1429 N. Federal Avenue, Mason City, Cerro Gordo County, Iowa
April 30, 1992
Dillon LUNA, the 15-day-old son of Joseph and Christine LUNA, was found dead of smoke inhalation on April 30, 1992, as his parents’ 1429 N. Federal Ave., Mason City home burned to the ground.
According to the fire marshal's investigation, the fire was caused by arson and was ignited in the living room — the same room where the infant's body was found. Police found it strange that although five other people lived in the home, no one remembered the baby was inside until after they were all out of the house.
Dillon James LUNA was born April 15, 1992, and died April 30, 1992. He was interred at Memorial Park Cemetery, Mason City, Iowa.
Dillon's murder remains unsolved to this day.
