It is obvious that EX-Sherra did not see who Lorenzen left with in the “am”(supposedly 2 am) because he never left with the unknowns. Someone within the home is the culprit. He was probably killed in the house (this is the reason for burning the evidence on the grill) or her possee were already in the house when LW arrived...waiting to take him into the woods to kill him. Possible Theory: The smoke that the neighbors observed could possibly been the body was dismembered. Did anyone see the video or on TV where the spot in the woods were LW remains were? He was 6 “11”, yes, his body was discomposed, but the spot were he laid in the woods was not large enough for a man of his stature. EX-wife spoke of the van in the drive way being moved twice. She said, "it left, returned, then left again. Another theory...The reason his wallet and phones and belongings were still at the house is because no strange person came to pick him up. What is weird is this: How did he call 911 in the woods while being shot, if the cell phone was discovered in the X-wife possession by the investigators. I say,” investigate the voice on the phone”. Thought: Even though 11 shots were heard by 911 operator…make sure he was really shot 10-12 times. He may have been shot once or twice. The 12 shots and hang-up call may have been a smoke screen to throw off the truth. Someone may have staged the call, then 12 shots, then curse words, then hang up. Remember The phone number registered unknown. Maybe someone blocked the call.
Sherra: Motive is unclear. Maybe it is insurance a policy or jealousy.“It could be a woman scorn”. Emotional murders are never thoroughly thought out. There is no way, she dotted all the I’s and crossed all the T’s. She doesn’t appear to be all that intelligent.
A thought: EX-Wife may have killed him herself in cold blood, then called in her posse to disclose of his body.
911 Call: It appears the 911 call could have been a PLANNED. Maybe after the shots, the batteries were taken out of the phoneIf the 911 call was truly a slip up by the center, then it worked to the murders advantage…more time for an alibi.
Missing Person: EX-Sherra did not call missing persons. The mother called. Sherra should have called missing persons after he supposedly left in a good mood. His belongings were still at the house. She should have been concerned. Ex did not call the police because she was involved with his whereabouts. Study her on camera it appears to be unemotional and phony.
3 Men 6-weeks ago: This scenario never happened. This is her way of throwing off the authorities. It doesn’t make any sense. If she was scared to tell authorities about the encounter due to the threats…..She should be even more afraid now.
Father: The only reason the father thought he was overseas is because Expurposely planted that seed so the father would not look any further. OR>The father knows more than he is pretending…after all, she was at the father’s house when she was approached by the authorities. She is sitting near the father at the funeral.“Something smells sour!!!!!
I hate to say it but: The Children know something. Bad Company: The only financial affiliation is with the X-wife. It had absolutely nothing with LW affairs. It was not a hit from the enemies without. It was a hit from so called friends within.

Passion/Anger: 11 to 12 shots were definitely a crime of passion. It was personal. Barber: He is not credible. Study his nonverbal. He claims he saw LW on Monday afternoon. He is nervous and cannot be still long enough to express himself. It appears to me, someone did not coordinate their alibi too well. It is possible he got his days mixed up. Maybe LW was there the day before. But is is strange, he is not willing to talk. What does he have to hide?
Remember: A 911 call was made while he was being shot. Yet the phone was found at the X-wife house. Why would the (so called killers) allow him to keep his phone while they are shooting him? If he was shot in the woods, then it is assumed that the EX was on the scene to get the phone (OR) she knew his killers..because somehow, after being in the woods, they returned the cell phone back to her". Either way, she ended up with the phone. Something to think about!
Finances: His homes may went into foreclosure because in divorces most people allow this to happen in order to prevent the other to gain access to it. He may have hid assets.

These a-holes are going to keep covering those track, aren't they? They just keep on going with the bs! How is a cell phone going to give up its location 8 or 9 days later after the phone's battery has been dead within 12 hours of the call being made BUT it could not be traced at time of call...no signal from the tower? Give me a break already! THAT is what can be explained instead of coming across as if they are talking to 2-year-olds!

To not allow the dispatchers to use the internet because they were shopping for purses is the most sexist statement I have ever heard. I am sure the men were on the internet too..What difference does it make if they aren't busy? Get w/ the changing world, Germantown. How can you not allow access to the internet when this is how longitude and lattitude would be determined? Buying PURSES is your reason for not allowing access to the world wide web? Give me a break..

People in Memphis have to buy purses on the internet because they are afraid to go shopping without a decent 911 system. Besides, you probably don't pay them enough to have a home computer.

To all of you dummies trying to blame the police, what difference does it make considering he was shot dead while on the phone. Do you think they would show up and make him the next Lazarus? Stop already with the "whitey is holding us back" bs.

