Morgan Freeman’s granddaughter murdered by boyfriend during exorcism
17 August 2015, Nirapad News: The step-granddaughter of Hollywood star Morgan Freeman was allegedly murdered by her boyfriend as he tried to perform an ‘exorcism’ on her in the middle of a New York street, a witness has claimed.
George Hudacko, who saw E’Dena Hines fatally stabbed, said her killer was screaming “Get out, devils! I cast you out, devils! In the name of Jesus Christ, I cast you out!” as he carried the attack.
The 65-year-old watched the attack from his window calling 911 after hearing the victim scream.
“The girl was making a lot of noise, screaming,” Mr Hudacko said.
“I saw something sparkly going up and down. … I called 911, I was begging them to come.”
Hines, whose grandmother, Jeanette Adair Bradshaw, was the Batman star’s first wife, was stabbed shortly before 3am yesterday in Harlem.
Witnesses claim the 33-year-old’s boyfriend repeatedly stabbed her even after she stopped showing any signs of life.
Within hours of the attack, Freeman issued a statement saying: “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.”
Although Hines and Freeman, 78, were not directly related by blood, their bond was so close she would sometimes joined him on the red carpet to movie premieres and award shows.
Her ex-boyfriend was arrested and taken to Columbia Presbyterian Hospital for a psychiatric evaluation, police later said.
