Sex offender charged in kidnapping of missing girl, 11
By Deborah Gates
December 24, 2009

SALISBURY, Md. – The Wicomico County (Md.) Sheriff's Office has charged a 30-year-old Salisbury man in the disappearance of an 11-year-old girl who is still missing.

Delaware State Police have joined Maryland authorities and volunteers in the search for 11-year-old Sarah Haley Foxwell.

Sheriff Mike Lewis announced Wednesday night that family acquaintance Thomas James Leggs of Salisbury, a registered sex offender, has been charged with kidnapping and burglary.

Dive teams searched a local pond Wednesday night and law enforcement agencies from across the region are continuing the search today, helping the sheriff's office search for Foxwell in several square miles of dense woods

Foxwell was last seen in Christmas-themed pajamas inside her Old Ocean City Road residence about 9:30 p.m. the day before, and by Wednesday evening her disappearance had been re-classified from a "missing person" investigation to a "non-family abduction," said Lt. Babe Wilson of the Wicomico County Sheriff's Office.

Several dozen police officers were joined by volunteers from as far as the western shore and northern Delaware, who searched in freezing nighttime temperatures Wednesday as authorities questioned Leggs at the Sheriff's Office.

Earlier Wednesday, the search focused on a radius about three miles in either direction of the girl's residence, Wilson said.

A police command center was established about noon Wednesday at a church on Zion Road at Zion Church Road, a location that is central to the residences of both the girl and Leggs, Lewis had said.

Details about Leggs' conviction for a sex crime were not immediately available, Lewis said.

A national Amber Alert about the 4-foot 8-inch tall Foxwell also was issued.

By early evening, scores of both law enforcement personnel, local Good Samaritans and professional volunteers from outside the area had either joined the search or were on standby to help. Police helicopters from both Maryland and Delaware state police agencies joined, as did the Maryland Natural Resources Police Search and Rescue, Salisbury Police Department, Worcester Sheriff's Office and Delmarva and East Coast K-9 search and rescue units.

"Everybody is offering," Wilson said outside the command center. "(Police) officers from Fruitland, Delmar, Ocean City have contacted us."

Police ask anyone with information about Foxwell's disappearance to contact the Sheriff's Office at 410-548-4891.

Md Police Seek Missing 11-year-old
Sex Offender Charged in Disappearance of Sarah Haley Foxwell

SALISBURY, Md., Dec. 24, 2009

AP) Police in Maryland were searching Christmas Eve for a missing 11-year-old girl last seen wearing fuzzy Christmas pajamas, and they have charged a registered child sex offender in her disappearance.

Thomas J. Leggs Jr. of Salisbury, 30, is charged with burglary and with kidnapping Sarah H. Foxwell, according to court documents.

Wicomico County Sheriff Mike Lewis said Sarah was last seen Tuesday night at her home on Maryland's Eastern Shore. A relative discovered she was missing early Wednesday while checking on Sarah and her 6-year-old sister.

"She wasn't in her room," Lewis said. He said there was no evidence of forced entry to the home where the girls live with their aunt, who is their legal guardian.

Dive teams searched a local pond Wednesday night, and scores of police officers from across the region scoured several square miles of dense woods on Christmas Eve. They brought in helicopters and dogs to aid their search.

Police also released a photograph of a 2003 Dodge Ram 1500 pickup used by Leggs and they asked anyone who may have seen the champagne/tan-colored vehicle to contact authorities.

Sarah is white, 4-foot-8 and weighs 78 pounds. She has brown hair and blue eyes. When she disappeared, she was wearing red fuzzy pajama bottoms with Christmas trees on them and a pink John Deere T-shirt.

"I will tell you this: We have not given up hope and we will continue to search all day today and throughout the night," Lewis said. "We won't go home until we find this little girl."

Leggs, a former boyfriend of the aunt, seen left, is being held at the Wicomico County Detention Center without bail, Lewis said. He is being represented by the public defender's office, which did not immediately return a call seeking comment.

Leggs is listed on the Maryland and Delaware sex offender registries. The Maryland listing notes that he is a child sex offender, but does not give details about his conviction.

Lewis said Leggs has been convicted of sex offense in Wicomico County and was charged Oct. 29 with fourth-degree burglary.

"He was developed as a suspect early on in the investigation before we were aware of his criminal background, but he does have a criminal history to include third- and fourth-degree sex offenses of small young females," Lewis said.

