Did you leave your vials of hamster DNA on a train in Heidelberg, Germany? Last Friday, a bomb squad was called aboard a public train to investigate an abandoned styrofoam box containing three vials of fluid. The forensics experts eventually determined (maybe there was a label?) that the vials did not contain explosives but rather hamster DNA. From the Associated Press:
Officers had hoped to crack the case by publicizing the unusual find, but despite intense media interest the owner has remained elusive so far, said Jan Doering, a federal police spokesman.
Doering said police had already disposed of the vials as the cold chain had been broken.
