TMZ, notorious for getting the story right well ahead of the mainstream media, led all media reports that Cincinnati Bengals star receiver, Chris Henry, died from injuries suffered during an alleged domestic dispute with his fiancee.

Details of the incident are sketchy at best. Apparently, Henry jumped into the back of a pickup truck in a vain attempt to prevent his fiancee from leaving a “domestic situation” at her parents’ house eight miles north of Charlotte, North Carolina. Henry subsequently fell from the truck seriously injuring himself in the process. Authorities rushed him to the hospital where he passed away this morning.
Henry, long a poster boy for bad behavior after five arrests, three suspensions and a release from the Bengals in 2008, was on his way to starring in one of the best comeback stories ever seen in the NFL. Unfortunately, Bengals fans will never see how that story might have turned out.
