Former NFL Player Sergio Brown taken into custody in the murder of his mother, police say

A law enforcement source with knowledge of the matter claims that detectives have placed former NFL star Sergio Brown under arrest in connection with his mother’s death. His mother was found dead last month outside her suburban Chicago home.

The source claims that on Tuesday, American law enforcement officers in San Diego detained and deported Brown, who had traveled to Mexico. This was done in response to an arrest warrant issued by the state of Illinois. The source claims that San Diego police are transporting Brown from Southern California to the Chicago area.

According to the source, Mexican police have been aware of Brown’s whereabouts since at least September 19. Brown was deported when Illinois authorities eventually acquired an arrest warrant in connection with Brown’s mother’s death.

According to a news release from the Maywood Police Department, relatives of 73-year-old Myrtle Brown informed police that they had been unable to locate or get in touch with her or her son. As a result, authorities found her dead on September 16. About 11 miles outside Chicago, in Maywood, her body was discovered next to a creek behind her house, according to the department.

According to spokeswoman Natalia Derevyanny, the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office concluded that Myrtle Brown died from injuries sustained during an assault and that her death was a homicide.

Around the same time, Sergio Brown’s brother posted a request for assistance in finding him on social media.

“My brother Sergio is still missing,” Nick Brown shared on Instagram. “If anyone knows where he is I want him to know that I love you and please come home.”

“It’s a sad but hopeful time, and we will all get through this together,” Nick Brown shared online. “Mom always told me, ‘tough times don’t last,’ and our most recent discussion about difficult times passing is my glimmer of hope.

“Mom, thank you for being strong, caring, diligent, fancy, funny, and for saving my art. I won’t let you down.”

Before becoming an undrafted free agent in 2010 and joining the New England Patriots, 35-year-old Sergio Brown was a defensive back for Notre Dame. He was a member of the Buffalo Bills, Jacksonville Jaguars, Indianapolis Colts, and Patriots for seven seasons during his NFL career.

Family said they had no contact with Brown

Through her lawyer Christian Conway, Myrtle Brown’s family released a statement last week urging police to move through with the investigation into her death and stating that there was enough evidence to warrant an arrest.

“We implore law enforcement agencies, particularly the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office, to work diligently and thoroughly in pursuit of truth and accountability for Myrtle Jean Simmons-Brown. No family should bear the weight of uncertainty regarding the circumstances of their loved one’s passing,” the family stated.

Additionally, the family claimed that since Sergio Brown vanished, they had not spoken with him.

We are still praying for him and fighting for his swift and safe return to the United States. The statement said, let’s collaborate to make this terrible loss a force for justice and positive change.

Myrtle was a stunning, kind, and motivating person who gave everyone in her vicinity a sense of importance. The family remarked that Myrtle’s infectious grin and attitude will always be missed. Her passing has left an unexplainable vacuum in both our lives and our communities.

Neighbors commended Myrtle Brown to CNN affiliate WBBM during Sergio Brown’s hunt.

Myrtle was a remarkable woman, and her next-door neighbor Carlos Cortez told WBBM, “I hope she’s in the right place and she’s with God.” Never in a million years did I think this would happen.

Myrtle’s neighbors characterized her as well-groomed, gregarious, and fond of dancing.

Just a beautiful woman. quite extroverted and soft-spoken. Neighbor Kevin Grayer told CNN affiliate WLS that he’s constantly on the run. Simply a joyful person. Her disposition was simply amazing.

According to Grayer, she didn’t deserve it. She was too wonderful a person to pass away in that way. That’s just sad.
