This is a terribly sad story, regardless of who the victim here is, but it’s worth reporting here since it involves a celebrity. Morgan Freeman‘s goddaughter, 33-year-old E’Dena Hines, was stabbed to death in New York City’s Washington Heights neighbourhood in the early hours of Sunday morning, it’s been reported. The man who killed her happened to be Hines’ live-in boyfriend, who believed he was performing an “exorcism” and was found still standing over Hines’ body screaming when police arrived on the scene.

From US Weekly:

Police tell Us Hines was stabbed multiple times in the torso. She was then taken to Harlem Hospital where was was pronounced dead. She was 33 at the time of her death.

A 30-year-old male was arrested after being found kneeling over Hines. He was taken to Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center and is currently undergoing psychiatric evaluation.

“The world will never know her artistry and talent, and how much she had to offer,” Freeman said in a statement. “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. “

Terrible tragedy, really. Mental illness can be downright dangerous, and domestic violence can be deadly. Really, really sad to hear this. Yet another awful, completely preventable, senseless loss of life.

  • You have a small typo: she was his granddaughter (step-granddaughter from a now ex-wife, specifically) But, still very sad, either way.
