Brian Lee Schappert was born on March 2, 1967 at St. Lukes Hospital in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, the first of two children born to Arnold and Laura (Kinsel) Schappert. He attended Garfield Elementary, Franklin Jr. High, and Washington High Schools, all in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

He'd worked one year at a Kum & Go convenience store before enrolling in classes at Coe College, where he was double majoring in Political Science and History. He continued working at the Kum & Go while in college to help pay for his education, and would often work the late night and early morning shifts because there was less activity and he could sometimes work in some study time.

At some point during his college years he met a young lady named Connie, and they became great friends. While they never made it official, the two planned to marry once Brian graduated from college.

On Friday, September 8, 1989, Brian was brutally slain during a store robbery at the Cedar Rapids Kum & Go store located at 2743 Mount Vernon Road SE. Brian, who'd just begun his senior year at Coe College that same week, had been working the midnight shift alone.

Brian's murder - which remains unsolved - led to the installation of surveillance cameras in all of Cedar Rapids' all-night businesses.

In addition to his parents, Brian was survived by a brother, Darrin, and Darrin's wife Angie.
