Po­lice hand out fly­ers in postal worker slay­ing

The Washington Times Daily - - Metro -

Prince Ge­orge’s County po­lice on Mon­day were hand­ing out fly­ers with the smil­ing face of a U.S. Postal Ser­vice worker who was fa­tally shot while de­liv­er­ing mail, but they’re say­ing lit­tle about the cir­cum­stances of his death.

Po­lice haven’t re­leased any in­for­ma­tion about sus­pects or a pos­si­ble mo­tive in the slay­ing of Tyson Bar­nette, 26, of Up­per Marl­boro. He was found shortly af­ter 7 p.m. Satur­day in a res­i­den­tial neigh­bor­hood.

The Postal Ser­vice said Mr. Bar­nette had worked for the agency for six years and that slay­ings of ac­tive-duty postal work­ers are rare. The Postal Ser­vice is of­fer­ing a $100,000 re­ward for in­for­ma­tion that leads to an ar­rest and in­dict­ment, along with the $25,000 be­ing of­fered by Crime Solvers.
