Arcadia Police Department
Arcadia, Florida
During the late hours of December 21, 2022, our road patrol unit responded to the area of Alabama Ave in reference to a murder.

46-year-old Dewayne Brady was found stabbed to death inside a house at the corner of S Alabama Ave and W Bond. Police report it took hours before anyone found Brady’s body, and they’re unsure of any motive yet.

“I don’t want to make this about what happened to him. I don’t want to give them, the ones that did this, that kind of power,” Thelma Brady-Simmons said, Dewayne’s sister.

On December 22, 2022, probable cause was developed for David Felton, and he was taken into custody. Felton has been charged with one count of First Degree Murder, and one count of Attempted First Degree Murder.
