    I think his wife is involved.
    When in doubt, step up the defense

    Ive heard several reports of Wright having financial problems.

    Triche said he was unaware of Wright's alleged financial problems: the Memphis Commercial Appeal reported his custom-built 17-room home in Eads, Tenn., was repossessed in May for $1.3 million, and that his Atlanta house was repossessed in January for $1.1 million.

    Me.

    Thought one thread could be for people who wanted to remember Wright, and the other thread could be for people who were really interested in the circumstances of his death. We'll see how that works out...

    Foul play is most likely the culprit.

    Fame and money bring a lot of bad people into peoples lives. I hope we hear more details but it's still way too early to tell anything about this case.

    I wouldn't say the 911 call necessarily would have ruled out a suicide, he could have been pondering it and was going to call for help and then hung up. However the newest information obviously rules that out.

    If he was shot that many times it definitely seems personal. That or multiple people were shooting him (maybe he escaped and they fired at him as he was fleeing?) I'm sure the story will come out , hopefully soon and the scumbag(s) who did this are brought to justice ASAP.

    From the Memphis papers:

    Law enforcement officials have found the body of missing Memphis basketball star Lorenzen Wright in a wooded area at Hacks Cross and Winchester in southeast Memphis.

    A law enforcement source confirmed the body was that of Wright, 34, who has been missing since July 19, though the Memphis Police Department won't officially comment. Police are referring to their ongoing investigation as a "death investigation."

    Curtis Wright, Lorenzen Wright's uncle told The Associated Press that police called the player’s father, Herb Wright, a couple of hours ago.

    According to sources, a 9-1-1 call was made from Wright's cell phone on July 19. A Germantown fire dispatcher could hear the loud blasts of several gunshots. The cellphone call ended at that point.

    The body was found by someone who called police today.

    At the Collierville home of Wright’s ex-wife, Sherra Robinson Wright, white bed sheets covered the windows.

    A woman who arrived just as the family heard the news, said, “I’m just here to see my sister.” She left about 10 minutes later, with two children, a girl and a boy wearing a Lorenzen Wright Grizzlies jersey.

    About 4:45 p.m., eight or nine adults and children left the house in a caravan of cars, including two identical black Porsche SUVs and a green sedan.

    A large crowd of onlookers had gathered by late afternoon along Hacks Cross. There were adults with small children, even their pets. Many did not personally know the former basketball star but milled around the scene anyway. Cars lined the street. Among those gathered were former University of Memphis basketball stars Penny Hardaway and Elliot Perry, as well as family members and friends.

    Wright was thought to be carrying some amount of cash when he was last seen leaving his ex-wife’s Collierville home, fueling concerns he may be the victim of foul play, according to a Collierville police report released today.

    He recently flew from Atlanta to Memphis to visit friends and his six children, friends said. He was scheduled to drive back to the Atlanta area July 19, with his six children and a friend. He was last seen at about 2 a.m. July 19, leaving his ex-wife’s Whisperwood Drive home. His former wife told police she doesn’t know who he left with or what type of car they were in, according to the missing person’s report.

    Wright played 13 years in the NBA, including five with the Memphis Grizzlies, after playing two seasons at the University of Memphis.

    Wright kept up an active Twitter feed that he often updated several times daily. It featured a picture of him playing in the old Grizzlies uniform, wearing No. 42 and guarding Shaquille O’Neal. It includes observations about his kids (playing Monopoly with them, teaching them to swim), including a picture from July 14, just days before his disappearance, featuring a smiling Wright and six kids wearing Japanese chef hats at a hibachi restaurant.

    The feed went suddenly dormant on Sunday, July 19, with a timestamp of 12:22:41 p.m., with a response to someone with a handle of THEonlyMARY_P.

    It is just one word: "why." It is the last update from his feed, which had 125 followers and 375 tweets.

    Wright’s standing comment for the page: “Entering a new part of my life with my eyes wide open!”

    If they heard the gun shots on July 19, why did it take 9 days to find him, especially since the shots were heard...
