Murdered Baby Was Curry's

Funerals set for Saturday

CHICAGO -- 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, the newspaper reported.

Though police are still looking for who killed them, funerals for Henry and her 10-month-old daughter, Ava, have been scheduled.

Services will be held 11 a.m. Saturday at Calvary Baptist Church, at 801 E. Glenwood Dyer Rd., in Glenwood.

A viewing will be held before the service beginning at 10 a.m., and a wake will be held Friday at the church between 6 and 9 p.m., a family spokeswoman said.
