WILL COUNTY, Ill. — After the body of a missing Illinois toddler was found last Thursday, authorities have released photos of the decrepit home where she was pronounced dead.
The Joliet Township house where 16-month-old Semaj Crosby was found dead has since been condemned. Police said the residence was in a “deplorable condition,” with between five and 15 people – described as squatters – living on and off at the residence.
In the kitchen, food in foil pans and pizza boxes were piled on a table. The back door and electrical panel were blocked by trash bags, strollers and containers.
