In Marrero murder-suicide, 'picture perfect' family of 4 dead

Few imagined such a crime could happen -- a triple murder and suicide -- in a middle-class Marrero neighborhood so thick with law enforcement officers that residents call it Cop Land. It's the kind of place where everyone waves hello but no one gets in each other's business.

When family gathered outside the yellow crime-scene tape Sunday (Nov. 29) in the Oak Forest subdivision, they comforted the sobbing teenager who had returned from a hunting trip to find her mother and stepfather dead in their living room in the 4800 Brandi Street. What she hadn't seen, when she ran out to call 911, were her two half-brothers: In separate bedrooms, they, too, were dead.

Jefferson Parish Sheriff Newell Normand said David Mata, 46, fatally stabbed his wife, Kelli Fabre Mata, 40, and their sons, Caden Mata, 4, and Liam Mata, 2, sometime before 11 a.m. It was not immediately certain how David Mata killed himself, but a Sheriff's Office spokesman, Col. John Fortunato, said a straight-blade knife was found under his body.

"I didn't think he would do something like that. He was such a good person," said a friend of Kelli Mata's 18-year-old daughter, who discovered the crime. "He was happy with her." The two friends are seniors at Fisher Middle-High School in Jean Lafitte; Kelli Mata had another daughter as well, the friend said.

Indeed, David Mata's Facebook page is filled with photos of him and his wife, arms around each other and smiling. Their towheaded sons pose proudly in superhero Halloween costumes.

Mata was from Spain, and the couple had been married since April 2012, according to his Facebook profile. The page speaks of the power of keeping God in one's heart.

JPSO updates on Marrero murder-suicide Nov. 29, 2015 -- triple-murder and suicide in Marrero.

The couple had rented the house for less than a year, property owner Jason Bordelon said. David Mata worked as a mechanic at a big car dealership on the east bank; his wife was a homemaker. They always paid their rent on time. "Picture-perfect family," Bordelon said.

However, 24th Judicial District Court records whisper at trouble in the past. In 2010, before the couple lived together, Mata pleaded guilty to assaulting Fabre. He was given a suspended sentence of one year in prison and fined $540.

Much earlier, in 2002, he pleaded guilty to possessing 1,000 anabolic steroid tablets after a sting operation at his Marrero home. He was placed on probation for three years

Fabre was charged in 2011 with writing a worthless check for $700 to Twelde's Lafitte Drugs. She pleaded not guilty and paid in full; the charge was dismissed.

Mata had been married before, and his divorce was acrimonious. His then-wife charged he had deserted her and was living with Kelli Fabre, according to court records. Mata said she forced him to move out and had escapades of her own. The divorce was denied in 2010 but granted in 2012.

"I just talked to him on Thanksgiving. I mean, he seemed like he was doing perfectly fine," said a 14-year-old neighbor who cut the Matas' grass. "They were fun. I never saw them argue, really," just minor disagreements. But "once you hear this, you've got to take that to a whole 'nother level."

As people rode by in golf carts, the youth added, "It's kind of hard to picture in this neighborhood." The Oak Forest Community Association scheduled a 5 p.m. prayer vigil.

Outside the Matas' low, brick-ranch house, the couple's vehicles, a black Ford Edge hatchback and a blue Ford F-150 pickup truck, were parked in the driveway. The front door lights were on. Inside the door, as the authorities rolled up the crime tape, a small backpack could be seen hanging on a peg, an even smaller pair of shoes on the floor.

Euric Cain accused of kidnapping, raping couple day after allegedly shooting Tulane medical student




Euric Cain, the man indicted in the shooting of Tulane medical student Peter Gold, was accused Wednesday (Dec. 9) of kidnapping and raping a couple that police said he carjacked less than 24 hours after shooting Gold.

Cain, 21, already is jailed on a $6 million bond after his Dec. 3 indictment for the shooting. Now NOPD investigators say video and DNA evidence links Cain to the couple's kidnapping and rape less the day after the shooting.

Cain was booked Wednesday with two counts of first-degree rape, two counts of second-degree kidnapping, two counts of armed robbery and two counts of carjacking in connection with the couple's attack, reported Nov. 21 at 3 a.m.

The victims in the two incidents are not connected other than by Cain being accused in the crimes.

