Colorado Woman Arrested for Selling Preborn Child Remains Over Mail

Emily Suzanne Cain was arrested this month for attempting to mail the remains of several children in glass jars via the US Postal Service to a buyer in the United Kingdom. Customs agents X-Rayed the package, which was labeled “school teaching aids and T-shirts” after noticing that a required signature was missing.

Upon accessing Cain's Facebook message history, officials found messages saying she purchased the specimens from a faculty member from the Department of Medical Education at Creighton University in Omaha, Nebraska.
