Pregnant Reality Star Lyric McHenry Found Dead At 26

Pregnant Reality Star Lyric McHenry Found Dead At 26

Lyric McHenry, who appeared on E!'s EJNYC, died Tuesday morning of a suspected drug overdose, according to multiple reports.

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 discovered above the Major Deegan Expressway in the Bronx around 5am on Tuesday after a night of barhopping across Manhattan for her birthday.

She was reportedly wearing only a pajama top and underwear and possessed a small bag of cocaine when she was found alive but unconscious and unresponsive on the street.

"McHenry was rushed to Bronx-Lebanon Hospital, where she died. Police are investigating, the matter is ongoing", authorities said in a statement.

McHenry's co-star on EJNYC, EJ Johnson, was also one of the first to wish her a happy birthday earlier this month. No obvious signs of trauma were observed.


Police sources said McHenry (pictured hours before her death) was 20 weeks pregnant and in possession of cocaine.

The NY Daily News reports that the Stanford University alum was found "sprawled out on the sidewalk" and that her "knees were bruised, but there were no other visible injuries", according to their sources.

The NYPD would not confirm her identity as it is pending proper family notification.

She also shared video of herself sitting at an outside venue beside a male friend, who was documented saying "it's her birthday" as she blew a kiss to the camera with the N.Y.C. skyline behind them.

The night before her body was found, it appeared she was celebrating her birthday. The show lasted one season on E!

"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 more than any words or gifts can express!
