Who stole Tom Brady's jersey? Video of reported suspect Mauricio Ortega emerges
Here's the visual evidence of what went on in the Patriots locker room
The Tom Brady jersey investigation is over, from a perspective of the -- which we didnât really know had been stolen until it was actually recovered.
We also know the suspect is from Mexico, as the jersey was recovered there. Additionally, according to the Associated Press, the suspect in question is also a former executive from tabloid Diario La Prensa.
Ian Rapoport of NFL Network pegs the suspectâs name as Mauricio Ortega.
And Fox Sports 1, via Jay Glazer, has now played video of the suspect in question while he was entering and leaving the Patriots locker room.
Here is a screenshot of the suspect in question, shown entering and leaving the locker room. As heâs exiting, heâs got an extra bag that, presumably, has the Brady jersey inside.
Whatâs wild is that the suspect can be seen walking in directly behind Patriots player Nate Ebner.
But then heâs seen leaving while Patriots players are still going into the locker room. In other words, he managed to get in and out with the jersey before all of the Patriots even made it to the locker room after the victory.
Thatâs pretty freaking efficient.

On Tuesday, Fox Sports 1 released a longer video with the suspectâs face no longer blurred. You can watch that here.
Multiple reports from Mexican journalists have pegged Ortega as the guy who was in possession of the jersey.
And it would appear this is a photo of Ortega from one of his editorial posts.
Thereâs somehow more to this story than anyone ever imagined. We all justor just misplaced. But the where the alleged culprit was repeatedly snagging items from the Super Bowl-winning team.
