“Sister Wives” Star’s Tragic Death Preceded by Disturbing Texts

Garrison Brown, a 25-year-old star of the reality TV show “Sister Wives,” sent a series of concerning text messages prior to his untimely death on Tuesday, according to a police report. His mother, Janelle Brown, 54, was alerted to the situation and asked Garrison’s brother, Gabe, to check on him.

The police report, which was obtained by TMZ, revealed that Garrison had sent a text to a group of people associated with the Brown family, presumably those involved with their reality show on TLC. The text read, “I want to hate you for sharing the good times. But I can’t. I miss these days.” Janelle was not part of the group text but was informed about it, prompting her to reach out to Garrison directly.

Janelle and Garrison exchanged messages for a short while before Garrison stopped responding. Janelle also told the police that Garrison had been estranged from his father, Kody Brown, 55, who is known for his polygamous lifestyle.

Garrison and his younger brother Gabe, 22, had previously moved out of their parents’ home in Las Vegas to live in Flagstaff, Arizona. This move was reportedly due to disagreements over their father’s strict COVID-19 protocols, as documented on the reality show.

After learning about Garrison’s alarming text, Janelle reached out to her other children, asking them to check on Garrison at his home in Flagstaff. Gabe volunteered to do so. Upon arrival, Gabe found Garrison dead from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head, as confirmed by the police.

According to the police report, Garrison had been living with three roommates, some of whom reported hearing a noise on Monday night but did not investigate it as they did not believe it was a gunshot. They also did not check on Garrison after hearing the noise. It was not until Gabe arrived at the house on Tuesday that Garrison’s body was discovered and 911 was called.

The roommates informed the police that Garrison had been struggling with alcohol. Despite this, Gabe told the police that Garrison seemed to be doing well recently and had secured a new job at a medical facility.

Janelle and Kody Brown released a joint statement on Instagram following Garrison’s death. They expressed their deep sadness over the loss of their son, describing him as a bright spot in the lives of those who knew him. They also asked for privacy and respect as they mourned their loss.
