Police searched the home of Sherra Wright on Sunday in connection with the death of her ex-husband, former NBA player Lorenzen Wright, Memphis television station ABC24-WPTY reports.
Lorenzen Wright was found riddled with bullets in Memphis on July 28. He was reported missing by his mother on July 22. Sherra Wright is the last known person to have seen him alive. She told police he left her house around midnight on July 18.
At least half a dozen police cars were parked outside Sherra Wright's home in suburban Memphis on Sunday, according to WPTY. Police removed several items throughout the day and paid particularly close attention to Wright's backyard grill and fire pit.
Neighbors said there was a large fire in Sherra Wright's backyard after Lorenzen Wright disappeared, according to the report. They found it odd she would start a fire on one of the hottest nights of the year.
