By The Associated Press

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) ' Homicide detectives investigating a slaying at Churchill Downs just hours after the Kentucky Derby say they have no suspects but stressed the death had nothing to do with the iconic horse race.

Louisville Police Lt. Barry Wilkerson said Monday investigators are asking witnesses to come forward with information in the slaying of 48-year-old Adan Fabian Perez. Perez's body was found Sunday morning in a barn on the track's backside.

Wilkerson says there were several altercations in that area of Churchill Downs on Saturday night, and police are trying to determine if Perez's death is connected. He says he's hoping witnesses come forward who might have information on what happened to Perez. His body was found in the back portion of Barn No. 8, just a few barns away from where Derby winner I'll Have Another was stabled.
