Six days before his sudden death, Garrison Brown seemed happy to share some news.

The son of Sister Wives stars Janelle and Kody Brown posted a photo of him holding his new cat named Ms Buttons, who had joined two other cats in his home.

“Newest [addition] to my home, Ms Buttons,” he captioned the Instagram post. “She’s 9 years old and was on the line for euthanasia but my savior complex couldn’t suffice. #crazycatlady”

Janelle, 54, confirmed the news of her son’s death at age 25 on Instagram Tuesday, writing, "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, 55, also posted the same statement on his own Instagram page, and many members of the Brown family also shared the statement on their social media pages.)

Lieutenant Charles M. Hernandez II of the Flagstaff Police Department confirmed to PEOPLE: "On 03/05/2024 Flagstaff Police officers responded to a report of a death inside a home." The FPD confirmed that Garrison's brother Gabriel, 22, "discovered Mr. Brown deceased" in an apparent suicide.

Lt. Hernandez's statement continued, "At this time there is not any indication of foul play, and Detectives from the Criminal Investigations Division are investigating."

TLC have known Garrison since the debut of the TLC show, which showed his family, including his siblings Maddie, 28; Savanah, 19; Logan, 29; Hunter, 27, and Gabe, all of whom are Janelle's children with Kody (who share 12 more children with his former and present sister wives).

Leading up to Garrison's death, he and Gabe were feeling strain in their relationship with Kody following the COVID-19 pandemic. However, on last year's Sister Wives Special: Look Back, Where We Started special, Janelle revealed that her ex did eventually "have somewhat of a relationship with Garrison" but that there was overall "no reconciliation."

In a statement to PEOPLE following his death, TLC said of the tragic news: "We are devastated to hear of the tragic loss of Garrison Brown. We extend our deepest sympathies and heartfelt condolences to the Brown family at this difficult time."
