3rd person in Carl DeBrodie case pleads guilty

Anthony Flores

A third person facing federal charges related to the death of a developmentally-disabled Fulton man pleads guilty.

Anthony Flores entered his plea Wednesday, admitting he falsified records in the investigation of Carl DeBrodie.  Court records state Flores, at the request of his mother, Sherry Paulo, lied to police about seeing DeBrodie at a family barbeque the day before he was reported missing.  In reality, DeBrodie had been missing for months.

Flores will be sentenced at a later date but faces up to 20 years in prison.  

Paulo and her husband pleaded guilty last November to willfully failing to provide necessary medical care to DeBrodie, resulting in his death.  Paulo also pleaded guilty to health-care fraud.

DeBrodie disappeared from Second Chance Group Home in 2017.  His body was found a week later, encased in concrete in a Fulton storage unit.
