QUEBEC, Canada (WJW) -- Law enforcement officials made a bizarre discovery while checking a car at the US-Canada border recently.

According to the Toronto Sun, a woman and her son were driving back to Quebec from Florida with her dead husband in the car.

They explained that the man, who is in his 80s, had been having health issues and died of a suspected heart attack while on the trip.

When asked why they didn’t pay to have the body shipped, they said they felt it would be “too pricey” with U.S. health care.

The Sun reports an autopsy still needs to be conducted.
