Police discovered Myrtle Brown’s corpse, and on Sunday, a medical examiner concluded that she had been assaulted. Records acquired by local media indicate that her death was considered a murder.
Reports show that defensive back Sergio Brown played for the Colts, Jaguars, Patriots, and Bills between 2010 and 2016. Brown played football at Notre Dame after graduating High School.
Sergio Brown’s brother posted an appeal for his whereabouts on social media.
Carlos Cortez, Myrtle Brown’s next-door neighbor, told local news that he last saw Myrtle and Sergio together on Thursday.
