Law enforcement authorities in Maywood, Illinois, are continuing their investigation into the homicide case of 73-year-old Myrtle Brown. Her body was discovered battered and bruised in a creek behind her suburban Chicago home nearly three weeks ago. The death has been ruled a homicide, but no arrests have been made thus far.
Meanwhile, Sergio Brown, the 35-year-old son of Myrtle Brown, who was initially reported missing at the same time as his mother, has resurfaced in Tulum, Mexico. Sergio has been active on social media, posting tweets and videos while the Maywood Police continue their investigation into his mother’s death. Previously, he had posted videos from Mexico City, where he accused the FBI and Maywood police of kidnapping him and claimed his mother’s death was “fake news,” asserting that she is on vacation elsewhere in Mexico.
Recent footage shows Sergio Brown partying with vacationers in Tulum, where he was seen buying drinks for fellow revelers before disappearing again. Additionally, a neighbor of Myrtle Brown, Carlos Cortez, claims to have provided police with his Ring doorbell video, which allegedly shows Sergio burning clothes and disposing of them. Cortez stated that Sergio was seen taking out the trash and later having a bonfire where he burned all of his mother’s clothes.
Sergio’s brother, Nick Brown, has also made statements on Instagram regarding their mother. Deadspin reached out to both the Maywood Police and Carlos Cortez for updates on the investigation but has not received a response from either party at the time of publication. The investigation into Myrtle Brown’s homicide remains ongoing.
