A rock band returning to Britain in their tour bus after performing in France found an illegal immigrant hidden in a guitar case.

The members of Wille and the Bandits, a blues rock three piece, were filling up their vehicle just outside of Calais on Sunday when they discovered two migrants in the back.

One of the pair had secreted himself inside a case for one of the band's instruments.
Posting on their Facebook page the band said:

Wille and the Bandits, based in Cornwall, has been named as one of Britain's brightest young bands and were voted into the top 10 "must see" acts at Glastonbury 2014 by BBC Radio One.

After members announced they were to go on a BBC local radio station to tell the story of their encounter, one friend Jan Davies posted: "Fame, but for all the wrong reasons!"

This 920-pound gator set an Alabama hunting record!

Posted by Teddy Mitrosilis

How do football fans in Alabama spend the last couple weeks of the offseason while everyone is worrying about two-deeps and QB battles?

By hunting massive gators.

Check this guy out:

That's a 920-pound gator caught recently in Lake Eufaula and is a new record for the lake at 13 feet and six inches (records are determined by length not weight).
Scott Evans and Jeff and Justin Gregg hauled in the massive alligator on the first night of gator hunting season in Alabama and needed the help of three other men to secure it.
"We are still sore (four days later)," Evans told al.com." It was hard enough to get the head and shoulders in the boat."

It's believed to be the second heaviest alligator ever hunted in Alabama behind a 1,011.5-pound gator caught last year that set a world record at 15 feet and nine inches (that gator cheated, though, with approximately 115 pounds of that coming from a deer in the gator's stomach).

As all of you are probably wondering: What the hell do you do after catching a 920-pound alligator?
Throw a huge Labor Day cookout with 250 pounds of meat. "It won't go to waste," Evans said.

Justin Wilson: IndyCar Driver has died following injuries sustained at Pocono Raceway

Wilson, 37, died following injuries sustained at Pocono Raceway in Long Pond, Penn., IndyCar announced Monday. Wilson started 173 races in the Champ Car and the IndyCar Series from 2004-2015.

LONG POND, PA. - IndyCar driver Justin Wilson was in a coma and in critical condition after sustaining a head injury when he was hit by a large piece of debris that broke off a car Sunday in the crash-filled race at Pocono Raceway.
IndyCar released the information on Wilson's condition Sunday night and said he was undergoing further evaluation at Lehigh Valley Health Network Cedar Crest Hospital in Allentown.
The debris broke off Sage Karam's car when Karam spun into the wall. Wilson's car veered left and directly into an interior wall. Wilson was swarmed by the safety crew and airlifted by helicopter.
"It's just a tough one right now," said Michael Andretti, car owner for Wilson and race winner Ryan Hunter-Reay. "Our thoughts and prayers are with Justin right now. We're going to see. Hopefully, he's OK."
IndyCar had a subdued victory lane and Hunter-Reay was not sprayed with the traditional confetti.
The American said his thoughts were only with Wilson, an extremely popular driver in the paddock who speaks on behalf of his peers regarding safety and competition.
"All I know is that he was unconscious, he was not responding and he was airlifted," Hunter-Reay said. "That's all very bad. I'm very worried right now."
The accident was a grim reminder of the dangers of open-wheel racing. Indianapolis 500 winner Dan Wheldon died in 2011 after his car became ensnared in a fiery 15-car pileup, flew over another vehicle and landed in a catch at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Wheldon's head hit a post in the fence, and he died instantly.
He was the last fatality in a form of racing that saw drivers Scott Brayton (1996), Tony Renna (2003) and Paul Dana (2006), among others, die after wrecks.
Wilson's wife, Julia, was en route to Pennsylvania from their home in Colorado, while his younger brother, Stefan, also an IndyCar driver, was travelling from Indianapolis.
The race resumed after the Karam and Wilson accident with seven laps remaining and Hunter-Reay picked his way through the field. He passed Juan Pablo Montoya, Takuma Sato and then used a bold inside pass of leader Gabby Chaves to take the lead with five to go.
Chaves then appeared to have an engine failure that brought out the caution with three to go. The race ended under yellow.

