Legal notices lost in the mail in Indiana

Hancock County officials and the United States Postal Service are trying to figure out how hundreds of mailed legal notices went missing.

Earlier in March, the county court mailed out 75 notices for jury duty for a murder trial. The probation department also mailed out 170 notices to individuals to report for drug and alcohol screenings.

In both cases, not a single individual reported to court or the probation department — because they never received the notices in the mail.

    Turns out it was just a silly misunderstanding. They apparently used Harvey Milk stamps to mail the notices, and a Fundamentalist Christian mail handler quite understandably refused to handle the letters under Indiana law. And then he, as allowed under the law, stoned the letters to death, and then burned them.

    Nothing to see here folks- go on home!
