Md. stadium to be memorial for abducted girl
Law enforcement officials in Salisbury say the entrance to the Arthur W. Perdue Stadium is serving as a temporary memorial for 11-year-old Sarah Haley Foxwell.
Police say the public can leave mementos at the stadium starting Tuesday. They ask that items not be left at the spot where the girl's body was found.
Foxwell was taken last Tuesday from the Salisbury home where she lived with her aunt. Her body was found Christmas Day after a search that involved thousands of volunteers.
Thomas J. Leggs Jr., who has convictions for sex offenses in Maryland and Delaware, faces a preliminary hearing Jan. 21 on charges of kidnapping and burglary in Foxwell's disappearance, but he has not been charged in her death.
Wicomico County Sheriff Mike Lewis says Leggs will face additional charges but did not elaborate.
An autopsy has found that a Maryland girl abducted from her home last week died of multiple injuries. According to the chief medical examiner's office in Maryland, Foxwell's death s listed as a homicide.
