LA GRANGE, Texas (KXAN) - The Fayette County Sheriff's Office, with the help of the Texas Rangers, are investigating a killing in La Grange.
Fayette County Sheriff Chief Deputy Randy Noviskie said a 16-year-old boy allegedly killed a woman on Truesdale Road on Monday just before 10 a.m.
After the killing, the teenager allegedly left in the victim's car but was arrested a few hours later in Smithville.
Police said the teenager ran away from a juvenile detention facility last week and had been involved in a crime spree -- stealing cars since then in Bastrop, Schulenberg and Huntsville.
Authorities have not released the name of the victim nor how she was killed. An autopsy is scheduled for Tuesday morning in Austin.
Because the suspect is a minor and is back in custody, KXAN is not releasing his name.