Hunter-Reay tried to get an update on Wilson before the race resumed, and again before he climbed from his race-winning Honda.
"I thought Justin was OK the whole time, and I thought he was in the ambulance with Sage heading off to get a routine check," Hunter-Reay said.
Josef Newgarden was second and IndyCar points leader Montoya finished third.
Graham Rahal, who was second in the standings at the start of the race, was involved in an early crash. Montoya's cushion went from nine points to 35 with next Sunday's finale in Sonoma set to decide the title.
The finale is worth double points, and six drivers will head to California in contention for the title. 

Hunter-Reay is mathematically eliminated, but picked up his second win of the season in what's been a disappointing year for Andretti and Honda.
Hunter-Reay was one of many who was discussing safety measures --and not his win -- for the open-cockpit series.
"Maybe in the future we can work toward something that resembles a canopy," Hunter-Reay said. "Something that can give us a little bit of protection and still keep the tradition of the sport. Just to be innocent bystander like that and get hit in the head with a nose cone is a scary thought."
The 37-year-old Wilson, a native of Sheffield, England, entered this season without a full-time ride. 

He latched on with Andretti and was in the sixth of seven scheduled races with the team. The deal was put together right before the season-opening race in March and initially started as just a two-race agreement at Indianapolis.
Sponsorship was found for another five races as the season progressed, and Wilson finished a season-best second earlier this month at Mid-Ohio.
He said after the race that he raced clean and did not take any risks that would have jeopardized eventual race-winner Rahal because Rahal was part of the championship race and Wilson was not.
Wilson broke a bone in his back at Mid-Ohio in 2011. He missed the final six races of the season and wore a back brace for more than two months as he was restricted from any physical activity. The injury kept him out of the season finale at Las Vegas and the race where Wheldon died.
He broke his pelvis and suffered a bruised lung in the 2013 season finale at Fontana.
Wilson said in 2012 his injuries and Wheldon's death did nothing to change his perspective or make him question his career choice.
"I've had the conversation with Julia - this is what we do, and you try to make the best plans if that ever happens," Wilson told The Associated Press upon his return in 2012. "You've got to know the risks and work out if those risks are acceptable. To me, it's acceptable. But I'm not going to stop trying to improve it.
"All the drivers, this IndyCar, we're always trying to make it safer, but at the end of the day, it's a race car. We're racing hard, we're racing IndyCars and it's fast. When it goes wrong, it can get messy.

Additional updates to Wilson’s condition will be released when available.

'Great American Eclipse': Sky Show Will Dazzle U.S. in 2017

Two years from now, on Aug. 21, 2017, North Americans will get an opportunity to observe nature's greatest sky show.

Picture this: The day starts off bright and sunny. Then, a bit later, you begin to notice that, although it is still sunny, the day doesn't seem quite so bright. And still a little while later, it almost seems like some big storm is brewing. Then, suddenly, and without any warning, the midsummer day turns strangely dark.

A few stars come out. Birds and animals become confused and quickly head home to sleep. Night insects begin to chirp. All around the horizon, there is a strange yellow-orange glow resembling a weird sunset. And meanwhile, up in the sky where the sun should be, there appears instead a jet-black disk surrounded by a softly glowing halo.

Then, just as suddenly, the sky brightens up. The stars disappear, birds and animals awaken, and the sun returns.

What you have just witnessed is a total eclipse of the sun.

This total solar eclipse of 2017 will be the first time in nearly four decades that such an event will be visible so close to home. "Close," of course, is a relative term. But for most Americans, this spectacular phenomenon will occur literally in their own backyards.

Contrary to popular belief, total solar eclipses are not particularly rare. Astronomers predict 68 to take place during the present century — one about every 17.6 months. On such occasions, the moon casts its dark, slender cone of shadow (called the umbra) upon the Earth's surface.

Bears frolic at wild pool party in NJ

A North Jersey pool party got a little wild because the guest turned out to be a family of bears.

The Basso family who owns the pool in Rockaway Township, Morris County, filmed a mama bear and five of her cubs cooling off in their backyard earlier this week.

