Gavin Poeter, Tyler Perry’s nephew, was found dead in his Louisiana jail cell. They found him hanging.

“We can confirm the identity of Gavin Porter and we are awaiting the results of the autopsy,” the Union Parish Sheriff’s Office said in a statement. “There is no initial investigation and there didn’t appear to be any type of trauma to the body. It did appear to be a hanging.” Gavin’s mother (who is one of the Madea filmmaker’s sisters) was reportedly told by prison staff that Gavin hanged himself with a bedsheet while in solitary confinement, according to sources who spoke to TMZ.

Gavin was solitary confinement after getting into a fight with another inmate over the weekend according to sources. He was alive 6pm the night of his dead when guards checked on him. The guards checked on him again at 8pm that same night and he was found dead.
