Tragic: Pregnant Former Reality Star Found Dead On NYC Sidewalk

Lyric McHenry

McHenry, 26, was discovered dead Tuesday after a suspected overdose. And she was allegedly five months pregnant.

ET has learned that, on Tuesday morning, police found a 26-year-old woman unconscious and unresponsive, lying on the sidewalk in the vicinity of Undercliff Avenue and Boscobel Place in New York City.

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". According to multiple reports, a small Ziploc bag of cocaine was found on McHenry's body. An autopsy will be conducted to determine the cause of death.

McHenry was constantly posting photos of herself living what seemed to be a fabulous life and often posed with her pal, EJ Johnson.

Lyric's mother Jennifer had posted a sweet birthday message for her daughter last week on Instagram, writing, "Happy 26 years my lovely princess Lyric Leigh".

McHenry first posted a boomerang of a chessboard at The Frederick Hotel in Tribeca, before she moved to the Soho Grand Hotel.

It appears that McHenry had been celebrating her birthday in the hours before her death.

One snap showed off her male companion's suit while another showed them on a rooftop, holding drinks as he happily exclaimed 'It's your birthday!' while she blew a kiss to the camera. Why does she look so bomb?

EJNYC lasted for one season E! and featured EJ and a slew of close friends in Manhattan.

On Monday night, McHenry had taken to her Instagram Story to upload videos of her birthday celebrations out at The Frederick Hotel, SoHo Grand Hotel and Dream Downtown in NY.

According to the New York Post, she apparently had drugs on her. From June 2008 to August 2011, the outlet reported that McHenry worked as a fundraising intern for Barack Obama's presidential campaign.
