects, who the police have identified only as women aged 41 and 66 from Oldham in Greater Manchester, have been charged with failing to report on death and have been released on bail pending an investigation and, most likely, a trial.
