Gerwald Claus-Brunner (19 May 1972 – 19 September 2016) was a German politician and member of the Pirate Party Berlin, which is a branch of the national Pirate Party. He entered the state parliament of Berlin when the Pirate party won 15 seats in the 2011 Berlin state election.
The autopsy came to the result that Claus-Brunner had committed suicide and that the 29-year-old man had been killed days earlier. On 21 September, a parcel service gave an undeliverable parcel to the police; Claus-Brunner had sent it to a former longtime companion. The parcel contained a letter in which Brunner confessed to having killed the man. Brunner had been in love with him; Brunner's final twitter tweet was a photo of that man.
