L to R: Lamar Wright, Sofia Wright, and Lawson Wright, the children of slain NBA player Lorenzen Wright, mourned the death of their father at a public memorial held today (August 4th).
Lorenzen was found dead on Wednesday, July 28, 2010 in a wooded area in southeast Memphis after he had been missing for 10 days. Police are calling his death a homicide.
There have been rumors that Lorenzen’s ex-wife Sherra is a suspect in the murder, but her lawyer says that those rumors are false. Attorney Gail Mathes says, “There is a rumor out there that she was involved in the killing of Mr. Wright, which is absolutely false.” “[Sherra] wanted the children to be involved with their father and she needs or needed his financial help.”
No arrests have been made. Lorenzen leaves behind six children.
