Ex-NFL star Sergio Brown went missing around the same time that his mother was found dead near a creek less than 100 yards from her house.
Now, the former New England Patriot has resurfaced as he posted a video to social media, blaming the FBI for her death.
Sergio Brown And Mother Go Missing
Sergio Brown’s brother, Nick, posted to his Instagram on Saturday, September 16 to let the public know that he was actively searching for his brother, 35, who played for the NFL, and mother, Myrtle Brown, 73. “Folks my mom Myrtle Brown and brother Sergio Brown are missing,” he typed. “I’m not waiting another hour. Please share! If you see them or one of them please let me or the Maywood Police Office know!!”
“Maywood Police Officers initiated a missing person report and began making attempts to locate both individuals,” police said in a news release as well.
“Her family came and knocked on the door and was looking for her because they put out a police report because she was missing for 72 hours. So, we tried to help them as much as possible,” neighbor Carlos Cortez told WBBM.
Sergio Brown’s Mom, Myrtle Brown, Found Dead
The following day, Sunday, September 17, Myrtle Brown was found dead near a creek less than 100 yards from her house. The Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office determined she had died from injuries related to an assault, and the manner of death was ruled a homicide, according to spokesperson Natalia Derevyanny.
“It’s a sad but hopeful time, and we will all get through this together. Mom always told me, ‘tough times don’t last,’ and our last conversation about tough times being temporary is my beacon of hope,” Nick wrote in his follow-up post after they discovered his mother’s death. “Mom, thank you for being strong, caring, diligent, fancy, funny, and for saving my art. I won’t let you down. My brother Sergio is still missing. If anyone knows where he is I want him to know that I love you and please come home.”
Sergio Brown Takes To Social Media To Address His Whereabouts
“Fake news, fake news,” he began to say in the video post to social media. “It has to be the FBI that came into my house on Bob Marley’s death day. With the 511 haze and gas — unwarranted. They kidnapped me twice from my home. The Maywood, Ill. Police Department… it had to be the FBI or the Maywood Police.”
“I thought my mama was on vacation. That’s f**king fake news. She’s retired. And you want to come to me? FBI had to do it, they got the power to do some sh*t like that. What the f**k is going on? That’s fake news.”
The video was actually posted to an account named “intplayerwithapassport” and not Brown’s official Instagram account.
Sources close news site The Shaderoom stated that the former football player may be located somewhere in Mexico. The outlet also stated that he may be “suffering from some mental health issues.”