In 2001, Leggs was convicted in Delaware of rape for having sex with a victim who was 16 or 17, according to the Delaware registry. The registry describes his risk level as "high" and notes he is unemployed.

Leggs, who has been convicted of assault several times, also is awaiting trial on charges of burglary and destruction of property in Ocean City.

Wicomico authorities search overnight for missing 11-year-old

By Deborah Gates
Staff Writer

SALISBURY — Wicomico County authorities say a 30-year-old registered sex offender living in the county has been charged with the abduction of an 11-year-old girl reported missing Wednesday morning.

Thomas James Leggs of Bennett Road was charged Wednesday night with kidnapping and first-degree burglary. Wicomico County Sheriff Mike Lewis made the announcement at 11 p.m. Wednesday outside a command center established at a church east of Salisbury on Zion Road at the Zion Church Road intersection.

Authorities have not located the abducted child, Sarah Haley Foxwell of Old Ocean City Road just outside Salisbury, Lewis said, adding that scores of law enforcement and volunteer searchers from around Maryland and elsewhere are continuing to comb areas with hopes of finding her.

The Wicomico Bureau of Investigation is leading the search.

Sarah was reported missing about 10 a.m. Wednesday by a family member. She was last seen about 9:30 p.m. Tuesday, and her disappearance was discovered early Wednesday when a family member went to check on her and her 6-year-old sister, Lewis said. He also said there was no evidence of forced entry into the residence.

"She wasn't in her room," he said.

Sarah and her sister live with an aunt who is their legal guardian, the sheriff also said. Leggs is not a relative, although the sheriff said the suspect is "familiar with the family."

Lewis also said that Leggs is a registered sex offender in both Wicomico County and the state of Delaware.

Meanwhile, organized groups led by law enforcement officials continue to search for Sarah, and Lewis urged residents to not organize their own search party.

"Please refrain from conducting your own search," he said. "We cannot have anyone on their own out searching for the little girl. We are going to be out here all night long, and all day tomorrow, we will continue to look for this little girl.

"We have faith; we have not lost hope," Lewis said.

Sarah is 4 feet, 8 inches tall and has brown hair often worn in a ponytail. Police say she was last seen wearing red, fuzzy pajama bottoms with Christmas trees on them, and a pink John Deere T-Shirt.

Police ask anyone with information about her disappearance to contact the Sheriff's Office at 410-548-4891 410-548-4891.

Police in Maryland were searching Christmas Eve for a missing 11-year-old girl last seen wearing fuzzy Christmas pajamas, and they have charged a registered child sex offender in her disappearance.

Thomas J. Leggs Jr. of Salisbury, 30, is charged with burglary and with kidnapping Sarah H. Foxwell, according to court documents.

A charging document says Leggs was the last person seen with Sarah.

Wicomico County Sheriff Mike Lewis said Sarah was last seen Tuesday night at her home on Maryland's Eastern Shore. A relative discovered she was missing early Wednesday while checking on Sarah and her 6-year-old sister.

"She wasn't in her room," Lewis said. He said there was no evidence of forced entry to the home where the girls live with their aunt, who is their legal guardian. Leggs is a former boyfriend of the aunt, officials said.

A "juvenile witness" awoke during the night Tuesday and saw Sarah leave the bedroom with "Tommy," and said he was wearing blue jeans, an orange jacket and white sneakers, the charging document says.

The statement of probable cause also says Sarah's aunt, Amy Fothergill, with whom Sarah lives, noticed that Sarah's green toothbrush was missing from the home. Deputies found a green toothbrush and a lollipop in a truck Leggs admitted driving. Leggs said he had been wearing jeans and white sneakers the previous night — the same clothes he was wearing when police questioned him.

The sheriff said Leggs has been uncooperative and "of no assistance to our investigators."

Lewis said Thursday night police were still in search and rescue mode, and he said searches would continue throughout the night. "We have not lost hope," he said.

The sheriff said the department is encouraging hunters familiar with their hunting areas to start their own searches beginning at 7 a.m. on Christmas Day.

Dive teams searched a local pond Wednesday night, and scores of police officers from across the region scoured several square miles of dense woods on Christmas Eve. They brought in helicopters and dogs to aid their search.

Police also released a photograph of a 2003 Dodge Ram 1500 pickup used by Leggs and they asked anyone who may have seen the champagne/tan-colored vehicle to contact authorities.

Sarah is white, 4-foot-8 and weighs 78 pounds. She has brown hair and blue eyes. When she disappeared, she was wearing red fuzzy pajama bottoms with Christmas trees on them and a pink John Deere T-shirt.



