What ‘Sister Wives’ Star Janelle Brown Told Police About Her Son After His Tragic Passing Will Break Your Heart

The police report taken after Garrison Brown was found deceased by his brother Gabriel has been released.

According to In Touch, Garrison’s three roommates revealed the 25-year-old was struggling with alcohol abuse, calling him an “alcoholic,” who “had drinks every night” and was battling with depression. However, the roommate told the police that he never said anything to them during their conversations about his struggles that would indicate his plans to take his own life.

Now, Garrison’s mom, Janelle is wishing she would have done more for her son. As the police report continued, Janelle told officers that she “wished she would have helped [her son] more in the past.

Janelle, however, did not go into further detail. She also shared the last picture she took with all her children together.

“I had all my children together last Christmas,” She wrote. “It was amazing as it’s hard with everyone’s busy lives to coordinate time like this. I am extremely grateful now that we had pictures taken.”

As Mamas Uncut previously reported, in the same police report, Garrison Brown’s final text messages to people in his life were also revealed.

According to TMZ, it were these text messages that prompted his mom Janelle Brown to ask one of his brothers to go to his Flagstaff, Arizona home to check on him. Sadly, by the time his brother arrived, Garrison had already passed on.

As TMZ reports, Garrison sent a message to a group of people his family worked with. The text read, “I want to hate you for sharing the good times. But I can’t. I miss these days.”

After Janelle learned of the message, she texted Garrison herself. She told police that she and Garrison has a “brief” conversation before he stopped responding to her. 

That’s when she reached out to some of his siblings asking if anyone can go check on him.

Sadly, the night before Garrison’s brother arrived to do the welfare check, Garrison’s roommates told police that they “heard a pop on Monday night” but didn’t know it was the sound of a gunshot.

During their interviews with police, none of the roommates reportedly checked on Garrison after hearing the sound. Garrison was discovered by his brother the following morning when his brother arrived at his house.

TMZ reports he was found holding a handgun. 

Janelle Brown has also shared a statement following news of her son’s passing.

“Kody and I are deeply saddened to announce the loss of our beautiful boy Robert Garrison Brown. He was a bright spot in the lives of all who knew him. His loss will leave such a big hole in our lives that it takes our breath away. We ask that you please respect our privacy and join us in honoring his memory.”

Kody and Janelle Brown’s son, Garrison Brown, has reportedly passed away. He was only 25.

Now fans are heartbroken over his last Instagram post just six days before his unexpectedly passing. On the social platform, Garrison shared a photo of himself holding a cat, a cat he recently adopted.

“Newest edition to my home, Ms Buttons,” Garrison wrote in the caption. “She’s 9 years old and was on the line for euthanasia but my savior complex couldn’t suffice. #crazycatlady.”

People in the comments, people shared their condolences and asked if anyone knew what shelter Garrison volunteered at in order to make donations in his honor. So far, a confirmed answer has not been given.

According to TMZ, who first reported the news, Garrison’s cause of death is being reported as suicide.

This devastating news comes after Flagstaff, Arizona police confirmed reports that officers responded to requests to check on Garrison at his home. When police arrived, Garrison was already deceased.
