Parents arrested after 3-year-old found wandering outside naked

- Two Iredell County parents have been arrested after deputies said their 3-year-old child was found wandering around naked in Harmony Meadows Mobile Home Park on Saturday. 

Deputies said they arrived to the scene within minutes of receiving the 911 call on Saturday, March 17 and found the child inside the home of the person who called. 

As deputies were waiting for Social Services to arrive, they saw no movement in or around the parent's home. Deputies were finally able to make contact with Devon Erin Dilorenzo, 25, who said she had been asleep and did not realize her child was outside the home. David Velazquez Castillo, 27, was also asleep inside the home at the time. 

Iredell County Department of Social Services removed the child from the home for safe keeping.

Both Dilorenzo and Castillo were transported to the Iredell County Detention Center where they were each charged with one count of misdemeanor child abuse. Both were place under a $15,000 secured bond.
