Jimenez rescued a 3-year-old girl, who like the fictional character Alice, tumbled into a deep hole.
Ocean County Prosecutor Marlene Lynch Ford said Tuesday that a preliminary investigation found “no indication of foul play or trauma” in the death of a toddler whose body was found inside a septic tank behind her home.
It’s unknown just how long the 2-year-old, who relatives identified as “J.C.”, was inside the underground septic tank. Her body was found Monday night after authorities said her parents reported her missing.
The discovery ended a roughly three-hour search by township police, an Ocean County Sheriff’s Department canine unit and a state police helicopter.
