Police in Louisville, Kentucky opened a homicide investigation after a man’s body was found in the stable area of Churchill Downs hours after more than 165,000 people had gathered to watch the Kentucky Derby. Police insist there is no connection to the race track or the Kentucky Derby, notes the Associated Press.
Churchill Downs security called police at 4:50 a.m. after they found the body of a Hispanic man in a barn that was only around 150 yards from where this year’s derby winner (I’ll Have Another) was kept. The police refused to describe the overall condition of the body but did say there was no sign of a struggle, reports the Louisville Courier-Journal.
