Mother of shot NBA center continues to look for his killer

lorenzen-wright-sacramentoIt has been three years since NBA star Lorenzen Wright was killed. His killer remains on the loose, LocalMemphis reports.

Wright was reported missing by his family on July 19, 2010. Two weeks later, his body was found in a southeast Memphis field.

Lorenzen Wright played for 12 years in the NBA, for Los Angeles Clippers, Atlanta Hawks, Memphis Grizzlies, Sacramento Kings and Cleveland Cavs.

He appeared in 778 NBA games (447 started), averaging 8 ppg, 6.4 rpg in 23.8 minutes on the court.

Recently, TV One aired its “Celebrity Crime Files Show” exploring the events leading up to Wright’s tragic death.

Lorenzen’s mother Deborah Marion said the investigation is still in the same spot as it was three years ago when he was killed.

Marion said she is frustrated with MPD searching for her son’s killer.

“We need some more police from somewhere else because our police are overbooked. They cant focus on Lorenzen. They got to focus on their office. It’s too much stuff that’s happening there for them to focus on my son,” she said.

“But I’m not going to let them forget about it. I’m not a parent that’s gone sit back and wait. I will make something happen every time. After this TV One show, I’m already on to my next show. As much of exposure I can get for my child. That’s what I’m gonna do until the day I die,” Marion said.

Wright’s mother has turned to a private team of forensic specialists and retired detectives who have volunteered to take the case.
