AUSTIN (KXAN) — The Austin Police Department is investigating a south Austin double homicide as a “domestic violence situation,” APD said during a news conference outside the home where the incident occurred.

At approximately 12:12 p.m., officers responded to the 1200 block of Kenyon Drive in reference to a welfare check, an APD public information officer said at the scene.

When officers arrived at the home, they found an unidentified man and woman, both in their 40s, with “trauma to the body,” police said. Both people were pronounced dead on the scene.

Furthermore, police confirmed it was a “domestic violence incident.”

Police said the mother of the woman victim lives out of the state and tried reaching out to her daughter, who she had not heard from in two days.

Furthermore, APD said it is not looking for a suspect and do not believe there to be an outstanding suspect in the case. Police would not confirm whether the incident was a murder/suicide.

Police said the two victims lived together, but their relationship was not immediately clear.

APD said the incident is being investigated at the 26th homicide of 2023.

Anyone with any information on the case can call the APD Homicide Unit phone line at (512) 477-3588.

The case remained under investigation Thursday.
