Good riddance to bad rubbish I say, but this horror story might be even worse than suspected because there is evidence that the 13-year-old girl, who had been sexually abused since she was 11, was pimped out to Robert Grey Foxx by her own mother.
The probe began last week when the 13-year-old girl darted from a couple of curious police investigators and ran for a Citico Street home.
Knoxville Police Department investigators work at a house where a body was found Tuesday at 429 Citico St. Convicted sex offender Robert G. Foxx, 74, killed himself in the house, according to police.
It ended Tuesday in the same house when police found 74-year-old convicted sex offender Robert Grey Foxx dead on his couch, a plastic bag pulled snug over his head.
Police said Foxx committed suicide.
He had been arrested Dec. 21 after an investigation revealed he started two years ago paying an 11-year-old girl for oral sex at least twice a week.
So far so good. The cretin wouldn’t change his deviant ways, was caught and finally did what he should have done decades ago. But the story gets worse. Knoxville P.D. investigator Debra Nuchols fills in the blanks as to how this elderly degenerate was able to indulge in the exploitation of a child for two years:
Nuchols said Foxx told her he met the girl through her mother. He said he was looking for a house cleaner years ago and accidentally dialed the woman in Lonsdale. Despite the accidental contact, the woman, who has three daughters, agreed to clean Foxx’s home, Nuchols said.
The woman, however, opted to discontinue the arrangement because Foxx kept trying to show her pornographic videos at his home.
“Mom said it made her feel uncomfortable so she sent her daughter over there,” Nuchols said.
For the next two years, Nuchols said, the then 11-year-old girl would catch a KAT bus in Lonsdale and go to Foxx’s house at 429 Citico St.
“She would go over to his house every Tuesday and Thursday and sometimes on Saturday, Nuchols said. “She’d get paid $10 a day.”
Each day the girl would spend about two hours at Foxx’s residence before returning home on another bus.
Nuchols said Foxx denied any improper contact with the girl. He claimed he was having an affair with the girl’s mother.
By affair I take it he meant an arrangement where he was either paying the mother directly for access to her daughter or he found a strung out gutterslut so vile she simply took a cut of the $10 Foxx was giving to the girl for sex. Either way it’s hard to fathom that the mother was unaware of what would happen to her daughter at the old pervert’s house. Here’s hoping she does the right thing too.
Interesting side note. At the Knoxnews story there is a photo of Foxx playing chess at a mall. They give the backstory of the 2007 photo that shows that Foxx was known to be cruising for victims a couple of years ago. Here’s how the caption reads:
Robert Foxx congratulates a young opponent after a chess match Aug. 9, 2007, at West Town Mall. Foxx had regularly set up a chess board in the food court of West Town Mall to play youngsters. That practice ended in 2007 after the News Sentinel featured him in a picture playing a match with a boy at the mall, and police alerted mall security that Foxx was a registered sex offender.
But we shouldn’t be worried about sex offender recidivism?
