APD investigating West Campus apartment death, now considered ‘not suspicious’


Editor’s Note: Austin police clarified Thursday morning they do not believe the death is suspicious.

AUSTIN (KXAN) — Austin Police launched an investigation after finding a man’s body inside a West Campus apartment Wednesday night. While Austin Police initially investigating this as a suspicious death, APD tells KXAN that as of Thursday morning its Homicide Unit Homicide does not consider the death suspicious at this point.

APD added that they do not anticipate any further updates on this case today.

Police described the victim as a 28-year-old white man but have not yet identified him.

Police went to the apartment after someone called 911 just after 11 p.m. asking them to check on a person at the Skyloft Apartments on West 23rd Street. That’s between Nueces and San Antonio streets.

According to police, no one is in custody.

APD did alert the University of Texas Police Department, but they say that was only because of the proximity to campus. UT Austin Police say at this time there is no known UT affiliation to this incident.

The Austin Police Department is actively investigating this incident. Call APD at 311 if you have any information about this crime.
