The second autopsy that Tyler Perry commissioned for his nephew seems to confirm that the 26-year-old committed suicide and was not a victim of foul play.
The filmmaker hired Dr. Michael Baden last week to perform the examination after Gavin Porter was found dead in a Louisiana prison. Officials said he hanged himself with bedsheets while in solitary confinement. But his family had doubts.
Now Perry says, “The answers don’t take away grief, but it surely gives room for grieving to take its course.”
Porter was sentenced to 20 years for killing his father.
