The Flagstaff Police Department said in a statement Variety from which Garrison died “as a result of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.”

Garrison has appeared on the popular reality series TLC since it first aired on the network in 2010. At the time of its first broadcast, Brown was a child. The series describes his father’s polygamous lifestyle in Utah, where Kody has several wives. Janelle was married to Kody until they divorced last year.

When he came of age, Garrison expressed an interest in enlisting in the armed forces. While he wanted to join the military, Garrison eventually enlisted in the National Guard — eventually moving out of his parents’ house and into his own after the pandemic.

“We are devastated to hear of the tragic loss of Garrison Brown,” a TLC spokesperson said in a statement. “We extend our deepest condolences and sincere condolences to the Brown family at this difficult time.”

After Janelle spiritually married Kody in 1993, the couple had six children: Madison, Logan, Garrison, Gabriel, Hunter and Savanah. In December 2022, Janelle announced that she and Kody had split.

Over the years, Kody’s relationship with his children had become strained, something Janelle later addressed in a confessional interview, where she lamented her children’s rocky relationship with their father.

“I was worried about my boys’ mental health. Gabriel feels everything very, very deeply. But he’s also the kid who doesn’t say anything,” she said, adding that Garrison “just seems angry or sadder, like he’s not as happy as he used to be.”

In a later admission that followed the airing of an episode in May 2023, Kody admitted that a rift had developed between him and his children, emphasizing his hope that they could get over it “with time.” ”

‘I think and hope that in time we will get over this and that we can be together safely again. There isn’t really an open door with Gabe and Garrison at the moment. They are not willing to deal with me,” he said.
