According to WMC-TV in Memphis, a woman was taken in for questioning today in the continuing investigation into the Lorenzen Wright murder case. Wright, 34, was found shot to death in a wooded area in Southeast Memphis on Wednesday (July 28). His mother reported him missing on July 22. Around 1 p.m. today, homicide detectives arrived at the home of Herb Wright, Lorenzen’s father.
Wright, who has been in a wheelchair since gunfire severed his spinal chord in 1983, came outside to greet officers. After a brief conversation, Wright let the officers into his home. The patrolman went in first, followed by the two investigators.
A few moments later, a woman’s screams could be heard coming from inside the home. The tone was tearful, and blood curdling.
Within minutes, the investigators emerged. With them was a woman – a relative of Wright’s, we’re told – wearing a purple top and black pants. Read more…
The woman was not handcuffed when she was placed in the back of a patrol car and driven to police headquarters for questioning.
Also Friday, police examined surveillance video from businesses around a barbershop where Wright was reportedly last seen.
According to Wright’s barber, he last saw Wright on Monday afternoon (July 19) when he sat in his chair for a hair cut. But a 911 call from Wright’s cell phone to Germantown PD indicates he was killed in the early morning hours of Monday, while the barber shop was still closed.
