According to New York Post “police sources,” Morgan Freeman’s step-granddaughter was stabbed to death this weekend by her boyfriend, who was allegedly experiencing some sort of drug-induced psychosis.
The victim, E’dena Hines, was a 33-year-old Broadway actress who occasionally attended events and premieres with her famous step-grandfather. She was pronounced dead this weekend after a man stabbed her multiple times on a street in Washington Heights early Sunday morning.
Witnesses and at least one law enforcement officer tell the Post the culprit was Hines’ live-in boyfriend, 30-year-old actor and rapper Lamar Davenport, who was apparently attempting to perform some sort of exorcism on her.
“Get out, devils! I cast you out, devils! In the name of Jesus Christ, I cast you out!” the killer yelled as he plunged a hunting knife into 33-year-old E’Dena Hines’ chest, according to George Hudacko, who witnessed the 3 a.m. attack from his apartment window in Washington Heights.
By 3 a.m., Davenport was so crazed that he continued his attack even as Hines lay lifeless on the sidewalk, one police source said.
When cops wrestled him off her, he “was still making a stabbing motion with his arm, but he had nothing in his fist — the knife was jutting out of her chest,” the police source said.