"I thought they would get a drink or just drink out of it for a minute and then move on, but they pretty much started climbing," said Tim Basso.

"My first thought was really, where is the dog and where are the kids?"

With everyone accounted for, the Bassos watched safely inside while Tim's wife started recording the video.

The cubs splashed around and checked out the playset.

"They came in, they experienced the pool, they got it, they seemed to enjoy themselves. They did a little bit of damage on the pool toys and floats and whatnot, but all in all I don't think it was a terrible experience," Tim said.

The family called 911, but there was little police could do.

The bears left on their own after an hour.

London's sky pool will let the super-rich swim through the air

Although the sky pool is certainly architecturally striking, the project can also be seen as symbolic of London's housing problems, with developers in the city often promising to build affordable homes in central areas only to focus on luxury apartments instead. Embassy Gardens itself is part of the larger Nine Elms development in southwest London, which is intended to regenerate the inner-city district of Battersea. Instead, say critics, homes in the $23 billion development are being marketed primarily to wealthy buyers in Asia and the Middle East, with locals simply priced out of the market.

Men claim to find Nazi train loaded with treasure in Poland

WARSAW, Poland (AP) — Two men in Poland claim they have found a legendary Nazi train that according to local lore was loaded with gold, gems and valuable art and vanished into a system of secret tunnels as the Germans fled advancing Soviet forces at the end of World War II.

Historians say the existence of the train has never been conclusively proven, but authorities are not passing up this chance at possibly recovering treasures that have sparked the imaginations of local people for decades.

"We believe that a train has been found. We are taking this seriously," Marika Tokarska, an official in the southwestern Polish district of Walbrzych, told The Associated Press on Thursday.

She said her office has received two letters this month from a law firm representing the men, a Pole and a German who are remaining anonymous, saying they are seeking 10 percent of the value of the train's contents for revealing its location.

She says that hiring a law firm gives credibility to the two men's claims, as do indications that they are familiar with the train's contents.

Already, the district governor has convened a meeting of firefighters, police and others to explore how they can safely handle the train if it is located. Not only could it be armed with explosives, but methane gas underground could add to the risk of an explosion.

"It could be dangerous," Tokarska said.

The train is said to have gone missing in May 1945. Legend says it was armed and loaded with treasure and disappeared after entering a complex of tunnels under the Owl Mountains, a secret project known as "Riese" — or Giant — which the Nazis never finished. At the time the area belonged to Germany but now lies in Poland.

SpaceLiner: travel between Europe and Australia in under 90 minutes

By Mark Prigg For Dailymail.com
A hypersonic SpaceLiner capable of reaching 20 times the speed of sound and transporting passengers from London to Sydney in 90 minutes could be with us by 2030.


The two-stage, fully reusable system – consists of a passenger orbiter and a booster stage with an environmentally friendly rocket propulsion system fuelled by liquid hydrogen and oxygen. 

The engines will accelerate the SpaceLiner to more than 20 times the speed of sound in less than 10 minutes.  

Following separation the spacecraft will glide hypersonically at Mach 20-plus, at altitudes above 80 km, toward its destination.

German aerospace bosses first proposed the plan in 2007 before shelving it - but now say it could happen within decades if they can raise $33 billion.

It would mean a journey between Europe and the U.S. would be reduced to just over 60 minutes - at a price.

Martin Sippel, leader of the SpaceLiner project at DLR's Space Launcher Systems Analysis group in Bremen, Germany, told Aviation Week at the American Institute of Aerodynamics and Astronautics Space Planes and Hypersonics Conference in Glasgow, Scotland, the scheme could now move ahead.

'We want to come up with a development road map,' he said.

'We need a mission definition and this year we will do that in Phase A.' 

To make it more viable, DLR has also outlined a 100-seat version capable of 1-hr. intercontinental and transpacific missions.

It is expected tickets would cost hundreds of thousands of dollars.  

'We have several hundred million passengers traveling intercontinental distances each year and we think space should have a tiny portion of that,' says Sippel. 

