A new poll suggests that a man charged in the brutal death of a young Scottsville girl can’t get a fair trial in Allen or adjacent counties.
A random sample of residents in Warren, Barren, Simpson, Monroe, and Christian counties was taken to gauge their knowledge and opinions about the case of Timothy Madden. He’s charged in the kidnapping, rape, and murder of seven-year-old Gabbi Doolin in 2015.
Fifty-six percent of respondents in Warren County felt Madden was guilty of the crime and nearly 50 percent had the same opinion in Barren and Simpson counties. Farther away in Christian County, just 11 percent of those polled thought Madden was guilty.
