2nd Package Explosion This Month Kills Teen in Austin

Exploding packages have killed two people this month in Austin | Fort Worth Star-Telegram

"We are looking at these incidents as being related based on similarities that we have seen in the initial evidence", interim Police Chief Brian Manley said at a news conference Monday, hours after the explosion in East Austin, which left one teenager dead and another woman with serious injuries. Authorities said the woman is in her 40s, but police have released no other details about the pair or the explosion.

He says that package was brought into the kitchen where it detonated, killing a 17-year-old boy and injuring the woman. Manley said they do know that the two victims in both cases were African Americans and they can not rule out that the incidents were hate crimes. That case was originally being investigated as a suspicious death but has now been reclassified as a homicide investigation. Police said the package in the first home explosion on March 2 was not connected to a specific carrier or vendor, and are reviewing other carriers besides the U.S. Postal Service for Monday's package.

Officials are now warning the community to be aware of suspicious packages found. Police say to not handle any suspicious package found on a front porch, but to instead call 911 so they can inspect it.
