She graduated from Stanford University.

The dailymail reported McHenry being determined being 20 weeks pregnant- nevertheless it remained unclear whether the reality persona was aware she was expecting.

McHenry's co-star on EJNYC, EJ Johnson, was also one of the first to wish her a happy birthday earlier this month. A medical examiner will determine her cause of death.

Reality star Lyric McHenry was found dead Tuesday morning in New York City, according to multiple reports. According to the Daily News, the pregnant McHenry was only partially clothed and was in possession of cocaine, leading police to suspect a drug overdose and investigating whether she had been "dumped on the sidewalk".

Lyric McHenry, 26, was discovered above the Major Deegan Expressway in the Bronx around 5am on Tuesday after a night of barhopping across Manhattan for her birthday.

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

Radar can confirm she began her evening at the Frederick Hotel in NYC where she was celebrating her birthday.

The final upload, shared approximately three hours before she was found dead, shows her blowing a kiss to camera as a man standing beside her says: 'It's her birthday'. "Why does she look so bomb?" she said in an Instagram Stories video.

Lyric was best known for appearing on EJNYC alongside the show's main star EJ Johnson, 26.

She posted the proud moment of meeting Michelle Obama to her Instagram page with the caption: "Working for this campaign made my awkward stage at 15 so much doper".

"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". She then went on to work as an associate producer for Complex before becoming a freelance writer and producer.
