Cassandra Day of "The Middletown Press" reports as follows:
MIDDLETOWN >> People from throughout the nation deeply affected by the tragic death of a 7-month-old who perished when his father threw him into a river have rallied to raise funds and change the laws regarding no-contact orders.
The father, Tony Moreno, 21, of Middletown was charged with felony murder and murder with special conditions in connection with Aaden’s death this week after police said he jumped off the Arrigoni Bridge into the murky Connecticut River late Sunday evening.
According to court documents, he texted the baby’s mother, Adrianne Oyola, multiple times after he said Aaden was dead — and before he leapt over the railing.
The baby’s body was found in the river Tuesday night near the East Haddam Swing Bridge — eight-tenths of a miles away — after a massive two-day search.
