Officers responded to Garrison's home on Tuesday morning following reports of a death. Upon arriving, Garrison was declared dead from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Authorities say that Garrison's brother Gabriel was the one who found his lifeless body. No foul play is suspected at the time of this writing and there is no word on whether a suicide note was left behind. However, an investigation is already underway to get to the root of the unfortunate death.

Late Garrison was the fourth of Kody and Janelle's five children. He appeared on the hit reality show that details the polygamous life of his father. Just last year, his mother, alongside two other wives — Meri Brown and Christine Brown — got divorced from Kody and exited the marriage.

However, as Garrison grew older, he decided to forge a separate path and enlisted in the National Guard. He also moved out of the family house during the COVID-19 pandemic and bought his Arizona home in 2021.

Garrison's unfortunate passing comes just a day after his mother shared the news of a cancer scare. Janelle shared a picture of her face, showcasing a lump on her lip, as she revealed,

"I had a basal cell carcinoma removed right after Covid. I go in annually to have a head to toe check. Today I had 2 pre-cancerous spots frozen and a tiny lump removed from my lip. Yes it’s a pain to schedule the appointment when you are busy. And yes there is a small amount of discomfort. But 2 pre-cancerous spots stopped in their tracks. Worth it."
