Elderly couple found dead in Central Austin home

elderly couple found dead

AUSTIN (KXAN) — Homicide detectives are investigating the suspicious death of a couple in their 80s. Officers responded to the 1700 block of Brentwood Street near Arroyo Seco about 11 a.m. after a caretaker found the door open and the elderly couple dead.

The scene is nearly across the street from Brentwood Elemetary School, but officials with the Austin Independent School District tell us the school was not impacted by APD’s investigation. Police say there is a public safety issue concern, since they are still trying to determine how the man and woman died. They also said it’s still too early to tell if there were signs of forced entry.