In Gold's shooting, prosecutors said Cain was the man captured on video surveillance robbing and attempting to kidnap a woman around 4 a.m. Nov. 20 in the Lower Garden District. New Orleans police said Gold, 25, attempted to intervene in the crime and was shot in the stomach by Cain.

Cain has pleaded not guilty to the shooting. NOPD investigators said Cain is the man seen on a chilling video sequence shooting Gold in the midsection and then attempting three times to shoot Gold in the head, only to have his gun jam.

According to the new arrest documents, the second attack occurred when a male-female couple was entering a car parked near St. Philip and Henriette Delille streets in Treme early Nov. 21.

An armed man hopped into the back seat of their car and demanded the couple's cash and credit cards at gunpoint, the documents say. The suspect, who police said has been identified as Cain, ordered the woman to drive the car about four miles away to the parking lot of an abandoned school near Abundance and Press streets in the Desire neighborhood.

There, according to police, Cain ordered the couple into the back seat of the car. Cain raped the woman, according to an arrest warrant affidavit. The report said Cain then also forced the man to perform oral sex on him at gunpoint.

The documents said that when the assaults finished, Cain ordered the victims out of the car and threatened to kill them if they notified police. The report said Cain drove away in their car and the victims called police from a nearby store.

Cain was arrested two days later in connection to Gold's shooting, when authorities said they learned he had been driving and was in possession of the black Ford Focus stolen from the raped couple.

NOPD Sex Crimes Detective Keisha Ferdinand wrote in her request for an arrest warrant that police obtained video evidence showing Cain using one of the couple's stolen credit cards at a store. On Dec. 3, Ferdinand wrote, the Louisiana State Police Crime Lab returned a DNA match from ejaculate fluid left on the raped woman to an existing sample from Cain in the CODIS database.

On Tuesday, police confirmed with the victim that she did not know nor engage in consensual sexual acts with Cain, and the warrant was approved early Wednesday morning.

Nictoria Washington, described as Cain's 17-year-old girlfriend, was indicted last week on the allegation of being an accessory after the fact to attempted first-degree murder in Gold's shooting. Police said Washington harbored Cain at a home in the 2200 block of Delachaise Street, where he was arrested Nov. 23.

Washington is not mentioned in court documents as a party to the carjacking and rape allegations.

Cain's bond was increased by $1 million, to $7 million total, based on the new allegations.

Cain faces a mandatory life sentences if convicted of his charges. Washington faces a prison term of up to five years if found guilty.

People are really pissed about this. I'd like to know what led up to this.

Days before due date, couple and unborn child gunned down in eastern New Orleans


Those close to Lionel Delpit III knew the 25-year-old's conversations were dominated by a single topic over the last several months. He and his 23-year-old girlfriend, Breon Stewart, were preparing to close out the year by welcoming the birth of a son: Lionel Delpit IV.

"He was so excited about being a dad," Delpit's cousin, Corey Rayford said. "All he talked about was the baby." 

Outside their eastern New Orleans apartment Wednesday night (Dec. 16), the young couple sat together in his blue Chrysler PT Cruiser when, authorities believe, one or more gunmen opened fire. 

When the shooting stopped, all three were dead

"I'm trying to get my head together," Rayford said. "I just don't know."

New Orleans police found the couple, the city's 150th and 151st homicide victims of 2015, shortly before 10 p.m. Wednesday. Dozens of evidence markers surrounded the car, as detectives worked through the rain to investigate the shooting inside the Wind Run apartments, 12151 North Interstate 10 Service Road.

Cmdr. Doug Eckert, leader of the department's Criminal Investigations Division, said the couple appears to have been the intended target of the gunfire. Detectives are not sure whether there was more than one shooter, Eckert said, adding that investigators are chasing potential suspect leads. 

Raw video from scene of double murder in New Orleans East Raw video from the scene as New Orleans Police investigate after a man and a woman were found shot to death in a car at the Wind Run apartments in the 12100 block of N. I-10 Service Road in New Orleans East on Wednesday, December 16, 2015.

"There is no good time for a homicide," he said. "But right before the holidays makes it worse."

Police classified the incident as a double homicide, and are waiting for an official autopsy report before deciding whether to add another charge in connection with the death of the couple's unborn child. His birth was due Dec. 29.

"It was senseless," said Kioke Johnson, a cousin of Stewart.

'They didn't just take her life'

Johnson was with other members of Stewart's family Thursday as they gathered at a 7th Ward home to absorb the news.

