    After free agent NBA player Lorenzen Wright was reported missing, it seemed to a lot of people including his mother that something didn't seem right.

    On July 19, that would be the last day anyone would see Lorenzen Wright, 34, alive, who was later reported missing on July 22nd by his mother, as covered on MemphisRap.com on last week.

    Although the public wouldn't know until later, 911 dispatchers received a phone call from Lorenzen Wright's cell phone and about 10 gun shots where heard and a man speaking expletives, as reported on HipHopRX.com.

    Almost 10 days later, Lorenzen Wright's body was discovered in a wooded area near the Fieldstone Apartments off Hacks Cross revealing the whereabouts of his body.

    His wife Sherra Wright, 39, later came and told authorities that men came to her home looking for Lorenzen Wright and guns could be visibly seen. To bring even more to the story, according to ABC 24, Sherra Wright's neighbors reported to authorities that soon after Lorenzen Wright was reported missing, a huge fire from a grill could be seen burning and it was unusual since it was on one of the hottest nights of the year.

    On Sunday, authorities spent the day searching through Sherra Wright's possessions including the grill that is believed to may have been used to hide evidence.

    According to Sherra Wright's attorney Gail Mathes, her client had no reason to want Lorenzen Wright dead because she needed him for support.

    In related news, Internet users are speaking amongst themselves alleging that Sherra Wright confessed to the murder.

    Wow she really killed dude. Made up a story of armed men showing up at her house, thus using that to corroborate her potential false alibi. And now neighbors reportedly remember seeing a fire in her backyard, where she probably was burning evidence. She is done. This is about to be an episode on Forensic Files SMH.

    Maybe, but she's innocent until proven guilty, so let's be patient, and let the authorities do their job before we throw her under the bus. Justice will be served in due time.

    What would be her motive to want to do such a thing?

    Police detectives in Memphis searched the home and backyard of ex-NBA player Lorenzen Wright's ex-wife on Sunday, WPTY-TV in Memphis reported.


    Wright
    Lorenzen Wright's body was found Wednesday in the woods in southeast Memphis. He had been missing since July 18, when he left his ex-wife's house around midnight with an unidentified person. Police have ruled his death a homicide.

    Detectives spent several hours at the home of Sherra Wright, including a lengthy search of a backyard grill and fire pit, according to the report. Her neighbors told police they had seen smoke coming from the backyard the night Lorenzen Wright went missing and thought it strange because it was one of the hottest nights of the summer.

    Last week, Sherra Wright's lawyer, Gail Mathes, said three armed men looking for Lorenzen Wright showed up to the ex-wife's house about six weeks before he was found shot to death. The men, dressed in sport coats with weapons in view, threatened Sherra Wright and her family if she told anyone about the visit, Mathes said.

    The 6-foot-11 Wright, who starred at the University of Memphis, played 13 seasons in the NBA for the Los Angeles Clippers, Atlanta Hawks, Memphis Grizzlies, Sacramento Kings and Cleveland Cavaliers.

    Wright's mother is criticizing the way police in suburban Germantown handled the 911 call that came in from Wright's phone the night he died, The Commercial Appeal reported. The newspaper, which first reported the call, said a garbled male voice on the call can be heard using an expletive, and then as many as a dozen gunshots are heard in succession.

    Rodney Bright, Germantown's deputy police chief, said department officials did not know about the call until Tuesday, eight days after it was received by a dispatcher in the early morning hours of July 19.

    "They did drop the ball," said Wright's mother, Deborah Marion, according to the report. "How do you call 911 and hear shots and nobody reacts?"

    Marion said that once, when her grandchildren were playing with the phone and called 911, three police officers showed up at the door to investigate.

    "How do three police show up for a 911 hang-up, but nobody does anything when you have a 911 and shots? Somebody's got to answer for this. I want somebody prosecuted because this is not right," she said, according to the report.

    Wright leaves behind six children, his mother and his father, Herb Wright, who coached his son from a wheelchair after he was shot in the spine. Lorenzen Wright's 11-month-old daughter, Sierra, died in March 2003 of sudden infant death syndrome.

    Wright's family and the NBA's Grizzlies are hosting a memorial service for Wright, a Memphis native, on Wednesday at FedEx Forum.

    It's been 10 years since he passed away. His ex wife and her church deacon murdered him. They are now sentence to 30 years in prison.
