The victim had apparently been killed in her mobile home in the Bayou Shadows Trailer Park in Bridge City. Holden’s bail was denied and he remains in the Orange County jail. Laura Badeaux, Foskey’s mother, released the following statement Tuesday].
“I have waited nearly 14 years for the person responsible for stabbing and butchering my daughter, Theresa Foskey, to be apprehended.
“My family has endured significant hardship over the years waiting for this day to come.
“Holidays, birthdays and anniversaries are a nightmare and will remain so for the rest of my life. Not a day goes by that I don’t think of her.
“I can only hope no other parent will have to endure this type of pain. As a mother, I regret I wasn’t able to be there for her on the night she was murdered. Life without her is full of torment and blame.
“Theresa has two grandchildren she never had the chance to see much less to see her own daughters grow up to become young women.
“She was a happy, giving person and loved by many.
“I will not rest until I see justice served for my daughter.
“There will not be any further interviews or statements to the media until further notice.
“Thanks to everyone for their patience during this difficult time for my family.”
