AUSTIN (KXAN) — Austin police are investigating the death of a man in the 7100 block of Las Ventanas Drive in Northwest Austin Thursday afternoon.
Police say they were originally called to the location around 10:30 a.m. but it is not clear where the call originated from or where the body was discovered. Authorities are investigating the man’s death as suspicious as this time.
“A lot of us leave our garage doors open, we don’t lock our doors,” said a neighbor in the area, Laraine Lasdon. “And you just feel safe. We’re on a ridge, there’s no other streets around us. So we’re really nervous, a lot of us walk at night.”
Lasdon says the incident is a wake-up call for neighbors to be more alert and watch out for each other.
