Chris Henry Dead at 26

by at . Comments

Chris Henry has passed away as a result of the grave injuries he sustained after falling out of the back of a moving pickup truck Wednesday.

He was in critical condition last night, but Charlotte-Mecklenbruck, N.C., police have confirmed that Chris Henry is dead as of 6:36 a.m. EST.

The NFL star was just 26.

Police believe the wide receiver for the Cincinnati Bengals jumped into the back of the truck in an attempt to stop his fiancee, Loleini Tonga, from leaving a "domestic situation" at her parents' home in North Carolina.

At some point, Henry fell out of the truck, presumably at a high speed if he did not survive. He was rushed to a hospital but did not make it.

Authorities are still investigating the accident.

R.I.P. Chris Henry (1983-2009).

Earlier yesterday, everything seemed right in Henry's world. Loleini Tonga had updated her MySpace page, writing about how she just "put deposIt down 4 weDDing piCs" and "Paid 4 ouR riNgs" in advance of her upcoming wedding to Chris.

The accident ensued mere hours later. More details as the story develops ...

It's hard when they refuse to be otefcromd by anyone else. I have my oldest up and in my armpit almost every single time I'm nursing the baby. I feel like I can't catch a break since the baby hardly sleeps at all during the night and usually is in bed with me. Oh sorry was this your post? And here I am complaining to you:)

Heather, how am I a bitch? Because you think it's wrong for a white woman to think a black man is hot? Or because of what I said about the girlfriend? Just curious.

Oh yeah, it is a very sad tragedy. I hope the fiance, or whatever she was, comes clean cuz I think she needs to sit in a jail cell for some years & think about what she did & figure out how to explain to the child, "I ran over your daddy & killed him".

Ooh! That was one fine young black man! If he had been with me, that would never had happened, cuz I would never have let him out of my bed! Day-um! Mmm! I would have called him "candy bar" cuz he was sweet, chocolate, & edible!

First thing Desi you said he was ugly how do you look? Maybe there is some jealousy because you can't get a woman? She didn't look that good anyway did you see some of the photos of her? I think it is definitely her fault that this man is dead. Why would you let him jeopardize his life or career when you know he had a family to take care of? I do think you are right about one thing he should have stayed with his race because a sister would have never let anything like this happen to her man. She should take her big dumb a-- to jail.

My deepest sympathy to Mr. Henry's family and friends. RIP. I am not thinking of his past faults, but what happened on Wednesday.
