There was always questions surrounding Lorenzen Wright’s wife Sherra Wright-Robinson when it came to his death. She was always a suspect, but they never had any evidence, but they do now.
The ex-wife of slain former NBA player Lorenzen Wright has been arrested in California in connection with his death, sources close to the investigation said Friday.
The arrest of Sherra Wright-Robinson came after the Dec. 5 indictment of Billy Turner in the former basketball player’s death. Turner was a deacon at Mt. Olive No. 1 Missionary Baptist Church, where Wright’s ex-wife was a former member.
The body of Wright, 34, was found badly decomposed in southeast Memphis in July 2010, and investigators found evidence of shell casings from different calibers at the scene. He apparently called 911 shortly after midnight on July 19, 2010 from a field near TPC Southwind golf course. At least five gunshot wounds were documented in an autopsy.
Records showed that on August 1, 2010, Memphis police searched her home and found burned pieces of metal and a letter addressed to her and Lorenzen Wright, but law enforcement at that time did not say what the items meant to investigators.
In 2014, she agreed to a confidential settlement in a dispute in Circuit Court over how she spent $1 million in insurance meant to benefit their six children.
It looks like she set up Wright to be murder with a man she went to church with. There relationship is unknown at this time, but BSO sources have confirmed that the man has turned on the former Mrs. Wright.
