Former NFL player taken into custody in connection with his mother’s death, source says

Former NFL player Sergio Brown, whose mother was discovered dead last month near her suburban Chicago home, has been arrested in connection with the death, according to a law enforcement source familiar with the investigation.

According to the source, Brown was deported from Mexico and taken into custody by US law enforcement officers near San Diego on Tuesday, based on an arrest warrant issued in Illinois. According to the source, police in San Diego are working to transfer Brown from Southern California to the Chicago area.

Mexican authorities have been aware of Brown’s whereabouts since at least September 19, according to the source, and deported him after Illinois authorities finally obtained an arrest warrant in connection with Brown’s mother’s death.

The body of 73-year-old Myrtle Brown was discovered last month after relatives alerted police that they couldn’t find or contact her or her son, according to a news release from the Maywood Police Department.

According to Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office spokesperson Natalia Derevyanny, Myrtle Brown died from injuries sustained in an assault, and her death was ruled a homicide.

Sergio Brown, 35, played for Notre Dame before signing as an undrafted free agent with the New England Patriots in 2010. He was a member of the Patriots, Indianapolis Colts, Jacksonville Jaguars, and Buffalo Bills during his seven-year NFL career.
