A reporter asked if he had anything to say, and Madden replied, ‘I’m innocent.’ A source revealed to the station WKRN that Madden has five children and attended high school with Gabriella’s father, Brian Doolin, who is the same age as the suspect.

According to his Facebook page, which has since been deleted, Madden works in construction and lives with his wife, Jodi, in Scottsville, as the site first reported. A GoFundMe campaign started by a friend claimed Jodi King Madden has a rare condition called Takayasu’s Arteritis and has suffered three strokes since late August, resulting in her hospitalization. More than 500 people in the tight-knit community gathered Sunday night for a vigil with Gabby’s parents Brian and Amy Doolin to honor and remember their little girl. ‘We are a great city, a great community,’ he said. ‘We love one another.

But it’s a constant reminder that evil has no borders or boundaries.’ ‘Our children are safe going to school,’ he wrote. ‘This terrible tragedy is being treated as an isolated incident and we do not feel there is an ongoing threat.’ Doolin’s funeral was held Thursday at Scottsville Baptist Church.
