Local news reporting Matt Hearn, 26, fell 100' during descent, allegedly due to "equipment failure."

Has anyone witnessed it and/or have more details?

There's already a thread with the full details.  Not equipment failure (don't ever trust KSL's reporting or comments they are never accurate.) It  was a communication failure in a cleaning situation. https://www.mountainproject.com/forum/topic/113326298/rock-climber-dies-from-fall-in-big-cottonwood-canyon
