I posted the Washington Post obit early in the morning of a busy day and frankly have not had a chance to read it closely. But Brandstetter did not have the same lover for 22 years, unless I completely misremember it. I am reading OBEDIENCE (1988)and I don't think he was with this TV reporter for the entire run.
