Possible Von Miller helmet recovered by National Football League as part of ongoing investigation

Ortega had press credentials that granted him access to the Patriots locker room, and-stunningly-the search for the jersey (conducted as a joint operation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Patriots' security team, the Houston Police Department, and the NFL) turned up not just Brady's Super Bowl 51 jersey, but also his Super Bowl 49 jersey, and a Denver Broncos helmet that may have belonged to a player in that team's victorious appearance in Super Bowl 50.

In a twist worthy of a crime movie, the Super Bowl LI jersey was not the only piece of memorabilia recovered by authorities on Monday. The Broncos defeated the Carolina Panthers in Super Bowl 50 at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California, in February 2016, and the helmet of Broncos outside linebacker Von Miller, who was named Super Bowl MVP, went missing. The authorities believe it may have been Brady's jersey.

That's where Chief Art Acevedo says not one, but two of Tom Brady's Super Bowl jerseys were recovered.

According to ESPN, authorities used footage from Fox, which showed Ortega entering the locker room and, with his back to the camera, reaching into Brady's bag and putting the jersey into a black plastic bag before leaving. "As it is an ongoing investigation, we will refer all additional questions and inquiries to the National Football League".

The Houston Police Department held a press conference on Monday afternoon and spoke about the investigation into the jersey theft. The U.S. Attorney for Texas' Southern District is preparing to bring charges, Acevedo said, but he would not elaborate on the suspect or the location of the recovery.

"We know that there are many agencies working on it and I think we are all hopefully optimistic that it will get resolved soon", Patriots spokesman Stacey James told Florio via email.

New England have won five of the past 17 Super Bowls, with Brady under centre every time.

At last, the biggest mystery of Super Bowl LI (apart from why the Atlanta Falcons stopped running the ball) has been solved and in this instance it may be safe to blame the media.

The search is over for Tom Brady's missing Super Bowl jersey, and it would seem that it was stolen by the former director of a newspaper in Mexico.
