Sleepy Hollow Meets Texas

Thanks to Jeff Meyerson for the link.

Embalmed heads found in I-30 truck | Dallas Morning News | News for Dallas, Texas | News: Local News: "On the face of it, the truck full of human heads could have been a Halloween prank or the makings of a scary movie.

'This is in the top five of the strangest things – maybe the strangest – that I've ever encountered,' Hunt County Justice of the Peace Aaron Williams said Monday.

Judge Williams was called to the scene when a regular traffic stop Sunday morning by Royse City police turned into a grisly discovery of severed heads in the back of a tractor-trailer.

Police said the truck driver was pulled over for speeding about 2:30 a.m. on Interstate 30 at the Hunt County line. Because he was acting suspiciously, officers looked in the back and saw about two dozen embalmed human heads staring back at them from plastic bags and containers."
