Taking to social media after hearing the news of Jacqueline’s passing, Perry extended his sincerest condolences. The news came as a great shock to many.

“My heart breaks for Clarence and Nicole and all the Avant family. This world can be so cruel and cold!!”

Following his condolence post, Perry made it clear that the perpetrators will be found. The A-list star just cannot fathom who would do this to “an 81-year-old woman.”

“But you can rest assured that every available resource will be used to find whoever is responsible for this awful nightmare. This is tremendously sad.”

During a press conference on Wednesday afternoon, Beverly Hills Police Chief Mark Stainbrook assured the public that authorities are taking the investigation very seriously.

Stainbrook does not believe the attack was random. He could give no further information as the investigation is still ongoing. 

Variety reported that Stainbrook also gave a heart-wrenching message from the Avant family during the press conference:

“Jacqueline was an amazing woman — a wife, mother, philanthropist and a 55-year resident of Beverly Hills who has made an immeasurable positive contribution and impact on the arts community. She will be missed by her family, friends and all the people she has helped throughout her amazing life.”
