7-year-old Gabbi Doolin's body was found near Allen County-Scottsville High School on Saturday, November 14.

Nearly 6 days later, Timothy Madden of Scottsville was arrested in connection with her death, a crime he insists he didn't commit.

"It's all bogus. I'm a very innocent man, they can ask anybody that knows me," said Madden in an interview with WDRB Friday night.

Madden went to school with Gabbi's father, Brian Doolin, and said their daughters were around one another frequently.

"My little daughter, she played, cheerleaded with the little girl."

Madden doesn't deny he was at the football game that night, nor does he deny he saw Gabbi there.

"Last time I seen her we was, I was sitting over on the side of the stand like always watchin', smokin' cigarette and she walked by and the other 2 girls came acro-- through there first, I don't know. A minute before. And then she came over there and was lookin' around I said "They went that way," and that was the last time I seen her."

Madden told WDRB people didn't start looking for Gabbi for another 30 or 45 minutes after the encounter he described above.

KSP said Gabbi's body was found just after 8 pm that night.

"I'm sorry for their loss. I feel sorry for 'em but wasn't me," said Madden.

But according to DNA records obtained by KSP and analyzed by the KSP Forensic Laboratory in Frankfort, Madden is the only suspect.

"I give 'em my clothes that night. I think, well, they did mention that I had blood on my clothes or somethin'. But I could have rubbed against the fence like I said. Rubbed against a trash can. It's the only thing I know where I'd get blood from, but it wasn't me."

Madden said he had witnesses that could prove he was at the game the whole time.

"Oh yeah, there's several people there. I've got all kinds of people that verify that I was there, you know? And seen me. I even took pictures on my phone to prove I was there."

But if Madden didn't murder Gabbi Doolin, why did he feel the need to take pictures to prove he was there?

"To send to my ex-wife cause she didn't, wasn't there and she wanted to see Blake playin' football."

But the question wasn't whether he was ever at the game.

It was, "Did he kill Gabbi Doolin?" and "What evidence was there against him?"

When WDRB asked Madden "Why are people pointing fingers?" Madden pointed his at KSP.

"I have no idea. I guess cause KSP started a rumor. 'Cause when they showed up to the house they brought the news cameras with 'em."

Madden insisted he would be found innocent in a court of law.

"I will sue KSP and everybody else that's slandering my name," said Madden. "But I ain't got nothin' else to say."

Madden was scheduled to be arraigned in court at 3:30 on Monday in Allen District Court. He is charged with kidnapping, rape, sodomy and murder.
