‘I had blood on my clothes because I brushed against a fence’: Married father-of-five accused of raping and murdering girl at football game insists he is innocent.

Officers cuffed Timothy Madden, 38, on Friday in connection with the death of Allen County Scottsville High School child cheerleader Gabriella Doolin, Kentucky State Trooper B.J.

Doolin was reported missing around 7.40pm Saturday by her mother while they were at a football game at Allen County-Scottsville High School in south-central Kentucky. Madden (right) is now facing charges of murder, rape and sodomy The station WAVE3 recorded Madden this afternoon, in handcuffs and wearing a blue ‘Kentucky’ pullover, as he was being taken from the state police post in Bowling Green to a squad car just before the news conference began. 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. Gabriella Doolin served as a child cheerleader for a local high school football team and her mom reported her missing at a game in Scottsville Saturday night.

Timothy Madden, whose children are aged from four months to 20 years old, was taken into custody in the case, charged with murder, kidnapping, first-degree rape and first-degree sodomy. 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. I think – yeah, they did mention I had blood on my clothes or something, but because I rubbed against a fence – like I said, rubbed against a trash can.

Authorities immediately began searching for Gabby and found her body 25 minutes later in a creek in a wooded area just 400 yards away from the school at 8.05pm. Asked to give his version of events, Madden said: ‘Last time I seen her, I was we was – I was – sitting on the side of the [INAUDIBLE], like I always, watching the…smoking a cigarette. 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.
