HENNING, TN (WMC-TV) - People who live in Henning say all is quiet - too quiet - after two postal employees were killed there late last year. 

So is there anything new with the investigation?  And are police any closer to making an arrest? 

"Since the situation happened, it's been quiet," said resident Shannon Crawford.

Crawford and other residents want answers about who's responsible for killing two post office employees in the fall of last year.

Paula Robinson and Judy Spray were found shot to death inside the post office. Investigators believe they were killed shortly after opening up for business October 18th.

"Nobody has said anything," Crawford said. Police haven't said anything, so everybody in the town is just curious."

Crawford, who has three children living in Henning, said he's lived in fear since the incident happened.

"I worry about something like that happening again because if they don't solve the crime," he said. "People can just come down and do whatever they want and get away with it."

Reached for comments, postal inspectors said they are investigating and following any lead in this case, but could not discuss specifics about who is being questioned.

Paula Robinson's family members are still scared, and declined an interview out of fear of some sort of retaliation. 

"I want them to solve it because I wanna know who done it, know how you can go there and do something like that," Crawford said.

Authorities say there have been hundreds of leads in the case, but could not say whether or not they were close to an arrest.

There's still a $50,000 reward for any information that could lead to an arrest in this case. 

Anyone with information should call the TBI at 1-800-TBI-FIND.
