  1. I retired as carrier in CT Sept. 2014. Very sad to hear of this tragedy. There must have been a lot of stress and depression involved for this to occur. Prayers for their families, friends, and fellow postal workers.

  2. I’m a Connecticut postal worker in Connecticut very sad to read about this As a fellow postal worker my prayers are with their families.

  3. Vice-President of Dead Postal Workers will follow with comment that it was a Post Office Diverse Crime Scene……crossing many crafts………PO Diversity is Perversity a sport the whole postal family can enjoy!

  4. In a sad case like this, the best thing management can do is stay the …. out of the way. They like to try to interfere with our private lives with posters and sometimes letters offering counseling and assistance in areas they know nothing about but being managers, think they’re experts on everything.
    Condolences to the families and those who worked with these people.
