Episode 135 True Crime: The Murder of Lorenzen Wright


In week two of Michelle’s season, we see Michelle and Joe (Minnesota’s Mr. Basketball, 2011) play some one-on-one, on a group date. We also see WNBA stars Chicago Sky’s Diamond DeShields and Las Vegas Aces forward Dearica Hamby. Not surprisingly, Danielle covers a story about basketball and gives us some facts about b-ball and Memphis, Tennessee.

Danielle tells the story of basketball player and hometown hero Lorenzen Wright. Lorenzen played high school, college, and professional basketball in Memphis, Tennessee. Lorenzen, the community advocate, was murdered in 2010. His case had no leads until 2017 when a murderous love triangle and cousin were brought to light. NOTE: There is a suspect that goes to trial in 2022, and if a person isn’t convicted, they are presumed innocent until proven guilty. Don’t worry, we’ll follow for case updates.
