Parker, a resident of Austin, was taken by an unnamed person to AMC early Thursday morning. Parker was alive when he arrived at the hospital.

Austin Police Department was called to AMC at around 12:05 a.m. Sept. 2 in response to the death.

Krueger would not say Friday whether or not Parker lived at the home under investigation.

“I have no further comment at this time,” Krueger said Friday morning.

The home has been taped off since early Thursday morning, when the investigation began. No one is currently in the home, aside from two pit bulls in the basement, Krueger said.

The BCA will be at the home today to process the scene.

Krueger said the investigation is expected to be completed at some point next week.
