FBI returns artifacts to Haiti
Updated: Feb 19, 2020
More than 450 cultural and historical artifacts found at the home of Donald Miller in Rush County, located in the state of Indiana are now back in Haiti.
US Ambassador Michele Sison was honored to have the opportunity to return to the Haitian people more than 400 cultural artifacts that were illicitly trafficked out of Haiti.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation found them at the home of Donald Miller, who amassed a collection of tens of thousands of items from around the globe.
Before he died in 2015, Donald Miller agreed to return the items he likely obtained illegally, which led to the massive operation on his property in 2014. In all, the FBI acquired 7,000 artifacts, most still stored in a warehouse outside Indianapolis.
