NEW YORK (AP) — Actor Morgan Freeman is mourning the death of his granddaughter. She was found stabbed to death Sunday on a Manhattan street.

Police responding to a 911 call at about 3 a.m. found 33-year-old Edena Hines lying on the street with multiple stab wounds to the chest. She was pronounced dead at Harlem Hospital.

A 30-year-old man was taken into police custody at the scene — in front of Hines’ apartment on West 162nd Street.

Freeman issued a statement saying that “The world will never know her artistry and talent, and how much she had to offer.” Hines had studied acting and was involved with teaching urban youth. She is the granddaughter of Freeman’s first wife.

No charges have been filed. Police are investigating the stabbing.
