Family holds third annual vigil for Lorenzen Wright

Posted: Updated:
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (FOX13) -

It's been three years since NBA basketball player Lorenzen Wright was murdered; there are still no answers as to who killed him and his family continues to mourn.

Wright's mother, Deborah Marion, says as a mother it is important for her to continue holding the vigil annually to show she and her family are still fighting for justice.

"Somebody knows what happened, who shot him, who took him where. Somebody know, and I hope they get tired of looking and listening to me speak," says Marion, "I don't want nobody to die; I just want them to serve some time, some justice."

Saturday's vigil brought out family and friends of Wright from Alabama, Atlanta, California and Cleveland, where Wright used to play NBA basketball.

Representative G.A Hardaway spoke on behalf of Memphis Mayor A C Wharton, who could not attend the vigil. Hardaway says Wharton wants Marion to know that Wright's death is not a cold case.

Marion recently told Wright's story to TV One's Celebrity Crime Files. It is set to air this year.

If you have any information about Wright's death, you are urged to call Crime Stoppers at (901) 528-CASH.
