Pregnant Reality Star Lyric McHenry Found Dead On Sidewalk With Drugs

Reality star Lyric McHenry is dead. She was found dead Tuesday morning in New York City.

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.

Authorities said that McHenry was found wearing a pajama top and underwear, but no pants.

McHenry, who reportedly was 20 weeks pregnant, was transported to Bronx-Lebanon Hospital where she died. According to reports she apparently had drugs on her.

A New York Police Department spokesperson told Fox News a 26-year-old woman was found "unconscious and unresponsive" on the sidewalk in the vicinity of Undercliff Avenue and Boscobel Place at approximately 5:05 a.m. on Tuesday.

Emergency Medical Services responded to the location and transported the woman to Bronx-Lebanon Hospital, where she was pronounced dead, according to the NYPD spokesperson. No obvious signs of trauma were observed.

The Medical Examiner will determine the cause of death and the investigation remains ongoing.

McHenry's reported death came just hours after she seemed to be celebrating her birthday. The reality star, who turned 26 on August 6, posted videos to Instagram showing her out at the Frederick Hotel, the SoHo Grand and Dream Downtown in Manhattan.

In her final clip, which she posted around 1 a.m., she was seen sitting next to a male friend as she blew a kiss to the camera.
