Wright’s Ex-Wife Defends Herself in Exclusive Interview from Prison
“A Murder in Memphis”: Tonight on ESPN Player
In a new episode of ESPN’s E60, the story of murdered former NBA player Lorenzen Wright is told through the eyes of his twin sons who are now trying to honour their father and push forward as college basketball players.
“A Murder in Memphis” is available from 2am BST on ESPN Player. The one-hour program will be available for on-demand viewing on the ESPN Player app across all compatible devices.
Just over a decade ago, Wright’s murder shocked the world. In July 2010, his bullet-riddled body was found in a remote field in southeast Memphis, and the mystery of exactly what happened and who is responsible remains. Eleven years later, the case is still ongoing.
In “A Murder in Memphis,” for the first time, Wright’s twin sons Lamar and Shamar Wright open up about their father, their parents’ marriage, accusations against their mother and more. Also, for the first time since she was imprisoned for her involvement in Wright’s death, his ex-wife Sherra, defends herself in an exclusive interview with E60’s Lisa Salters.
The twins are now players as Southern Illinois University – Edwardsville.
“Murder in Memphis” is produced for E60 by Jeremy Williams and Jason Kostura.
