Pregnant TV star Lyric McHenry, 26, found dead on pavement with cocaine and no pants on

Lyric McHenry, 26, was found without any underwear on and had traces of cocaine on her body, US polices officers confirmed tonight.

The reality beauty, who appeared on E!’s EJNYC, was found collapsed on a pavement in the Bronx.

She was wearing a top but had no trousers or pants on.

Lyric, who was best pals with Magic Johnson's son EJ Johnson, is believed to have died from a suspected drugs overdose.

The New York Daily News say police have now scheduled an autopsy to try and work out how Lyric, who was believed to be 20 weeks pregnant, died.



From her social media accounts, Lyric had celebrating her birthday on the evening before she died.

She posted a number of pictures of herself and pals partying in Manhattan.

In one she posted a picture of her dinner at the The Frederick Hotel in Tribeca and told her pals: “This is where my heart is.”

From there she headed to a swanky hotel in Chelsea and partied with her friends, including her sister Maya who appeared on EJ Johnson's reality show.




Lyric graduated from Stanford before moving into TV and later production.

She worked on Barack Obama’s presidential campaign and last year posted a picture of herself hugging his wife Michelle.

Lyric captioned the picture: “Working for this campaign made my awkward stage at 15 so much doper.

“Thank you to the Obamas for inspiring us, leading with love and intellect, bringing art and artists to the White House, and also Sasha and Malia.”

A page from her school dedicated to its alumni describes Lyric as an “an extremely passionate History and English student”.

She is reported to have “founded the Young Democrats Club” during her time there.

Her stunned fans paid tribute to her this evening as the news started to spread.
