Missing Chicago girl, 1, found dead in "squatter" home

After a massive search for 1 year old Semaj Crosby, the focus Wednesday night turned to a home on Louis Road in Joliet Township.

Jason Elledge says it is believed the toddler wandered off, and "possibly went into hiding and fell asleep".

Ackerson said Semaj's body was found after the mother's lawyer gave the sheriff's office consent for the house to be searched Wednesday night.

According to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, she was last seen on April 25 at around 4 p.m.in the front yard of her home in Joliet Township.

In a statement, the office said further study is needed to determine why Semaj (sa-MAH-jay) Crosby was found dead early Thursday. "We have to find out why [this ended] in such a tragic way".

"They went inside and spoke to the mom and grandmother and found that everything was fine, however, a few of the kids were sad because they would not be going to their relative's house for Easter".

The school called off afternoon preschool, but morning classes continued.

The mother has retained an attorney who Ackerson says has not allowed her to speak further. Adrian Smith, a neighbor who helped search for the child, said he thought something was suspicious.

"We need to bring her home", Ackerson said.
