Check his timeline, I hope hes just sick and playing round....

Law enforcement has found the body of former NBA player Lorenzen Wright, according to the Memphis Commercial Appeal. The newspaper says a police source has confirmed the body is that of the former University of Memphis star, although it hasn't been confirmed officially.

The body was found in a wooded area in southeast Memphis. Wright has been missing since July 19, and his family has said it suspects foul play. He was last seen leaving his ex-wife's home near Memphis, and at that time was believed to be carrying some amount of cash.

He was in Memphis to see his six children, who were set to drive to Atlanta with him. Police say the investigation is ongoing. Wright was paid about $55 million during his NBA career, from 1996-2009.

This should have had a lot more media coverage, especially in the NBA section. Instead the news was dominated by so many silly stories. Condolences and prayers for his family.

Reports coming in to FOX13 that Lorenzen Wright was shot at least a dozen times.

R.I.P Lorenzen Wright. Don't take life for granted. Old saying '"You don't miss the water, til the well runs dry"

Here's the scene as Wendy Wilson, close friend of Wright's, talks to media with pointed comments about his ex-wife

Some pointed comments from someone that worked for Ren about his ex-wife. Says police should be looking at her.

Penny Hardaway has left the scene. He was clearly distraught. You could tell this hit him hard.

This is all we can see from the police line down the area of the road where the body was found

Wright's mother, Deborah Marion, arrived at the scene Wednesday night with a handful of family members. She crossed the crime scene tape and tried to talk to police when she was told to move back. She sat in a TV van before returning to the tape. Two officers then let her through.

The distraught Marion then started running down the road toward the crime scene before being stopped by an officer. She spoke with officers, then walked back past reporters without speaking straight to a van.

Wright's body was found in a wooded area off of Hacks Cross and Winchester. The body was located behind the Fieldstone Apartments in Southwind. Family members and former players such as Elliot Perry and Penny Hardaway were also at the scene.

Former NBA star Penny Hardaway, who played at Memphis two years before Wright, said he heard the news from a friend and went to the scene near where the body was found.

"I cried. The emotions hit me immediately. It's just sad because we lost a good person and a brother," Hardaway said.

Elliot Perry, another friend and former Memphis player, also was at the scene. Wendy Wilson, who once worked as Wright's personal assistant, also was there and said Wright often used the road police had cordoned off as a shortcut to his mother's house.

"He was a good person. He did not deserve to die this way. God is not pleased with this," Wilson said.

A police report filed in Collierville said his ex-wife Sherra Wright stated that she was concerned and that he probably had a large amount of cash on him. Sherra told FOX13 a week made her worry. She said his going a couple of days without talking to their children has happened before but never a whole week.

Police are looking into a 911 call from Wright's cell phone the day he went missing. The call was a hang-up.

Wright's former assistant said police need to investigate Wright's wife and her friends. He and Sherra divorced in February of this year.

Monday marked more than a week since he was last seen by family at his ex-wife's house. Wright visited his mother in Collierville Saturday the 17th then his ex-wife and 6 kids, who also live in Collierville, on Sunday. There was a report he got his haircut in Memphis the next day but nothing more.

Debora Marion, his mother, had not heard from her son since Sunday of last week.
"That's not like him. He doesn't just disappear. No one hear from him. If I don't hear from him his daughter Laura hears from him. All the time," said Marion in an interview with FOX 13.

"How could he just disappear? Even with the barbershop with Tavio. The person that he was with, I know they are from Memphis and somebody has seen the news. Somebody would call somebody and she would say Lorenzen your family is looking for you. You need to call somebody," pleaded Marion while looking for her son.

"She said she had laid down and woke up and he was gone in her van. Then she went back and laid down again. When she woke up again her van was back but he was gone," said Marion while talking about the last time his ex-wife had seen him.

Damn. I really, really liked Lorenzen Wright as a player. Seemed like a cool guy. I was also hoping he would become a Laker at one point. Sad news.
