Second Czech parcel of human remains found


Czech postal workers have found a second parcel containing human body parts.

A rotting human arm and leg were found in a parcel at another Brno post office on Friday.

South Moravian police spokeswoman Kamila Janickova told the CTK news agency: "The parcel was posted from Prague to Uherske Hradiste (south Moravia). Because no-one has collected it there, it was returned to Brno where the staff opened it because of a strong stench."

She refused to say which parts of a human body had been found, the Czech Happenings website reports.

A post-mortem and special X-ray examination will be carried out.

The website says police are investigating whether the sender and addressee were fictitious as was the case with Friday's find.
