It takes nerve to file this WC claim
The mother of a man who killed three coworkers before shooting himself in a
workplace rampage near Jefferson City, Mo., in July has filed a workers' compensation
claim, saying the employer should compensate her for her son's death because
it occurred at work.
The employer, Modine Manufacturing Co., said it turned down the request by
Nina Tichelkamp-Russell, the mother of the 25-year-old gunman Jonathon Russell.
Modine Manufacturing quickly approved claims filed by the families of Russell's
victims, but it has no intention of compensating the gunman's family, company
spokesman Mick Lucareli said.
"This is probably an odd situation. It certainly caught us by surprise,"
