Brandon McHan
He was a twin. It means the surviving twin brother is cut in half, twins don't grieve the same.

Jun 1, 2022 When one twin dies, a profound sense of loss remains with the survivor — leaving them forever a twinless twin. The loss of a twin breaks the physical bond between the two, leaving the surviving twin feeling as if they're missing an appendage. The bereavement process for twins is different from mourning another sibling or close family member.

Brandon McHan's twin brother, Jeff McHan, spoke at the news conference, thanking authorities for the work they did to make arrests.

"My family will be able to sleep better tonight knowing that these animals are where they're supposed to be," Jeff McHan said, adding later: "My twin brother did not deserve anything like this. He was just trying to help this town out."
