Police find baby's body in river after father attempts suicide

Connecticut police said yesterday that they had found the body of the 7-month-old boy they believe may have been tossed into a river by his father, who had tried to kill himself at the same time.

Middletown police responded to a report of a body found in the river near East Haddam, Connecticut, around 8 p.m., the department said in a statement. Detectives and Connecticut State Police confirmed the body was that of Aaden Moreno, who had been missing since early Monday.


 Police believe the baby's father, Tony Moreno, 22, was holding the child, or had flung him into the water, as he attempted suicide early Monday by jumping off the Arrigoni Bridge in Middletown. Moreno was in critical condition on Tuesday, officials said.

Moreno is expected to face charges.