"They didn't just take (Stewart's) life, her child lost his life, too," she said.

Stewart and her twin sister, Brittnee Stewart, shared the pains and joy of pregnancy together. Brittnee Stewart gave birth to her daughter just last week, Johnson said. The whole family awaited with excitement for little Lionel's arrival. 

"She feels like she lost part of her soul," Johnson said, asked how Brittnee is coping.

Johnson said those who knew Breon Stewart agreed: "There's nothing bad you could say about her." 

Breon Stewart graduated in 2011 from George Washington Carver High School, where The Times-Picayune archives indicate she was the valedictorian. Again, she shared the experience with her twin: Brittnee Stewart was salutatorian the same year.

Breon Stewart worked in a clothing store while she attended college, Johnson said. She planned to graduate next year and become a nurse.

"She was a beautiful person. Smart, very stylish," Johnson said. "She had a lot going for herself as a young lady." 

Delpit worked two jobs and was the little chief of the Black Feather Mardi Gras Indian tribe, which his father, Lionel Delpit Jr., and other family members started in the early 1990s. Rayford said his cousin was being groomed to become the tribe's chief after his father's death in 2011. 

"He never had a chance to put on a suit and go out as active chief," said tribe member Stafford Agee of Delpit.

Johnson said she can't imagine why someone would want to kill her cousin.

"We just want the community to come together if they know anything," she said. "We just want justice. 

Anyone with information about this shooting should contact Crimestoppers at 504-822-1111.

Pastor says he picks 'love, not hate' after teen's arrest in pregnant wife's murder

Pastor pregnant wife killed Davey Blackburn orig vstan_00000000

Man arrested in connection with death of pastor's wife 02:15

Story highlights

  • Prosecutor announces that a 2nd man -- a 21-year-old -- is also charged with murder
  • Victim's husband says he wants to be angry, but "today I am deciding to love, not hate"
  • Police, federal marshals arrest Larry Taylor, 18, in murder of Indianapolis preacher's wife

(CNN)Indianapolis police arrested a teen and a 21-year-old Monday in the murder of Amanda Blackburn, a pregnant mother and wife of a preacher who was shot and killed in a home invasion, authorities said.

Larry Taylor, 18, of Indianapolis was initially charged with murder in the shooting, Sgt. Kendale Adams of the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department said, but Marion County prosecutors will decide on final charges.

A charging document -- which the prosecutor's spokeswoman, Peg McLeish, said is in the process of being filed with the courts -- states that Taylor will face two counts of murder, murder while in the commission or attempted commission of one of a host of other crimes, burglary resulting in serious bodily injury, robbery resulting in serious bodily injury, two counts of burglary, criminal confinement while armed with a deadly weapon, three counts of theft of property valued between $750 and $50,000, auto theft and carrying a handgun without a license. All but the last charge are felonies.

Later Monday, Marion County Prosecutor Terry Curry announced a second arrest in the murder. Jalen Watson, 21, of Indianapolis faces the same charges as Taylor, with the exceptions that his charging document mentions only two murder charges, where Taylor's includes three, and there are no charges for criminal confinement or carrying a handgun without a license.

Detectives from the IMPD's violent crimes unit worked with the gangs unit and federal marshals to take Taylor in. IMPD Chief Rick Hite praised the cooperation that led to the arrest.

"Our detectives have worked tirelessly, going days without sleep, to solve murders in our city. With the assistance of Assistant U.S. Attorney Josh Minkler and Prosecutor Terry Curry justice will be done!" he said in a statement.

A promise

The arrests came 10 days after top police officials vowed in no uncertain terms to bring the killer to justice.

"We're coming to get you," Hite said at a November 13 news conference.

His assistant commander of investigations, Maj. Eric Hench, also promised results: "To the individual that committed this crime, you are not as good as you think you are. You left behind evidence. We will find it. We have found it. We will find you and we will not stop until we get you."

Police were called to the Blackburns' home on the morning of November 10 and found Amanda Blackburn, who had been shot, an IMPD news release said.

"When officers arrived, they located the victim at the home, unresponsive, and suffering from apparent signs of trauma," the release said.

She was taken to Indiana University Health Methodist Hospital, where she died the following day.

Amanda Blackburn, 28, was married to Resonate Church Pastor Davey Blackburn and was pregnant when she died, according to a statement from her husband that recounted how a gunman critically wounded his wife and "the next day Amanda and her unborn daughter, Everette 'Evie' Grace Blackburn, passed away as a result of her injuries."

