Wright was murdered sometimes around July 28, 2010, 10 days after he was reported missing. Wright-Robinson will be charged with first degree murder in connection with the death of her ex-husband. On December 5th, Billy R. Turner, a 46-year-old deacon at Mt. Olive No. 1 Missionary Baptist Church in Collierville, Tennessee, was arrested and also charged with Wright’s murder.  Wright had been shot multiple times. The murder weapon was found in a lake near walnut Mississippi 75 miles from Memphis Tennessee where Wright’s body was found.

On an interview with The Commercial Appeal in 2015, Wright-Robinson spoke of her ex-husband’s death saying, “On certain days when it gets hard, we have to just pretend like he’s still on a road trip, It’s still hard.”


Wright was a fan favorite in Memphis and was known for his charity work with youth and his father’s involvement as a coach in summer leagues.
