Police Call Death of Joliet Toddler 'Suspicious'

Will County Sheriff's Department Deputy Chief Rick Ackerson said during a news conference Thursday, April 27 Crosby was found dead Wednesday night at her family's residence. "To have everybody out here searching when [someone] knew she was in the house".

Ackerson said the mother still has the two other children but that they are no longer staying at her Joliet home.

Ackerson choked up when asked how hard it is to investigate the death of a child so young. The rest apparently were squatters.

The Will County Sheriff's Office "temporarily suspended" its search for a missing toddler in Joliet Township Wednesday night, the sheriff's office said in a news release. "They might be there overnight".

"The house was in very deplorable conditions", Ackerson said, without elaborating.

Sheri Gordon, the mother of missing toddler Semaj Crosby, is now under investigation for an allegation of neglect, the Department of Child and Family Services confirmed. "The entire community has been deeply concerned about the safety of Semaj".

Spokeswoman Veronica Resa said DCFS personnel had been at the home shortly before the girl went missing.

DCFS declined further comment after Semaj was found dead.

Hundreds of police and volunteers searched for Semaj since her disappearance was reported late Tuesday. The intense search for 16-month-old Semaj Crosby started Tuesday afternoon, when her mother told deputies the baby had wandered away from the front yard.

"Tuesday. was a nice day outside and there were many children playing outside, please talk to your children and ask them if they may have seen or heard anything", the sheriff's office said.

"She was right there one minute and gone the next", Ackerson said. The search was suspended late Wednesday. Even before that, a woman who claimed to be a relative was interrupting the interview, trying to convince Semaj's mother to stop talking to police.

According to WGNTV, Crosby was found in the same home that she lived in with Gordon.

Ackerson called Semaj's death suspicious, but not necessarily a homicide. He said it would be up to DCFS to determine custody issues.

"I honestly feel the whole thing was a big waste of time". Since then, deputies have been going door-to-door asking if anyone has seen a trace of the toddler.

Will County sheriff's deputies walk Wednesday along Richards Street during a search for a missing Preston Heights child in Joliet Township.

"I don't think she's around here because we looked everywhere", Alexander said.

"We need to bring her home", Ackerson said.
