His body was found inside his car near the west side of the one-way bridge to Sayward, about 75 kilometres from Campbell River on the evening of March 12. He was last seen at about 1 p.m. on March 11. Officials said his murder was targeted.

Dillon Brown left behind four children, two of which, were born after his death.
