Connecticut police said on Tuesday they had found the body of a 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.
He was expected to face criminal charges, police said.
Moreno's family called police on Monday to report that Moreno was threatening to commit suicide and that he had the baby with him, police said.
Two officers arrived in time to see Moreno jump off the 120-foot bridge but did not see the baby. The father was rescued and airlifted to Hartford Hospital, police said.
Court records made available Tuesday show that Moreno had recently been accused of threatening the child and the child's mother, Adrianne Oyola.
Oyola said in a June restraining order application that Moreno had struck her and told her that he could make the baby "disappear."

Stunning how the parents so often seem to survive these murder-suicide attempts. This douchebag doesn't deserve the life he has been blessed with.
it's just incomprehensible story's like these. So many thought's come to mind and they just become a blur and you're left at a loss to say anything. I'm thankful every day that my babies were safe in this world.
