Austin police have found the cobra that could be responsible for a teenage boy's death. The snake was found near the location where the teen was found dead on July 14.
Austin Animal Services says a person called 9-1-1 early this morning to report finding a dead snake. The cobra, about five feet long, was found dead along the southbound side of the I-35 access road near the Lowe's where it's owner, 18-year-old Grant Thompson, was found dead. Paramedics say he had snake puncture wounds on his body.
The Medical Examiner will determine whether Thompson died from a snakebite or something else. An official tells FOX 7 that a preliminary autopsy for Thompson lists "pending further studies" as cause of death. Another report is expected later.
Thompson's funeral is Monday at the First Baptist Church in Temple.
