Morgan Freeman’s step-granddaughter was allegedly murdered by her boyfriend early Sunday morning in what some media folks are a calling “an exorcism.”
According to The New York Post, Edena Hines, 33, was stabbed 16 times near her New York apartment building by Lamar Davenport, 30. Witness George Hudacko, who watched the stabbing unfold from his apartment window, said that Davenport screamed “Get out, devils! I cast you out, devils! In the name of Jesus Christ, I cast you out!” as he stabbed Hines.
“The girl was making a lot of noise, screaming,” Hudacko told the Post, adding, “I called 911 — I was begging them to come.”
Ray Rosario, a musician and a friend of Hines, told The Daily Beast he had dinner with the couple and others on Saturday night before the murder.
“I’ve never seen Edena as happy as she was last night,” Rosario said. “I’m still trying to come to grips with what happened … I’m caught between the hate I have for [Davenport], my love for him being my brother, and my heart breaking for her.”
Freeman issued the following statement Sunday:
“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 victim’s grandmother was Freeman’s first wife.
