Morgan Freeman's Granddaughter E'Dena Hines Dead After Stabbing

Morgan Freeman‘s step-granddaughter E’Dena Hines was stabbed to death in the early hours of Sunday (August 16) in New York City.

The 33-year-old was found with multiple stab wounds on the street in Washington Heights before being taken to Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center. She was pronounced dead at the hospital.

A 30-year-old man was taken into custody and is undergoing psychiatric evaluation after being found kneeling over her body.

“The world will never know her artistry and talent, and how much she had to offer,” Morgan said in a statement (via People). “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.”
