🕐 1 min read

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Officials say they have found a cobra that they believe killed an 18-year-old man in Austin who was transporting the snake in his car.

The Austin Animal Protection Office says they received a call about a dead snake early Friday near where 18-year-old Grant Thompson was found with a puncture wound on his wrist.

According to Austin Animal Protection Supervisor Mark Sloat, the snake will be held as evidence until it’s determined what killed Thompson.

Thompson was found unresponsive Tuesday night in the parking lot of a home improvement store in Austin and died while being transported to a Round Rock hospital.

Animal control officers found in Thompson’s car a nonvenomous snake in a crate, six tarantulas and a bullfrog.
