AUSTIN (KXAN) — One person was found dead inside a southwest Austin home Friday afternoon, and another was taken to the hospital, according to the Austin Police Department.
Police say the APD Homicide Unit is investigating the incident, which is being treated as a suspicious death, in the 6500 block of Aden Lane. That’s near Escarpment Boulevard and Highway 45.
A 911 call was placed from the location around 1:49 p.m., APD says. Officers responded and found one person dead inside a residence and another person who was hurt.
The person who died was identified by APD on Dec. 3 as Virginia Willig, 78. The cause of her death is still pending.
