Amid the investigation, a local resident claimed he last saw the Browns in person on September 14, helping out police by providing video footage from his Ring doorbell camera.

Sheila Simmons, Mrytle's sister, told Chicago news outlet WGN9, that she had last spoken with her sibling that same day.

Before her sister's tragic fate was discovered, Simmons said, "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."

Authorities had been trying to locate Sergio for questioning after his mother's mysterious death. In a since-deleted video, Sergio said he thought his mother was "on vacation," and that "it had to be the FBI or Maywood PD," not clarifying what exactly he meant by "it."
