This is actually a Law & Order Special Victims Unit episode (#128 - Identity).

It's not based on a real world event, it's just a coincidence. Says so at the begining of the show.

Still, the botched circumcision and the attempted raising as a girl were true to life. Goes to show you can't force a gender role on someone, be it genetic or mental.

I think they took two different reallife incidences , omited some things to protect the actual people involved and presto! Television mimicry , mirroring life in these here modern times .

I seem to remember an episode of Horizon about the real life case this was based on. They had no problems about giving names etc. I think there was one where they explained the story of it and found the guy. Then a few years later there was a follow up after the guy killed himself.
