Matthew Fox, a 19-year old from Lincoln is being held in the murder of his mother, Sherry Fox. Her body was found Saturday night inside her home near 25th and E Street.
It was her son who reportedly confessed to the crime. "He was like I think you need to call the cops, and I was like why, and he's all cause I think I did something bad," says neighbor Uriel Castendal. A frantic Fox knocked on Castendal's door asking him to call 911. He thought it was a prank. Then, Fox came back again, this time Castendal's friend opened the door. "He's like I got blood spatter on me and he opened up his coat a little bit then he lifted up his thing and he was like I got blood splatter on my ankle," says Travon Street.
Neigbhors eventually called 911 and Fox was arrested. He is being held on first degree murder charges. According to police, he has no criminal history.
Neighbors describe him as being drunk or on drugs when he approached them.
Police believe Sherry Fox was killed by blunt force trauma. An autopsy is scheduled for Tuesday.
