Memorial fund to aid dead Md. girl's siblings

A spokesman for the family of an 11-year-old Salisbury girl who was found dead on Christmas Day says donations to the memorial fund established in her memory will be used for the girl's siblings.

Rev. Bill Warren of Allen Memorial Baptist Church says funds from the Sarah Haley Foxwell Memorial Fund will be used to establish a trust fund, and Foxwell's six siblings will be the only benefactors.

Warren did not know how the money would be used, but says he knows there's a need for counseling. He says an attorney has been contacted about administering the fund but no agreement is in place.

Thirty-year-old Thomas Leggs Jr. is charged with kidnapping and burglary in Foxwell's disappearance, but he has not been charged in her death. His attorney says Leggs denies any involvement in the crime.
