2 deadly package bombs in Texas capital are linked

12 March 2018

Austin police are investigating a package explosion Monday morning that killed a male teenager and severely injured a woman in her 40s, according to several Austin media outlets.

The woman injured by the blast was rushed to the hospital where she is being treated for serious injuries.

On March 2, a package explosion killed Anthony Stephan House, according to the Austin Police Department.

India is world's largest arms importer
In fact, Indian arms imports have increased in the past five years, despite a continued push for indigenous production. The sale from U.S. arms majors, too, reduced by 76% between 2013 and 2017 compared to the previous five-year period.

Austin Interim Police Chief Brian Manley said based on the preliminary investigation, it is believed that one of the victims picked up a package from the front porch and brought it into the kitchen.

Police said they have reclassified that investigation as a homicide, and can not rule out that the two explosions aren't related. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives has sent staff from its Houston branch to the scene.

The U.S. Postal Service told investigators that the package did not come through their facilities, so the package was likely left by someone at the doorstep, Manley said.

Until the mid-1800s, purple clothing was hard to come by and restricted only to those who could afford the expensive fabrics. Following his invention, Perkins quickly focused on the patenting, manufacturing and commercialisation of this purple dye.

It was the second deadly explosion at an Austin home in just the last two weeks.

Authorities said drivers in the area should expect road closures and heavy traffic delays. An official briefed on the investigation told ABC News that they are looking to determine if this explosion is connected to another deadly explosion in Austin that happened on March 2.

The package detonated early Monday.
