    Authorities in Mexico have released photos of one of Tom Brady's recovered Super Bowl jerseys after it vanished from the New England Patriots' locker room in Houston after the game in February.

    The photos were released Tuesday by the Mexico's Agencia de Investigación Criminal, a division of Procuraduría General de la República to NBC News.

    Meanwhile, the Mexican media organization whose former employee has been identified as a suspect in the felony theft has reportedly apologized.

    NBC Sports' ProFootballTalk reports OEM, the largest newspaper company in the country, said they were unaware Martin Maurico Ortega Camberos, who resigned from the newspaper La Prensa earlier this month, had been a suspect in the ongoing investigation.

    Ortega has not been formally charged.
