Police said he died at 6:36 a.m. at Carolinas Medical Center where he had been taken early Wednesday afternoon. Police haven't released a cause of death.You never want to see that happen to anyone, but Henry was a large part of the Bengals offense. What happened with his fiancee we may never know, but it wasn't worth his life, whatever the altercation or argument.
On Wednesday, officers were called to Oakdale Road near I-485 just before noon in reference to a person down. When officers arrived, they found Henry in the road, with life-threatening injuries.
Paramedics transported Henry to Carolinas Medical Center.
Police say Henry was involved in a "domestic situation" with his fiancee on Peachtree Road. His fiancee, who police haven't named, got into a pickup truck and drove away from the home. As she was driving, police say, Henry jumped into the bed of the truck.
The domestic dispute continued between the woman and Henry. At some point, Henry "came out" of the back of the vehicle.
Police refused to elaborate on whether Henry fell or might have been forced out of the truck. No charges have been filed, though police say homicide detectives have been investigating since Wednesday.
Puts things around here in perspective. You talk about health care and economics and policy in clinical terms and throw around numbers...but in the end we're all going through life one day at a time, no matter our job.
