Police Looking for Murder Suspect

One man is dead following a fight in Barren County on Tuesday. Kentucky State Police were called out to Mount Herman in Southern Barren County, near the Monroe County line, just after 6 a.m. Tuesday morning.

When they arrived, they found 27 year old Jose Juan Carillo Blanco, dead from a gunshot wound. KSP investigators say they're looking for a Hispanic male in connection with this murder. They say this un-named Hispanic male came to Blanco's house on Button Road, got in a fight with him and shot him.

The suspect supposedly fled the scene in a white Honda. That car was later found wrecked and abandoned on Lyon School Road not far from the scene. The suspect was nowhere to be found.
