Brian was the twin brother of (Bruce) aka David Reimer. They were "famous" for the story of David's botched circumcision, which caused his parents to allow him to be reared as a girl. Ultimately, the shock of it all was too much, the boys became estranged when the truth was revealed.
When David decided to go public, with his book, As Nature Made Him, initially Brian was supportive, however, it caused him serious mental disturbance and he was eventually diagnosed as having schizophrenia.
He committed suicide by taking an overdose of his medications for schizophrenia.
David was devastated. He tended Brian's grave, cleaning it and leaving flowers. David also commited suicide, two years later.
Please visit the memorial I made for David for the complete story.
