Federal investigators are at a Hayward post office to check on security measures after a woman who worked at the post office was found dead at a San Leandro landfill.

Rogers was reported missing Monday morning just before 5 a.m., from her workplace at the post office on Santa Clara St. in Hayward, Hayward police lieutenant Chris Orrey said.
