Tyler Perry wants to look further into the passing of his nephew who allegedly hanged himself in prison as he deems his death suspicious.
Tyler has hired a famous medical examiner to do another autopsy on his nephew, 26-year-old Gavin Porter, who was serving 20 years for shooting and killing his dad in front of his mother (Tyler’s sister). Gavin was found Tuesday night hanging in his cell from a bedsheet, according to TMZ.
One of the reasons Tyler is suspicious about his nephew’s death is because Gavin got into a fight with another inmate last weekend and was then placed in solitary.
“Call me naive, but it was my hope that after serving his time, and really reflecting and showing much remorse and asking God for forgiveness, that he would have been able to come to work for me, joining all the other former inmates who work for me and turn his life around just as they have,” Tyler told TMZ. “But that day will never come.”
Tyler said he has hired Dr. Michael Baden, a famed pathologist who has been involved in numerous cases, including that of former president John F. Kennedy, O.J. Simpson and Jeffrey Epstein.
“I want to be clear that we are not a family of conspiracy theorists and want to believe that there was no foul play just as the sheriff said publicly,” Tyler said as to why he wanted the second autopsy to be conducted.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Tyler Perry’s family at this time.
