Cleveland Letter Carrier Jason Stilwell

A growing pile of mail and a broken window at the home of a blind customer were troubling signs recently to Cleveland Letter Carrier Jason Stilwell.

He peered through a window and saw the man on the floor with his service dog nearby.

After Stilwell called 911, police officers found that the man had been dead for more than a week.

Authorities removed the body and arranged care that the dog urgently needed.
