MEMPHIS, TN - At least half a dozen police cars sat outside 39-year-old Sherra Wright's Collierville house on Sunday, August 1, 2010, as detectives searched inside and out for clues into the murder of Wright's ex-husband, former Memphis Tiger and Memphis Grizzlies player Lorenzen Wright.
The bullet-riddled body of the NBA free agent was found in a field in Southeast Memphis on Wednesday, July 28, 2010. His mother reported Wright missing on July 22nd, saying she suspected foul play. Sherra Wright was the last person to see him alive, telling the authorites she saw him leave her house in Collierville on July 18th.
Investigators with the Memphis Police Department spent much of the day Sunday, searching Sherra Wright's home for evidence. They could be seen removing several items, and at one point, were in the backyard looking very carefully at Wright's grill and fire pit.
Neighbors reported a large fire in her backyard after Wright's disappearance, and say they thought it was unusual for Wright to light a fire on one of the hottest nights of the year.
