According to the New York Daily News, McHenry, who was 20 weeks pregnant, was dressed in a pajama top and no trousers, but was wearing underwear.

According to authorities, a small ziplock bag containing cocaine was found on her. She was taken to Bronx-Lebanon Hospital where she reportedly died.

According to reports, the 26-year-old pal of EJ Johnson was 20 weeks pregnant and was discovered around 5 a.m. above the Major Deegan Expressway at Undercliff Ave. and Boscobel Place in Highbridge in the Bronx.

Lyric was also very close to EJ Johnson, the son of Magic Johnson, who she starred alongside on E!'s EJNYC.

The night before her body was found, it appeared she was celebrating her birthday. "It's a joke, okay", Maya said as McHenry smiled into the camera while sitting beside the same male friend.

According to Us Weekly, McHenry, who graduated from Stanford University, was a freelance writer and producer.

He wrote: 'Happy birthday to my best friend who has strutted with my in princess gowns since day 1 @lyric_leigh words can not express how much I love and appreciate you in my life.
