Sergio Brown, Ex-NFL Safety, Missing In Illinois, Mother Found Dead At Her Home
Police in Illinois are hoping to find former NFL safety Sergio Brown alive and well after Brown and his mother were reported missing earlier this weekend. Unfortunately, the hopes of law enforcement were dampened after they recovered the body of Brown's mother, Myrtle, from a creek near her home. Furthermore, police have confirmed that they are treating the death as a homicide. The county medical examiner ruled that she "suffered multiple injuries during an assault". However, other details about her death are yet to be determined by law enforcement. Myrtle's sister told local media that she last spoke to her on September 14.
Brown went undrafted out of Notre Dame in 2010 but was signed as a free agent by the Patriots. He played 94 games in his career, primarily as a backup. As well as the Patriots, he spent time with the Colts, Jags, and Bills. He retired after the 2016 season. He finished his career with 144 tackles.
