How to Become a Bounty Hunter



Lawsuit: TSA Responsible for Spilled Urn That Contained Remains of Man’s Mother

A Cleveland man was on his way to Puerto Rico to spread his mother’s cremated remains in the Caribbean Sea.

But when Shannon Thomas opened his bag, he discovered that his mom’s ashes had spilled all over the suitcase with a TSA inspection notice, the Cleveland Scene reports.

In a lawsuit against the TSA, Thomas said his bag was packed with a “very heavy and steady” urn that was tightly screwed.

He argues the TSA “”negligently, carelessly, and recklessly replaced the lid of the urn, placed a bag inspection notice in Plaintiff’s suitcase and sent the bag on its way. This action caused the urn to open and spilled the remains of Plaintiff’s mother on the inside of Plaintiff’s suitcase and on Plaintiff’s personal effects.”

Thomas said he can’t understand why the agency hasn’t even issued an apology.

“No person speaking on behalf of the United States or TSA has ever issued an apology, explanation, or notification to [Thomas] aside from the bag search notice.”
