“$25,000 Reward, No Description of Suspects”;

“Almost 10 Days After the Henning, TN Post Office Double Murder: Faceless, Raceless Killers Still at Large.”

Remember the Henning, Tennessee Post office killings last October? Nearly a month ago, a suspect was arrested and charged. Here is an account of Chastain Montgomery Sr.’s appearance on March 1 before a federal court in Memphis.

During a brief hearing, Montgomery told the judge he plans to hire his own attorney, but doesn’t know who or when. Montgomery faces two counts of killing a government employee, and other charges in the October 18 shootings inside the Henning, Tennessee post office.

An indictment says Montgomery fatally shot Judy Spray and Paula Robinson while robbing the post office with his son. The son, Chastain Montgomery Jr., was killed in a shootout with police on February 14. The elder Montgomery was jailed on charges related to the shootout, before he was indicted last week in the post office shootings.

Montgomery is a former prison guard at the West Tennessee State Prison in Henning. This prison is where Knoxville Horror ringleader, Lemaricus Davidson, served a token sentence for a previous carjacking, and was a member of the racist gang, the Black Gangster Disciples, and where two other Knoxville Horror perpetrators, Letalvis Cobbins and George “fuck-that-white-girl” Thomas, are presently incarcerated.
