But Broward County Sheriff's officials said he had a home in Pompano Beach and traveled there several times a month.

A woman called 911 around 9 p.m. Sunday to ask sheriff's deputies to check on Del Brocco, the Broward sheriff's office said, and they found his body.

An autopsy Monday by the Broward medical examiner determined that the death was a homicide. Investigators would not release the cause of death.

Anyone with information on this case is asked to call Broward homicide Detective Tim Duggan at 954-321-4210 or call Broward Crime Stoppers, anonymously, at (954) 493-TIPS or online at

Florida has become a cesspool of illegal Haitians along with all the other criminals...especially Pompano Beach.

You would have to be crazy to live or go there.

Get off your sofa, king. 'illegal Haitians' aren't making Broward county a cesspool. According to FBI uniform crime statistics of 2008, one is more likely to be raped in Gresham, Oregon and twice as likely to be murdered in Dayton, OH and Syracuse, NY. (all cities of similar population sizes)
Facts are fun! Give 'em a try before posting silly, racist stuff.
