RIPLEY, TN (WMC-TV) - Grieving relatives of two postal workers shot to death at work last month in a small West Tennessee town are pleading with the public for help in finding whoever killed the women.

Family members of postal retail clerk Paula Robinson and rural letter carrier Judy Spray said Thursday they are still struggling to understand why anyone would shoot the two women.

"She was truly a beautiful person inside and out, and she was the heart of our family," said Robinson's sister, Nicole Baker.

Robinson and Spray were found dead inside the Henning post office on the morning of Oct. 18.

"Our hearts have been ripped from our bodies as we are forced to continue day after day without our mother," said Spray's son, Robert Lipker. "We are victims of a undescribable pain beyond all belief."

More than 60 investigators from around the country are working to find the killer or killers. No one has been arrested, and investigators will not discuss whether they have a suspect or motive.

"The battle is not over," Baker said. "We need closure."

A $50,000 reward is being offered for information that leads to a conviction.
