The death of Gavin Porter, Tyler Perry's nephew, put the famous actor and director into action.
Porter is said to have died in his prison cell. The police have classified death as suicide, but Perry questions the verdict.
According to a memo he posted on Instagram, Perry has broken his silence about Porter's death and has announced that he will hire a pathologist to do a second autopsy. He says he does not trust investigators whom he describes as "notorious for cover-ups and / or mistakes" in cases where they are involved.
Porter was serving a 20-year prison sentence for murdering his biological father. Perry noted in a memo that he would hope that everyone would reconcile after he had served his time.

"Call me naive, but it was my hope that after serving his time, really thinking, showing remorse, and asking God for forgiveness, he would have been able to work for me," Perry wrote. "Where he would join all the other former inmates who work for me and turn his life around like they did. But this day will never come. "
Union Parish Sheriff's Office spokesman Johnny Gunter told Monroe at KNOE station in Louisiana that Porter was found in his cell at Union Parish internment camp in Farmerville around 8:30 p.m. Tuesday night.
After being involved in a fight with several inmates, he was transferred to a separate cell on Saturday, Dusty Gates, Union Parish sheriff, told local newspaper The News-Star.
He was originally charged with second degree murder after he was arrested when his father Gary Wane Porter died.
Gates said the weekend incident and Porter's death are currently under investigation. His body was sent to Little Rock, Arkansas, for an autopsy.
