Hours after solving the mysterious disappearance of Tom Brady’s Super Bowl Jersey, they found Mauricio Ortega guilty of the crime. Shortly after, a Mexican newspaper, La Prensa, announced an apology from Ortega.
Ortega was previously a director at La Prensa until he resigned last week. He allegedly stole Tom Brady’s LI and XLIX Super Bowl jerseys, and even Von Miller’s Super Bowl 50 helmet.
Public Apology From La Prensa On Behalf Of Mauricio Ortega
La Prensa sent out a statement Monday on Ortega’s behalf. The report explains that they are extremely disappointed in his behavior. He also took advantage of his professional position with their company to access the field and stadium. La Prensa will be working with officials with any legal responses they may need. Regardless, these actions could have occurred while he was still their newspaper director. They closed with an apology from the paper and Ortega himself for his regrettable and selfish acts.
Tom Brady also sent out a statement thanking authorities for all of their hard work on the case. He says he’s glad to have his jerseys back and he appreciates all of the work put in to recover them.
Ironically, Brady and Ortega took a picture together in 2005!
