The day before her death, the reality star documented her birthday celebrations in several Instagram Stories, partying with friends at The Frederick Hotel, SoHo Grand Hotel and Dream Downtown in Manhattan.

Lyric's mother Jennifer had posted a sweet birthday message for her daughter last week on Instagram, writing, "Happy 26 years my handsome princess Lyric Leigh". The show lasted one season on E!

On Monday night, McHenry had taken to her Instagram Story to upload videos of her birthday celebrations out at The Frederick Hotel, SoHo Grand Hotel and Dream Downtown in NY.

She posted an Instagram story of McHenry happily posing for the camera, the caption reading '@lyric_leigh bday turnup'.

McHenry had also worked for Artists For A New South Africa, a charity that helps to "improve post-apartheid South African society through combating HIV/AIDS", since she was 11 years old.

In her final clip, which she posted around 1 a.m., she was seen sitting next to a male friend as she blew a kiss to the camera. From June 2008 to August 2011, the outlet reported that McHenry worked as a fundraising intern for Barack Obama's presidential campaign.
