By John Bacon and Christal Hayes, USA TODAY

Four mysterious explosions in Austin this month have killed two people and wounded four more. Police are still trying to determine if all of them are connected.

Here is what we know:

When did the bombings begin?

The first package exploded March 2, killing Anthony Stephan House, 39, when he picked up a package on the front porch of his northeast Austin home. The second bomb went off March 12 inside a home in east Austin. Draylen Mason, 17, was killed and his mother was hospitalized. The third blast came a short time later in a neighborhood south of downtown. A 75-year-old Hispanic woman picked up a package on her front porch when it exploded, seriously injuring her.
