SAN DIEGO, CA.–Former Indianapolis Colts player Sergio Brown is in police custody regarding his mother’s death.

Investigators found 73-year-old Myrtle Brown dead near a creek behind her Chicago-area home last month. Sergio Brown was traveling in Mexico when he was deported and taken into custody by US police near San Diego.

Mexican law enforcement leaders say they knew of Brown’s whereabouts a few days after his mother’s death.

Medical examiners determined she died from injuries related to assault and it was ruled a homicide.
