Morgan Freeman’s Granddaughter Murdered
Morgan Freeman is currently reeling over the shocking murder of his 33-year-old granddaughter.
E’Dena Hines, an aspiring actress, was found stabbed to death in Manhattan and her boyfriend was arrested shortly thereafter.
Police have arrested a man they say fatally stabbed the granddaughter of actor Morgan Freeman in Manhattan early on Sunday.
Lamar Davenport, 30, is charged with second-degree murder in the death of E’Dena Hines, 33.
Police say they found Hines unresponsive with stab wounds to her body after responding to a call in front of her apartment building on West 162nd Street in Washington Heights.
She was taken to Harlem Hospital, where she was pronounced dead.
Freeman mourned Hines in a statement Sunday, saying: “The world will never know her artistry and talent, and how much she had to offer. Her friends and family were fortunate enough to have known what she meant as a person. Her star will continue to shine bright in our hearts, thoughts and prayers. May she rest in peace.”
The actor also thanked fans for the “tremendous outpouring of love and support” following news of Hines’ death in a post on his Facebook page.
Freeman’s publicist said Sunday that Hines was technically the actor’s step-granddaughter but that he always referred to her as his granddaughter. Police initially said that she was his goddaughter.
Prayers to the Freeman and Hines family.WENN
