-Kidnapping (Victim Death)

Timothy Madden was scheduled to be arraigned in Allen Circuit Court on January 13th at 1:00 PM.


Timothy Madden was indicted by special grand jury Friday morning in Allen County on charges of Murder, Kidnapping, Rape, and Sodomy in the death of 7-year-old Gabbi Doolin.

Those were the same charges Madden pleaded not guilty to during his arraignment on November 23rd.

Madden was scheduled for a preliminary hearing on November 30th, but it was postponed to December 14th after Madden's attorney, Travis Lock, received DNA evidence hours before the hearing was set to begin.

The hearing was supposed to lay out state's evidence against Madden, including details of the crime and how he was first identified as a suspect, but now we're not expected to hear any more significant information until trial, if he doesn't plead guilty in circuit court.

"I'm not surprised. Frankly, I'm surprised it didn't happen sooner."

Madden's attorney Travis Lock says the DNA report he's received in the case doesn't make his client guilty by any means.

"There's a tremendous amount of room for error in DNA. There will be a number of things that will have to be investigated to determine whether or not the results of any DNA tests are valid."

When asked about how his client was holding up, Lock said he's maintaining what he told reporters the day he was arrested.

"Mr. Madden has gone on record, obviously he's gone on record proclaiming his innocence. He has not wavered from that."

In an interview with WDRB, Madden stated that he did see Gabbi Doolin that night.

"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 WBKO while being booked into the Allen County Detention Center that he was "sorry for their loss, but it wasn't me."

We spoke with Commonwealth Attorney Clint Willis Friday afternoon. He said he and the Doolin family will sit down together after the new year to discuss whether or not they plan to seek the death penalty in this case.

Bond is set at $1 million.

Timothy Madden will be arraigned in Allen Circuit Court on January 13th at 1:00 PM.
