AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Authorities are investigating the deaths of a man and a woman whose bodies were found in a ditch in Central Texas.

The Travis County Sheriff’s Office says the bodies were found Sunday in southeastern Austin. The Austin American-Statesman reports (http://atxne.ws/1MGn4bZ ) that people walking to a nearby flea market called police after discovering the bodies.
