Texas Couple Injured By Package Bomb Stable; Daughter Critical

BROWNSVILLE (January 14, 2013)--The three victims of a package bomb that blew up at a home in Brownsville were still in the hospital Monday as investigators tried to determine who left the explosives.

Brownsville police spokesman J.J. Trevino said Monday that 5-year-old Andrea Juarez was in critical but stable condition Monday in a hospital in Galveston.

Her parents, Jesus Juarez, 26, and Iviz Machado, 30, were in stable condition in a San Antonio hospital.

The family found a package outside their Brownsville home on Friday morning.

When they opened it, one of four explosive devices detonated, leaving all three victims burned.

Trevino said police have leads but no suspects.

Other people were in the home at the time of the explosion, but have not been fully cooperative.

The FBI and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives are also investigating.