One of the family's representatives, Suzanne Swift, told CNN that Amanda Blackburn was 13 weeks pregnant.

'Everything inside of me wants to hate'

The couple's 1-year-old son, Weston, was home when the shooting occurred. He was unharmed. Davey Blackburn, 30, discovered his wife after returning from the gym that morning, the couple's church said.

The Blackburns moved to Indianapolis in 2012 to start Resonate Church, and "Amanda made it her life's calling to love and serve everyone she knew. Even more, she has made it her life's mission to see as many people as possible come to know Jesus as their personal Savior," a statement said.

Following news of Monday's arrests, Davey Blackburn commended the IMPD's compassion and professionalism, and he put forth three hopes he has for the case: that the courts have the "wisdom on how to prosecute this man," that the perpetrator faces "great consequences" for his crimes and experiences the "life-transforming power" of Jesus' mercy and grace, and "that Jesus would give me and our family a heart of forgiveness."

Davey Blackburn further said police had ensured him that they have a "solidly built case" against the suspect.

"Though everything inside of me wants to hate, be angry, and slip into despair I choose the route of forgiveness, grace and hope," Davey Blackburn said in his statement. "If there is one thing I've learned from Amanda in the 10 years we were together, it's this: Choosing to let my emotions drive my decisions is recipe for a hopeless and fruitless life. Today I am deciding to love, not hate."

CNN's Joe Sutton and Tiffany Ap contributed to this report.

Police say investigations ongoing in on-the-road homicide

Staff Reports 11:37 a.m. CST November 23, 2015

UPDATE:

Bossier Police are still investigating a case where a mother shot and killed her son and injured a female passenger from the back seat of a vehicle driving down I-20 on Saturday night.

The 40-year-old woman, whose name still has not been released at this time, is expected to survive her injury, said public information officer Bill Davis. Police had a chance to question the woman, who said that she and Patrick Hollingsworth had not kidnapped Dora Blake; rather, the three had gone to a casino to celebrate Blake's upcoming birthday.

The "why" of the shooting is still under investigation. Blake was heavily intoxicated at the time, according to detectives.

"At this point it looks like her intoxication played a big role," Davis said.

Original Article:

Police are unraveling a disturbing scene in Bossier after they say a Minden woman murdered her son and a woman Saturday night.

Dora Blake, a 47-year-old from the 400 block of Woodard Street in Minden, is sitting in the Bossier Maximum Security Facility on a $1 million bond. She was treated at a hospital for injuries she sustained during the car crash that followed the shooting.

The vehicle Blake was in was traveling east on Interstate 20 Saturday night after visiting a casino in Bossier City, police said. Police said they were headed either to Minden or to Jonesboro, where Blake is originally from.

Sunday was Blake's birthday and she was apparently celebrating with the other passengers, including her 22-year-old son, Patrick Hollingsworth. Hollingsworth also goes by Patrick Watkins.

Police do not know why Blake, who was in the back seat, took out a handgun while they were all in the vehicle or why she shot and killed her son and shot and injured a female passenger in her 40s, who police did not identify.

Both victims were in the front seat, and the vehicle crashed into the trees after.

Detectives found Hollingsworth dead while investigating the crash scene around 10:20 p.m. The other woman was taken to the hospital and is expected to survive.

Some people had pulled over to help and advised deputies Blake told them she'd been kidnapped and had managed to shoot her abductors.

"None of that made sense, that there was any type of kidnapping," Bossier Sheriff's Office spokesman Lt. Bill Davis said. "Witnesses tell us when she got out of the rear of the vehicle, she told witnesses she was kidnapped and had just shot two people in the car."

Blake was transported to the hospital for medical observation following the crash and arrested on first degree and attempted first degree murder charges. Detectives say Blake was highly intoxicated.

Mayor to Euric Cain, suspect in Tulane student's shooting: 'We are going to find you'


Mayor Mitch Landrieu, NOPD Chief Michael Harrison discuss shooter of Tulane medical student New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu and New Orleans Police Supt. Michael Harrison announce that a suspect has been identified in the shooting of Tulane Medical School student Peter Gold, who was coming to the assistance of a woman being abducted in the 1000 block of St. Mary Street early Friday morning.









