Police Arrest Man in Death of 7-Year-Old Girl Taken from Football Game
Kentucky authorities have arrested a man in connection with the death of 7-year-old Gabriella "Gabbi" Doolin, who went missing during her brother's football game last weekend.
Timothy Madden, 38, was taken into custody by Kentucky State Police on Friday morning, according to WBKO.
Madden reportedly attended Allen County-Scottsville High School and graduated in 1996. He was a student there at the same time as Gabbi's father.
Police could be seen searching his home the night after Gabbi was killed. According to Madden's Facebook page, he works in construction.
Gabbi’s parents took her to a high school football game in Scottsville on Saturday, and at some point got separated from the little girl, Jon Scott said on “Happening Now” this afternoon.
They immediately started a search, finding Gabbi's body in a creek behind the high school only 25 minutes later.
An autopsy conducted the next day ruled her death a homicide, according to the Associated Press.
The funeral for Gabbi was held yesterday.
