The story made national headlines in the wake of the game, but there hasn’t been an update on the case for about a month now.

“Many agencies” is a little hard to believe, considering that local law enforcement in Houston didn’t seem particularly concerned with the theft. It’s hard to imagine which agencies might be involved beyond the respective security teams for the NFL and the Patriots, both of which have limited legal powers with which to conduct an investigation.
Perhaps the jersey will surface one day, but chances are we’ll never find out who has Brady’s historic attire.