New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu had a warning Sunday (Nov. 22) for Euric Cain, the suspect in the early Friday shooting of "good Samaritan" Tulane Medical School fourth-year student Peter Gold: "We know who you are and you need to know that we are going to find you."

Landrieu and New Orleans Police Commissioner Michael Harrison said Cain had been identified from surveillance videos released by the police department over the weekend that showed a gunman shoot Gold, 25, in the 1000 block of St. Mary Street.

The New Orleans Police Department has named Euric Cain as a suspect in the shooting of a Tulane Medical School student and attempted kidnapping of a woman.

Landrieu said Gold "saw a man dragging a woman towards a vehicle. He recognized that something was wrong, and when tried to intercede, the suspect then stopped, demanded money from him.

"Dr. Gold put his hands up," Landrieu said. "The suspect then shot him in the stomach in an unprovoked attack and then attempted to kill him twice. Fortunately the gun jammed."

Police said the assailant's gun jammed and he then took the woman's purse and fled the area in a gray or silver SUV, much of which was caught by surveillance cameras. On Sunday morning, detectives recovered a SUV believed used in the incident in the 2200 block of John Raphael Place.

Landrieu said Crimestoppers has offered a $12,500 reward for information leading to the suspect's arrest. And he warned anyone helping Cain that they, too, could be arrested.

"We need the public's help to do this, but there is no question that now that we know who he is, that he will be brought to justice," Landrieu said. "And anyone who harbors him is going to be arrested, and you're going to be convicted to the fullest extent of the law as well."

Landrieu also attempted to allay concerns about this and other recent violent crimes. 

"To the residents and to the visitors to New Orleans, we are going to do everything that we can to make sure that the city is safe," he said. "We are not going to back down."

Harrison said that the investigation leading to Cain's identification was led by Sixth District Detectives Walter Edmond and Michael Poluiki. Detectives have obtained arrest warrants for Cain  on charges of attempted first degree murder, second degree kidnapping and armed robbery.

"We know that Cain was last arrested on Nov. 2 for possession of a stolen cell phone that was taken in a carjacking in the first district," Harrison said. He said Cain's criminal record also includes charges of possession of a stolen vehicle and several weapons charges.

"From the footage of this incident, it is clear that this is a dangerous individual who doesn't value the lives of others," Harrison said. "He made a conscious decision to hurt our fellow citizens."

Harrison said detectives had interviewed the unidentified woman Saturday who was being dragged by the suspect when Gold intervened. He confirmed that the woman had been treated for injuries she had suffered during the struggle.

Landrieu said he and Harrison had also talked to Gold's family members, including his father, who is a graduate of the Tulane Medical School.

New Orleans police released surveillance footage of Tulane University medical student Peter Gold being shot early Friday morning (Nov. 20) while trying to stop an apparent armed robbery at Magazine and St. Mary streets in the Lower Garden District.

Warning: This video contains graphic images of a man being shot. 

Gold, 25, stopped his car upon seeing a man dragging a woman toward an SUV in the 1000 block of Saint Mary Street, police said. When he tried to help, police said the gunman pointed a weapon at Gold and demanded his money.  

"The victim explained to the suspect, repeatedly, that he did not have any cash," NOPD said in a news release. "The suspect became enraged and shot the victim once in the stomach and attempted to shoot him a second time, but the gun jammed." 

Tulane University and Crimestoppers are offering a $12,500 reward for information that leads to the arrest of a man who shot 25-year-old Peter Gold on Friday morning (Nov. 20) after Gold disrupted the man's attack of a woman. Detectives are sifting leads after police released surveillance video showing the incident, New Orleans Police Chief Michael Harrison said in an interview...

The gunman took the woman's purse and drove away in a gray or silver SUV, police said. She was not injured.

Gold was taken to an area hospital, police said, where he is listed in "guarded" condition. 

Tulane University's president, Mike Fitts, issued a statement identifying Gold as a fourth-year medical student whose parents and sister also attended the university.

"He is an outstanding student who represents the best of Tulane in every possible way," Fitts said.

Anyone with information about this man's identity or whereabouts should contact NOPD 6th District detectives at 504-658-6060, or Crimestoppers at 504-822-1111.

17 people shot in Bunny Friend Park Sunday night: NOPD





Seventeen people were injured Sunday night (Nov. 22) after gunfire erupted during a block party at Bunny Friend Park in the Upper 9th Ward, New Orleans Police Department officials said.

