This investigation into this case began when the decomposing remains of a toddler were discovered in an alleyway on the 800 block of Mount Ephraim Avenue in Camden on October 11, 2018, after the Camden County Police Department received a report from a passerby of suspected human remains.

On December 6, 2018, the toddler’s father walked into the Bellmawr Police Station and reported his son missing after not seeing him for several months.

Investigation revealed that the toddler was last seen on August 20, 2018 in Bellmawr.

Neither parent reported the child missing before December 6, 2018.

As a result of this report, the toddler’s parents were identified and authorities were able to conduct DNA testing to confirm the identity of the child found in the alleyway.

On January 9, 2019, the Gloucester/Camden/Salem Medical Examiner determined the cause of the baby’s death to be Homicidal Violence of Undetermined Etiology and ruled the manner of his death a homicide.

In August, 2019, a Camden County Grand Jury indicted Brown for murder.

Brown’s sentencing is scheduled for February 18, 2022.
