He was killed the day before his 35th birthday. 

At about 5:16 p.m., officers from the Plymouth Township Police Department were investigating a three-car accident in the Conshohocken section of Plymouth Township. While conducting traffic control at the accident scene, officers observed a SUV traveling at a high rate of speed, passing stopped traffic in the opposing lane of traffic. Officer Bradley Fox and backup began to follow the SUV, which then struck another vehicle and fled the scene.   Officer Fox followed the path of the striking vehicle and found it abandoned on a nearby road. Officer Fox and his K-9 partner, Nick, began a foot pursuit and radioed for backup. Officer Fox and his K9 partner pursued the suspect into an industrial area alongside the Schuylkill River Trail. 

Michael, Archangel, Patron
Saint of the Police, pray for Brad
Responding officers located Officer Fox on the grass between the Schuylkill River trail and the train tracks above the trail. It was apparent he had suffered a gunshot wound to the head and they called for emergency medical backup. With the assistance of multiple police agencies and K-9 search teams, the killer was located. He had committed suicide.

Brad is a former United States Marine and had served two tours of duty in Iraq.

Police Department officials stated that Brad Fox is a hero.

Brad is survived by many loving friends and relatives including his expectant wife and their young daughter.

Pray for all who die in the line of duty. Pray for all who die young and violently. 

Let us pray that Brad Fox is in heaven. Let us pray that he is at peace and is with God. Amen.
