UPDATE: March 13, 2023 – 12 p.m. — A Cherry Hill man charged with murder in the shooting death of a Lawnside woman “sustained a fatal injury in the presence of law enforcement” Tuesday evening, according to the Office of the New Jersey Attorney General (OAG).

Now the OAG has determined that gunshot to have been self-inflicted.

At 1:45 p.m. February 28, 29-year-old Kyle Foggy of Cherry Hill suffered a gunshot wound at the Clara Barton Service Area on the New Jersey Turnpike in the Pedricktown section of Oldmans Township, Salem County.

Foggy was pronounced dead at 10:16 p.m. at Christiana Hospital in Newark, Delaware that same evening.

Authorities had been pursuing Foggy as a suspect in the shooting death of 28-year-old Michelle Cruz, whom they found dead at an address in the 100 block of Mouldy Road in Lawnside around 4 a.m. on February 25.

Cruz was laid to rest Friday, March 3 in Berlin.

The search for her killer led investigators from the Camden County Prosecutor’s Office (CCPO) to charge Foggy in connection with the incident.

Foggy was charged with Murder, Unlawful possession of a Weapon, and Possession of a Weapon for an Unlawful Purpose.

Also present at the time of his death were New Jersey State Troopers and U.S. Marshals; their involvement in the incident has not yet been detailed.

According to the OAG, “a review of the circumstances of the shooting is being conducted by the Integrity Bureau within the Attorney General’s Office of Public Integrity and Accountability, pursuant to Attorney General Directive 2019-4.”

All persons charged with a crime are considered innocent unless and until proven guilty in a court of law. An arrest is not a conviction.
