JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. – A Missouri county’s share of a settlement with the family of a developmentally disabled man whose body was found encased in concrete is $2 million.

The Jefferson City News-Tribune reports that Callaway County says its insurer will pay out the money to the mother and estate of Carl DeBrodie. DeBrodie’s body was found in a storage unit in April 2017, about a week after he was reported missing from Second Chance Homes in Fulton. Investigators believe his disappearance from the supported living home wasn’t reported for months. The suit alleged a lack of oversight.

The structured settlement was reached earlier this month, although details weren’t disclosed at the time. DeBrodie’s mother’s attorney, Rudy Veit, says the $2 million doesn’t include settlement money from Second Chance or any of its employees.
