The 3 year old son of New York Knicks star Eddy Curry reportedly witnessed the murder of his mother and baby sister at a Chicago apartment yesterday (January 24)
According to The New York Daily News, Curry’s former girlfriend Nova Henry, 24, was found shot dead along with her 9-month-old daughter, Ava, by Henry's mother at their apartment Saturday evening.
Curry's son was found in the apartment unharmed.
Police said that the killer is a "known acquaintance". Henry had filed a restraining order against her boyfriend but police didn’t say if he has been questioned.
Curry received the bad news after his team played the Philadelphia 76ers last night and was described as "despondent" and "distraught".
Curry has had a trying time in the past few months. The basketball player has only played one game this season due to a knee injury and his former driver sued him two weeks ago claiming that Curry made sexual advances towards him and flashed a gun at him twice.
