The Bastrop County Sheriff’s Office said they were called to the scene of the crash around 4:10 a.m. Once there, they found 32-year-old Jessica Brown of Cedar Creek dead inside the car. Police say Brown’s injuries were not consistent with a crash.

It’s the lack of information surrounding the death that has neighbors concerned.

“The dogs went to the back and my husband said ‘I was dreaming’ and I said ‘no I wasn’t dreaming,’” Betty Collazo, a neighbor who says she heard all the ruckus Thursday morning, including what she says were gunshots. “It sounded like an automatic weapon the way it sounded it shot too fast, it wasn’t just one shot.”

Investigators aren’t saying much about the case, only that they’re treating the area as a crime scene.

The Travis County Medical Examiner will determine the cause and manner of her death.
