HERNANDO COUNTY, Fla - Concern for the well-being of Kimberly Losurdo's children was brewing months before two of her children ate crack cocaine.
A female neighbor, who asked not to be identified, told ABC Action News she called the Department of Children and Families months ago to report Losurdo. The call was placed after the woman witnessed Losurdo's children out late at night on multiple occasions.
"Middle of the afternoon, late at night in their jammies riding up and down on a school night as late as ten or twelve at night," the neighbor explained.
The neighbor noted seeing DCF workers coming and going from the home but grew upset the children weren't removed until after the kids tested positive for cocaine this week.
"There is nothing anyone can say about this. It is horrific," she added.
On Thursday, Hernando County deputies reported that a 9-year-old tested positive after being hospitalized with severe symptoms.
