A former NFL player is missing and his mother is dead as police in Illinois launched an investigation over the weekend into the mysterious circumstances.

Family members of Sergio Brown and his mother, Myrtle, contacted authorities on Saturday to say they couldn’t find or make contact with either person, Maywood police said. A missing persons search was started and 73-year-old Myrtle Brown was found dead in a creek near her home, according to FOX 59.

Authorities were investigating Myrtle Brown’s death as a homicide.

According to Fox News, the sister of Myrtle Brown, Sheila Simmons, informed WGN-TV that her most recent conversation with Myrtle occurred on September 14. Additionally, she mentioned that Myrtle had recently celebrated her birthday on September 8. Sheila Simmons received a phone call at approximately 3 a.m. local time, notifying her that both her sister and nephew were unaccounted for.

Simmons told the station:

“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.”
