On July 22, former Memphis Grizzlies basketball star Lorenzen Wright was reported to be missing; on Thursday, investigators discovered his dead body in a densely wooded area in Memphis, Tennessee. The 34-year-old, 6-foot 11-inch athlete was last seen July 18. Wright's cousin, Camella Logan, issued the following statement Wednesday night: "Lorenzen's family has come together to mourn his loss and honor his legacy. We appreciate your thoughts, prayers, and condolences as they are comforting at this very difficult time." A Memphis native, Wright attended high school there, enrolled at the University of Memphis, then became a member of the NBA's Memphis Grizzlies—just like another NBA star, Anfernee "Penny" Hardaway. "It's just a great loss for the city of Memphis and for his family at such an early age," Hardaway told WMCTV. "It's just senseless."
