East Austin community tries to heal as police search for answers in bombings

AUSTIN — Armed with incense, sage, lavender and drums, dozens marched in a peace rally Friday night in East Austin as law enforcement continues to search for the person who left package bombs at three Austin homes, killing two people and seriously injuring two others earlier this month.
More than 100 people marched from the school to the home of 17-year-old Draylen Mason, who died trying to open a package left on his front porch Monday. The blast killed Mason and gravely injured his mother.
The walk, organized by Counter Balance: ATX, was part of a broader event meant to bring healing to a neighborhood reeling from fear and uncertainty.
