Tyler Perry hopes to help solve a murder mystery of a recently killed man in Grenada. He has put up reward money in anticipation of gaining information about the killing of a gay man close to one of his friends.

“A few days ago, I got an extremely heartbreaking phone call from my friend, Yvette Noel-Schure. Through her tears and grief, she told me that in her home country of Grenada, a young man that was like a son to her was murdered. My soul ached as she shared that he was a young, gifted singer who was murdered because he was gay.”

Perry states in the post that the killing reminded him of a similar killing in Collier County, Florida, several years ago. Terrance Williams was found dead in prison, and the family old that he hung himself. He also brought up Mathew Shepard, a gay man who was beaten, tortured, and left to die when he was a student at the University of Wyoming on Oct. 6, 1998.
He states that the pain of not knowing what happened can be crippling.
