A Moroccan woman pulled off maybe one of the gutsiest moves in airport history when she tried smuggling her husband’s intestines through airport security in Graz, Austria.

According to the Associated Press, the woman was questioned by police after an Austrian customs official discovered tightly sealed plastic containers full of intestines and formaldehyde in the woman’s suitcase.

Though Moroccan authorities determined an abdominal obstruction was responsible for her husband’s death, the unidentified woman told police that she was bringing his intestines into Austria to have them tested for poison.

The intestinal tissue is being subjected to a pathological analysis.
