Family of Henning murder victim speaks out about indictments

By Justin Hanson - bio | email

HENNING, TN (WMC-TV) - The family of one of the Henning post office murder victims is speaking out about their reaction to last week's federal indictments in the case. 

"I felt relief and overjoyed...my spirit cried out to God," said Paula Robinson's sister, Tina Pool.

Pool says life simply hasn't been the same since her sister's death.   

"When I came home from Nashville, she'd be waiting at the doorway to hug me and say, 'I love you, you're home, I'm glad to see you.' Now she's not here anymore," she said.

Robinson's family members finally have some closure after her death.  Last week, Chastain Montgomery, Sr. was indicted on charges related to the murders of Robinson and her co-worker, Judy Spray.

The two were found shot to death inside the Henning post office shortly after opening for business last October.

"What were they looking for at the post office that early in the morning, it doesn't make sense. Things aren't adding up," said Robinson's sister, Nicole Baker.

Tina Pool works just feet away from where Chastain Montgomery, Jr. carjacked a Nashville man. He then drove the stolen truck to West Tennessee before being shot to death by police after firing shots at them during a high speed chase.

"Right there where Paula's little sister works, some of her killers was right there in the area. OnStar tracked the vehicle," Pool said.

As Robinson's family tries to move on from this terrible tragedy, they still have more questions than answers. 

"What goes around, comes around," Baker said. "God works in mysterious ways."
