Letter Carrier casing mail

Camden, NJ, Letter Carrier Felix Bocchicchio couldn’t shake the feeling something was wrong.

While on his route recently, Bocchicchio noticed mail piling up in a customer’s box, along with flowers that remained on the home’s porch long after a florist dropped them off.

Bocchicchio’s suspicion gnawed at him all day. Finally, he alerted a neighbor with a key to the home, and together they tried to enter but the door was blocked.

The duo then looked through a window and saw the woman lying on the floor.

Bocchicchio called 911. Police and emergency personnel were able enter the house through a broken window. The customer was severely dehydrated and incoherent, but she is expected to recover.