'But even if the share will only be 0.2% why should we do it? From a space perspective that's a potentially huge impact.'

Don McLean reveals meaning of ‘American Pie’ — and sells lyrics for $1.2 million

The music died because Buddy Holly merely wanted what every touring musician wants: to do laundry.

Shoved into unheated buses on a “Winter Dance Party” tour in 1959, Holly — tired of rattling through the Midwest with dirty clothes — chartered a plane on Feb. 3 to fly from Clear Lake, Iowa, to Fargo, N.D., where he hoped he could make an appointment with a washing machine. 

Joining him on the plane were Ritchie Valens and, after future country star Waylon Jennings gave up his seat, J.P. Richardson, a.k.a. “the Big Bopper.” Taking off in bad weather with a pilot not certified to do so, the plane crashed, killing everyone aboard. The toll was incalculable: The singers of “Peggy Sue” and “Come On Let’s Go” and “Donna” and “La Bamba” were dead. Holly was just 22; incredibly, Valens was just 17. Rock and roll would never be the same.

Thirteen years later, Don McLean wrote a song about this tragedy: “American Pie,” an 8½-minute epic with an iconic lyric about “the day the music died.” Now, the original 16-page working manuscript of the lyrics has been sold at auction for $1.2 million.

“I thought it would be interesting as I reach age 70 to release this work product on the song American Pie so that anyone who might be interested will learn that this song was not a parlor game,” McLean said in a Christie’s catalogue ahead of the sale. “It was an indescribable photograph of America that I tried to capture in words and music.”

That photograph was always a little bit blurry. At more than 800 words, the meaning of “American Pie” proved elusive even for a generation used to parsing inscrutable Bob Dylan and Beatles lyrics. McLean has said the song was inspired by the 1959 plane crash, but has been cagey about other details.

“People ask me if I left the lyrics open to ambiguity,” McLean said in an early interview, as the Guardian reported. “Of course I did. I wanted to make a whole series of complex statements. The lyrics had to do with the state of society at the time.”

But what state was that? It seemed like the song’s cast of characters — which include a jester, a king, a queen, good ol’ boys drinking whiskey and rye as well as “Miss American Pie” herself — were meant to represent real people. The song includes references to Karl Marx; Vladimir Ilyich Lenin (or, more likely, John Lennon); the Fab Four; the Byrds; James Dean; Charles Manson; the Rolling Stones; the “widowed bride,” Jackie Kennedy; and the Vietnam War.

What does it all mean? Just what a song about the day the music died seems like it might be about: the end of the American Dream.

“Basically in ‘American Pie,’ things are heading in the wrong direction,” he told Christie’s, as the Newcastle Herald reported. “It is becoming less idyllic. I don’t know whether you consider that wrong or right but it is a morality song in a sense.”

As ideals of the 1960s turned into the cynicism of the 1970s, this feeling was widespread enough to send the song to No. 1 in 1972.

“American Pie is the accessible farewell to the Fifties and Sixties,” Guardian music critic Alexis Petridis wrote in the catalogue. “Bob Dylan talked to the counterculture in dense, cryptic, apocalyptic terms. But Don McLean says similar ominous things in a pop language that a mainstream listener could understand. The chorus is so good that it lets you wallow in the confusion and wistfulness of that moment, and be comforted at the same time. It’s bubblegum Dylan, really.” (Perhaps of note: Dylan’s manuscript of “Like a Rolling Stone” sold for $2 million in June, besting McLean’s measly $1.2 million.)

Forty-four years after “American Pie’s” release, McLean, 69, wasn’t much more positive about the state of the world than he was a generation ago.

“I was around in 1970 and now I am around in 2015,” McLean said, as People Magazine reported. “There is no poetry and very little romance in anything anymore, so it is really like the last phase of ‘American Pie.’ ”

Nor was there romance in McLean’s decision to sell the manuscript. He did it for the dough.

“I’m going to be 70 this year,” he told Rolling Stone. “I have two children and a wife, and none of them seem to have the mercantile instinct. I want to get the best deal that I can for them. It’s time.”

Ahead of the Christie’s auction, McLean did offer some advice to all the budding Don McLeans out here.

