Description

Tom Fogleman was a quiet, meticulous, and generous man who managed his family's country store right off a small highway in Alamance County, North Carolina. He ran the kind of store where you could buy most anything with an IOU, that's just the way he did business. So who would brutally attack him hitting him more than 27 times in the head leaving him for dead on the floor of his store? It's a mystery nearly 20 years old. It's one of many cold cases, but this one is about to heat up as detectives put new eyes on the January 2002 murder.

The people of Snow Camp and Alamance County, NC, knew the Fogleman family well. The customers and neighbors of the family's country store also knew of their firstborn, Tom, having watched him grow up from boy to man.

On January 23, 2002, 61-year-old Tom Fogleman was brutally murdered in the country store his father built in 1940, in Snow Camp, NC. News of the killing rocked the Alamance County community and sparked heavy coverage of the murder within several news organizations. Over the next several years, numerous detectives worked the case, but failed to solve it. In February 2021, the Alamance County Sheriff's Office sent out another press release, continuing to ask for the public's help in the case, shortly after it was assigned to a new detective, who had never previously heard of the murder. In this episode of A Country Store Killing, we look back at the day Tom was killed and become acquainted with some of Tom's closest remaining family members.
