A horse groomer was found dead at Churchill Downs in Louisville, KY, less than 12 hours after I’ll Have Another won the Kentucky Derby.
Race track security discovered the murdered man, 48-year-old Adan Fabian Perez, in barn number 8 around 5 am Sunday, according to ABC News.
He lived on the race track grounds and worked there since 2008.
Perez was a licensed horse groomer and Guatemalan immigrant.
His dead body was found just 400 feet from where Kentucky Derby winner I’ll Have Another was stabled and only 75 feet from the Churchill Downs track.

Perez was reportedly involved in some sort of fight just after midnight on the backside area of the track.
“At this time, a homicide detective is currently interviewing witnesses and individuals who might be involved or have information regarding the case and the medical examiner is doing the autopsy at this time,” Lt. Barry Wilkerson of the Louisville Metro Police Department, said today at a news conference.
Wilkerson also spoke about numerous reported “altercations” leading up to the body’s discovery, but would not go into detail about them.
“We are hearing that there were some altercations earlier in the day, but we’re not sure if they were related to this,” Wilkerson said. “Was [Perez] involved? We’re not sure.”
On Sunday, police spokeswoman Alicia Smiley told ABC that authorities had found “evidence of injuries that lead us to believe he was involved in an altercation and that foul play was involved.”
The 2012 Kentucky Derby had a record 165,000 people in the crowd at Churchill Downs.

Does the sun have the power to transform humankind?
In Solar (R)evolution, world-renowned German biophysicist Dieter Broers makes a compelling case, pointing to a wealth of scientific evidence that shows a remarkable correlation between increases in solar activity and advances in our creative, mental, and spiritual abilities.
We are in the midst of a dramatic rise in solar disturbances, which have the capability of disrupting the Earth’s geomagnetic field and, as a result, our global ecology. Broers, however, sees this not as an impending apocalypse but as the dawn of a new era.
Drawing on research from a variety of disciplines, he shows how erupting solar activity carries the potential to boost our brain capacity and expand our minds in ways we never imagined possible. Abilities now seen as extraordinary or supernatural—telepathy, extrasensory perception, and off-the-charts intelligence quotients—may soon become ordinary and natural and could very well help us solve the mounting global crises we are facing.
Humankind is going through an evolutionary leap, says Broers, and the process has already begun.
