Police investigating after apparent homicide in Valley Station

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Police say there are lots of unanswered questions after a man is found dead inside a Valley Station home.

Police are still looking to answer several questions, including how the victim died.  The victim has been identified as 31-year-old Joshua Cowles of the 5700 block of Alicante Lane.  He was pronounced dead at the scene at 6:12 a.m. of several gunshot wounds.

Louisville Metro Police detectives said they have questioned a woman in connection with the man's death. 

The news has stirred quite a buzz in what neighbors call a "quiet neighborhood."

"Shock" is the word that's the word neighbors used to describe the glossy yellow tape blocking off their street in Valley Station.

"I was really shocked! You know. You really don't expect anything like this in a neighborhood as quiet as this one is," said neighbor Sylas Hobbs.

"When officers arrived they did find what appears to be a white male inside the home deceased," said LMPD Spokesperson Dwight Mitchell.

While investigators are still trying to piece together just what happened inside that little brick house on that quiet street, those looking from the outside in say merely seeing at the yellow tape is enough to put them on edge.

"It don't make me feel very good, but of course those things can happen any place," Hobbs said.

Others who live around the block say the home has had a lot of traffic coming in and out. 

Police say several people were inside the home at the time of the crime. They cannot say for certain just who or what happened even hours after the incident.

"We haven't ruled out any factors at this point," Mitchell said.

Mitchell said an arrest or charges could come in the future.  Police say the man's death was no accident.

"We do suspect foul play at this time," Mitchell said.

Anyone with information is asked to call police.  Police have been interviewing a female, who is described as a "person of interest" in the case.

We're told a domestic dispute may have led to the victim's death, but police have not confirmed that information. Neighbors tell WDRB several cars stayed parked outside of the residence.
