The Bullitt County Sheriff's Office has released more details after a woman's body was found in a burned out home.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The Bullitt County Sheriff's Office has released more details after a woman's body was found in a burned out home.
Police were sent to the home in the 200 block of Audubon Drive just after 9:30 p.m. Wednesday. Upon arrival, the home was fully engulfed, and the body of a female was found inside.
During a news conference Friday, Capt. Mike Murdoch with the Bullitt County Sheriff's Office said they knew almost immediately after arriving that the victim had been murdered. No information about how she was killed has been released.
Now they're looking for her live-in boyfriend, 60-year-old Craig Ickes, who may be in danger.
Ickes is described as 6'4", weighs 175 pounds with gray hair, a mustache and a short gray beard. Police say he was last seen Wednesday, the same day the fire was reported.
The victim has not yet been positively identified but police are awaiting results of an autopsy from the coroner's office.
Murdoch says investigators do not believe the murder was random, and that sheriff's deputies have been called to the home in the past. He also said a large amount of ammunition found in the home.
Anyone with information on Ickes' whereabouts is asked to call the Bullitt County Sheriff's Department at 502-543-2514 or contact them via social media.
