BASTROP COUNTY, Texas (KXAN) - The Bastrop County Sheriff's Office is releasing more details in what appears to be a murder-suicide.
According to authorities, on August 28, 35-year-old Barbara Devers and her dog, were found dead inside her home in the 170 block of Kellar Road in Smithville.
The Travis County Medical Examiner's Office determined Devers died from blunt force trauma but the actual date of her death is still trying to be determined.
Detectives believe Abinadab Rubalcava, 44, was involved in Devers murder, but his body was actually found in a storage unit in the 9700 block of Manchaca Road in Austin one day before Devers' body was found.
Rubalcava's death is being investigated by the Austin Police Department as a possible suicide.
Devers and Rubalcava lived together at the home on Kellar Road; however, it is unclear as to what the relationship was between them.
The Bastrop County Sheriff's Office and the Austin Police Department are both investigating the deaths.
