HPD helps track down Tom Brady's missing Super Bowl jersey

After an extensive investigation by New England Patriots security, Houston Police and the FBI, the man who allegedly took Brady's Super Bowl jersey has been named.

The whereabouts of quarterback Tom Brady's game jersey from February's historic Super Bowl is no longer an unsolved mystery.

Brady told reporters the morning after the Patriots' 34-28 overtime win that he had packed up the jersey bearing his number 12 after the game, but it had disappeared.

Both were found in the possession of an unnamed member of the media, said the National Football League.

Acevedo declined to offer many specifics in the case, which goes to the USA attorney's office, but said "we fully anticipate charges being brought against a suspect" and added that videos are part of the investigation. The Mexican Editorial Organization tweeted that a former executive of Diario La Prensa was involved and a statement is expected later Monday. Kraft has said he intended only to show Putin the ring but the leader kept it.

No arrests had been made.

The organization identified the suspect as worldwide newspaper director Mauricio Ortega, who has since resigned from his job.

Carbon monoxide levels taken in the hotel were 16 times the safe limit. "Carbon monoxide is odorless, colorless, tasteless". Hotel staff members called 911 after they walked by a window and saw six children unresponsive on the pool deck.

Brady has released a statement thanking investigators and saying he's happy his jerseys have been found.

Along with the jersey, worn during Brady during Super Bowl LI, authorities also recovered a second jersey worn by Brady during the Patriots' 2015 Super Bowl XLIV victory against the Seattle Seahawks, NFL officials said in a statement. "Hopefully when I get the jerseys back I can make something very positive come from this experience". Everyone from the Patriots' security staff to the Texas Rangers to the FBI were part of the investigation into the missing jersey, valued at $500,000.

"If it shows up on eBay or something, somebody let me know", Brady said after the game.

"They really need to check their protocols and their efforts, because this is at least two jerseys that we know of, and it required a response from the Houston Police Department and other partners to recover them", Acevedo said.

It wasn't the only piece of memorabilia recovered.

A helmet believed to belong to Von Miller, the Most Valuable Player at the 2016 Super Bowl won by the Denver Broncos, was also recovered, according to U.S. reports.

Houston police chief Art Acevedo proudly congratulated his team on finding the jersey, but was equally quick to say it wasn't a "top priority" in a city with violent crime.
