Man Charged in 2010 Murder of Former Grizzlies Center Lorenzen Wright

According to court documents cited by The Commercial Appeal , Billy Turner has been indicted in the killing of the former Grizzlies and Hawks player.

Authorities were able to find Turner after finding the gun used in the killing in a MS lake in November. Ten days later, police found Wright's badly-decomposed, bullet-riddled body in the woods in southeast Memphis along with shell casings from different caliber guns. "You gotta pray for what you want and that's what I did".

Wright, a 6-foot-11 Memphis native, University of Memphis standout and 13-year professional player, was last heard from on July 19, 2010, during a 911 call to a dispatcher in Germantown, Tenn., shortly after midnight. She also says that she overheard him saying on the phone that he was going to "flip something for $110,000", and that she watched him get into a vehicle with someone she was unable to identify. She later told police that she believed Wright was carrying a large amount of cash at the time of his disappearance.
