Chad Ochocinco was openly crying the Bengals locker room Thursday when talking to reporters about the death of Chris Henry.
“Chris was a very good — very good — friend of mine, really extremely close,” Ochocinco said per Michael David Smith of PFT. “It’s sad to see that it’s come to this point. I’d just talked to Chris Tuesday night. He called to see how I was doing.”
Henry died Thursday morning after falling out of the back of a pick up truck while in the midst of a domestic dispute with his fiancee on Wednesday.
Ochocinco went on to praise the once troubled Henry for turning his life around after a troublesome start to his NFL career.
“He’s been doing everything right,” Ochocinco said. “My grandma always said you never really question the man upstairs on a decision he makes because he never makes mistakes. But I don’t see how Chris was supposed to go already. Especially because he was on the right path. He’s going to be missed.”
