A body believed to be that of former Cleveland Cavaliers power forward Lorenzen Wright was found in southeast Memphis today according to sources.
Wright was reported missing on July 22nd.
Sources tell Memphis’ MyEyeWitnessNews.com that a body found in a wooded area of southeast Memphis is indeed that of the missing basketball player. Sources tell the website that the body had been shot, and it may have been a self-inflicted gunshot.
Memphis police are still investigating.
From Memphis’ The Commercial Appeal:
In the early hours of July 19, a Germantown dispatcher received a 911 call from Lorenzen Wright’s cell phone.
The dispatcher heard a garbled male voice utter an expletive, then at least 10 gunshots.
“Hello? Hello? Can you hear me?” the dispatcher asked.
Then the phone went dead.
The dispatcher called back. No one answered.
Nine days later, Wright’s body was found in a wooded area of southeast Memphis, two law enforcement sources confirmed Wednesday afternoon.
