Second Mail Bomb Was Addressed to Director at Phone Company

August 17, 1995

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) _ The man who maimed his wife with a mail bomb that exploded in her office sent a second explosive device to one of her co-workers, probably to divert suspicion, authorities said.

The second bomb was intercepted by the U.S. Postal Service after sitting unnoticed in a postal bin for at least two weeks.

Stephan Michael Bullis was indicted Tuesday in connection with the two bombs and could get life in prison if convicted. Tracy Bullis lost several fingers when a package exploded July 10 in her office at Business Telecommunications Inc., a long-distance phone company.

The second bomb was sent to Hans Caspar, director of operations for BTI, said company vice president Tony Copeland. U.S. Postal Inspector Nick Kaylor said it probably was meant as a diversion.
