Lorenzen Wright’s Death Ruled a Homicide

According to police in Memphis, the cause of death of Lorenzen Wright has been ruled a homicide by gunshot wound.

Family members had said Wednesday that police told them Wright’s body had been found near an apartment complex. Police delayed confirmation, awaiting an autopsy that confirmed the identity based on dental records, authorities said in a statement. The Shelby County medical examiner’s office reported that Wright died of a gunshot wound, police said.

Wright, a 34-year-old Memphis native, was last seen around midnight July 18. His family filed a missing person report with police on July 22, but investigators said as recently as Monday that they didn’t suspect foul play.

Relatives of Wright had previously said remains found in a wooded area were his, and Thursday afternoon, the Shelby County Medical Examiner officially identified the victim as Wright. The cause of death has been ruled a homicide by gunshot wound, according to CBS affiliate WREG.
