Sherra Wright, Lorenzen Wright's Ex-Wife, Subject Of Homicide Search

Sherra Wright, the ex-wife of recently killed longtime NBA player Lorenzen Wright, is the subject of police scrutiny in Memphis, MyEyewitnessNews.com reports. Two neighbors tell the web site that homicide investigators searched Sherra Wright's house because she started a fire in her backyard the night her ex-husband disappeared, on one of the hottest days of the year.

Neighbors also say she recently was part of a suspicious conversation in her front yard.

Wright vanished on July 19, and he was found dead on July 28. His body was reportedly shot multiple times, and a harrowing 911 call from his phone on the day he disappeared is said to include the sound of at least ten gunshots.

Last week, an attorney for Mrs. Wright said the former NBA player's ex-wife was threatened by three gun-toting men approximately six weeks before he was shot to death.
