David Oliver Relin, 49, journalist and co-author of the controversial book Three Cups of Tea, committed suicide on Nov. 14 in Corbett, Ore., the Multnomah County medical examiner revealed on Dec. 2. A family spokesperson said he suffered from depression. Relin, who cowrote the 2006 bestseller with Greg Mortenson, recounts how Mortenson built schools in Pakistan and Afghanistan through his charity. But the book came under fire in 2011 when 60 Minutes and author Jon Krakauer alleged that the story contained fabricated material about the people Mortenson met and the number of schools he built. A lawsuit filed by readers claimed he and Mortenson had defrauded them, but the suit was dismissed earlier this year.
