The death of Memphis basketball legend Lorenzen Wright rocked the Memphis community when his body was found last week in a wooded field riddled with a dozen gunshot wounds.
Since that time, theories galore have floated around as to who murdered Lorenzen and for the reason why he died so horrifically.
Many theories being tossed around are silly and unreasaonble. Others actually make a good bit of sense.
No one can say for sure who killed Lorenzen, but a Sportscasm reader submitted a comment with his opinion on who killed Wright and why (Read Below).
Comment by MEMPHIS on Lorenzen Wright’s Girlfriend Alexis Bradley’s Photos from the Day Before He Died:
First of all, I live in Memphis and know some of his close family members. Sherra his ex-wife, her brother, and botfriend had something to do with his murder. Lorenzen divorced her b/c she got hooked on drugs (crack). Her boyfriend and Lorenzen had an altercation b/c the boyfriend damaged his vehicle and Lorenzen kicked his a*s. Lorenzen had planed to remove his kids out of her home and relocate them to Atlanta…All of this non-sense lead to
his death. As for his girlfriend I was told that she was here in Memphis when he came up missing so….if she didn’t mean anything to him he wouldn’t have brought her home to meet his family. For those of you that don’t know him, his family, or even his girlfriend (Alexis)….SHUT THE F*CK UP!!!! I don’t know his grilfriend but I do know him and his family members. A man doesn’t bring a “groupie” home to meet his family.
(DISCLAIMER: 100% opinion, theory, and thought of comment made by user MEMPHIS.)
Lorenzen’s ex-wife Sherra Robinson Wright told her attorney (not the cops) that three armed men arrived at her house several weeks ago looking for Ren. Many in Memphis believe that statement might have been a cover since it was never reported to the police but instead to her attorney (per her attorney).
The majority of rumors circulating around Memphis include Ren’s ex-wife. We can only hope they aren’t true for the sake of the six children she had with Lorenzen.
The word out late tonight is that Sherra is already in police custody. Police spent several hours at her home today looking for evidence and inspecting a bar-b-q grill for a long time. Neighbors reported seeing flames come from the grill on the day he was killed, an unusually hot day in Memphis to be using a grill.
It sounds plausible, but until the police release more information, this is just one of the dozens of theories floating around Memphis.
What are your thoughts? Who did it? Why did they do it? Will they ever find out what really happened?
