So, folks are getting murked and stabbed up at the Kentucky Derby now:

Foul play is suspected in the death of a man whose body was found in a barn behind Churchill Downs just hours after the Kentucky Derby was run at the track. Police have ruled the death a homicide, Louisville Metro Police spokeswoman Alicia Smiley said Sunday. Authorities received a call at about 5 a.m. on Sunday reporting a body found in a barn not far from where I’ll Have Another, the horse that won Saturday’s race, was stabled.

There was no identification on the body, but Smiley said the victim is a Hispanic man. She said the cause of death would be determined by the coroner. Police have no suspects.

On Saturday, I’ll Have Another, ridden by jockey Mario Gutierrez, won the 138th running of the tradition-rich Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs in a stunning finish before a record crowd of more than 165,000 people. Investigators don’t know whether the death is connected to the Kentucky Derby.
