“An explosion just comes right through the window. I didn’t know what it was,” the boyfriend recalled. “I look over and I see Keila and she is laying there unresponsive. I’m just shaking her, trying to wake her up, (but) she was unresponsive.”

A suspect hasn’t been identified and authorities have ordered an autopsy to confirm a cause and manner of death.

This is an ongoing investigation. Anyone with information about Sunday’s incident should call the Temple Police Department at 254-298-5500.
