AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - A teenager has died and a woman is seriously injured after a package exploded at a home in Austin, marking the second such explosion this month at a home in Texas' capital city.
  
The package detonated early Monday. Police say the teen died at the scene, while the woman was taken to a hospital with life-threatening injuries. Police say the woman is in her 40s, but they haven't released any other information.
  
Authorities are investigating whether the explosion is linked to a similar blast on March 2 that killed a 39-year-old man. Both explosions occurred in the early-morning hours.
  
Police are investigating that incident as a suspicious death. Investigators haven't released information about the device or possible suspects.
  
The FBI is helping Austin police in the investigation.
