Murder Weapon Found for Seven-Year-Old Case of Former Oxford, Mississippi Basketball Player

Memphis Police located the gun used in the murder of Lorenzen Wright, a Memphis Grizzlies and University of Memphis Tigers player who was killed in 2010. The weapon was retrieved from a lake on County Road 302 in Walnut, Mississippi.

Wright went missing July 18, 2010 in Collierville, Mississippi and his body was found 10 days later. The case went cold for seven years until heated back up last week. 

The reward for information leading to arrest in the case has crawled to $21,000 in hopes to put the killer or killers behind bars. The State of Tennessee, the City of Memphis, the Memphis Grizzlies, and CrimeStoppers are all joining dollars to bring justice to Wright’s family.

Wright grew up in Oxford, Mississippi and played high school, collegiate, and professional basketball in Memphis. As a sophomore, he was selected a Third Team All-America by the Associated Press at the University of Memphis. He played for the Grizzlies for three years. The Local Voice Ligature