“I would say to young songwriters who are starting out to immerse yourself in beautiful music and beautiful lyrics and think about every word you say in a song,” he said.

Here are the words of “American Pie” as transcribed by azlyrics.com, the savior of cover bands everywhere. (Note: AZ creatively transcribes what many hear as “whiskey and rye” as “whiskey in Rye.”)

A long, long time ago
I can still remember how that music used to make me smile
And I knew if I had my chance
That I could make those people dance
And maybe they’d be happy for a while

But February made me shiver
With every paper I’d deliver
Bad news on the doorstep
I couldn’t take one more step

‘Cause the players tried to take the field
The marching band refused to yield
Do you recall what was revealed
The day the music died?

We started singin’ bye-bye, Miss American Pie
Drove my Chevy to the levee, but the levee was dry
Them good old boys were drinkin’ whiskey in Rye
And singin’ “This’ll be the day that I die
This’ll be the day that I die”

[Verse 1]
Did you write the book of love
And do you have faith in God above
If the Bible tells you so?
Now do you believe in rock and roll?
Can music save your mortal soul?
And can you teach me how to dance real slow?

Well, I know that you’re in love with him
‘Cause I saw you dancin’ in the gym
You both kicked off your shoes
Man, I dig those rhythm and blues

I was a lonely teenage broncin’ buck
With a pink carnation and a pickup truck
But I knew I was out of luck
The day the music died

I started singin’ bye-bye, Miss American Pie
Drove my Chevy to the levee, but the levee was dry
Them good old boys were drinkin’ whiskey in Rye
Singin’ “This’ll be the day that I die
This’ll be the day that I die”

[Verse 2]
Now for 10 years we’ve been on our own
And moss grows fat on a rollin’ stone
But that’s not how it used to be
When the jester sang for the king and queen
In a coat he borrowed from James Dean
And a voice that came from you and me

Oh, and while the king was looking down
The jester stole his thorny crown
The courtroom was adjourned
No verdict was returned

And while Lenin read a book on Marx
The quartet practiced in the park
And we sang dirges in the dark
The day the music died

We were singin’ bye-bye, Miss American Pie
Drove my Chevy to the levee, but the levee was dry
Them good old boys were drinkin’ whiskey in Rye
Singin’ “This’ll be the day that I die
This’ll be the day that I die”

[Verse 3]
Helter skelter in a summer swelter
The birds flew off with a fallout shelter
Eight miles high and falling fast
It landed foul on the grass
The players tried for a forward pass
With the jester on the sidelines in a cast

Now the halftime air was sweet perfume
While the sergeants played a marching tune
We all got up to dance
Oh, but we never got the chance

I went down to the sacred store
Where I’d heard the music years before
But the man there said the music wouldn’t play

And in the streets, the children screamed
The lovers cried and the poets dreamed
But not a word was spoken
The church bells all were broken

And the three men I admire most
The Father, Son and the Holy Ghost
They caught the last train for the coast
The day the music died

And they were singin’ bye-bye, Miss American Pie
Drove my Chevy to the levee, but the levee was dry
And them good old boys were drinkin’ whiskey in Rye
Singin’ “This’ll be the day that I die
This’ll be the day that I die”

They were singin’ bye-bye, Miss American Pie
Drove my Chevy to the levee, but the levee was dry
Them good old boys were drinkin’ whiskey in Rye
And singin’ “This’ll be the day that I die”

[Verse 4]
Oh, and there we were all in one place
A generation lost in space
With no time left to start again
So come on, Jack be nimble, Jack be quick
Jack Flash sat on a candlestick
‘Cause fire is the devil’s only friend

Oh, and as I watched him on the stage
My hands were clenched in fists of rage
No angel born in Hell
Could break that Satan’s spell

And as the flames climbed high into the night
To light the sacrificial rite
I saw Satan laughing with delight
The day the music died

He was singin’ bye-bye, Miss American Pie
Drove my Chevy to the levee, but the levee was dry
Them good old boys were drinkin’ whiskey in Rye
And singin’ “This’ll be the day that I die
This’ll be the day that I die”

