Deputies took him into custody early this morning, he had a knife on him

During questioning, he admitted to the murder of Ahlittia North and confirmed many details in the case

The investigation will continue, as there are still several loose ends

When detectives asked Matthew Flugence’s brother, Russell, about his brother’s involvement, his response was “I don’t give a f*** about that little girl”

When deputies asked Matthew Flugence if he killed Ahlittia North, he replied, “And I f***ed your mother too”

This investigation continues, so many details will not be released right now

JPSO’s object is to have most presentable case for the District Attorney

Thank you to the public for your assistance

Because investigators are still working on this case, if there’s any more information anyone can provide about the Flugence brothers, please contact JPSO
