Austin police are investigating the murder of Lawrence L. Brown in east Austin early Wednesday morning at the intersection of Chicon and E. 13th St. where a large gathering of people resulted in the beating death of the young man who goes by the nickname “Bud”. Anson Wright is the cousin of the deceased and bows down at the site of his death where a makeshift memorial was setup this afternoon. Large numbers of folks gathered throughout the day to pay tribute and talk about what happened. “He was my cousin. I wasn’t there last night. I just got the call this morning.” said Wright, who was visibly upset.
