Architect's death ruled a homicide, police seeking public's help finding suspects

A man's death after a fight in Austin's entertainment district last week leads police to ask for tips from the public. Police say late Sunday night last week, 35-year-old Matthew Casey was involved in a fight along Neches Street near East Sixth. Somebody punched him and he hit his head on the curb and later died. Sergeant Scott Ehlert says they're now looking for two people. Ehlert says a young man and a woman, both athletic and wearing ballcaps, were caught on tape walking away from the scene near East Sixth and Neches that Sunday night. There's been speculation that the attackers are homeless, but police say they have no evidence of that. It's eerily similar to the punch-and-run incidents of two years ago. The first suspect is described as a white female in her mid 20's, 5'6" to 5'8", last seen wearing a pink and blue short jumper with a single strap over her right shoulder. Ehlert says the other person is a guy in his early 20s, 5'6" to 5'8" with a thin build and short hair. He's covered in tattoos, with the word Texas across his back. They're asking anybody with information to call police.
