Case File: Organ Theft

Police Reports

Case Description: When Ramses II arrived in the afterlife for judgment, his viscera (internal organs) were missing. The Four Sons were accused of theft.

Case Status: Anubis did a little detective work, and discovered that the jars the Four Sons placed in Ramses II's tomb had been stolen, along with most of the pharaoh's other treasures. A search for the missing viscera was made, but they were never found. Today, Ramses lies in state in the Egyptian Museum, but nobody knows where his liver, lungs, stomach, or intestines might be.
