“This is a tragic loss, not just to those close to them, but to the entire postal family,” said PMG Jack Potter. “Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families and friends of our two colleagues.”

An active investigation is underway with more than 60 local and national law enforcement officers from across the country committed to finding those responsible for the murders.
“Postal Inspectors’ duties include protecting postal employees and investigating violent crimes that may occur at postal facilities,” said Chief Postal Inspector Guy Cottrell. “Homicides in the Postal Service are rare, but when they do occur, make no mistake, we will aggressively investigate to find those responsible.”
The U.S. Postal Inspection Service is offering a reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for the crime. Employees may call the Inspection Service at 877-876-2455 and all information will be kept strictly confidential.
Posters with contact and reward information are being distributed to postal facilities nationwide.
