i have read that it could have been suicide, but this makes me wonder. a 911 call was made from his cell phone on monday morning and it hung up. I wonder if it was him in trouble trying to get help

Law enforcement officials have found the body of missing Memphis basketball star Lorenzen Wright in a wooded area at Hacks Cross and Winchester in southeast Memphis.

A law enforcement source confirmed the body was that of Wright, who has been missing since July 19, though the Memphis Police Department won't officially comment.

The body was found by someone who called police today.

Police sources confirmed earlier that they are investigating a 911 hangup call from Wright's cellphone left Monday morning.

Wright likely had a lot of cash on him when he was last seen leaving his ex-wifeís Collierville home, fueling concerns he may be the victim of foul play, according to a Collierville police report released today.

Wright, a former NBA standout who once played for the Memphis Grizzlies, recently flew in from Atlanta to Memphis to visit friends and his six children, friends said. He was scheduled to catch a ride back to the Atlanta area July 19 with a buddy with his six kids in tow. He was last seen in the wee hours of that morning, at about 2 a.m., leaving his ex-wifeís Whisperwood Drive home, but his former wife, Sherra Robinson Wright, 39, told police she doesnít know who he left with or what type of car they were in, according to the missing personís report.

Police say the investigation is ongoing.
