Tyler Perry is asking whether his nephew’s death was murder or suicide.
Gavin Porter, 26, who was serving a 20 year sentence for shooting and killing his dad in front of his mother (Tyler’s sister), was found hanging in his cell from a bed sheet. Tyler has hired his own medical examiner to do another autopsy, Dr. Michael Baden who has been involved in numerous famous cases like John F. Kennedy, O.J. Simpson and Jeffrey Epstein.
Gavin allegedly got into a fight with another inmate last weekend, which placed him 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.”
“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.
