Austin bombing that killed teenager may be linked to previous attack
14 March, 2018, 00:34
Correction: A previous headline for this story on the CNN app incorrectly stated that the explosive packages were connected to the South By Southwest Interactive Festival, now taking place in Austin.
Austin resident Trey Mathis said he expected a package to be deliveredMonday but was still nervous when it showed up.
- The bombs killed a 39-year-old African-American man on March 2, killed a 17-year-old African-American male early Monday morning, and severely injured a 75-year-old Hispanic woman midday Monday.
No motive has been given for the blasts - two of which took place on Monday following one on March 2 - when parcels left in front of residences in three separate neighbourhoods exploded.
The victim of the second Monday blast was a woman in a wheelchair who had been watering her grass, said Brandon Rendon, a 27-year-old contractor who lives four houses down from her home in the mainly working-class Hispanic Montopolis area. She was reported to be in critical condition with life-threatening injuries.
The first explosion yesterday happened about 12 miles (20 kilometres) from the home where a March 2 package bombing killed 39-year-old Anthony Stephan House. "There's a certain level of skill required to move a device like this".
The explosion happened hours after a package bombing a few miles away that killed a teenager and seriously injured a woman.
On Monday, 10 days after House's murder, police received reports of two more explosions. Now, they are investigating the explosions as related, and re-classified House's death from "suspicious" to "homicide". The other two bombs killed people whose families have ties, and one of those victims' relatives said he did not know of any connections to Herrera.
The teenager died at the scene and a woman in her 40s was taken to a nearby hospital following an early morning attack in east Austin.
"The damage is significant, and there's a lot of evidence that needs to be collected", Manley said.

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott offered a $15,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the person who planted the bombs.
The blasts occurred far from the heart of South By Southwest, which happens mostly in downtown Austin.
Manley urged Austin residents to call police if they find any package on their doorstop that gives them "cause for concern". "Call 9-1-1 immediately if you receive something suspicious".
"We are not going to tolerate this in Austin, and you have seen every stop will be pulled out. the federal agencies are with us to lend us a hand and to bring this to as quick as a resolution as possible", Manley added. "It's kind of one of those things that hits you from the side, especially knowing it's one of your neighbors even though you didn't know them directly", says one neighbor.
