Police believe two explosions at churches in Las Cruces, New Mexico, are no coincidence.
The incidents happened Sunday and are being investigated separately, but a spokesperson for the local police department told The Washington Post, "It's unlikely for us to have two incidents like this on the same day 20 minutes apart and have them not be connected."
The first explosion went off at a Baptist church at about 8 a.m. An explosive device was found in a mailbox near an entrance to the church.
