Slain Pennsylvania Police Officer's Baby is Born

The family of the late Officer Bradley Fox and the Plymouth Township Police Department is celebrating the birth of Bradley Michael Jr.

The baby was born this morning at 8:48. a.m., weighed in at 7 pounds 11 ounces and is 20.75 inches long, according to Chief Joseph Lawrence.

The mother, Lynsay, and baby Brad are both doing fine, as is big sister Kadence, 11 months, he said.

"It makes everyone a bit happier that baby Brad is here and everyone is doing well," said Lawrence. A couple of the officers that were close with Lynsay Fox were at the hospital for the birth, he said.

In September, Officer Bradley Fox, a former Marine, was killed in the line of duty, and his K-9 partner, Nick, was wounded when Andrew C. Thomas, a suspect in a hit-and-run, ambushed the two during a search.

Michael J. Henry, 31, of Philadelphia, pleaded guilty last week to acting as the straw purchaser for the weapons Thomas used to kill Fox.
