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 first incident earlier in the month killed a 39-year-old man. Police are investigating the possibility of the two incidents being linked. That explosion occurred about 12 miles (19 kilometers) north of Monday's blast.

He said the U.S. Postal Service doesn't have a record of delivering the package to the East Austin home where Monday's explosion occurred, and that private carriers like UPS and FedEx also indicated that they had none, either. Police said they have reclassified that investigation as a homicide, and can not rule out that the two explosions aren't related.

It's the second exploding package death in the past 10 days in Austin.

"We are looking at these incidents as being related based on similarities that we have seen and the initial evidence that we have on hand here", Manley said. "And let us come out and take a look at those packages and ensure that they are safe", Manley said. Manley said hate crime cannot be ruled out because both homes that were recipients of the packages belonged to African-Americans. "But we're not saying that that's the cause as well".

The Federal Bureau of Investigation is responding to the scene to assist the Austin Police Department, as is APD's bomb squad and its robot.

"If you find any suspicious packages on your front porch, at your residence, call 9-1-1".

Police did not identify the teenager or the woman and have not released any details about Monday's package.

A woman in her 70s was injured in the second blast and another woman who was in the home was hospitalized with an unrelated medical problem.
