There is more bad news for New York Knicks player Eddie Curry. Just last week, he learned that his three-year-old son Noah witnessed the murderings of his ex-girlfriend Nova(Noah’s mom) and Nova’s daughter, Ava. Now paternity tests reveal that the deceased 10-month-old is indeed Eddie’s daughter.
Via Suntimes: NBA player Eddy Curry fathered the 10-month-old girl who last week was murdered alongside her mother, Curry’s ex-girlfriend Nova Henry, sources familiar with the paternity case told the Chicago Sun-Times.A confidential court document filed in September reveals a DNA test confirmed Curry as the biological father of Ava, whose last name is the same as a man questioned by police about the slayings, sources said. “The family never had a doubt of who the father is,” a spokesman for the Henry family said.
Curry, who now plays for the New York Knicks, could not be reached Wednesday, and his attorney, Kelly Saindon, did not return calls seeking comment. Nova Henry and Ava were shot to death in a condo near 15th and State on Saturday. Her 3-year-old son with Curry, Noah Henry-Curry, was found covered in blood but unhurt near his mother’s body.
Police and psychologists have interviewed Noah — with family members present and alone — about what he might have witnessed the day his mother and sister were killed. For now, the boy is with his maternal grandmother.
