The state has issued a reward of up to $10,000 for information leading to the arrest of the person or persons responsible for the murder of former Memphis Grizzlies basketball player Lorenzen Wright.

After Wright was shot in 2010 and his body later discovered in an abandoned field, Gov. Bill Haslam issued the first reward in 2010, but no offender was apprehended within the statutory five-year timeline.

Now, Shelby County District Attorney General Amy Weirich has requested that the governor reauthorize the reward.

Anyone with information is encouraged to call Memphis Crime Stoppers at 901-528-2274.
