Girl, 7, found dead after disappearing during high school football game

A 7-year-old Kentucky girl whose body was found in a creek behind a high school was murdered, state police said Sunday, and now authorities are hunting for her killer.

Gabriella Doolin, of Allen County, was watching a football game at the Allen County Scottsville High School when she disappeared Saturday evening. Police said her mother reported her missing. A short time later, police searching a wooded area behind the high school found her body in the creek. Early Sunday, police said her death was being investigated as a homicide.

“This could happen anywhere, very quickly,” police spokesman B.J. Eaton told WBKO-TV. “I think it’s safe to say Allen County has changed forever.”

After interviewing witnesses, police followed a tip that led to the girl’s discovery, WAVE-TV reported. The medical examiner’s office in Louisville will perform an autopsy to determine the cause of death. Police said they have no suspects or persons of interest in the case.
