Sergio Brown doesn’t appear to be in a somber state.
The former NFL player, Sergio Brown, was sighted in Tulum on Sunday, where he was enthusiastically dancing and enjoying himself, despite an ongoing police inquiry into the tragic death of his mother.
Sporting red Nike swim trunks, Brown seemed carefree as he danced shirtless among fellow clubgoers at a popular establishment in the Mexican city.
According to a witness who spoke to TMZ Sports, the former Indianapolis Colts defensive back spent several hours at the venue, engaging in conversations with people and even buying drinks for others before eventually departing.
The situation raises eyebrows, given that authorities in Maywood, Illinois, have been searching for Brown since his mother, 73-year-old Myrtle Brown, was discovered deceased near a creek on September 16. Both Sergio and his mother had been reported missing just hours before the grim discovery.
Officials later determined Myrtle’s demise to be a result of homicide, citing injuries consistent with an assault. No details about potential suspects have been disclosed by law enforcement.
There had been speculation that the 35-year-old former football player had left Illinois and traveled to Mexico, fueled by an Instagram account purportedly belonging to him, which posted a video of him in the country discussing “fake news.”
The current status of the investigation into Myrtle’s death remains unclear. We made multiple attempts to contact the Maywood Police Department on Monday but have yet to receive a response.
Sergio Brown, who played college football at Notre Dame, had an NFL career from 2010 to 2016, during which he spent time with the Patriots, Colts, Jaguars, and Bills. He concluded his career with 15 starts and one interception.
