The TLC star — who was previously in a polygynous marriage with Garrison’s parents Kody, 54, and his now ex-wife Janelle Brown, 54, up until November 2021 — also added a series of hashtags, including one that read, “#tellthoseyoulovethatyoulovethem.”

Per TMZ, the 25-year-old was found dead in his Flagstaff, AZ. home from a self-inflicted gunshot on Tuesday.

According to a police report obtained by the outlet, Garrison’s younger brother Gabriel Brown found his sibling dead after their mom urged the 22-year-old to check in on him following concerning text messages.

Janelle was seemingly the last person to be in contact with the National Guard member though the details of their conversation are unknown, TMZ reported.

The night before his body was discovered, Garrison’s roommates reportedly heard a pop sound but didn’t think it was a gunshot, per the outlet.

They also reportedly told authorities he was battling substance abuse issues amid ongoing family issues.
