Crime of the Day: Actor Morgan Freeman’s Granddaughter Stabbed to Death in Failed ‘Exorcism’

OK, so…uh…what the heck? Actor Morgan Freeman’s granddaughter was murdered over the weekend and police are saying it was the result of a failed “exorcism.”

Apparently her boyfriend thought he needed to get “the devils” out of her and he stabbed her to death.

“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.

Hines, an actress who had appeared on Broadway and on red carpets at Freeman’s side, was stabbed 16 times, officials said.

“The girl was making a lot of noise, screaming,” Hudacko said, adding. “I called 911 — I was begging them to come.”

Hines — whose grandmother Jeanette Adair Bradshaw was Freeman’s first wife — was attacked on West 162nd Street near St. Nicholas Avenue, a few buildings from where she lived, cops and sources said.
Her live-in boyfriend, Lamar Davenport, 30, was in the throes of a drug-induced psychosis when he came after her, police sources said.
“Jesus Christ is born!” he shouted maniacally over her body.

The 78-year-old actor that seems to be in every second movie that comes out issued 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.”

What a shame, what a crime.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to this young woman’s family.
