Lyric McHenry’s body was discovered around 5 a.m., the night after she was out celebrating her birthday at the Dream Downtown hotel in Chelsea. She was wearing a pajama top and underwear and there was a small bag of cocaine near her.
According to detectives, the 26-year-old overdosed on a toxic mix of cocaine, alcohol, and heroin. She was 20 weeks pregnant.
Two other men are still being sought in connection to Lyric’s death.
Alexis Mejia-Ramirez faces up to eight years in jail, but more than likely will receive less time because it is his first offense.
