Actor and filmmaker Tyler Perry has lent his support to the family of a Wisconsin woman who was killed in Georgia.

45-year-old Tynesha Evans was reportedly killed Saturday morning outside of a bank near Atlanta. Her 58-year-old boyfriend, Othniel Inniss, was arrested for the crime.

Evans was an author,  full time health care worker, and single mom.

Her family launched a fundraising campaign to stave off eviction. 

Perry’s support will allow for Evans body to be flown back to Wisconsin for burial, and to cover her 18-year-old daughter’s college tuition.

Two of Evans’ children are still minors. According to WITI, 14-year-old Shakemia Tuner called Perry “and angel on Earth.”
