‘You’re not a parent anymore… he’s dead’: The chilling text messages suicidal father sent to his ex-girlfriend in the final moments before he ‘threw their baby son off a bridge’

A series of chilling text messages that a suicidal father sent to his increasingly panicked ex-girlfriend in the final moments before he allegedly threw their baby son to his death off a bridge has emerged. As he stood on Connecticut’s Arrigoni Bridge with his seven-month-old son Aaden on Sunday night, Tony Moreno, 22, exchanged dozens of texts with his former partner, 19-year-old Adrianne Oyola. In separate messages, he told her: ‘Enjoy your new life without us’, ‘There is no more days [sic]’ and ‘You’re not a parent anymore’ – prompting Oyola to frantically ask about her son’s whereabouts. Moreno then wrote: ‘He’s dead’, followed by ‘And soon I will be too.’ Shortly after, the father apparently leaped from the 90ft bridge himself – having already hurled Aaden into the water below.

A series of chilling text messages that a suicidal father sent to his increasingly panicked ex-girlfriend in the final moments before he allegedly threw their baby son to his death off a bridge has emerged.
As he stood on Connecticut’s Arrigoni Bridge with his seven-month-old son Aaden on Sunday night, Tony Moreno, 22, exchanged dozens of texts with his former partner, 19-year-old Adrianne Oyola.
In separate messages, he told her: ‘Enjoy your new life without us’, ‘There is no more days [sic]’ and ‘You’re not a parent anymore’ – prompting Oyola to frantically ask about her son’s whereabouts.
Moreno then wrote: ‘He’s dead’, followed by ‘And soon I will be too.’ Shortly after, the father apparently leaped from the 90ft bridge himself – having already hurled Aaden into the water below.

Tragic: Moreno told Oyola via text ‘Enjoy your new life without us’, ‘There is no more days [sic]’ and ‘You’re not a parent anymore’ before he reportedly threw Aaden, pictured, off the bridge and then plunged in himself

As Moreno fell silent, Oyola typed out a string of emotional messages to her ex-boyfriend, writing: ‘Don’t f****** talk like that,’ ‘You couldn’t kill your own son!’ and ‘Please don’t hurt Aaden… Please!!!’

Later that night, she was told by police that her child had likely died after Moreno’s mother allegedly received a call from Moreno saying he was going to jump off the bridge, and called 911.
When officials arrived at the scene, they saw Moreno leap over the railing and plunge into the water below, it is reported. Aaden was nowhere to be seen, but his empty stroller was sat on the bridge.
Moreno was rescued from the water and rushed to hospital in a serious condition. Although he initially refused to speak to police in hospital, he eventually confessed to the crime, CBS reported.

Aaden’s body was recovered from Connecticut River about 15 miles away from the bridge

An officer apparently used a basketball analogy when speaking to Moreno to establish how far he had thrown his son from the bridge’s railing, and subsequently help crews to find Aaden’s body.
‘Tony said that it was more like a free throw distance from the railing,’ the officer reported.
On Tuesday evening, Aaden’s body was recovered from the Connecticut River, near East Haddam, around 15 miles from the bridge.
Moreno, who is currently in an alert and stable condition at Hartford Hospital, has been charged with Aaden’s murder. He is being held at the hospital on $2million bond, officials said.
The shocking text messages that he exchanged with Oyola, who lives in Middletown, Connecticut, in the minutes leading up to the alleged murder were published by Fox CT on Thursday.
At one point in the exchange, Oyola told Moreno: ‘Good night I’ll talk to you tomorrow or Tuesday.’

Her ex-boyfriend bluntly replied: ‘No you won’t.’
At another point, Moreno told Oyola he had tried to speak to her but she hadn’t listened. ‘Just remember you wanted to play games and lie and be childish when I tried to reach out,’ he wrote.
In response, his ex-girlfriend told him she had really tried to ‘make this co-parent thing work’.
It comes as it has emerged that Middletown Police Department officers applied for an arrest warrant for Moreno on June 25 over an alleged violation of a restraining order – but had it sent back.

They were told to make revisions, Lt. Heather Desmond told CBS.
The warrant was finally signed this week – but Aaden was already dead.
Oyola, who lived with Moreno and his family until June 17, reportedly told police officers that she and her ex-boyfriend had not been getting along in the months leading up to Sunday’s incident.