(AP)Leggs is being held at the Wicomico County Detention Center without bail, Lewis said. He is being represented by the public defender's office, which did not immediately return a call seeking comment. A woman who answered the door at Leggs' parents' house declined to speak to a reporter.

Leggs is listed on the Maryland and Delaware sex offender registries. The Maryland listing notes that he is a child sex offender, but does not give details about his conviction.

Lewis said Leggs has been convicted of sex offense in Wicomico County and was charged Oct. 29 with fourth-degree burglary.

"He was developed as a suspect early on in the investigation before we were aware of his criminal background, but he does have a criminal history to include third- and fourth-degree sex offenses of small young females," Lewis said.

In 2001, Leggs was convicted in Delaware of rape for having sex with a victim who was 16 or 17, according to the Delaware registry. The registry describes his risk level as "high" and notes he is unemployed.

Leggs, who has been convicted of assault several times, also is awaiting trial on charges of burglary and destruction of property in Ocean City.

Sheriff: Body of missing Maryland girl found
The Associated Press
Posted: 12/25/2009 09:00:15 AM PST
Updated: 12/25/2009 03:35:16 PM PST

SALISBURY, Md.—The body of a Maryland girl who authorities say was abducted by a registered sex offender was found Friday after thousands of volunteers fanned out to look for her.
Wicomico County Sheriff Mike Lewis said that the body of 11-year-old Sarah H. Foxwell was discovered at about 4 p.m. near the Delaware state line. He offered few other details. Thomas J. Leggs Jr., 30, has been charged in her kidnapping.

Leggs is a former boyfriend of the girl's aunt, who is her legal guardian. A public defender representing him has not returned a phone call.

Thousands of volunteers gathered in Salisbury to help in the search Friday.

Lewis said Sarah was last seen Tuesday night at her home on Maryland's Eastern Shore. A relative discovered she was missing early Wednesday while checking on Sarah and her 6-year-old sister. A charging document says Leggs was the last person seen with Sarah.

A "juvenile witness" awoke during the night Tuesday and saw Sarah leave the bedroom with "Tommy," and said he was wearing blue jeans, an orange jacket and white sneakers, the charging document says.

The statement of probable cause also says Sarah's aunt, Amy Fothergill, with whom Sarah lives, noticed that Sarah's green toothbrush was missing from the home.

Sarah Haley Foxwell's
remains were located on the north side of Melson Road in Delmar near Hampton Court on Christmas Day. Wicomico County Sheriff Mike Lewis declined to give further details on the cause of her death during a news conference Friday, stating the investigation is ongoing.

Foxwell, a Wicomico Middle School sixth-grader, was abducted from her Old Ocean City Road home Dec. 22. When police found her three days later, the little girl's body had been severely burned, according to sources close to investigation who could not be named because the investigation is continuing.

http://www.delmarvanow.com/article/20091227/NEWS01/912270302/DNA--autopsy-results-awaited--girl-s-body-was-severely-burned

The victim and the witness knew Leggs
-- the former boyfriend of Foxwell's aunt, Amy Fothergill, according to court documents. Fothergill, told police she dated Leggs for a short period about a month or so ago until he stopped contacting her. Fothergill told police Leggs was a registered sex offender, according to charging documents, but it is unclear if she knew this information while she was dating him.

Jerry Norton, who heads Citizens for Jessica's Law in Maryland, a group that has fought for years to fortify laws against pedophiles, was angrily calling lawmakers Saturday, underscoring his position.

"My heart goes out to the friends and family of this 11-year-old child," he told The Sun in Baltimore. "We need to make it clear to citizens of Maryland that we are not going to let these pedophiles molest our children with just a slap on the wrist. We're tired of these watered-down sentences -- they come out and do it again."

More Charges to be Filed Against Suspect Charged in Child's Abduction

SALISBURY, Md.- Wicomico County Sheriff Mike Lewis said Monday that additional charges will be forthcoming against a registered sex offender charged in the disappearance of an 11-year-old girl whose body was found by police on Christmas day.

In related news, earlier Monday, a judge ordered Leggs to continue to be held without bond at the Wicomico County Detention Center pending further legal action. A preliminary hearing for Leggs is scheduled for Jan. 21.

A 30-year-old Salisbury man charged in the disappearance of a missing girl found dead was also charged with breaking into a female victim's house in December.

