“Morgan Freeman’s granddaughter was stabbed to death Sunday morning in New York,” reports the Washington Post.
Her name was E’Dena Hines. She was 33-years-old and was an actress.
The story adds, “Authorities found a 30-year-old male suspect, whom police described as her boyfriend, standing over her body and shouting out Bible verses, police told Newsday. He was taken into custody and transported by ambulance to Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center for a psychological evaluation.”
The Washington Post article continues, “One witness said [the boyfriend] appeared to be trying to exorcise her from demons. ‘Get out devils! I cast you out Devils in the name of Jesus Christ! I cast you out!’ the suspect screamed, witness George Hudacko, 65, told the New York Daily News.”
Writes the New York Post, the boyfriend was, allegedly, “in the throes of a drug-induced psychosis when he came after [Hines], police sources said.
The New York Post also says that Freeman said in a statement, “The world will never know her artistry and talent and how much she had to offer. Her star will continue to shine bright in our hearts, thoughts and prayers. May she rest in peace.”
