Teen killed, woman hurt when package explodes at Texas home

The pair of explosions that left two people dead in Austin, Texas, over the last 10 days share similarities and authorities suspect they are connected, police said.

A 17-year-old was killed in an explosion Monday inside an East Austin residence after the home's residents brought a package into their home, interim Austin Police Chief Brian Manley said. That explosion was first being investigated as a suspicious death, but has since been reclassified as a homicide investigation, police said.

The woman, described only as in her 40s, was taken to Dell Seton Medical Center with serious and potentially life-threatening injuries.

Sushma slams new BJP member Naresh Agrawal's comments on Jaya Bachchan
Agarwal, who belongs to the trading community, also referred to the traditional support of the community to the BJP . Previous year in January, the senior leader was expelled by Samajwadi Party supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav.

"We are looking at these incidents as being related", he said, adding that federal investigators have joined the case. Manley said hate crime cannot be ruled out because both homes that were recipients of the packages belonged to African-Americans.

Both packages were not delivered via any mail services and both homes are those of African Americans.

The resident opened the package inside the kitchen where it exploded, killing the teenager and injuring the woman.

Deadly package bombings in Austin likely related, police chief says
Police said they have reclassified that investigation as a homicide, and can not rule out that the two explosions aren't related. Austin Fire, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, and the FBI are assisting with the investigation.

According to police, one of the two residents found a package early Monday that had been placed overnight on their front doorstep.

Police warned the public about handling packages they are not expecting.

Since then, authorities have not released any information on the device that caused the explosion, nor have they named anyone who may have been involved.

Investigators are trying to determine whether the explosion is linked to a similar blast that killed a 39-year-old man on March 2.
