Morgan Freeman's Granddaughter Stabbed To Death
Morgan Freeman is mourning the loss of his step-granddaughter after she was stabbed to death in New York City yesterday.
Police officials were called to the Washington Heights neighbourhood just before 3am local time, when they discovered E’dena Hines bleeding on the sidewalk after suffering multiple knife wounds to the torso.
She was admitted to a nearby hospital, where the aspiring actress was subsequently pronounced dead.
A 30-year-old male suspect was arrested at the scene of the crime.
Freeman, who took Hines as his date to the 2005 Golden Globe Awards, has paid tribute to the 33 year old, who was the granddaughter of the actor's first wife, Jeanette Adair Bradshaw.
The actor wrote in a statement, "The world will never know her artistry in 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."
