Seventeen-year-old Draylen Mason was named as the second victim of the bombings.

Manley said neither the US Postal Service nor private carriers such as UPS or FedEx have any record of delivering the package to the home where Monday's explosion occurred.

The three bombings took place 11 days apart - March 2 and then two this Monday - but police have said that they believe they're related.

A group of residents in Austin are taking safety into their own hands after a series of package bomb explosions killed two people and injured two others.

Police believe the same person or people are behind the package attacks.

In all three bombings, residents found the cardboard packages outside their houses.

Police gave little details on the exact descriptions of the devices but said they were "box-type deliveries" of an average size.

By early Tuesday, 150 reports had been made about suspicious packages.

After the third blast critically injured a 75-year-old woman around noon on Monday, a neighbor turned over surveillance video to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Mason was described as a talented student and bass player accepted into the selective Butler School of Music at the University of Texas at Austin, KXAN reported. She was named by family as Esperanza Herrera. House was the stepson of Freddie Dixon, a former pastor at a historic black church in Austin, while Dixon is friends with Mason's grandfather, according to the Post.

Manley said: 'We're not saying that we believe terrorism or hate is in play, but we absolutely have to consider that because we don't want to limit what we are investigating, what we are considering and how we are approaching this case'.

"We can not ignore that". "Is that the kind of Austin we want?" The packages were left in the overnight hours. He also said they may possibly have been left at the wrong addresses.

Monday's explosion happened at a home about 12 miles from the first package bomb explosion that killed 39-year-old Anthony Stephan House on March 2.

"I went outside and it's just there, the package on the floor".

The first of Monday's blasts occurred early in the morning when a package was carried into the kitchen and exploded upon being opened, killing a 17-year-old boy and wounding a 40-year-old woman, both of them black.

Just before noon on the same day, police responded to a different residence in Austin.

It is not yet clear if there was any tie to the third family who received a bomb, which left a 75-year-old Hispanic woman in critical condition. "They rushed out and tried to help the lady", Mendoza said.
