In 2015, Tony Moreno, of Middletown, made a call saying he was going to kill himself. It’s unclear who he called, but that person then called police to say Moreno was going to jump and that they could hear a baby crying in the background. When police arrived at the Arrigoni Bridge they saw Moreno jump, but they did not see a baby with him. Moreno was pulled from the water and taken to Hartford Hospital. A few days later, 7-month-old Aaden Moreno‘s body was found in the Connecticut River in East Haddam.
