" FBI Confiscated Thousands of Plundered Human Bones and Artifacts from Man's Home " (Live Science - Mindy Weisberger, 01.03.2019)
Quote:
... Over six days in 2014, FBI agents removed about 7,000 objects from the Indiana home of former military engineer, Christian missionary and "amateur archaeologist" Don Miller. For more than 70 years, Miller had traveled the world collecting objects that piqued his interest, and many were found to have been acquired illegally. That includes 500 sets of human bones that were likely looted from Native American burial sites, the FBI said.

Miller's appetite for historical and cultural objects — around 42,000 in all — was global, spanning North and South America, the Caribbean, the Indo-Pacific region, and Asia. And his enthusiasm sometimes led him to overstep legal boundaries, according to the FBI. ...

Greetings, Lutz.
