Former NFL Player Missing, Mother Found Dead in Illinois

Authorities in the Chicago suburb of Maywood, Illinois, are currently investigating the mysterious disappearance of former NFL player Sergio Brown, 35, and the tragic death of his mother, Myrtle Brown, 73. The police have yet to identify any suspects in the case.

Myrtle Brown’s life was tragically cut short, her death being treated as a homicide by local law enforcement. The circumstances surrounding her death remain unclear, and her son, Sergio, is currently unaccounted for. Sergio Brown, a former defensive back, had a professional football career spanning from 2010 to 2016, playing for teams such as the New England Patriots, Indianapolis Colts, Jacksonville Jaguars, and the Buffalo Bills.

Myrtle Brown’s sister, Sheila Simmons, revealed that she last communicated with her sister on Thursday. Myrtle had recently celebrated her 73rd birthday on September 8. However, a distressing call received by Simmons on Saturday around 3 a.m. reported that both Myrtle and Sergio were missing.

Simmons immediately went to the Maywood residence where her sister and nephew lived. Upon arrival, she noticed several unusual circumstances around the house. Despite an initial search of the property and the creek behind the house yielding no results, a subsequent search led to the grim discovery of Myrtle’s body.

Simmons expressed her determination to uncover the truth behind her sister’s death and her nephew’s disappearance. She noted that it was highly unusual for her sister not to answer her phone or respond to text messages. She added that several people had been trying to reach Myrtle since Friday, but to no avail. The shocking news of her sister’s death and her nephew’s disappearance has left Simmons and the rest of the family in a state of shock and despair.

As the investigation continues, the community is left grappling with the tragic loss and the mysterious circumstances surrounding the case. The whereabouts of Sergio Brown remain unknown, adding another layer of complexity to an already puzzling case.
