David Profitt: A Kentucky man in his mid-20s was apprehended and taken into custody by the state and federal authorities over the weekend at a Topgolf in Indiana after a woman was found dead in an apartment. David Profitt, 23, a resident of the Bowling Green area, faces charges related to the murder of Alexandra Hemmann, 22.
Hemmann’s close ones and acquaintances claimed after the suspect’s arrest that she was a victim of domestic violence. A warrant for Profitt’s arrest was issued and Bowling Green Police Department “contacted the FBI Violent Crimes Task Force from the FBI’s Indianapolis Field Office after they suspected” him of escaping to Indianapolis during the weekend.
Who is David Profitt?
The detectives said that Profitt was “quickly” identified as the suspect in the case. He was arrested outside of Fishers, Indiana, on Saturday evening, August 12.
“Task Force Officers with the FBI VCTF began searching for Profitt who was eventually located at Top Golf in Fishers,” cops said of the arrest. “Additionally, Fishers SWAT was requested to respond and ultimately apprehended Profitt without incident.”
Detectives David Grimsley and Kyle Scharlow of the Bowling Green Police Department appeared to give an update on the reported facts of the case following Profitt’s arrest. Grimsley said that cops responded Saturday to 1043 Winners Circle, apartment C, in Bowling Green to perform a welfare check.
He added that officers made their way to the apartment and found Hemmann dead of an apparent homicide inside the residence. “In the coming days, Profitt will be transported to the Warren County Jail” in Kentucky to face charges of murder and theft by unlawful taking, Grimsley said. “We expect additional charges as we present the case to the grand jury.”
According to Hamilton County Jail, Profitt was booked Saturday at 7.58 pm and held for extradition.
