LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- On November 5th at 5 in the evening, police were called to a residence on Hickman Avenue near Camp Taylor Elementary School after 42-year-old Carey Bush was found unresponsive inside his apartment.

"Makes you sick at your stomach," neighbor Betty Gillaspie told WDRB.

Bush was taken to the hospital where he later died.

Police believe he was killed.

"At this time, we have not been able to identify the suspects," said Detective Anthony Wilder, LMPD.

Neighbor Betty Gillaspie has lived in the neighborhood for ten years and says she's shocked a murder happened just a few doors down.

"I've always felt pretty safe you know in the neighborhood and this is very upsetting," said Gillaspie.

Police say right now, they're relying on information from witnesses.

"At the time, two black males were seen leaving the victim's apartment," said Wilder.

Police say those two men left the scene in Bush's car, which was later recovered about two miles away.

"The car's been processed and we're sending any evidence away to be analyzed at the KSP lab," Wilder told reporters at a news conference Thursday.

"One suspect being a black male, approximately 5 foot 6, 18 to 22 years of age with a short fade hair cut," he added.

With the help of witnesses and a sketch artist, police came up with the sketch pictured of the second suspect -- also a black male, 5 foot 6, said to be in his late 20s.

Police say composite sketches are rarely used anymore but since they don't know the suspect's identity, this is the best they can provide.

"It has generated a few leads as far as possible matches but because of the nature of the photograph, things could be off," said Wilder.

But no one in the neighborhood seems to recognize the person in the sketch.

Gillaspie says she hopes the men are found and brought to justice.

"Hope that they get the people who are responsible for it and put them away."

If you know any information, you're asked to call police at 574-LMPD.
