Another twist in this case: Tracey Broughman was also arrested for violence against the elderly woman. Police reports indicate she was arrested and charged with battery following a fight with the 69-year-old earlier this year. Those charges were dropped.
Dylan’s paternal grandmother, Evelyn Stepka, said Tracey Broughman’s criminal history, which includes drug use and prostitution, is the reason for the teen’s current situation.
“When you have a crackhead mother coming and going, being arrested every month -- how do they expect this kid to grow up normal,” she said.
Tracey Broughman has been arrested more than 20 times in Duval County.
