LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The Medical Examiner's Office in Louisville says an autopsy performed on a 7-year-old girl confirms her death was a homicide.

The body of 7-year-old Gabriella Doolin was found in a creek in a wooded area behind Allen County High School on Saturday night, according to police.

Officials say Doolin was reported missing to Scottsville Police on Saturday at 7:40 p.m. Police say Doolin went missing from a Little League football game she had attended with her mother on the campus of Allen County High School.