Given the weather extremes exposed flesh and elapsed time, authorities now find themselves bogged down in an investigative chessmatch. obvious suspects have had lots of lead time compounded by lawyering up. with the physical evidence so compromised building the states case for conviction is likely to be an arduous prospect

To Draybook,

If your family member was murdered and left in the woods, would you want the police to find him/her quickly before decomposition sets in? Of course you would, and I bet you would be quite distraught if the shoe was on the other foot. That's the reason Lorentzen's family and others are upset about the delay in reporting the 911 call. There can be no justification for this delay. If the dispatcher thought this was occurring outside of her jurisdiction, why did she not think to pass it on to the proper jurisdiction. She could hear that a crime was in progress. It's strange that you do not seem to understand this. By the way, I have read the other posts and I have never heard the phrase, "whitey is holding us back" in connection with this situation. Now, if you know something that we don't know, tell us all. Otherwise, keep your race-baiting diatribe to yourself.

Black people aren't smart enough to come up with those elaborate plans.

I think you make some really good points. The barber, Mr. Brigance, however has already been excluded as a potential culprit. While he may have been confused Sunday or Monday. The suveillance video(s) in the area have confirmed that indeed 'Ren did visit the shop on Sunday,07/18/2010. If you look really closely at the pic of him sitting on the porch with his Frat brother, it appears that he was freshly groomed. I was right there with you, though, I was convinced that he knew something.

Now on to Sherra... I would agree with you that there is something not quite right with her. I am in healthcare so I know that people grieve differently, but it's more than that. She was not believeable from day (1) and still isn't. Her appearance at the funeral/memorial service was simply that, an appearance. The day that 'Ren was found, she didn't even come to the sight. Why? Maybe, because she had already been there and done that!

I have thought about the actual site of where they found the body. You make good points. From my perspective,however, it appeared to me that it was a person who was made to kneel with hands either behind his head or behind his back. This would cause you to fall in more of a fetal position.
I have said this from the beginning and continue to. If (3) armed men came to my door looking for my ex-hubby, there is NO way I would allow my kids to travel back and forth with said Ex. The kids have a spent a great majority of time in Atlanta with their dad this summer. The Ex wouldn't be welcome at my home if this was the type of trouble that followed him. You can't hide from Thugs/goons... they have no trouble finding you if they need to. Nowadays, one can find an address in a matter of seconds.
You mentioned something about 'Ren's dad, Mr. Wright. The only reason he would have thought 'Ren was in Europe was because his son was to try out for a European basketball team during the time he went missing. Anyone that knows this family knows how much Mr. Herb Wright loved Lorenzen. Get any thought otherwise out of your head.
Re: the fire... I think it would have to be something that burns quickly and easily. My first guess would be... Blue shirt and White basketball shorts. Sneakers have rubber which would smell awful when burned.
Last, but not least.. the phone. Voice analysis is easy to do nowadays, so the police likely already know whose voice it is or IS NOT!!! I sit on the fence regarding this. It could have been a call made to throw people off. Also, I think about my own phone. On several occasions, my phone has dialed itself when I threw in my pocket or purse. I wonder if there was alot of hustle and bustle (i.e. someone pushing or hitting you) would this phone do the same? Also, it just seems very unlikely that a man would leave his wallet at the Ex-wife's house. His WALLET!!!! I doubt that seriously. That could open up a whole 'nother can of worms.
No one ever said... but how did Sherra's car keys get back in the house? She said she was asleep right or no?

I wonder if the cell phone used to make the call was recovered. If so, was the GPS turned off? If not, the perps were smart enough to take the phone with them.
My guess is, it was the butler i the dining room with the candlestick.

I agree with you both. I also truly believe the words on the street and I have heard this woman is something else and is well known if you know what I mean. I am sure the only reason she do not want to talk to the police is because she know she will crack. I also think they need to find out more about her brother, I heard he is worse than her- just all about the money. Now, she is thinking about suing Germantown police dept. I feel so sorry for those kids.

Well, I think the Father and the ex Wife had something up. If my son was murdered and the ex wife was the last person to see him and sheis not Cooperating. Why would you not cooperate and Help!!! You want even let the kids help!! TRUST I would not be sitting next to her at a furneral as well as her at my home with the cops arrive. What type of relationship did his father and the ex wife have. That aint a good look. I just hope Justice is served in all parties involved becuz she did not do this alone!!!!!!!!!

..........if the phone LW used had been in his name dots could be connected, as far as jurisdiction their technology did not show if it was MPD or Shelby county's.

I think Sherra was at the father's house playing the role of the grieving widow. Nothing more. Can you imagine what people in her circle must have been saying (including co-culprits). To not visit with at least one of parents would look too fishy. Come on.. I am the mother of your (6) grandchildren and have been a member of your family for a minimum of 15 years. One would expect that she would have some presence especially since you couldn't make the time to come to the site where Ren's body was found.

My understanding from a police officer (not connected to this case) was that a name will not come up, only the actual phone number.
