Deputy Fox was shot and killed during a traffic stop on Highway 50, one mile east of Delta. The 37-year-old victim had stopped a vehicle and was approaching when fired upon with a high-powered rifle. At least one of the rounds passed through her body armor and inflicted a fatal wound. The suspect fled the area. Following a statewide hunt by law enforcement, the suspect was found hiding in a shed in Beaver County. He is currently incarcerated and awaiting trial on charges that include first-degree murder. Deputy Fox was married and the mother of two children. Her bronze memorial plaque is sponsored by the Millard County Sheriff’s Office and Millard County Peace Officers Association.
