Package bound for Austin blows up at FedEx building near San Antonio

AUSTIN, Texas — Investigators pursuing a suspected serial bomber in the Texas capital shifted their attention Tuesday to a FedEx shipping center near San Antonio where a package exploded on a conveyor belt in the middle of the night and caused minor injuries to a worker. Although the latest blast did not inflict serious harm, it added to the widening fear of more strikes like those that have already killed two people and badly wounded four others.

FBI officials said Tuesday night that the suspicious package at the shipping facility "contained an explosive device" and federal officials say the latest incident is connected to the four previous package explosions this month:

ATF, @FBI & @Austin_Police confirm that two packages located at two separate FedEx facilities in Austin/San Antonio are...

Arizona man accused in 1987 death of a San Antonio woman

Prescott police announced Tuesday that 65-year-old Larry Moore is in custody and awaiting extradition to Texas’ Bexar County.

A county grand jury indicted Moore with capital murder last Friday.

He’s facing charges of sexual assault and strangulation while committing or attempting to commit kidnapping.

County prosecutors say 25-year-old Dianna Lowery was found dead in January 1987 and an autopsy revealed it was a homicide.

The case went cold for decades until a second investigation led authorities to Moore, who lived in the duplex next door to Lowery in 1987 and allegedly had a spare key that allowed him access to her apartment.

While Google Fiber just had its a comeback year—powered by shallow-trenching—the high-speed internet provider has discovered what a difficult game the telecom market can be.

Here is a full timeline of Google Fiber’s growth, beginning with city applications to become the first Fiber city in March 2010 to officially launching in San Antonio, TX in November 2017.

Texas man dies retrieving packages left on car roof

WACO, Texas (AP) — Police say a Texas man was struck and killed by a car as he retrieved a package that he had accidentally left on the roof of his car after a late-night shopping trip.

Waco police say the 59-year-old man died at the scene of the accident about 2:30 a.m. Sunday.

Police say the man may have left items on the roof while packing up in the parking lot.

A package flew from the roof into the traffic lane as he pulled out of the parking lot. Police say he stopped his car and walked into the roadway to retrieve the item when a passing car struck him.

Police have not released his name pending notification of his family.
