Deputy Brown succumbed to injuries sustained 11 months earlier when he was assaulted by a member of an extremist religious organization. A large group of deputies were attempting to arrest several of the church members when they were attacked by a mob of extremists with firearms, rocks, rakes and metal pipes. Deputy Brown was struck in the chest with a five-foot long metal pipe, causing him to suffer a bruised heart.
The following July, Deputy Brown was operated on to remove a blood clot from his heart. Two months later he suffered an aneurysm and died.
Deputy Brown was survived by his parents and two sisters