EMS transported 10 victims to area hospitals, and another six arrived at emergency rooms through private conveyance. Monday morning NOPD said a 17th victim had been confirmed

Speaking at the scene Sunday night, NOPD Superintendent Michael Harrison said he believed multiple people had fired into the crowd of more than 300. NOPD spokesman Tyler Gamble later confirmed that all victims are in stable condition.

"Detectives are still working to determine the extent of all of the victims' injuries," NOPD said in a news release. "Information on the age and gender of all victims involved as well as the extent of their injuries will be provided when it is available."

Several witnesses said the gathering was part of an after party for the Nine Times Social Aide & Pleasure Club's annual second line, which earlier in the day proceeded through the Desire and Florida Development neighborhoods before disbanding at Sampson Park in St. Roch. Harrison described the after-party as an "unpermitted event."

"We staffed the second line pretty heavily," Harrison said. The NOPD later received word of an impromptu music video being shot inside the park, he said. The event must have "circulated through social media," he added, "because we got no report of it."

Officers were dispatched to the park to shut the gathering down, Harrison said. "They were a block away when they heard gunshots and were flagged down" from there. EMS appeared on the scene soon after, he said.

(Emily Lane, NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune)

One witness, a nurse who declined to provide her name citing safety concerns, said two groups began shooting at each other around 6:15 p.m. "It was like New Year's Eve all over again," she said.

Multiple witnesses said they saw a man with a silver-colored machine gun fleeing the scene toward Louisa Street. They said the gunfire continued inside the park as the man ran away.

After the shooting, witnesses described several gunshot victims lying in the middle of Gallier Street and Desire Street as EMS responders administered to them.

Joseph Jordan was in a house across the street from the park with his friend, who gave her first name as Raven, when they heard gunshots. Later someone called Raven and told her that her niece had been shot. The two rushed to the hospital to check on the 14-year-old, who had been shot three times in the leg.

Speaking of the hospital, Jordan said: "It's still crowded back there."

Mayor Mitch Landrieu joined Harrison during a press conference at the scene. He applauded the quick response of the NOPD and EMS. 

"At the end of the day, it's really hard to police against a bunch of guys who decided to pull out guns and settle their disputes with 300 people in between them," Landrieu said. "It's not something you can tolerate in the city."

Both Harrison and Landrieu said they hoped that witnesses inside the park would help the NOPD to identify the shooters.

"This is a classic case where we need citizen help," Harrison said. "People know who did this. We need them to come forward and tell us so we can bring these people to justice."

They say most kids are killed within an hour of abduction. You can't turn your back for a second. There are some sick people out here.

Kentucky town shaken by killing of 7-year-old girl

(CNN)The killing happened quickly and left a small Kentucky town reeling.

The arrest took a week.

Gabriella "Gabbi" Doolin, 7, disappeared from a crowd watching a youth football game November 14 in Scottsville, a town of about 4,200 people near Bowling Green, CNN affiliate WSMV reported.

When her parents realized she was missing, an announcement was made on the public address system. The game was stopped and everybody in the stands started looking for her.

Less than half an hour later her body was found in a creek about 400 yards from the Allen County-Scottsville High School stadium, where the game had been played, WSMV said.

The town was shaken.

"It's just something we never thought would happen," Misty Hollars, a friend of the slain girl's father, told WSMV. "We are a small town. We watch everybody else's kids."

Scottsville mourned as small towns do.

A Facebook page was set up. A home run derby and a fishing tournament were organized to raise money to help the family with funeral expenses. T-shirts were sold with words remembering "Scottsville's little angel." A prayer vigil was held on the town square. A crowd attended the funeral Thursday.

On Friday, an arrest was made.

Timothy Madden, 38, of Scottsville, was charged with murder, kidnapping, first-degree rape and first-degree sodomy, Kentucky State Police said at a press conference.

In a jailhouse interview with CNN affiliate WDRB, Madden said the charges were "bogus."

"I've done nothing wrong," he said. "I'm a very innocent man. They can ask anybody that knows me."

Madden said he went to school with Gabbi's father and was friends with the Doolin family. He said he attended the game that night and his daughter cheered with Gabbi. Police interviewed him that night, he said.

"They interrogated me -- like three or four times," he told WDRB. "Polygraph. I give them my clothes that night. They did mention I had blood on my clothes. But I rubbed against the fence, like I said."

