Florida Man Arrested in 2010 Death of Alexandria Man

Three years after an Alexandria man was found dead in his Pompano Beach, Fla., home, detectives arrested a suspect.

John Snavely, 26, of Miami is charged in the 2010 stabbing death of 60-year-old Samuel Del Brocco, according to the Broward Sheriff's Office.

Del Brocco, president and CEO of communications and strategy company PCI Communications headquartered in D.C., took frequent trips to his residence in Pompano Beach, where deputies found his body Sept. 12, 2010, after a friend called 911 with concerns because she had not heard from him, authorities said. Del Brocco suffered multiple stab wounds.

Del Brocco had just moved into a Fairfax County home and was making extensive additions to it, so his concerned friend didn't think he'd disappear on his own, News4's Derrick Ward reported.

The Broward Sheriff's Office learned Del Brocco met Snavely at a bar and took him home with him.

Snavely was charged with second-degree murder. He is currently in jail on violation of probation charges.
