Bodies found at Austin apartment complex; police investigating as homicide

Two people were found dead at an apartment complex in Austin and the Austin Police Department is investigating it as a homicide.

On Wednesday, July 3, APD says it responded to a call at around 10:15 a.m. about the incident at the complex in the 4400 block of Airport Boulevard. 

Police say the two people had injuries and were found by a person who called 9-1-1. 

"The complainant located two persons with multiple life-threatening injuries to their bodies," said officer Austin Zarling, with the Austin Police Department said. "I'm not sure if there was weapon recovered on scene. All I really know is that there's multiple blunt force trauma to the body at this time."

The victims were pronounced dead at 10:46 a.m.

Police say the case is considered an isolated incident, and there is no known threat to the public.

Identities of the victims are not being released at this time, but police did say the victims are male and female. 

Police would not confirm if it was a murder-suicide.

Both officers and neighbors say this is not the first time there has been police activity at the apartment complex. 

"It's scary, because this is an everyday thing, you know, you live here, and you see this all the time here. The crime is high here in this part of town," neighbor Thalia Castillo said.

"We do get calls to this apartment complex. I don't want to say often, but we do get calls here, but I don't know about this specific unit," Zarling said.
