Madsen revealed his thoughts on the US Army sergeant’s tragic passing in a January statement to the Los Angeles Times.

“I am in shock as my son, whom I just spoke to a few days ago, said he was happy – my last text from him was ‘I love you dad,'” he said at the time.

“It’s so tragic and sad. I’m just trying to make sense of everything and understand what happened. ”

Madsen added, “He had typical life challenges that people have with finances, but he wanted a family. He was looking towards his future, so it’s mind-blowing. I just can not grasp what happened. ”
