Lorenzen Wright Investigation Update

by August 16, 2010

In the three weeks since Lorenzen Wright was tragically found dead, a police investigation has taken many interesting turns, none more so than the latest one. The AJC reports: “The ex-wife of Lorenzen Wright has told police he left her house the night of his death with a box of drugs and an unknown amount of cash, the Commercial Appeal of Memphis is reporting, citing court records. Sherra Wright told detectives that Wright talked to someone on the phone before he left with the drugs and money. ‘During the conversation with the unidentified individual, Sherra Wright told Det. Young she heard Lorenzen Wright say he was going to flip something for $110,000,’ a police affidavit obtained by the newspaper says. Shortly after that call on July 18, Wright left the home in a vehicle driven by an unidentified person, Sherra Wright told police.”
