After a 7-month-old boy was thrown to his death last month, local officials have been considering safety improvements for a 90-foot-high span over the Connecticut River that has been known for decades as a destination for suicidal people.
A vigil for Aaden Moreno was held at South Congregational Church in Middletown.
Investigators today said a father has admitted he threw his infant son off the Arrigoni Bridge.
Middletown Police say a woman’s body was pulled from the Connecticut River after a search in the area of the Arrigoni Bridge today.
Plans are in the works, to spruce up the Arrigoni Bridge.
The Arrigoni Bridge over the Connecticut River between Middletown and Portland will be reduced from four lanes to two for about 18 months starting June 28, as crews replace the deck of the bridge, which dates to 1938.
