Amazing Scan images of the Ohio Mummy

Image-The Columbus Dispatch
"He isn’t supposed to talk about the body in the back of his SUV. 

His job is to drive. Slowly. Gently. No wrecks. 
Randy Schoedinger guides the Chevy Suburban through the streets, tense but intrigued. It’s the evening of June 5, 2012, and this is no routine run for the CEO of Schoedinger Funeral and Cremation Service. Strapped to a board in the back, anchored by three cautious museum workers, is a woman long dead, a 5-foot-2 mystery wrapped in ancient bandages.
They are taking the mummy for her CT scans.
“You get a call like that (and think), ‘What is this, a prank?’ ” Schoedinger said."
A video of the scanning of the Ohio mummy, together with narration on how the mummy came to Ohio and its display, can be found here at The Columbus Dispatch.  The images are amazing!!!!
