LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – Police are asking for the communities help to identify two men who witnesses said left the home of an assault victim who later died.

According to Louisville Metro Police Department Detective Anthony Wilder, on November 5 officers responded to a report of an assault at a home on Hickman Avenue.

Inside the home officers found Carey Bush, who lived in the home, unresponsive. He was taken to an area hospital where he died.

Wilder said on the same day as the assault a witness reported seeing two men leaving the home in Bush's Subaru Forester. Police recovered the vehicle a few hours later in the 2100 block of South Shelby Street, but did not find either of the men wanted for questioning.

Police released a sketch of one of the men wanted for questioning on Thursday. The man in the sketch is described as being in his late 20s, around 5'6'' with short wavy hair and a light mustache.

Wilder said witnesses described the other man as being between 18 to 22 years old, 5'6'' tall with a short fade haircut.

Police said they do not have a clear motive for the assault and hope the sketch will generate leads.

Anyone with information is asked to call the anonymous tip line at (502) 574-LMPD.
