Tragic: Pregnant Former Reality Star Found Dead On NYC Sidewalk

McHenry, a Stanford graduate, tried her hand at reality TV a few years ago when she helped produce her childhood friend EJ Johnson's "Rich Kids" spinoff "EJNYC".

Reality star Lyric McHenry has died.

According to the New York Daily News, McHenry, 26, was found dead and sprawled out on a sidewalk "in a desolate part of the Bronx", in New York City.

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. The Medical Examiner will determine the cause of death.

McHenry was described as EJ's "best friend since birth" when it was revealed she was cast in his NY spin-off from Rich Kids of Beverly Hills. Police say there were no obvious signs of trauma.

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

The reality star was reportedly celebrating her birthday on Monday night and posted several stories on her social media pages chronicling her night on the town.

The NYPD would not confirm her identity pending notification of next of kin. In videos on her Instagram Story, McHenry was at The Frederick Hotel, the Soho Grand Hotel and the Dream Hotel, and filmed a smiling video of herself in a bathroom wearing a pink dress.

Her sister, model and photographer, Maya McHenry, also joined in on the celebrations.

McHenry was said to have had drugs on her, possibly cocaine.

EJNYC premiered on E! in 2016 and lasted for one season, starring Magic Johnson's son, EJ Johnson.

"Happy birthday to my best friend who has strutted with my in princess gowns since day 1", 26-year-old Johnson gushed on Instagram.
