Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Chris Henry has died as a result of head injuries caused during what was described as a “domestic situation” with fiancee Loleini Tonga, TMZ reports. Police were called to the 26-year-old NFL star’s home last night after he fell off the back of a pickup truck driven by Tonga. Though she was questioned and released, police are still investigating what happened between the two.
Just hours before the dispute, Tonga wrote about purchasing her wedding rings on her Myspace. Henry had not played a game since November after breaking his forearm.
