No Alcohol Found In Henry's System After His Death

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- A toxicology report found no alcohol in Chris Henry's system after the Cincinnati Bengals receiver died in December from a fractured skull and other head injuries.

The full autopsy and toxicology reports were released by the Mecklenburg County medical examiner's office on Tuesday, nearly six months after Henry died when he came out of the back of a pickup truck driven by his fiancee.

Police say Henry jumped into the back of the moving vehicle driven by Loleini Tonga in the driveway of her family home in Charlotte on Dec. 16 during a domestic dispute.

It remains unclear if Henry jumped or fell out of the truck on a windy road, where he suffered fatal injuries. He was 26.

Tonga was not charged and the death was ruled an accident.
