West Virginia boy claims Kentucky suspect targeted him
SCOTTSVILLE, Ky. (AP) – A Kentucky State Police affidavit says a man charged in the killing of a 7-year-old girl was identified by a West Virginia boy as someone who allegedly tried to lure him into a vehicle a month before the girl’s death.
The Bowling Green Daily News reports Detective Wesley Medley filed the affidavit for a search warrant last month in the case of Timothy Madden of Scottsville.
Madden has pleaded not guilty to murder, kidnapping, rape and sodomy charges in the November death of Gabriella Doolin.
The affidavit says a boy watching a television account of Madden’s arrest told his father that the suspect was the same man who allegedly asked him and another boy to get into his vehicle Oct. 9 at a gas station in Mason, West Virginia.
