Lyric McHenry dead: EJNYC star dies aged 26 at 20 weeks pregnant

According to the New York Daily News, McHenry, who appeared alongside Magic Johnson's son, EJ Johnson, on the 2016 E! show "EJNYC", was found on a sidewalk in the Bronx at around 5 a.m.

So tragic. Former reality star Lyric McHenry has been found dead above a Bronx expressway with no trousers on and allegedly in possession of cocaine.

"Lyric McHenry, 26, was found sprawled out on the sidewalk above the Major Deegan Expressway at Undercliff Avenue and Boscobel Place in Highbridge at about 5am", authorities told Us Weekly.

Another source told New York Daily News that McHenry, a Stanford University graduate, was dressed in a pyjama top and not wearing trousers when she was discovered.

The medical examiner will determine McHenry's cause of death at a later date, and the investigation remains ongoing. According to People, McHenry was 20 weeks pregnant. A ziplock bag of what appeared to be cocaine was allegedly found near her body. Police say there were no obvious signs of trauma.

Her sister Maya McHenry joined in on the celebrations.

Police noted bruising on her knees, but no other injuries.

Manigault Newman says she has more recordings. "First of all, he is known to be an entertainer, to exaggerate", she said. The Trump campaign is a private entity and could legitimately ask employees to sign such agreements.


The NYPD would not confirm her identity pending notification of next of kin.

The final video she posted shows McHenry with her arm around a man, the Manhattan skyline behind her.

McHenry shared a video of herself on Instagram just hours before she was found, celebrating her 26th birthday with friends.

She even has a photo of herself standing next to former First Lady Michelle Obama on her Instagram page.

The family of Internet star Lyric McHenry found out about her tragic passing online rather than from their own inner circle, RadarOnline.com learned exclusively.

"Happy birthday to my best friend who has strutted with my in princess gowns since day 1", 26-year-old Johnson gushed on Instagram. "I love you ❤️ #leoseason #teamthis".
