WEST PALM BEACH, FL – One stroke and one color at a time, Lynn Morgan paints a picture of a beautiful landscape.

"Mail was coming to us that had already been rifled," explained Postal Inspector Jeffrey Esser.

The Post Office is now trying to connect each piece of compromised mail with its owner. Some of the cards were taken out of their envelopes, so it’s not an easy task.

The Post Office is still investigating, but believes the problem happened at a Memphis sorting facility.

"Two temporary employees were identified. They’ve since been removed from the Postal Service, and they’re working with the US Attorney’s Office," Esser explained.
