‘Sister Wives’ Son Garrison Brown Dies at 25

(StraightNews.org) – The son of a polygamist reality show family has committed suicide at the age of 25. Garrison Brown’s brother Gabriel found his body at his home, according to Lieutenant Charles M. Hernandez II of the Flagstaff Police Department. Mr. Hernandez added that there was no indication of foul play but that his department would conduct a thorough investigation.

Writing on Instagram, Janelle Brown, one of four women “married” to Kody Brown and star of reality show Sister Wives, said the family is “devastated” by the young man’s death. NBC, the network that broadcasts the show, said, “We extend our deepest sympathies and heartfelt condolences to the Brown family at this difficult time.”

Police reports indicate that Janelle Brown was concerned about her son’s well-being after receiving what she called “troubling” text messages from him. The strange and ominous messages from the National Guard vet included, “I want to hate you for sharing the good times. But I can’t. I miss these days.”

Brown called upon her other son to check on Garrison, but when he did so, he found the 25-year-old dead. Garrison’s roommates told police they had a bang from his room but added that they did not believe it was a gunshot and did not check up on it.

They said the young man struggled with alcohol addiction, although his brother said he thought his mental health had recently improved as he’d taken on new work and seemed to be doing well.

Garrison was just 11 years old when Sister Wives launched in 2010. He was one of the family’s eighteen children who lived in Utah but later moved to Las Vegas and from there to Flagstaff, Arizona. The show features Kody Brown, his wife Robyn, and his ex-wives Meri, Janelle, and Christine.

Kody Brown recently said that he and his son had become estranged, and their relationship had broken down. “I think and hope that in time, we’ll just get over this,” he said.
