This morning around 1:30 Austin Police responded to a suspicious death at the 5600 block of Manor Road.

When police arrived to at the house located between Rogge and Conventry lanes, they found a 50-60 year old woman with injuries. Paramedics gave medical assistance, but pronounced her dead at the scene.

"Also at the time of the officer's arrival, they located a male fleeing the scene," says Corporal Chad Martinka with the Austin Police Department. "The male subject is a person of interest."

Police say he is in custody and currently being questioned by investigators. The relationship between the victim and suspect is unknown.

"There's multiple residences and buildings on the property and he was located in an adjacent residence," says Corporal Martinka. 

Police say this does appear to be an isolated incident and that the public is not in immediate danger. For now it is being ruled as a suspicious death and is still under investigation.

Manor Road was closed down for many hours. One lane was opened up just in time for rush hour.
