Bengals’ Receiver Chris Henry Dies

Former West Viriginia star succumbs to injuries suffered in a fall from a pickup truck during apparent domestic dispute with his fiancee Loleini Tonga in Charlotte. Like Washington safety Sean Taylor not long ago, Henry was a soft-spoken young player with a bad boy image who seemed to have turned things around because of a focus on family (read “children”). Like popular Nashville community figure Steve McNair, his death involved a romantic relationship.

The 24 hour news cycle makes every phenomena seem more frequent than it is, but coming on the heels of Tiger Woods’ domestic spat involving a vehicle, Henry’s death is as eerie as it is tragic.
