Patriots star Brady’s missing Super Bowl jersey found in Mexico
The New England Patriots jersey that vanished after quarterback Tom Brady wore it in the team’s fifth Super Bowl victory last month has been found in Mexico, officials said on Monday.
The jersey and a second one Brady wore in a championship victory two years earlier were taken by a former Mexican media executive who had been credentialed to cover the February game in Houston, according to the National Football League and law enforcement officials.
Mexican authorities found the missing jersey at the home of Martin Mauricio Ortega, a former director of Mexico’s La Prensa newspaper, in a raid following a Federal Bureau of Investigation request, a government source told Reuters.
Ortega has not been arrested because he has not yet been charged, the source added, but the investigation is ongoing.
