David Profitt, a 25-year-old man from Bowling Green, Kentucky, was apprehended by federal and state law enforcement officers at a Topgolf location in Indiana over the weekend. Profitt is suspected of murdering 22-year-old Alexandra Hemmann, whose body was discovered in an apartment. Those acquainted with Hemmann have indicated that she was a victim of domestic violence.
The Fishers Police Department in Indiana issued a warrant for Profitt’s arrest. The Bowling Green Police Department subsequently reached out to the FBI Violent Crimes Task Force from the FBI’s Indianapolis Field Office, suspecting that Profitt had fled to the Indianapolis area. The FBI VCTF initiated a search for Profitt, who was eventually located at the Topgolf in Fishers. The Fishers SWAT team was called in to assist and successfully apprehended Profitt without any incidents.
Following Profitt’s arrest, Detectives David Grimsley and Kyle Scharlow from the Bowling Green Police Department provided an update on the case. According to Grimsley, officers had responded to a welfare check at an apartment in Bowling Green where they discovered Hemmann’s body. Profitt was quickly identified as the primary suspect and was arrested later that evening in Fishers, Indiana.
Grimsley also stated that Profitt will be transported to the Warren County Jail in Kentucky in the coming days to face charges of murder and theft by unlawful taking. He added that additional charges may be brought against Profitt as the case is presented to the grand jury. Hamilton County Jail records in Indiana confirm that Profitt was booked on Saturday evening and is being held for extradition.
A Facebook account believed to belong to Profitt, but using a slightly different spelling of his last name, posted a photo of him with Hemmann on May 29. The account’s intro reads, “Living life to its fullest. I’m happy all the time lol.”
Hemmann’s coworkers have expressed their grief over her death, remembering her as a “sweet” and “hardworking” individual. They have also used this tragic event to raise awareness about domestic violence, urging those who may be experiencing it to seek help.
