NY Post reports that Morgan Freeman’s dying granddaughter gasped to her killer, “Why are you doing this?” as he knifed her in the middle of a Manhattan street, a witness revealed Tuesday— adding that she and her friends were too scared to intervene.
Cristina Aviles, a 22-year-old nursing student, said she was walking with a group of friends around 2:50 a.m. August 16th, 2018, when they came upon E’Dena Hines, 33, and her live-in boyfriend, Lamar Davenport, 30, on 162nd Street in Washington Heights.
“They were arguing. She was on the [ground], and he was on top of her, restraining her, stopping her from getting loose from his grip,” Aviles said.
“I proceeded to call the cops,” Aviles said. “He was yelling things about releasing the devil out of her. And then he pulled out a knife.
“There was multiple stabs — the back, and then on the front of her chest and her neck,” Aviles said, describing how the killer raised the knife to the level of his forehead before bringing it down again into Hines each time.
“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.
“And then he stopped after she was still.”
