SCOTTSVILLE, Ky. (WKRN) – A 38-year-old man was arrested in the murder of a young girl in Kentucky.

Kentucky State Police said Friday that Timmy Madden is now facing charges in Gabriella “Gabbi” Doolin’s death.

The 7-year-old was found dead in a small stream of water behind Allen County Scottsville High School last Saturday during a little league game. Her death was ruled a homicide two days later.

A source confirmed to News 2 that Madden is a local father of five children and attended high school with victim’s father, who is the same age. The source also said he was sitting near the family that night.

His charges have yet to be released.

The cause of Gabbi’s death wasn’t immediately known. The investigation is ongoing.

South Warren High School in Bowling Green is having a pink-out for Gabbi at Friday’s game.
