Fox was shot to death during a foot chase last September while pursuing the suspect in a hit and run crash. His killer, Andrew Charles Thomas of Lower Merion, committed suicide moments later, according to timesherald.com.
Lynsay Fox, the slain officer’s widow, unveiled the plaque and broke down in quiet sobs, according to phillyburbs.com, adding that the hour-long ceremony concluded with the reading of each deceased officer’s name, the tolling of the courthouse bell and the wailing of bagpipes.
