A few hours after the first post, she posted a video of their son watching a video of Sutton. She also wrote, "Reflecting. He keeps replaying it. RIP Sutton".
Post his death, Sutton's lawyer shared, "It's devastating to hear about this tragedy. Mr. Tennyson was a loving father and an overall prince of a man". He also added that Tennyson's child custody case with Angela is now over and that she will get sole custody of their child.
