EJ Johnson Lyric McHenry

A Bronx man has been charged with concealing Lyric McHenry‘s body. The 26-year-old reality TV star was 20 weeks pregnant when her body was found on a sidewalk three months ago.

McHenry was wearing just a pajama top and underwear, but no pants when she was found around 5 am. On Aug. 14.

Alexis Meija-Ramirez was arrested and charged with tampering with physical evidence, according to an affidavit obtained by E! News.

The affidavit revealed McHenry died of an overdose of cocaine, alcohol and heroin.

Police are looking for “two other male individuals” who allegedly helped carry McHenry’s body to the area above the Major Deagan Expressway in the Bronx.

McHenry, who was a lifelong friend of Magic Johnson’s son EJ Johnson, graduated from Stanford University in 2014. She worked on The Real Hollywood Husbands reality TV show before going on to write for Refinery 29 and Complex.com.

Shortly after her death, Johnson wrote a statement on his Instagram account, explaining why he didn’t pay tribute to his friend.

“I’m going to make this clear to everyone there will be no mourning post because I’m not going to reduce a 25yr friendship to 1 Instagram post please respect my privacy and my process”.

  • imright

    selfish ass woman couldnt even stay clean for the precious baby !! ?

  • RICHIE_RICH

    I wonder if she was still using or if she forced to ?

  • LYRICS

    What is she wasn’t aware yet? I’d just like to think that no one would knowingly to that to such a precious blessing.

  • Junkanoo

    EJ needs to respect the sighted and stay indoors to slay his tacky outfits all year round. RIP to this young woman.

  • FukkFolks2018

    You had a semi-Ivy League education, seemingly born into priv., and you died partially naked, full of drugs and a gut full of fetus, on a NY street. Clear across the country from home. Yours is a sad story indeed sista. Rest easy

  • T Willis

    Cocaine and heroine found in her system. Along with a packet of cocaine that was found on her body. That seems like overkill to me. Not to mention the 3 men moving her body. She was found in a pajama top and undies? There’s some sort of foul play going on.

  • T Willis

    They say she was a writer and working on some story. It sounds like a bad episode of Law & Order: SVU

  • T Willis

    Omg ? not the sighted

  • Kim’s Original Face

    20 week pregnant ?? this is a sad story just say no to drugs? I wonder if EJ knew she was using or if he uses himself?

  • xenaD

    I thought it was a tranny! Rip but how does one overdose? Is it like a bad batch? Or do u get too high? Or do u get like a heart attack from the needle like say u put an air bubble into your vein? I never looked this info up ??

  • Ihatemoney

    20 weeks is pretty far along though… Unless you are clueless about your body a women should know something is up??

  • SpiceGirl

    Somebody got some SPLAINING to do!

  • Coy little wink

    An OD is too much drugs in your system your heart stops

  • RICHIE_RICH

    To much drugs in the system

  • xenaD

    But wat happens I don’t get how the person dies.. like Demi lovato how was she “near death” I’m going to try to google or YouTube these things. I have questions ???

  • HotInCleveland

    Her ex said she abused drugs. Her family and friends said she was a “partier” and did drugs just like everyone else.

  • Coy little wink

    When your heart stop beating you die hun your heart is your engine like in a car didn’t you pay attention in elementary school? ?https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/7ef12b51db9d80cb3921f067fbdb87e1bb2bd9ebe3df2611bc6342b3869872a5.gif

  • cherrypie

    Sad story. She was 20 weeks pregnant but using coke, heroin and drinking alcohol. The poor baby didnt have a chance smh

  • HotInCleveland

    This lady was a known drug user and alleged abuser. However, her father and sister make excuses for her poor behavior and claim she “partied like everyone else”. No one in my circle does drugs but then again I’m not a product of Beverly Hills. Also, I don’t understand how someone her size is unaware that they are 20weeks pregnant unless they are completely out of tune with their body and treat it like a dumpster.

