The foster father of a two-year-old girl killed earlier this year has been arrested by the Corcoran Police Department.
Henry Moreno had lived in Corcoran for many years, but was arrested in the 5000 block of E. Hedges Ave. in Fresno. He has been charged with assault/death of a child under eight years old; and homicide.
Police responded to a local home in the 1500 block of Claire Ave. in February of this year, for a report of an injured child. The little girl died soon after and an autopsy determined that the cause of death was not natural.
Moreno was suspected of the crime from the beginning.
Following the girl’s death at Children’s Hospital Central California, the investigation into the suspicious death continued and police called in medical experts to provide more concrete information.
Although Moreno has been arrested, the local department and the Kings County District Attorney’s office are continuing the investigation. Anyone with any information is encouraged to call Det. John Harris at 992-5151.
