David Oliver Relin, Gregory Mortenson's co-author on the bestseller "Three Cups of Tea," has died. The 49-year-old committed suicide Nov. 15 in Oregon, the Multnomah County medical examiner announced late Sunday, saying blunt force trauma to the head was the cause of death. Relin's suicide adds to the shadow cast on "Three Cups of Tea," which tells of Mortenson's travels in the mountains of Afghanistan and Pakistan and his work creating schools for the children, particularly girls, in those remote regions.

David Oliver Relin, a journalist who coauthored the celebrated but controversial book "Three Cups of Tea," has committed suicide in Oregon, authorities said. He was 49. Relin, who lived in Portland, died Nov. 15 in the Portland-area community of Corbett, Multnomah County Deputy Medical Examiner Tom Chappelle said Monday. He said Relin died of self-inflicted blunt-force head injuries. Relin's body was found along railroad tracks near the Columbia River, Multnomah County sheriff's officials told the Associated Press.
