Chris Henry, the talented but troubled Cincinnati Bengals player who was arrested 5 times in 14 months, has died of head inuries suffered when he tumbled out of the back of a pickup truck in Cincinatti in what police are calling a domestic dispute between the wide receiver and his fiancee.

Henry died at 6:36 a.m. this morning after fighting for his life for 24 hours. He was 26.

Away from the team because of a broken forearm, Henry was rushed to the hospital Wednesday after being found on a residential road.

Police say a dispute began at a home about a half-mile away, and Henry jumped into the bed of the pickup truck as his fiancee was driving away from the residence.

Police said at some point when she was driving, Henry "came out of the back of the vehicle."

    RIP Chris

    Why is that a lot of people seem to die around Christmas time. Is there a curse on the world around that time? Anyway I feel sorry that he had to die at the hands of someone he loved. So sad. May God be with his family!

    I was wondering the same thing this a.m. when I was thinking about Charlie Murphy's wife. What a sad time!!

  • laterthannever

    Maybe she was running from him? If they were having a fight she must have been trying to avoid further conflict by driving off. Him jumping in the truck instigated further conflict... could have been afraid for her life/safety.

    /speculating.

    Whatever happened, its a tragedy.

    I lost my Grandfather around Christmas one year, and we buried him on Christmas Eve. I will never forget it. It's realy sad that we see a increase in death around what is suppose to be a joyous time of year.

  • smiley

    He had a broke arm right? Jumping on back of a truck with one arm would cause him to fall....RIP his family is in my prayers

  • mrsgarcia703

    RIP Chris Henry. So sad smh...

  • http://facebook.com/cristinalex Crislex

    If they do press charges, I wonder if she knew he was in the truck bed but deliberately drove crazy to shake him off. Granted, if it is true that he jumped in the back then he shouldve considered safety first, but obviously if he fell off due to head trauma and died, then she is partially responsible.

  • Mz.Williams

    This is so sad now she has to live with this for the rest of her life. How is she going to explain to the kids what happen. So sad their in my prayers

    Thats what I was saying also.
    I know I look in my review mirror and if she had she wld have seen him back there.

    He was found in the road, meaning she left him. Only they know what happen but WE HAVE TO DO BETTER PEOPLE! Stop arguing and getting in it.

    I am not trying to start anything with you. I am not the type. Have some respect. Better yet why don't you go and read a different blog. I will not use this time as time to argue with you. I will not respond to anything further you have to say. Their is a family that is grieving and I am not going to use this as entertainment time.

    Oh this is soo sad.

    I wonder how she feels? What was the last thing she said to him? I know that's gotta be eating her up that the last thing they were doing together was fighting and now he's gone.

    @ Spinal

    Sorry for your loss. I would hate to lose anyone at anytime but not during this time of the year. I can't imagine. We are supposed to celebrate Christmas and New Year but now this family and many more are mourning death. Such a sad story.

    I also hate the news has to highlight the fact that this kid had been arrested 5 times. They do this to our black men all the time. Like there life was less important because they were in so much trouble. Jeez!

  • http://emc.com msbay

    Good Morning all!

    So young and a senseless death.May he rest in peace.
    My thoughts and prayers to the family.

  • thaspinaltruth

    @Ms. Kayla

    I feel the say way about how the media tries to brake down our black men. They did the same thing to Michael Jackson when he die. Whatever this people have done in their life God will be the judge of that. But they should at least show the families some respect. I mean he isn't even in the casket yet or better yet he probally just getting to the morgue and the already trying to make him look bad. How pathetic.

    I agree. I was just reading a report on him but thank goodness they highlighted that he had started to change and spend more time with her and the children.

    The Bengals gave him another chance and he changed. And this happened. So sad

  • chase

    RIP Chris....such a sad story!

  • Reese

    This is so sad. I'm thinking though that she had to hear him jump on the truck. So she knew he was back there. At what point did she realize he fell off and why not go back?

  • miss_meka

    I wonder if she realized he was in the bed of the truck and if so why did she keep going after he fell. so sad. RIP

  • Mahogany03

    RIP Chris Henry. Such an unfortunate and untimely lost.

    :cosign: with attorneymom.....she's not white, but I don't think she's black either. She get a lesser charge, but either way they're going to charge b/c her @$$ is not white :coffee:

    I heard that another player from this football team recently lost his wife. That team is suffering through a lot and everyone should :pray: for them.

  • Mahogany03

    *typo* She may get a lesser charge

  • KaraZ

    I feel for his children and his fiancee, they will have a had time getting over the manner of his death and the suddenness of it.
    Last night the police said they weren't charging Loileni Tonga (sp) with anything, but now that he actually died, I wonder if they'll take the same stance.

  • Kp

    I thought I read that she won't be charged. Also there are reports that say the name of the driver wasn't released and then in the same article release the name of his finacee. What is that about?

  • M_promp2

    I heard homicide is investigating, which tells me that she may be charged.......dayuuum
