A South Carolina man was charged with the murder of a rural letter carrier.
Irene Pressley had worked for the U.S. Postal Service for over 20 years when she was shot multiple times in Andrews, S.C., on Sept. 23.
Trevor Raekwon Seward, 22, was seen before the shooting toting an AR-15 rifle and his fingerprints matched prints found on a parcel recovered at the crime scene.
Jessica Adams, the public information officer for the U.S. Postal Inspector, told ABC News that Pressley “was on route” when she was shot.
David M. McGinnis, inspector in charge of the Charlotte division of the U.S. Postal Inspection Service said a 70-person task force was investigating.
“Currently the U.S. Postal Inspection Service takes the security and well-being of postal service employees very seriously,” the Charlotte division of the U.S. Postal Inspector said in a statement.
Seward is being held at the Williamsburg County Detention Center and has not entered a plea.
