AUSTIN, Texas (PRESS RELEASE) – The Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) has added Herman Henry Fox, 35, to the Texas 10 Most Wanted Fugitives list, and a cash reward of up to $5,000 is now being offered for information leading to his capture. Fox is wanted for trafficking of persons and compelling prostitution by force/threat. All tips are guaranteed to be anonymous.
Fox has been wanted since July 2017 and has ties to Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and Ascension Parish, Louisiana, including the cities of Donaldsonville and Gonzales. He may also frequent the Houston area and his last known address was in College Station. In August 2016, after being arrested on a drug charge near a hotel in College Station, authorities suspected Fox was engaging in human trafficking by forcing a woman into prostitution. Warrants were later issued by Brazos County for trafficking and compelling prostitution. His criminal history includes assault, robbery, dangerous drugs and weapons offenses.
Fox is 6 feet tall and weighs approximately 205 pounds. He has numerous tattoos on his chest, abdomen, both arms, both hands and the right side of the neck. Fox may also be known by the nickname of “Fat.” For more information or updates in the event of his arrest, see his wanted bulletin at: http://www.dps.texas.gov/texas10mostwanted/MostWanted/fugitiveDetails?id=380.
