There has been some confusion on Brian Christopher Lawler's status today because some of his friends were saying that he passed away early this morning while some of his family said that he was brain dead and on life support.
Sadly, Kevin Lawler has confirmed that his brother was pulled off life support at approximately 5 pm eastern.
He posted the following on Facebook:
"Lots of different stories and rumors about my brother today. But as of 30 minutes ago he has officially passed. I love U and will miss U my brother! A very sad day today. Words can't describe."
As noted earlier, friends and family tried to help him get clean but his demons caught up to him. Brian is believed to have committed suicide last night while in jail.