I met a girl who sang the blues
And I asked her for some happy news
But she just smiled and turned away

I can’t remember if I cried
When I read about his widowed bride
But something touched me deep inside
The day the music died

So bye-bye, Miss American Pie
Drove my Chevy to the levee, but the levee was dry
And them good old boys were drinkin’ whiskey in Rye
Singin’ “This’ll be the day that I die
This’ll be the day that I die”

Beloved ‘Baltimore Batman’ who visited sick kids killed along highway

A man who dressed as Batman to visit sick children in hospitals was killed on a highway in Maryland Sunday night.

According to The Washington Post, Lenny B. Robinson, 51, had pulled his custom-made Lamborghini “Batmobile” off to the side of the road after the car had broken down when he was coming home from a car show in West Virginia. When Robinson got out of the car to see what was wrong, another car hit the batmobile, which then struck and killed Robinson.

Robinson became a viral sensation after the dashboard video of an encounter he had with the police went viral. The cop had pulled over Robinson’s Batmobile because its plates were invalid. They displayed only the Bat symbol.

After leading a successful career in the cleaning business, Robinson saved up enough to purchase his one incredibly realistic Batmobile and Batman costume. He then devoted himself to visiting children with cancer in hospitals all across Maryland and Washington D.C., bringing smiles to the faces of the kids who got to meet their favorite superhero.

Robinson worked closely with Hope for Henry, a D.C. organization that helps sick children, the Washington Post reported. Founded by Laurie Strongin and Allen Goldberg after their son Henry died from a rare disease, the group threw super hero parties in hospitals. Batman was always the star.

“He made so many kids so happy,” Strongin told the Post. “When I asked him to do anything, he always said yes.”

Tebow runs for a score, Eagles beat Colts 36-10


Tim Tebow got a warm Philly welcome.

Tebow threw for 69 yards and ran for a touchdown in his first game in two years, Kenjon Barner returned a punt 92 yards for a touchdown and ran for a score and the Philadelphia Eagles beat the Indianapolis Colts 36-10 Sunday.

Tebow got a standing ovation when he entered midway through the third quarter and the crowd roared so loud when his name was introduced he had to quiet them down because he was taking the snap in a shotgun.

"It's very humbling, a blessing. I appreciated it," Tebow said.

Tebow completed his first four passes and fans chanted "Tebow! Tebow!" during his first series.

He dove into the pylon on a 7-yard TD run late in the fourth quarter and finished with 15 yards 
rushing on four carries. He completed 6 of 12 passes and was sacked twice.

"I liked how Timmy threw it," Eagles coach Chip Kelly said.

Tebow hadn't played since the 2013 preseason with New England until the Eagles (1-0) signed him to compete with Matt Barkley for the No. 3 spot behind Sam Bradford and Mark Sanchez. Barkley was 12 of 20 for 192 yards and one interception.

"Did some things decent and some things we have to work on," Tebow said. "I have to be more consistent."

Quarterback Andrew Luck was 5 of 6 for 43 yards for the Colts (0-1).

Other observations from the game:


Playing their first game since losing to the Patriots in the AFC championship game that began the Deflategate saga, the Colts didn't seem as if they prepared much for Philadelphia's up-tempo offense and they were missing several defensive starters. But making sure players get reps is more important than scheming for a unique offense they're not going to see in the regular season.


Several Colts starters didn't play, including WR T.Y. Hilton, RB Frank Gore and CB Vontae Davis. The Eagles were missing LBs DeMeco Ryans, Kiko Alonso and Mychal Kendricks along with Bradford and All-Pro running back DeMarco Murray.


Colts: WR Phillip Dorsett had four catches for 51 yards, but lost a fumble. RB Josh Robinson ran for 44 yards and one TD.

Eagles: WR Nelson Agholor had three catches for 57 yards, including a 39-yard TD. He leaped to make the catch, spun around a defender and sprinted into the end zone. CB Eric Rowe forced a fumble.


Colts: Matt Hasselbeck was 8 of 17 for 72 yards. Bryan Bennett was 4 of 16 for 35 yards and two interceptions.

