Tyler Perry demands a second autopsy for nephew Gavin Porter… after authorities determined he died from suicide

  • Perry, 50, has hired noted pathologist Dr. Michael Baden to conduct a second autopsy on Porter
  • Porter was found dead in his jail cell on Tuesday, suspected of committing suicide, though Perry and his family aren’t so sure
  • Perry is suspicious of the original assertion that Porter killed himself because his nephew got into a fight with another inmate and placed in solitary confinement.

Tyler Perry has hired his own medical examiner after nephew Gavin Porter was deemed to have committed suicide.

Perry, 50, has enlisted Dr. Michael Baden, a pathologist who has been involved in a number of high profile cases including Jeffrey Epstein, to conduct a second autopsy for his late nephew, according to TMZ

This move comes after the filmmaker’s relative was found Tuesday night hanging from a bedsheet in his prison cell while in solitary confinement at a prison facility near Union Parish in Louisiana.

Perry is suspicious of the original assertion that Porter killed himself because his nephew got into a fight with another inmate and placed in solitary confinement.

Porter was serving a 20-year sentence for shooting and killing his father, in front of his mother, who is Perry’s sister.

Perry revealed in a statement that he had hoped Porter would be able to work for him, after serving his time.

‘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. But that day will never come,’ Perry said.

When asked why he hired Baden to conduct a second autopsy, Perry made it clear he and his family are not conspiracy theorists.

‘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,’ Perry said.

A rep from the Union Parrish Sheriff’s Office clarified that the investigation is ongoing.

‘There is an active investigation at the prison’s request. We are currently awaiting the results of an autopsy,’ the statement began.

‘The initial investigation did not suspect foul play. We are also conducting an investigation into the fight which occurred earlier and Porter’s involvement in that incident,’ the statement added.

‘We respect the family’s right to request another autopsy to be done. This is not an unusual request. We are continuing our investigation and awaiting autopsy results,’ their statement concluded.

On the night of his death, guards went to check on Porter around 6 PM, but when they came back at 8 PM, he was found dead.

There is no word on when the second autopsy will be conducted, or when the prison’s investigation will be complete.
