REST IN PEACE: A veteran wide receiver for the Cincinnati Bengals died in a car accident….

Charlotte, North Carolina One day after falling out of the back of a pickup vehicle after what the police said was a domestic argument with his fiancée, Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Chris Henry passed away.
Indeed, the league’s tougher personal conduct code was prompted in part by his numerous arrests over a five-year NFL tenure.
However, according to his colleagues and even the team’s owner, the Bengals receiver was adamant about putting his difficult past behind him and moving forward with a promising future.

Sadly, his efforts came to an abrupt end.

Less than eight hours after he fell off the back of a pickup truck on a winding residential street around eight miles northwest of downtown Charlotte, 26-year-old Henry passed away early on Thursday, according to Charlotte-Mecklenburg police.

The reason of death was not disclosed right away.

Henry missed time with the Bengals following a game last month in which he broke his forearm, ending his season.

Bengals owner Mike Brown stated, “We knew him in a different way than his public persona.” “He had overcome the difficulties in his life and appeared to have arrived at a turning point for everything. He was also going to have the future that all of us had hoped for him. We experience agony from it. We shall miss him, and we feel it in our hearts.”

Receptionist Andre Caldwell of the Bengals remarked, “People thought he was a bad guy, but he had a big heart.”

Other than the fact that murder investigators were assigned to the case, police did not provide much facts regarding the investigation. Witnesses and two 911 tapes that were made public on Thursday offered some hints.

When the truck pulled out of the driveway, neighbor Lee Hardy told WLWT-TV and The Cincinnati Enquirer that he was in his yard working. Hardy said that Henry was shouting at him to talk to the woman driving.

Hardy told the newspaper, “He said, ‘If you take off, I’m going to jump off the truck and kill myself.”

An anonymous caller on the first 911 clip claimed to be pursuing a yellow pickup vehicle.
