(NEWSER) – The body of 7-month-old Aaden Moreno was found Tuesday night in the Connecticut River, and 21-year-old Tony Moreno, his father, has been charged in his murder after confessing to tossing him off a bridge, the AP reports. Before jumping into the water himself, Moreno made what he thought was a final phone call to his own mother, then sent a series of chilling text messages to the baby's 19-year-old mother, Adrianne Oyola, per the Hartford Courant.
According to court records, Denise Moreno says she got a call from her son late Sunday asking her to come to the Arrigoni Bridge. She could hear Aaden crying in the background as her son said, "Just tell everyone I'm sorry." She called 911 and got to the bridge right before police did and just in time to see Tony jump, with an empty baby stroller nearby.
