Cops charge man with helping to conceal body of Hollywood producer's daughter
A Bronx man faces felony charges for helping dump former reality star Lyric McHenry’s body on a desolate sidewalk near the Major Deegan Expressway this summer, cops said early Wednesday.
Alexis Mejia-Ramirez, 29, and two other men moved the pregnant 26-year-old woman’s body to an empty stretch of sidewalk on Undercliff Ave. in Highbridge Aug. 14, police said.
Cops found McHenry - an up-and-coming media star whose father is Doug McHenry, a Hollywood producer behind the films “New Jack City” and “Jason’s Lyric” - at 5 a.m., wearing a pajama top and underwear, with a small ziplock bag of cocaine on her. She was 20 weeks pregnant.
She overdosed on a fatal combination of cocaine, alcohol and heroin, E! News reported Tuesday, citing an affidavit.
Police on Aug. 25 released video of a mystery man investigators believe drove off with McHenry early Aug. 14, after a night of partying at the Dream Downtown hotel in Chelsea.
Police did not announce Mejia-Ramirez’s arrest on Oct. 15, and an NYPD spokesman couldn’t say early Wednesday if he was the man on the video. The other two men who helped move her body remain at large, cops said.
Mejia-Ramirez, who was ordered held of $7,500 bond or $1,500 cash bail, made bail Saturday, public records show.
