SCOTTSVILLE, Ky. (WKRN) – The son of a Kentucky man accused of raping and murdering 7-year-old Gabbi Doolin in November appeared in court Wednesday morning.
While waiting for the hearing to begin, Bradley Madden appeared agitated and kept mouthing the words “get me out” to family members in attendance. He later gave them a thumbs up.
During his Wednesday court appearance, the 20-year-old was appointed a public defender and a judge entered a not guilty plea on his behalf.
Madden is charged with 16 counts of terroristic threatening in the third-degree and 16 counts of intimidating a participant in the legal process.
According to an affidavit, he sent private messages to the Scottsville Police Department via Facebook on Nov. 21.
He allegedly wrote, “U got the wrong m,an u sick f*** ur have to be missing so ething try harder please don’t give up if u book my dad in and he does life u will do life wachi g ur back,” and “Go do ur god dam jobs correctly b**** u know who I talkimg [sic] about it is a set up from hell when he gets our best believe u will be sued for slander his privacy right and false arrest and yall will go to hell for this.”
On Nov. 23 he also allegedly sent another message that said, “I coming for you.”
Later that same day, Madden reportedly said, “Scottsville look out im [sic] coming [sic] for everyone whoa [sic] has said my name and my fams and my dads so ill [sic] meet u there.”
According to investigators, Madden was warned that he would be arrested if he did not stop sending threatening messages to the police department, but he continued.
Kentucky State Police told News 2 Madden is not being investigated in connection to his father’s murder case.
Madden is due back in court next Wednesday at 11 a.m. for a preliminary hearing.
