Memphis, TN (abc24.com) - It has been two months since the reward for information into the murder of a former University of Memphis and Grizzlies star was increased, and there are still no credible tips.
Lorenzen Wright's body was found in a Southeast Memphis field in July 2010. He had been shot multiple times.
"As it has been all along, we are simply not hearing anything about it," said Buddy Chapman, who runs the Memphis CrimeStoppers program.
Since the reward was increased to $21,000 on September 19, 2011, Chapman told abc24.com CrimeStoppers has received no credible tips.
"I think the reason we are not getting any tips is i don't think anybody here in Memphis knows who did it," said Chapman. "I think someone came in from out of town, probably to collect money, they didn't get all the money they thought was due, they did what they had to do, they got back on a plane, and left town."
Chapman told abc24.com the level of tips is unusual, because in other investigations, people will call with the smallest of tips.
"People just call in, to see if something will stick to the wall, maybe they saw something, maybe just by chance that will be it, and I'll collect a lot of money, we are just not getting those calls," said Chapman.