Madden is being held in the Barren County jail on a $1 million bond.

"I think it's safe to say Allen County has changed forever," said B.J. Eaton, public information officer for the Kentucky State Police post investigating the case, speaking to CNN affiliate WBKO.

Mark Ross, speaking to WBKO at a prayer vigil before the arrest was made, expressed the community's disbelief.

"You just don't realize that there are people that would do this that are in this community," he said. "I don't know if they're from here or where they're from, but that someone could actually do that in an area where you feel so safe. You just don't, you just don't think it could happen."

A former babysitter charged with abducting a two-year-old girl from her home in the middle of the night and dumping her eight miles away, naked and covered in injuries, was a college dropout who got engaged just weeks ago.

Abigail Hanna, 21 from Topsfield, Massachusetts, was arrested on Friday after Lyndon Albers a child who she looked after, was discovered lying on the side of the road three hours after she was reported missing.  

The toddler had cigarette burns on her body and her head had been shaved. She was taken to hospital and was released on Sunday afternoon. 

Hanna, who is being held without bail, was educated at an $18,000-a-year private Christian Preparatory school in Connecticut, a report suggests.

She grew up in a family home worth more than $1million, according to Zillow, before attending Gordon College - but a spokesman told the Boston Globe she left after just one semester. 

According to Facebook, she got engaged to Nathan Wolters earlier this month. But he deleted his profile after her arrest.

An ex-classmate, who wanted to remain anonymous, told the Globe: 'When I first met her I thought she was really nice, pretty sweet. She was usually very insightful when we had conversations, or in class.'

She revealed that she was transferred to The Master's when she was a junior and started babysitting while she was in Connecticut.

The classmate said Hanna  was struggling with depression and 'body image' issues, but nothing that would have predicted her alleged actions.

'I didn't expect something so severe to happen,' said the classmate. 'Especially because it seemed like after high school she had more support from others, and was doing what she wanted to do.... I was honestly just shocked. 

She had recently shared an article titled '18 Empowering Illustrations to Remind Everyone Who's Really in Charge of Women's Bodies' on her Facebook page.

Hanna also posted a link to a poem she had written, Movement, and had published on website Teen Ink. 

She was well traveled, living in London and studying in Azusa, California. 

Hanna's father, Laurie, is listed on Facebook as a teacher at Stafford Springs Elementary in Connecticut.

After her arrest, Hamilton Police Chief Russell Stevens said the evidence indicates that the abduction was not a random crime. 

He added that further details are not being released to 'protect the integrity of the ongoing investigation'.  

Sources told WHDH that the family had trusted the babysitter at one point, but had recently fired her. 

According to the Boston Herald, she only looked after Lyndon once or twice as she wasn't available enough.  

The Hamilton Police Department says Hanna has been charged with kidnapping, assault and battery by means of a dangerous weapon, assault and battery on a child, and breaking and entering

Lyndon's parents Tim and Joanie told police they last saw her at around 3am at their home in Hamilton, Massachusetts. They reported her missing at 7am. 

According to NECN, an Amber Alert was in the process of being issued before Lyndon was found.

She was shivering from the cold and sitting in a pile of leaves with a bruise on her newly shaved head when she was spotted by Tom and Marge Crosby, who were driving to their boutique in Amesbury at the time.

Tom Crosby said it was a 'vision; that compelled him to turn his car around after spotting the child in the road. 

'I don't want to say a vision but that's what it was — a vision,' he told the Boston Herald. 'I drove by and then quickly it flashed through my head. I said 'Was that a baby or was it a doll?''

They couple bundled the child into their car and gave her a blanket as they waited for police.   

'She was alert but had a big contusion on her head,' his wife Marge added to WHDH.

Lyndon was reunited with her parents at Beverly Hospital and has since been transferred to Boston Children's Hospital.

On Sunday afternoon, she was released.

On Friday, Chief Stevens could not confirm if Lyndon left the home on her own accord or if she was taken.

'We're trying to put the pieces together right now,' he said at a news conference.

'It's like a jigsaw puzzle and a bunch of the pieces are missing.' 

Police executed a search warrant at Lyndon's home on Friday and said they were treating it as a crime scene until they knew more information.  

Stevens also said there was no threat to the public. 

'If I thought parents should be concerned, I would be the first one standing if front of this microphone and your cameras telling them to be concerned,' he said. 

'So right now I would say no, you do not need to be concerned.'
