Tyler Perry Reacts to Nephew’s Second Autopsy Results
Tyler Perry is speaking out following the results of his nephew Gavin Porter‘s second autopsy.
The 50-year-old Madea’s Family Reunion actor told TMZ that his family has received the results from Dr. Michael Baden.
“I spoke with Dr. Michael Baden today after he finished the autopsy on my nephew,” Tyler also wrote on Instagram. “I was relieved to hear that he is 98% sure that there was no foul play in his death, just as Sheriff Gates stated.”
“Answers don’t take away grief, but they surely give room for grieving to take its course,” he added.
Tyler‘s nephew allegedly died by suicide in a Louisiana prison at age 26. He was reportedly in solitary confinement after getting into a fight last weekend and was found dead on Tuesday night.
Gavin was serving a 20-year sentence for shooting and killing his father in front of his mother (Tyler‘s sister).
