  • Step-Granddaughter of Morgan Freeman, E’Dena Hines Stabbed to Death

E’Dena Hines is the step-granddaughter of famous Hollywood actor, Morgan Freeman. She got killed in a cold-blooded manner. That is by her mad boyfriend on the streets of Washington Heights recently.

Morgan Freeman’s step-granddaughter got killed on the street by her mentally unbalanced boyfriend. He stabbed her with a knife. All the while he was shouting the words "Get out, devils".

The place where the senseless crime took place was Washington Heights. The police gathered on the site of the ruthless murder and several witnesses were there too.

E’Dena Hines was a beautiful girl in the prime of her youth. And she happened to be the step-granddaughter of Morgan Freeman. She was lying on the street with blood pouring out of several wounds on her chest.

The time of the crime was 3:00 am. One of the witnesses called the police and 911. “I watched someone get murdered, and there was nothing I could do,” one witness George Hudacko told NYDailyNews.

That was after seeing her crazy fanatical boyfriend trying to exorcise her. He was stabbing her with a knife and calling upon Jesus Christ to cast out her demons. According to some witnesses, Hines was semi-naked at the time of the incident.

The murderer happened to be her boyfriend. He was later on apprehended and taken into police custody. The weapon he used to stab Hines with got recovered too. His name is Lamar Davenport and he is 30 years old.

Although Hines got taken to a hospital in a hurry, she could not be saved from the jaws of death. Morgan Freeman came to know of the unfortunate and tragic occurrence. He was heartbroken. He had a close bond with his step-granddaughter.

The man loved her like she was his own flesh and blood. In a Facebook post, he said that she was so talented and creative. She could have gone on to bloom as an actress. Yet her life had been cut short in such a meaningless manner.  

Morgan Freeman said that the thoughts and prayers of every member of her family as well as her friends were with her. She meant a lot to them and will be missed.

I want to acknowledge the tremendous outpouring of love and support my family has received regarding the tragic and senseless passing of my granddaughter Edena Hines. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. -MPosted by Morgan Freeman on Sunday, August 16, 2015

Davenport got charged with second-degree murder. He is a mentally sick individual. Thus partial blame lies on his ailment as well. What is unclear is what provoked the stabbing. Hines was looking forward to a career in acting.

She had already appeared in an Indie film too. Hines had a cheerful and fun-loving personality. Morgan Freeman was proud of her. And he is so sad now that he's deprived of her company.
