The family of Internet star Lyric McHenry found out about her tragic passing online rather than from their own inner circle, RadarOnline.com learned exclusively.
Shaking her head and wiping tears from her face, McHenry's distraught grandmother told Radar in an interview that she didn't know what happened to her but had heard the news online.
"This is crazy," she cried.
McHenry, 26, was discovered dead Tuesday after a suspected overdose. NYPD confirmed with Radar a woman's body was found: "On Tuesday, August 14, 2018 at approximately 0505 hours, police encountered a 26-year-old female, unconscious and unresponsive, lying on the sidewalk in the vicinity of Undercliff Avenue and Boscobel Place, within the confines of the 44 Precinct. There were no obvious signs of trauma observed. EMS responded to the location and transported the aided female to Bronx Lebanon Hospital, where she was pronounced deceased. The Medical Examiner will determine the cause of death. The investigation remains ongoing."
A source tells Radar the 26-year-old was found wearing a pajama top and no pants, sprawled out on a sidewalk, and was allegedly found with a “small ziplock bag containing cocaine.”
She had a few bruises, but no other injuries, according to reports.
Radar can confirm she began her evening at the Frederick Hotel in NYC where she was celebrating her birthday.
Employees at the ritzy establishment told Radar exclusively she was "a lovely woman."
