- The body of his mother Myrtle Brown, 73, was found in Addison Creek, Illinois, late on Saturday, with the cause of death being ruled as a homicide
- He was last seen with his late mom on August 25 as they left their home to go to a family reunion in Mississippi that they never showed up to
Former NFL star Sergio Brown has shared an Instagram video where he claims he though his murdered mom was on vacation.
Brown, 35, had been reported missing after his mom Myrtle Brown, 73, was found murdered and left in a creek in Illinois over the weekend.
Following the discovery of Brown’s body, which was found near her home on Saturday, police said they couldn’t find or make contact with her son.
In a turn of events, Brown has now turned up on Instagram sharing a bizarre video claiming that he believe his mother to be on holiday.
In the clip, in which he tagged EuroJournal, Brown says: ‘Fake news. It has to be the FBI, they came into my house…unwarranted.
‘They kidnapped me twice from home, the Maywood Police Department. It had to be the FBI or the Maywood Police. I thought my momma was on vacation.’
Finishing off the incoherent ramble, Brown adds: ‘That’s f***ing fake news. Get the f*** out my god damn face.
‘FBI had to do it, they got the power to do some s**t . What the f**k is going on, that is fake news. Don’t come f***ing with me.’
Brown had shared the video to a secondary Instagram account and not his verified profile.
DailyMail.com has been unable to verify that the account in question belongs to Brown, who has not been named as a suspect, according to the Independent.
In the video, Brown appears to be in a hot climate, wearing a vest and seemingly seated under a straw hatched roof, while listening to Spanish music.
What appears to be papel picado, traditional Mexican decorative banners, can be seen strung from the ceiling above him.
He was last seen with his mom on August 25 as they left their home to go to a family reunion in Mississippi that they never showed up to.
After an examination of the body on Sunday, the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office ruled her death a homicide after concluding she suffered assault-related injuries.
Myrtle Brown’s sister, Sheila Simmons, told WGN the last time she spoke to her sister was on Thursday, September 14.
It wasn’t until around 3am Saturday morning that Simmons received the call her sister and nephew were missing.
Simmons soon showed up at the house the two shared together and felt that things were ‘out of the ordinary’.
She told WGN: ‘We’re going to find out what happened because it’s not normal for my sister to not answer her phone, not to respond to text messages.
‘People have been reaching out to her since Friday. No one was able to reach her.
‘Now, I got the call this morning saying that she’s missing, so immediately I came out here and find out my sister is dead.’
Simmons reportedly scoured the creek behind the house with police when she initially arrived, but didn’t find anything.
It wasn’t until later when her and other family members went back to search, they found Myrtle’s dead body in the Addison Creek Reservoir outside of Chicago.
Nick Brown, one of Myrtle Brown’s sons and Sergio Brown’s brother, described his mom as strong, caring, diligent, fancy and funny in a Facebook post.
He said: ‘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.
‘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 played for the University of Notre Dame before he moved on and perused his career in the NFL. He signed as undrafted free agent with the New England Patriots as a safety in 2010.
As he parted ways with the team in 2012, he then moved on and played for the Indianapolis Colts, Atlanta Falcons, Jacksonville Jaguars and the Buffalo Bills.
Social-media users have shared Sergio’s missing person poster in an effort trying to find him.
