The family’s grief was further elevated by concerns raised by Garrison’s text 'ominous' messages, which led to their son Gabriel offering to check in, according to a police report obtained by TMZ.

Janelle told the police that Garrison had texted a group of people that the Brown family works with, presumably for their show and the words were "ominous."

He texted them, “I want to hate you for sharing the good times. But I can’t. I miss these days."

 

Janelle, who was not in the group chat, learned of her son’s message and tried to reach out to him via text. She was able to have a “brief conversation” with him for a few minutes before he stopped responding.

Mental Health and social media contributed to Garrison Brown's death 

Maddie Brown Brush, Garisson's other sister recently spoke about Garrison’s mental health struggles before his death in a long Instagram video.

“It wasn’t bullying. It wasn’t a lack of love that Garrison had. It was mental health,” she said in a March 18 Instagram video.

“I am going to continue talking about mental health and self-care until I am blue in the face because I don’t think it’s talked about enough in a way that people understand it,” she stated.

"Garrison used to feel like he wasn't doing enough because he was comparing himself to things on social media and I don't think that it's real and we need to remember that," she narrated.
