Formers NBA player Lorenzen Wright ex-wife Sherra Wright is in police custody tonight, in connection with Wright’s murder.
The bullet-riddled body of the NBA free agent was found in a field in Southeast Memphis on July 28, 2010. His mother reported Lorenzen Wright missing on July 22nd, saying she suspected foul play. Sherra Wright was the last person to see him alive, telling the authorities she saw him leave her house in Collierville on July 18th.
Detectives spent most of Sunday at her house assessing, among other things, a grill and fire pit that neighbors reported was used after his disappearance. According to them the fire was large and unusual because it occurred on the hottest night of the year. Sherra claimed to be the last one to see him since he was found murdered on Wednesday.