  • Guest

    I said on an earlier post about this on a different blog that this woman did not look healthy. I got attacked. Yes, she was thin but her face looked sunken. I have family members that are thinner than her but look healthy. RIP Lyric.

  • tia

    This was a horrific way to go out. Then on the street like some vagrant. Not good at all. Rest easy my sister and continued blessings and strength for the family.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I don’t consider it selfishness. Addiction is a powerful thing. It has a death-grip on the person’s body and mind. An addict usually can’t just flip the switch and say “OK, no more drugs after this”… even if she finds out she’s pregnant.

  • xenaD

    I forgot lol and i really can’t comprehend that.. but eh ok lol

  • Alextra Ballard

    Lordt….At least her body has been foundt and now the fam can finally lay her to rest properly. Smh@concealing a corpse. RIP Lyric

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    GET it how you live! No different from the around the way females that DO NOT HAVE THE OPPORTUNITIES she had. And doing drugs while PREGNANT????? NO! Poor baby! AND we wonder why we have EJ’S of the world! Not sayin Magic and Cookie did drugs.. but er um Karma is a muffuggaa!

  • LYRICS

    I fully agree, but IF she was an addict I can also see how that wouldn’t be her 1st thought (as far fetched as that sounds), but the ladder of my previous statement is y I hoped she just didn’t know, b/c IDK how one could not think about that blossoming life inside a womb!

  • Coy little wink

    Lol…but everyone dies when their heart stops…that’s it!

  • McKay

    What’s the difference between an addict who can quit cold turkey compared to those who can’t?

  • Music

    So, she overdosed and they just dumped her on the side of the road?!!…These so called friends.

  • MSGREENMINUSTHEENVY

    This adult chose the life, put the drugs into her body and baby. I am sorry she and her child are dead. There were better decisions for her to choose from and she didn’t.
    I pray for peace for her family and friends.

  • Marlika

    You shouldn’t even have to keep explaining. Its common sense how a person dies from an over dose.

  • MSGREENMINUSTHEENVY

    Exactly!

  • Fodderwing

    No mention of the pregnancy in any report I’ve read over the last 24 hrs. Was she?

  • Fodderwing

    It was a speed ball. The combined effect of mixing coke and heroin together. The heroin causes ur heart to slow down…the alcohol made her heart stop. It’s a central nervous system depressant as well as H. If the H was cut with Fentanyl she didn’t have a chance.

  • Prettybrowneyes

    ???

  • Solstice

    Yes. Sadly she was. When the story first broke to my knowledge it was stated then.

  • Solstice
  • Solstice

    LOLOLOL!!

  • Coy little wink

    Common sense is not so common ?

  • Solstice

    Found a link from when she was initially found. ???

    This gif!! ??? Everytime!!

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Sadsadsad. The detox from all those drugs would have been horrid for that baby.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    That’s where the drug use has got to end! When you find out you’re pregnant…no more fun & games. Go get help to save yourself and innocent baby.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Also as you’re researching keep in mind that not only can drugs k1ll you immediately but there are long term effects to drug use. Even when people quit they have damaged their body.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    It sure does.

  • Logan Roberts

    Cold world…..

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Agreed, but you’re got to reach out for help. 98% of people can’t do it on their own. Pregnant women definitely need medical assistance.

  • imright

    she was 20 weeks, she knew

  • ClaireHuxtable

    It depends on the type of drug you’re addicted to as well. Some drugs withdrawals require hospitalization because you can d1e.

  • imright

    she choose to not use BIRTH CONTROL & got pregnant !!! IRRESPONSIBLE !!! addiction is an end result after the person CHOOSES to do drugs !!! then she continued to use drugs while pregnant SELFISH !!! she could have gotten clean IF SHE WANTED to !!

  • Kenya Moore’s Crown

    Coke. He’s definitely a Coke head

    Her smile is JUST like the smile these people were making on this Netflix movie I just saw “Truth or Dare” damn freaky…..

    EJ and her were friends and he wants to be a woman badly..okay.

