A 3-year-old Camden County boy was found dead a few hours after being reported missing this morning in the Westmont section of Haddon Township. The boy was reported missing from the 100 block of Cooper Street around 6 a.m. by a family member. His body was discovered by K-9 units around 9 a.m. a few blocks from home in wooded area on South Park Drive near the Cooper River. He has been identified as Brendan Link Creato. Authorities used reverse 911 to call area residents and notify them of the missing boy and word spread on social media before he was discovered. Brendan was staying at his father's house last night. He was dropped off by his grandparents last night. His parents share custody and his mother lives nearby. Police have not said if foul play was involved. Autopsy results are pending. Anyone with information is urged to contact Camden County Prosecutor's Office Detective Michael Rhoads at (856) 225-8561 or Haddon Township Police Detective Don Quinn at (856) 833-6208.

UPDATE: Wed. 10/14/15 Noon. The Camden County Prosecutor's Office has performed an autopsy, but they cannot determine a cause of death for Brendan Creato. Police have been questioning many people including the boy's father. A candle light vigil was held last night in Westmont. The investigation continues.

UPDATE: 3:15 pm. Listen to the 911 audio.



Samantha Denoto, the mother of Brendan, has released a statement tonight:

We are heartbroken by the loss of our beautiful boy Brendan Creato. Along with the Creato family, who also lost a son and grandson, we are grieving and tremendously saddened.

We thank the community, which searched this morning for Brendan and gathered tonight in his memory. We appreciate your efforts and kind words.

We do not have any answers about what occurred.

We do not intend to make any further statements. We do not plan to speak to the media. We request that we be provided with privacy during this very difficult time.


18-year-old Rashan Roberts was sentenced today to 11 ½ - 23 months in prison with 5 years probation for the hit-and-run accident this past spring that has left a Temple University student in extensive rehab. It happened at the intersection of Park Ave. and Diamond Street around 7pm on April 29th. Roberts was driving his father's 2012 silver Mitsubishi when he hit 22-year-old Rachel Hall while riding her bike. Roberts, 17 at the time, only had a learner's permit and did not have a licensed driver in the car. He fled the scene leaving Hall on the ground with severe head and leg injuries. She has spent the past months recovering with breathing assistance while remaining in a coma. Days away from graduation ceremonies, Hall still graduated cum laude with a major in criminal justice and was the goal keeper for the lacrosse team. Roberts turned himself into Police the day after the incident and pled guilty to charges of leaving the scene of an accident with a serious injury.

Springfield High School in Delaware County was briefly evacuated after a student's e-cigarette malfunctioned and caused a minor explosion. It happened around 12:20 p.m. Springfield Township officials say that the device came into contact with loose change in the student's pocket which caused the battery to overheat and smoke. Police and fire were called to the scene. They determined it was an accident and there were no other threats at the school. The student suffered minor burns to his hip and hand. No one else was injured.
