On September 26, 2020, around 3:24 p.m. video captures to women stop at the memorial site along the Schuylkill River Trail honoring fallen Plymouth Township Officer Brad Fox, who was killed in the line of duty in 2012.
Plymouth Twp Police are searching for two women seen here on surveillance taking a flag from the Brad Fox Memorial and throwing it into the brush nearby. Fox was tragically killed after responding to a hit and run of Ridge Pike in 2012. @6abc pic.twitter.com/HW2SjaLbby— Christie Ileto (@Christie_Ileto) September 29, 2020
In the video, you can see one of the two women desecrate the memorial by throwing a flag into the weeds nearby before taking off.
Brad, a former Marine who served two tours of duty in Iraq, was killed on September 13, 2012 while pursuing a suspect involved in a hit-and-run. He was shot and later died at the hospital.
Brad's parents are trying to make sense of the vandalism.
"That flag didn't just represent Brad, that represents all police officers who protect all of us every day," said Brad's mother, Kathy Fox.
It's not clear if the same women are behind the anti-police graffiti written on the memorial benches, but the Fox family says this will not take away from the money they've raised in their son's name to help their community.
"I hope they get caught, maybe they'll realize what this means to a lot of people and not just my family, but all of these officers," Kathy said.
Anyone with any information on the two women is asked to call the Plymouth Township Police Department at 610-279-1901.
