Sheriff Brown was shot and killed in his bedroom as he prepared himself for bed. His apartment was attached to the county jail. A man who escaped from jail five days earlier was arrested following the murder and confessed to killing Sheriff Brown because he believed the sheriff would kill him if he was caught. The suspect was sentenced to death and executed on May 31, 1938.

Sheriff Brown had been with the agency for one year. His wife was appointed to complete his term in office. He was survived by his wife and two children.
