DOVER, Del. – An autopsy has found that a Maryland girl abducted from her home last week died of multiple injuries.
According to the chief medical examiner's office in Maryland, the death of 11-year-old Sarah Haley Foxwell is listed as a homicide. The office did not specify her injuries.
Foxwell was taken last Tuesday from the Salisbury home where she lived with her aunt. Her body was found Christmas Day after a search that involved thousands of volunteers.
Thomas J. Leggs Jr., who has convictions for sex offenses in Maryland and Delaware, faces a preliminary hearing Jan. 21 on charges of kidnapping and burglary in Sarah's disappearance.
Authorities have said Leggs will face additional charges.
