Police Find Missing Toddler’s Death Suspicious

A toddler who was reported missing was found dead in her Joliet home early Thursday. Sheri Gordon reported her 16-month-old daughter, Semaj Crosby, missing on Tuesday after the girl wandered off while playing outside. During a second search of the girl’s home, police found her dead. Last month, the Department of Children and Family Services opened two investigations into the mother for allegations of neglect. DCFS visited the home just hours before the child was reported missing.
