Sergio Brown, 35, and his 73-year-old mother, Myrtle Brown, were first reported missing on Saturday in Illinois.

Sergio’s mother’s deceased body was reportedly found near a creek behind her Maywood, Illinois home shortly after a search was launched for the missing pair.

The Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office ruled Myrtle Brown’s death a homicide on Sunday, and an autopsy found that the 73-year-old died from “multiple injuries tied to an assault.”

Sheila Simmons, Myrtle Brown’s sister, told WGN-TV that she last spoke to the deceased on Thursday and that she did not learn that her nephew and sister were missing until Saturday afternoon.

“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,” Simmons told the outlet. “People have been reaching out to her since Friday.”

Sergio’s mother’s deceased body was found near a creek behind her Maywood, Illinois home shortly after a search was launched.

“No one was able to reach her,” she continued. “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.”

Also concerning was Simmons’ claim that she visited her nephew and sister’s home in Maywood early Saturday morning and found that “things around the house” were “out of the ordinary.”
