Lorenzen Wright's Ex-Wife Was Arrested In Connection To His 2010 Murder

MANDATORY CREDIT NO LICENSING EXCEPT BY AP COOPERATIVE MEMBERS

Lorenzen Wright's murder remained one of Memphis police's highest-profile cold cases until investigators found a murder weapon in MS last month.

The body of Wright, 34, was found badly decomposed in a field in southeast Memphis in July 2010, and investigators found evidence of shell casings from different calibers at the scene.

Billy R. Turner was arrested and charged with first-degree murder on Tuesday.

That process led to several recent revelations in a case many expected would turn cold. ESPN stated Federal Bureau of Investigation agents found the murder weapon in a MS lake based on a tip they received. He has pleaded not guilty to the murder charge.

There were always suspicions about Sherra Wright-Robinson regarding the mysterious and unsolved murder of her ex-husband, former National Basketball Association star Lorenzen Wright.

"The attempted murder charge is about a prior attempt to kill Lorenzen Wright, officials confirmed", noted Katie Fretland, Yolanda Jones and Marc Perrusquia in the Commercial Appeal report. Wright was shot and killed in his hometown of Memphis, and prior to the December 5 arrest of a man named Billy Turner, it seemed like the investigation had gone cold.

Sherra Wright, 38, was arrested during a traffic stop on the 15 Freeway near Hidden Valley Parkway on the Corona-Norco border about 8 p.m.

Wright was questioned about her involvement by Sports Illustrated in 2015 as part of a collaborative effort by the magazine and Fox Sports 1. You can view the video below.

It's not clear if there's a tie between Wright's ex-wife and the landscaper. And then thirdly, I'm an author.

Sherra Wright-Robinson's arrest on Friday in Wright's death. "The law enforcement should do what's best to find out who's the killer". It's been reported Turner and Sherra Wright attended the same church, but their exact relationship is unclear.

Wright-Robinson has been charged with conspiracy, first-degree murder and criminal attempt first degree murder, Memphis police Director Michael Rallings said in announcing the charges Saturday.

Though published as fiction, her book, "Mr. Tell Me Anything", the story of a deceitful, philandering basketball player who grows up in MS, moves to Memphis, marries an older woman and becomes a top pro draft pick, bears an uncanny resemblance to the real-life story of Lorenzen and Sherra Wright.
