Services scheduled for slain officer, Bradley Fox

    Services have been scheduled for Plymouth Police Officer Bradley M. Fox, who was killed in the line of duty earlier this week.

    The Delco Times reports that Fox’s funeral arrangements have been finalized in addition to two public viewings scheduled for later this week.

     

     

    “Relatives, friends, police and all first responders are invited to share in Brad’s Life Celebration,” according to his obituary. The services are scheduled for Tuesday from 5 to 9 p.m., and again from 7 to 10:30 a.m. Wednesday at Epiphany of Our Lord Church, 3050 Walton Road, in Plymouth Meeting. The funeral Mass for Officer Fox will begin at 11 a.m. at the church.

    Fox will be laid to rest in Upper Makefield, Bucks County. He leaves behind his wife, Lynsay, who is pregnant with their second child; and their daughter, Kadence.

    According to Philly.com, “Fox, a seven-year police veteran and new K-9 officer, was responding to a hit-and-run crash in Plymouth Township when he got into a confrontation with a suspect who fled the scene of a three-car pileup in a stolen SUV.”

    Fox and his partner gave chase along the Schuylkill River Trail. It was there, along the railroad tracks that officials say Andrew Charles Thomas, 44, shot Fox multiple times. He died instantly from a gunshot wound to the head. Thomas took his own life moments later.

    Thomas was a suspect in the disappearance of his fiancé in 1999. Though he was never charged in that case, NBC10 reports that he had a history of forgery, was a fugitive for seven years, and served time for other crimes.
