Sherra Wright-Robinson Arrested for Ex-NBA player Lorenzen Wright's Death
So, I'm gonna guess most of you don't know about this guy. He played for the Cavaliers for a little while....we were the last nba team he played for. He disappeared the day before my birthday in 2010. I followed this case for a while, and then it stalled. My boyfriend and I were just talking about it a few months ago, and I mentioned that I hoped it doesn't become a forgotten cold case. His bitch ass ex-wife set him up.

"After Wright's body was found on July 28 in a wooded area on Callis Cutoff Road just west of Hacks Cross Road, it was reported that a 9-1-1 call had been received from his cell phone in the early morning of July 19 by the Germantown, Tennessee 911 dispatch center; the caller was speaking with the dispatcher when 11 gunshots rang out.The dispatcher did not report the call to his supervisor until eight days later, hindering the police investigation and resulting in a payout to Wright's family"- wikipedia

Lorenzen Wright's ex-wife Sherra charged with his murder

MEMPHIS, Tenn. - FOX13 has learned that Lorenzen Wright's ex-wife, Sherra Wright, has been arrested and jailed in California. 
She was arrested in her Riverside, California home Friday night. Jail records show she was booked into the Robert Presley Detention Center in Riverside at 9:28 p.m. Pacific time.

MPD Director said Sherra Wright-Robinson has been indicted & arrested for conspiracy, criminal attempted first degree & first degree murder in the death of Lorenzen Wright.
Deborah Marion, Lorenzen's mother, spoke with FOX13 late Friday night. She said police told her Sherra will be charged with murder; the same as Billy Turner.

The indictment in the case is still sealed, according to FOX13 sources.
The former NBA star was last seen alive on July 18, 2010 when he left the home of Sherra Wright. The next day, police received a phone call from Lorenzen Wright's cell phone, but it was interrupted by gunfire, according to Shelby County District Attorney's Office.
Wright's body was later discovered on July 28, 2010 in a field near Hacks Cross and Winchester. The then 34-year-old was shot multiple times. 
Wright-Robinson had previously spoken about the death of her former husband, who played for the Memphis Grizzlies and four other NBA teams as a forward and center in 13 seasons before retiring in 2009.

"On certain days when it gets hard, we have to just pretend like he's still on a road trip,'' Wright-Robinson told The Commercial Appeal in 2015. "It's still hard.''

The 6-foot-11 Wright averaged eight points and more than six rebounds per game during his career. Born and raised in Memphis, he was a fan favorite thanks to his charity work with youth and his father's involvement as a coach in summer leagues. Former NBA players and friends, including Anfernee Hardaway and Elliot Perry, attended a memorial service for Wright in the days after his body was found. - ESPN

I'm happy for Lorenzen's parents and his son that ^ Sherra Wright and Billy Turner are finally behind bars.

Turner (who has a violent police record from the 1990s) was the deacon at the church Lorenzen and Sherra attended. I've also read reports that he did some gardening work for the Wrights.

I didn't think anything was happening in the case. Turns out, last year several people went to the police gang unit with information about the murder. Police were informed that the gun used to shoot Lorenzen to death could be found in a specific Mississippi lake and the FBI recovery team actually found it, 6 years after the murder.

I think investigators probably have a lot more evidence than they're presenting publicly. Conspiracy to commit murder, criminal attempted first degree murder, and first degree murder -- that's about as serious as criminal charges get.

It will be interesting to learn more about the motive. Money? Were Sherrin and Billy Turner having an affair? Both?
