The Bastrop County Sheriff's Office and Austin Police are investigating a murder and suicide of two roommates. But it's unclear if the two deaths are connected.
Last Wednesday, Bastrop County Sheriff's deputies found the body of 35-year-old Barbara Devers in her Smithville home.
They say her body, as well as the body of her dog was discovered by the family of her 54-year-old roommate Abinadab Arroyo Rubalcava.
An autopsy revealed Devers' likely cause of death was blunt force trauma
Rubalcava was found dead in a storage unit in South Austin the day before, the victim of an apparent suicide.
Authorities believe Rubalcava is a person of interest in Devers' death but it's unclear what relationship the two had. Authorities are still investigating.
