AUSTIN (KXAN) - Austin Police officers and homicide detectives were on the scene at a South Austin home for several hours after a family member found a woman dead inside Thursday.
Police say Ernestine Williams, 51, suffered blunt force trauma to her head and was found dead about 3:30 p.m. in her home at 8802 Dittmar Oaks .
Neighbors said the woman's son, who is around 12 years old, found his mom.
No suspect has been identified and no arrests have been made. Neighbors, however, have their own suspicions.
"It's a little upsetting to have something like that in your neighborhood, but I don't think anybody else is at risk," neighbor Heather Stewart said. "It sounds like a domestic thing to me. As long as that's what it is, I don't feel too worried."
Stewart says the woman also has a teenage daughter.
