Suspect Indicted and Arrested for 1995 Foskey Murder
James “Jamie” Edward Holden, 41, has been indicted for capital murder in the 1995 death of Theresa Darlene Foskey.
On Sept. 7, 1995, the body of Foskey, a 28-year-old Bridge City resident was found in the Sabine River in Newton County. The victim had apparently been killed at her mobile home in the Bayou Shadows Trailer Park in Bridge City.
Orange County sheriffs along with several other local agencies and the Texas Rangers Cold Case Unit, worked on the case. The investigation continued over the last 14 years. The case was presented to the Orange County District Attorneys Office for disposition in June.
The Orange County Grand Jury returned an indictment for on Holden, a Deweyville resident. An arrest warrant was signed by Judge Dennis Powell of the Orange County 163rd District Court. Orange County District Attorney John Kimbrough said Holden was arrested Thursday morning by the Texas Rangers, in Jefferson County.
“This case, it was a multi-agency effort with a lot of involvement across state lines,” said Kimbrough. “You had Louisiana, Newton County and Orange County, and because of that it never really got investigated in a consistent sort of way. But working with the Rangers and the DPS Crime Lab, which has new technologies that weren’t available before, we’re very confident this is the person who committed the crime.”
Holden was arraigned in Jefferson County and transported to Orange. Bond has been denied and Holden is currently in the county jail.
“Of course, we still have the trial coming up, but we’re very confident that justice will be served,” said Kimbrough.
