AUSTIN — Police are investigating the cause of death of an 18-year-old female found outside an Austin residence Saturday morning.

According to Austin Police Chief David McKichan, the woman was found by a family member at about 8:46 a.m. Saturday in the 800 block of Eighth Avenue Southwest. When police arrived on the scene, a male subject was located on the roof of the residence. He initially fled police, who arrested him on a probation violation.

Austin Police Department is working with the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension to investigate the woman’s death. They are currently awaiting results from a medical examination.

Because the investigation is still ongoing, McKichan would not release any further information and would not give the identities of the deceased or the arrested male subject.
