On Wednesday, the army confirmed that he was discovered on Sunday at his home, adding that the circumstances are under investigation by Special Agents from the U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Division (CID). 

Madsen was an Infantryman serving as a team leader with 2nd Battalion, 27th Infantry Regiment, 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 25th Infantry Division at Schofield Barracks.

‘Sgt. Madsen was a dedicated Soldier and leader,’ said Lt. Col. Michael Haith, commander of 2nd Battalion, 27th Infantry Regiment said.

‘We grieve Hudson’s passing, and extend our heartfelt condolences to his family. 

‘Our thoughts and prayers are with them during this difficult time.’ 

Madsen joined the Army in April 2016 and had one deployment to Afghanistan from August 2018 to January 2019 while stationed at Fort Carson, Colorado.

He had been awarded multiple medals and decorations including the Army Commendation Medal, the Army Achievement Medal with ‘Combat’ device; Army Good Conduct Medal; Army Service Ribbon; Overseas Service Ribbon; and the NATO Medal. 

He has received the Army Commendation Medal posthumously.

Madsen’s father said he is ‘heartbroken and overwhelmed with grief and pain’.  

His family said in a statement to Metro: ‘We are heartbroken and overwhelmed with grief and pain at the loss of Hudson.

‘His memory and light will be remembered by all who knew and loved him. We ask for privacy and respect during this difficult time. Thank you.’

Hudson’s mother DeAnna Madsen, 61, has traveled to Hawaii to deal with the tragedy, a source told the publication. 

His father Michael is a famed Hollywood hellraiser, and was forced into rehab by a judge in 2013 after failing to attend AA meetings following a DUI arrest. 

In 2019, the actor was axed from a $100,000 role in movie Confessions of a Serial Killer after crashing his Land Rover into a pole and subsequently being arrested for DUI.  He was later sentenced to four days in jail. 

A spokeswoman for the Department of the Medical Examiner in Honolulu said earlier: ‘I can confirm Hudson Lee Madsen, 26, died by a gunshot wound to the head in a suspected suicide on the island of Oahu.’   

Hudson is survived by his wife, Carlie, and since August 2019 had been living in Wahiawa, Hawaii after serving time in the U.S. Army. 

Last week, on January 15, Carlie underwent surgery and paid tribute to her husband for his support.

‘I just want to give a shout-out to my amazing husband!’ she wrote on Instagram. 

‘Yesterday I had surgery to remove a tumor from one of my breasts and he was and has been so patient throughout this whole process! 

‘We were at the hospital for about 7 hours yesterday and while I was in surgery he went to target and got me flowers, comfy pajamas, my favorite candy and a card! He’s also been amazing in helping with my recovery and I’m just so thankful! 

‘I also want to thank my family and friends that have reached out to make sure I’m okay and to check in on me! I love you all so much.’

The couple met in 2017, with the Minnesota-born Carlie commenting on Facebook to a friend, who asked if he was ‘a keeper’: ‘He’s actually in the army and stationed down in Colorado! I met him through my best friend that lives there! And I think he’s a keeper!’

Madsen replied: ‘I am a keeper by the way’.

In June 2017, she posted a sweet black and white photo of them together, captioned: ‘Miss you so much.’

Madsen proposed in November 2017, getting down on one knee on top of Pike’s Peak in Colorado. 

The couple were married in 2018, Carlie’s Facebook says. 

Soon after, he was deployed with the Army.

On January 20, 2019, a friend commented: ‘Yo you home already Hudson Madsen?’

Carlie replied: ‘No, it keeps on getting pushed back’ – accompanied by a crying emoji.  

By January 27, 2019, he was home, with Carlie posting a photo of the pair together. 

The couple held an ‘official’ wedding in June 2019 at Cheyenne Mountain state park in Colorado, ‘even though we had been married for a year and half already at that point,’ Carlie wrote on Instagram. 

‘It was one of the happiest days of my life but also very uhhh… interesting I’ll say. 

‘We had an outdoor ceremony during a thunderstorm and no one could hear us. 

‘I was puking in the bathroom till about 2 minutes before I walked down the isle. 

‘We had to fire our DJ halfway through the reception and thankfully a different, way better, DJ showed up. 

‘We almost got kicked out of our reception place because people got caught sneaking alcohol in and got caught attempting to do uhhmm.. ‘extra curricular activities’.

‘BUT even after all of that it was still one of the best days of my life because I got to celebrate with all our family and friends and I got to marry my best friend for the second time. 

‘Thank you to everyone that was able to make it and make it a day I will never forget.   

‘And thank you to my wonderful husband for everything you do for me and our family. I couldn’t be happier to have you by my side through this crazy life. I love you more.’ 

They moved to Hawaii in August 2019. 

In May 2020 he was deployed again, this time from his new Hawaii home. 

‘Saying goodbye to you never gets easier,’ she wrote. 

‘I’m already missing the s*** out of you. Please come home quickly. I’ll see you in 5 months my love. I love you more.’

In March 2021, Carlie revealed that they were embarking on fertility treatment, and said she was sharing their news to end the stigma.

‘In the last 2 months Hudson and I found out that we can’t have kids naturally and we have to do IVF,’ she wrote. 

‘We also were told that it will probably take 2 or more times of IVF treatment for me to get pregnant. I’m only sharing this because it needs to be normalized and more talked about.’ 

Their Facebook pages were equally full of loving comments.

In April 2021, when Carlie posted a photo of herself holding a huge bird, Madsen commented: ‘Ayyy. Dats my wife. I love you baby.’

When she posted a photo on the beach, he said: ‘Dayyyuuummm gurll. You fine.’ 

In another beach photo, he joked: ‘Ooooo gurlll. Can i get yo number?’ 

Her final photo of the couple together, in November, showed Madsen giving his wife a piggy back on a beach.

‘So in love with how these pictures turned out,’ she said. 

Madsen is survived by his brothers Calvin, 25, and Luke, 16, and step-brothers Christian, 31, and Max, 27, from Michael’s previous relationship with Jeannine Bisignano. 

Michael Madsen and Tarrantino have collaborated on multiple films together, including Reservoir Dogs and the Kill Bill series.