Eagles: Sanchez was 2 for 7 for 52 yards. He underthrew a wide-open Trey Burton on Philadelphia's first play from scrimmage and later overthrew Jordan Matthews on what would've been a TD.


Colts RG Todd Herremans and LB Trent Cole returned to Philadelphia for the first time since they were released after playing 10 seasons for the Eagles. Both received a standing ovation when shown on the video screen. One fan carried a sign that read: "Welcome back to Philly, Frank Gore." Gore had agreed to sign with the Eagles in free agency only to change his mind a day later and go to Indianapolis.


Colts: WR Andre Johnson had one catch for 9 yards in the seven-time Pro Bowl pick's first game since leaving Houston.

Eagles: WR Miles Austin had two catches for 41 yards. RB Ryan Mathews had 18 yards rushing on two carries.


Colts rookie CB D'Joun Smith sustained a concussion in the first half.


Eagles LB Marcus Smith, a first-round pick who barely played last year, made his presence felt in the first quarter. In one series, he helped stuff a run, got his hand in the QB's face and forced an incompletion with solid coverage on a tight end.


Eagles Pro Bowl K Cody Parkey missed one extra point and one field goal. "Let's not hit the panic button," Kelly said.


Sanchez looked like Michael Vick, eluding a sack and scrambling for 10 yards on third-and-5 to keep Philadelphia's first TD drive going.

Morgan Freeman’s granddaughter fatally stabbed in ‘exorcism’

Morgan Freeman’s granddaughter fatally stabbed in ‘exorcism’

The granddaughter of acclaimed actor Morgan Freeman was stabbed to death on a Manhattan sidewalk early Sunday during what law enforcement sources and witnesses described as an “exorcism” at the hands of her ranting boyfriend.

“Get out, devils! I cast you out, devils! In the name of Jesus Christ, I cast you out!” the killer yelled as he plunged a hunting knife into 33-year-old E’Dena Hines’ chest, according to George Hudacko, who witnessed the 3 a.m. attack from his apartment window in Washington Heights.

Hines, an actress who had appeared on Broadway and on red carpets at Freeman’s side, was stabbed 16 times, officials said.

“The girl was making a lot of noise, screaming,” Hudacko said, adding. “I called 911 — I was begging them to come.”

Hines — whose grandmother Jeanette Adair Bradshaw was Freeman’s first wife — was attacked on West 162nd Street near St. Nicholas Avenue, a few buildings from where she lived, cops and sources said.

Her live-in boyfriend, Lamar Davenport, 30, was in the throes of a drug-induced psychosis when he came after her, police sources said.

“Jesus Christ is born!” he shouted maniacally over her body.

A friend who’d had dinner with Davenport and Hines just hours earlier described her as “ecstatic,” the Daily Beast reported.

“I’ve never seen E’Dena as happy as she was last night,” said the friend, Ray Rosario.

By 3 a.m., Davenport was so crazed that he continued his attack even as Hines lay lifeless on the sidewalk, one police source said.

When cops wrestled him off her, he “was still making a stabbing motion with his arm, but he had nothing in his fist — the knife was jutting out of her chest,” the police source said.

Davenport — an actor and rapper wannabe whose nickname is “Lyric” — abuses cocaine, pot and booze, and has two young children, according to law enforcement sources. Hines was not their mother.

He has six prior arrests, including for marijuana and petit larceny, the sources added.

Davenport was taken to New York-Presbyterian Hospital for a psychological evaluation, sources said.

He has been charged with murder.

Freeman, 78, issued a statement soon after the attack.

“The world will never know her artistry and talent and how much she had to offer,” the Oscar winner said. “Her star will continue to shine bright in our hearts, thoughts and prayers. May she rest in peace.”

Hines was Freeman’s granddaughter because her mother had been adopted by the star.

He was so close to Hines that in 2012, he had to quash reports that they were lovers.

Hines was a graduate of NYU’s Graduate Acting Program and played Beneatha in “A Raisin in the Sun” on Broadway in 2012.