She told police Leggs was standing near her bed with his shirt off and his pants down to his knees when she woke up, according to charging documents.

http://www.delmarvanow.com/article/20091228/NEWS01/91228021

They expect to charge Leggs with the murder of this poor girl in the next month or so. They have been working extensively at the crime scene and local news is telling us they are waiting on DNA and other forensic tests to be done. He is not getting bail, so he won't be going anywhere and he has trial on other charges in Jan. Great guy isn't he.

There is certainly a good chance they will go for the death penalty. My own opinion, given the news coverage and the outrage in the community, is that defense will ask for a change of venue for this trial. That is strictly an opinion on my part I've seen no one to date mention it. Last time we had a horrific crime in my area there was a change of venue. In fact it was later an episode of American Justice.

Man Denies Harming Kidnapped Girl posted 12/30/09 8:49 am

SALISBURY, Md. - An attorney for a 30-year-old Salisbury man charged in the disappearance of a girl found dead on Christmas Day says his client denies allegations that he harmed the child.

Thomas Leggs Jr., a registered sex offender in Maryland and Delaware, was charged with kidnapping and burglary one day after 11-year-old Sarah Haley Foxwell's family reported her missing. She was found dead in a wooded area days later.

Arch McFadden, an attorney from the Office of the Public Defender, represented Leggs during a Wicomico County District Court bond hearing. He says Leggs "has denied and continues to deny any involvement in this crime."

1,600 attend memorial for slain Wicomico girl

By Arthur Hirsch
Sunday, January 3, 2010

SALISBURY -- Friends, family and law enforcement officials came in from the cold Saturday morning to share their grief, disbelief and recollections of 11-year-old Sarah Haley Foxwell, whose body was found in a wooded patch of northern Wicomico County on Christmas Day.

As about 1,600 people filed into Emmanuel Wesleyan Church, two projection screens flanking the broad, carpeted stage showed pictures taken of the blond, blue-eyed Sarah "Haleybugs" from the time she was an infant: in a highchair, on the beach, drifting on a lime green inner tube, blowing a giant pink gum bubble.

Jordyn Knierem, 11, who went to school with Sarah at Wicomico Middle School, said she and her friend were "inseparable. We could spend 24 hours together and not get bored. I see this as impossible. It proves you're not promised tomorrow."

Sarah's mother, Jennifer Foxwell, cried as she read a poem that compared the child to a budding flower taken away at the threshold of opening. "I'll miss you, baby, and I love you, Haleybugs," her mother said.

Sarah was buried in a private family ceremony in Salisbury earlier in the week. She disappeared from her home Dec. 22, setting off a search that included 3,000 volunteers. Her body was found late on Christmas. Wicomico County Sheriff Michael A. Lewis described her death as a homicide. He said Saturday that she died of "multiple causes."

Thomas J. Leggs Jr., 30, has been charged with burglary and kidnapping in the girl's disappearance and is being held without bond at the Wicomico County jail. His attorney said last week that his client denies any involvement in the crime.

A trail of charges for sex offenses, little jail time


A history of legal breaks for Leggs, not his victims


February 14, 2010|By Julie Scharper | julie.scharper@baltsun.com






Four days before the birth of the Salisbury girl he would be accused of kidnapping from her bedroom and killing, Thomas J. Leggs Jr. pleaded guilty to his first sex offense.
Over the next 11 years, as Sarah Haley Foxwell grew into a bright, lively middle school student, Leggs was charged with five other crimes against girls and young women, including raping a teenager on a Delaware boardwalk and grabbing a 13-year-old the same day his newborn child was brought home from the hospital.
Despite convictions for a sex offense and the rape of a minor as well as multiple parole violations, Leggs, 30, has eluded serious jail time. The Baltimore Sun reviewed court records for all of Leggs' criminal cases and spoke with several witnesses and past accusers to gain insight into the man charged with the death of the cheerful sixth-grade student whose body was found in a frozen field on Christmas Day.

Thomas Leggs Jr Denies Killing Sarah Haley Foxwell


Thomas Leggs Jr, who is registered as a sex offender in Maryland, was charged with kidnapping and burglary the day after Sarah Haley Foxwell was reported missing.
The body of Sarah Haley Foxwell was found in the woods on Christmas Day. The search for the child was one of the largest in U.S. history.
“[He] has denied and continues to deny any involvement in this crime,” said Leggs’ public defender.
The 30 year old Leggs is currently locked up without bond. He is being held apart from other inmates, due to the sensitive nature of the allegations.
