Slain Pa. officer's canine may go to his family
NORRISTOWN, Pa. - October 11, 2012 (WPVI) -- The canine partner of a suburban Philadelphia police officer who was fatally shot while pursuing a suspect may be reunited with the officer's family.
Plymouth Township Officer Bradley Fox was shot after an attempted traffic stop last month. His canine partner, Nick, was wounded but is recovering. Authorities say the suspect killed himself.
Montgomery County District Attorney Risa Vetri Ferman now says she hopes to reunite the dog with Fox's pregnant wife, Lynsay, and their young daughter. Nick, a Belgian Malinois, was purchased by the county using Homeland Security funds and then provided to the Plymouth Township Police Department.
Now, Ferman says officials are reviewing paperwork to see if they can cut through the "red tape" and reunite the dog with the Fox family.
