(ABC 6 News) -- Neighbors tell ABC 6 News a number of law enforcement officials were seen on 8th Ave. SW in Austin on Saturday. One neighbor said the body of a young woman was found and one man was taken into custody.

ABC 6 News reached out to the Mower County Law Enforcement Center and the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension. No information has been provided, at this time.


Sunday evening, Austin High School Principal Andrea Malo sent an email to parents and students, stating the District Response Team is working with Austin High School staff and district counselors to provide support for the AHS community, as they learned an AHS student passed away over the weekend.

At this time, it is not confirmed if the email is in direct correlation to the ABC 6 News report.
