REVEALED! Morgan Freeman's granddaughter E'Dena Hines' chilling last words before being brutally stabbed to death
30-year-old rapper Lamar Davenport had claimed that he was trying to get the devil out of his girlfriend E'Dena Hines
The trial for 30-year-old rapper, Lamar Davenport, who stabbed Morgan Freeman's granddaughter E'Dena Hines to death is underway and in a witness account the victim's chilling final words were revealed.
The 33-year-old was Lamar's girlfriend and he apparently stabbed her because he wanted to "beat the devil out of her."
The witness, Christina Aviles, claimed that she tried to get help for the Academy Award-winning actor's granddaughter, however she was unable to do it in time. According to the Daily Net, the witness recalled that E'Dena had pleaded with her killer as he was attacking her.
"Why are you doing this?" she asked as Lamar stabbed her to death on the street. She was stabbed 25 times in the Washington Heights area of upper Manhattan on August 16, 2015, early in the morning. It was later confirmed that Lamar, who has a history of drug abuse, was high on cocaine the night before the murder.
During her time on the stand, Christina, who called 911 and reported the horrific crime, said that she saw Lamar startling E'Dena on the street to prevent her from trying to stand up. The nursing student was quoted as saying, "They were arguing. She was on the floor, and he was on top of her, restraining her, stopping her from getting loose from his grip."
"He was trying to keep her down. … I proceeded to call the cops. He was yelling things about releasing the devil out of her. And then he pulled out a knife, and then he proceeded to stab her multiple times." The witness recalls feeling shocked at watching the attacker pull out a knife in a crazed fit.
She said: "I don’t know where it came from," before reflecting on how the victim "flipped" from her stomach to her back as she was stabbed repeatedly.
"There was multiple stabs. The back, and then on the front of her chest and her neck. She was on her stomach, and then she somehow flipped over, and he stabbed her on the chest. She was trying to get away from him by pushing him and kicking him," she said.
E'Dena was the granddaughter of Jeanette Adair Bradshaw, who is Morgan's first wife. He had adopted E'Dena's mother when he got married to Jeanette and had shared a special bond with the victim, often taking her along for red carpet events.
He had even bought her a $780,000 apartment, in which she was living until her final days with her then-boyfriend and murderer Lamar.
