Postal killer may have shot neighbour before spree

The woman who gunned down six people inside a mail sorting office in California may have killed a former neighbour a few hours before the attack, sheriff’s officials said today.

“Evidence and circumstances of both crimes show distinct correlations between the two,” said Jeff Klapakis with the Santa Barbara County sheriff’s department.

The body was discovered yesterday evening at a Santa Barbara condominium complex where former postal employee Jennifer Sanmarco once lived.

The victim died from a gunshot wound to the head on Monday, Klapakis said.

Late on Monday night, Sanmarco shot six postal employees, killing five before committing suicide.

The sixth person remains in hospital in critical condition.
