The body of a 61-year-old Nancy Rogers of Fremont was found amidst trash at Waste Management's Davis Street Transfer Center at 2615 Davis Street in San Leandro. A postal clerk who sorted mail for carriers, Rogers was reported missing a few hours after her 1 a.m. shift started on Monday, June 14 at the Hayward post office located at 24438 Santa Clara Street.
Hayward Police Department received a report of the missing employee at approximately 4:45 a.m. While interviewing employees and searching the premises, officers determined that the trash dumpster had recently been emptied. Officers contacted Waste Management of Alameda County and determined that a Waste Management trash collector had picked up the contents of the dumpster some time before the employee was reported missing.
When the employee could not be located on the premises or at the employee's residence, officers went to Waste Management's Davis Street Transfer Center in San Leandro. Officers determined where the trash from the post office had been unloaded. A body matching the description of the missing post office employee was found amidst the trash.
