This past weekend, actor Morgan Freeman’s step granddaughter E’Dena Hines was killed in front of her NY apartment by her boyfriend. The 33 year old aspiring actress was found by officers lying in the street outside her apartment on the 400 block of W. 162nd Street at around 3:00 am.
Hines suffered from multiple stab wounds to her torso. She was the granddaughter of Freeman’s first wife. She studied acting at New York University’s prestigious Graduate Acting Program. She even made an cameo appearance on Freeman’s movie, 5 Flights Up where she played a nurse.
Here is a statement from Freeman expressing his condolences:
“The world will never know her artistry and talent, and how much she had to offer, her friends and family were fortunate enough to have known what she meant as a person.”
We send our prayers and condolences to her family & friends.
