DEL VALLE, Texas (KXAN) — Two decomposed bodies were found in a Del Valle field on Tuesday.

Investigators say a woman was leaving her home when she saw the two bodies in her front field in the 16200 block of Pearce Lane, near Linden Road, at around 2:30 p.m. While the bodies were not found next to the woman’s home, it is essentially her front yard. Detectives say the bodies have been there for at least a day.

The Travis County Sheriff’s Office, which has not said if the deaths are suspicious, are investigating.

Earlier this month, four people were killed in a house on Linden Road, less than a mile away from Tuesday’s incident. Authorities say while it is unusual that the two incidents happened so close together, they’re not jumping to conclusions. Likewise, they’re not ruling anything out.

Anyone with information on the incident is asked to call Capital Area Crime Stoppers at 512-472-TIPS. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
