Austin police find 2 dead in a west Austin home Friday

Austin police are investigating two suspicious deaths on Friday afternoon in the 1600 block of Forest Trail in west Austin.

What we know:

  • Officers then entered the home and found two adults with injuries on their bodies. They were declared deceased.
  • This incident came just after a suspect linked to two unrelated suspicious deaths on Thursday was arrested.

APD said there is no threat to the public and they believe it is an isolated incident. On Friday, officials said crisis counselors were on the scene to assist family and witnesses, and that it is too early to know the motive.
