News of the Weird: FBI Probes Man Who Shipped Self to Dallas

This AP report takes the cake:

Charles D. McKinley had himself shipped from New York to Dallas in an airline cargo crate, startling his parents — and a deliveryman — when he broke out of the box outside their home.

"My husband asked him, `Man, what are you doing in this crate?' He said he was coming home," his mother told KDFW-TV in Dallas.

Federal officials want to know how the stowaway bypassed airport security.
Security? What security?

The dumb thing is the AP reports it cost $550 to ship the package--the cost of a first class ticket.
