BROWNSVILLE - Investigators said they have developed new leads in the bomb explosion that injured a family of three in north Brownsville.
The bomb exploded on Jan. 11. Laboratory tests are being performed on parts of the bomb that were not destroyed in the blast.
"We were able to preserve some of that. Just like any other case, it's something that could be crucial to putting this case together. You hope for anything that will identify the source, the individual or anything else," Brownsville Police Chief Orlando Rodriguez said.
A witness said one of the victims said the bomb was delivered in a FedEx package. FedEx officials, however, said they never delivered any packages to the home.
"Was it a FedEx truck or another company or was it a cloned vehicle? When we receive information, every tip or any lead has to be looked into," Rodriguez said.
Rodriguez said the victims are crucial to the investigation.
"Once the victims are able to recover to the point they can give some really good information. We are going to continue to work with them and hopefully advance this investigation," Rodriguez said.
Anyone with information on the case should call Brownsville Crime Stoppers at 956-968-8477.
