Killed Girl Was Curry's Daughter

2009_01_29_henry.jpg The Sun-Times is reporting today that Nova Henry's daughter Ava, the 10-month-old girl killed this weekend along with Nova, is the biological daughter of former Bull Eddy Curry, who also fathered Nova's son Noah. Noah was found in the apartment with the bodies of his mother and sister, but was unharmed. DNA tests filed in court last fall confirmed Curry as Ava's father, though Ava carries the last name of Fred Goings, Nova's ex-boyfriend that was questioned by police and that Nova had sought an order of protection against in 2007. According to the S-T:

Curry, a former Chicago Bull and Thornwood High School standout, also has a 3-year-old son with Henry and was ordered to pay $6,000 a month in child support. Two months after Curry was determined to be Ava’s father, Curry’s child support payments to Henry increased to $15,000 a month, according to court papers.
An attorney for Henry said it's likely Noah will be placed in Curry's care. Meanwhile, a visitation for Nova and Ava will be held Friday evening at Calvary Baptist Church of Glenwood with burial service Saturday morning.
