What Really Happened to Lyric McHenry?

Her father claims that once she became helpless and endangered the decision to not assist her amounts to murder.

July 14, 2020

In August 2018 aspiring filmmaker and Hollywood royalty Lyric McHenry was found dead on a Bronx overpass just hours after her 26th birthday party. She had flown to New York from Los Angeles to celebrate with her sister Maya at Dream, an upscale club. When she left, she eventually got in a vehicle with three men, one of whom would eventually confess to being with her when she died. A coroner's report concluded that she overdosed on heroin and cocaine, and that she was pregnant. While the man who confessed, Alexis Meija-Ramirez, was charged with concealment of a human corpse and tampering with physical evidence, the identity of the other two men is still a mystery.