  • MsPam

    Sorry for her family’s loss but parents understand that your kids are totally different people when their not around you. My mom that I was a angel but I wasn’t.

  • Li-Wright

    Good family and education background and she STILL got into the drug scene.

  • Black4life

    Yasssss….that you.

  • Fodderwing

    So I found those as well…I’m just scratching my head only bc there’s no mention of it in any report from the last day. Granted, New York doesn’t have any laws protecting unborn babies…so there won’t be any charges that could be filed in that regard. Either way. It may be something that is super sensitive to the family that they don’t want the media to discuss. They seem pretty well connected. Thanks for the link Solstice! Happy Halloween!

  • Fodderwing

    So bc Demi was a serious addict, she had Narcan in her house which someone gave her. Narcan reverses the effect of most opioid overdoses.

  • Fodderwing

    Self control. Will power.

  • SumthinSweeter

    damn. I can barely function through a good blunt of Kush and I NEVER drink if I am smoking or someone will be carrying me. Not to make light at all, I just totally don’t understand how someone can risk their life for a high. Especially when u are educated and mature enough to make that decision but then again I also know addiction makes people not give a f#ck.

  • Strappyheels

    Yes!!

    I have an aunt that overdosed a few times and one time was left by her supposed man.
    Dope and friends do not actually add up.
    Luckily she’s clean now.

  • Strappyheels

    Shows you how she was living

  • Strappyheels

    “Like everyone else”!

    What the hell is going on in Hollyweird?

  • Strappyheels

    Circumstances

  • dontgetblocked

    Oh well. She grew up entitled and became a druggie. Got knocked up and then died from overdosing on alcohol, cocaine, and heroin while 20 weeks pregnant. She made her choices.

  • Fodderwing

    You always on point!

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

    How her lil tiny self handle doing all those drugs and how you do herion and coke? And alcohol none of that sounds like it even mixes coke have you hyper or jacked up herion makes you nod off and liquor is a roll of the dice it can have you somewhere between not giving a fux cuz you feel like Superman or crying in the corner cuz you in yo feelings. Man this is sad and not the outcome I thought it would be are they looking into the possibility that she was made to look like this maybe someone injected the herion in her while she was high off cocaine and liquor? Idk ? addiction is secondary to the real issue there’s a reason people turn to drugs. What was she trying to escape so bad that she needed all that stuff

  • PetiteButterScotch

    That haunting smile ugh..yal couldn’t find a better pic? Tht smile is scaring me…….

  • Fodderwing

    K. New York Times did a story about it today and referenced her pregnancy as fact. Damn. Rest peacefully to both souls.

  • Solstice

    Aww thank you! I get confused from time to time but I know my Rose garden fam has my back! Much luv ????

  • Solstice

    Yes I believe you are right!! I too think her family wanted any further details to be on the hush. I can’t help but wonder if they knew she was using. ? Happy Halloween ? to you also!!

  • Jussjess25

    I doubt she was that strung out? Who is the baby father of the fetus?? Theee men involved covering the crime. Auntie is the culprit ?

  • Fodderwing

    It’s what’s up. If they gave her a hotshot that’s the deal. She was geeked and wanted a come down. When u do blow u drink hella. If it’s good yay u drink more. And at some point the party’s gotta end, right. Holla back DEMI. She didn’t have Narcon. U lay with dogs u bound to get fleas. They thought she was gonna thot it out but all she wanted was a night cap.

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

    Dang? I guess a part of me was
    HOping different cuz I can’t see someone knowing they are pregnant doing all that I was just hoping

  • Fodderwing

    I know! So many women would go to the ends of the earth to be given the gift of carrying new life. There are so many of us who have babies/kids that were not planned…I have two! I’ll save the details but bottom line, I stepped up. We all stepped up. What’s cray is that she didn’t have to worry about money, had a career that she could have continued as a single parent…and had a family who loved her. Not many women have that safety net. She was lost. Love your kids!
