Earlier this week, 26-year-old reality star Lyric McHenry was found dead on a Bronx sidewalk. According to the New York Daily News, she was found with a small bag of cocaine.
While it was reported that McHenry was five months pregnant, her family was not aware she was expecting. Family spokeswoman Edna Sims Porter told DailyMail.com, “She never told any of her family members that she was pregnant. We’re all baffled because you don’t even see a baby bump. Twenty weeks, that’s five months right? It seems like she would be showing.”
Porter insisted, “I’ve seen the police report and I talked to the police about that, and they said to me, ‘That was from someone that we interviewed.’ That’s one of the things we’re going to find out the details about.”
According to Porter, McHenry’s family is doubting the pregnancy, since they didn’t see a baby bump.
An autopsy has been performed on McHenry to determine her cause of death. The case is “pending determination at this time.”
After news of her death, her family said in a statement to People magazine, “The McHenry Family deeply appreciates the many communications of support from Lyric’s many friends upon learning of her untimely death at approximately 6:00 AM the morning of August 14th, 2018. Despite the speculation in earlier reports, at this point in time the cause of Lyric’s death has yet to be determined.”
A funeral service will be held in Los Angeles.
