But the woman recently decided to apply for a restraining order against him and was planning to file the papers Thursday, Eberhardt said. Postal Inspector David Smith said Hilbun had left messages for Springer at work and at home, putting letters in her mailbox at home.
Springer had been so worried about her safety that she had taken a week and returned to work Thursday, Eberhardt said. Two postal inspectors had been guarding Springer over the weekend and the first part of this week for her protection, he said. Springer hid in the office when she heard Hilbun coming and was unharmed in the attack. She was in protective custody Thursday night.
Records show that Hilbun was convicted in November of driving under the influence and resisting arrest in connection with a traffic stop in Lakewood last year. His attorney in that case, Donald Rubright, described Hilbun as a manic-depressive who has been hospitalized for his mental condition. In light of the threats against Springer, Eberhardt said, he believes that postal officials should have been better prepared for the prospect of violence.

Paul Henisey said. The woman suffered multiple gunshot wounds and is in stable but critical condition at a local hospital.
She is expected to undergo surgery today, police said. His kayak was found at a Dana Point home.
List of postal killings
Scott Waltz, a landscape construction worker, returned to his Reef Bay home to find a broken window and a blue kayak in his garage. Dots of blood trailed down the sidewalk. Police believe that the suspect dumped the kayak in the garage, picking the house at random. A SWAT team waited for several hours there, ready to move, but authorities determined that Hilbun was not there.
The search continued Thursday night. The Dana Point incident occurred only hours after a postal mechanic in Dearborn, Mich.
Authorities said Larry Jasion, 45, apparently opened fire because he was upset that a female co-worker had gotten a clerical job he wanted. One man was shot to death, a man and woman were wounded and another man suffered chest pains and a hip injury after falling while running away. It was surreal.
