The article cites a report by The Sun about the events that led to Ami Brown’s questioning by law enforcement after Billy’s death. Her husband reportedly suffered a seizure which led to his death.

According to the article, an officer investigating the death spoke to both Ami and the couple’s 31-year-old son, Gabe Brown. The officer wanted to learn about Billy’s health history. He also expressed his sympathies about Billy’s death to the family.

The coroner arrived at the Brown’s home and the officer shared the information he had gathered about the patriarch from his family with the coroner. The coroner also collected the prescriptions Billy was taking, according to the article.

It has also been reported that it was a member of the “Alaska Bush People” crew who called 911. The crew member received information from Bear Brown that his father had stopped breathing. Bear had tried to contact emergency services via 911, but was not able to get in touch.

Billy Brown was reportedly given CPR, but he did not respond. He was later pronounced dead. However, no foul play is suspected in his death.

Billy’s loss is a tragic one for the family at the center of the “Alaskan Bush People” show on the Discovery Channel. It was Billy who motivated the family to take on its unique way of living. He wanted to be free and his way of doing that was to get away from the government. The family’s lifestyle is one focused on being self-sustaining and fans have come to love watching how they live.
