I work approximately five miles from the Henning, TN Post Office and one of the victims is my neighbor. This community is devastated by this tragedy and we're praying whoever did this is caught soon.

From February 2011:
Thursday, investigators were looking into the possibility that a gun used by an 18-year-old carjacking suspect, Chastain Montgomery, was also used in the post office murders.
Montgomery was fatally shot after a police chase through two counties. According to the Tipton County Sherrif's Office, Montgomery was killed after he got out of a stolen pickup armed with two handguns...
The teenager's father, also named Chastain Montgomery, is being held on charges related to the Monday shootout... While in custody, sources say, the elder Montgomery confessed to the October post office murders.
Chastain Montgomery, Sr., 50, of Lavergne, TN, was sentenced to consecutive life sentences in federal prison for the murders of United States Postal Service employees Paula Robinson and Judy Spray...
On May 22, 2014, Montgomery pled guilty to the seven count superseding indictment and avoided facing the death penalty for his crimes.
