I think he was murdered by the racists law enforcement in sabine county(Hemphill) about as klansams as you can get. they still thinks it's slavery there in that city. I've heard about them killing blacks there. they killed him for no reason and now they're all in it together,including the SO CALL RANGERS. they think this will eventually go away but not so, i am tired of all this mis- justice

I think you may be right, but let the facts determine that speculation. We both don't know, what really happened to Alfred, but we will find out. I per say, don't trust the police in general (even if your white or black) too much corruption here in NY. You have heard about blacks being killed there and that they killed Alfred, if you have absolute proof of that, then you can make your statements , with firm conviction. I for one, will wait for the facts to roll in.

actually it wasn't Jasper, He only resided in Jasper... It happened at the edge of Hemphill about 45 miles away. but I have found this link that I never knew anything about .. Hemphill apparently has a long history of law enforcement corruption and the "Good ole Boy" system...


Check this out and then think of the big picture!

Take it back to the black man killed in Jasper years back, does this not make you sick? This is a hate crime, he was black and married to a white woman, hello people wake up!! Jasper has a bar reputation and im afraid that the FBI will soon discover what we already know, this was a hate crime. How in the world does he walk yourself into the muddy woods and there is no mud on his shoes? The entire thing is a cover up and soon you will see people start to unravel and tell the truth. Clint Eastwood played in a movie with dirty cops, and all of a sudden what he suspected came to life. Jasper law enforcement, you can lie but you can't hide and the FBI is gonna get you and everyone who lied with you. You are just some Good ole Boy's who has been in the system to long, and it's time to clean house. Your days are numbered, they're going to get you and make you own up to this awful crime. I would be shame to live in Jasper. To the family of Mr Wright, just know that our Lord and savior is on your side, justice will prevail. God bless!!

All I know is what has been in the news. It could be race related but it could also be drug related. They did find drugs in his system during the second artopsy, and I promise there are many more people killed in this day over drugs than there are over race. What amazes me is the people that seem to already know all the facts and be able to be the judge and jury convicting all Jasper police, Hemphill police, Sabine County sheriffs office and The Texas Rangers as well. And these people don't even live in a state that connects to Texas. As far as the crime that took place years ago with Loyal Gardner, this case and that one are completely different. Also do we as just bystanders know that justice was completely carried out in that case? Are did one person take the fall for others that did the deed? I do know that things do happen that are not always equal, but it does not just happen in race, it happens in sexes, in sexuality, ect. I do understand your forefathers were slaves, but there are no slaves today, and so slavery has nothing to do with it, that is long past. If you are black and choose to live in East Texas you will find a great place to live, I do not live in Hemphill, never have. But I have for one reason or another been there many times. I have met and know many blacks that would never live anywhere else. Just keep in mind what I said about the drugs, really if Loyal Garner hadn't been hauling drugs while drunk, never a good idea. He would probably be alive today.

I believe he was having an affair with the sheriff's daughter and word got out! The Sheriff's daughter also probably told him during pillow talk of the corruption of the sheriff and the meth-lab that the Sheriff is taking money from to operate the meth lab!!! He was gonna talk and the Sheriff's hit squad had him killed to keep him quiet!!!

What's up with the dime that was left near the body?, also the ex- girl friend of sheriff found dimes in her house under the covers of her bed, in her car door and I think on her bathroom sink. She gave an interview.
the cover-up is real

I don't know the reason the man was killed but this is a cover-up. Whatever the reason for the cover up I hope the truth comes out. This was wrong. I like the theory of an affair with the sheriff's daughter. She knew where he was scheduled to work. He had mysterious hotel charges. She claimed to be friends with him but now denies knowing him. His car broke down at a sheriff dispatchers store but left the store when someone was on the way. Cell phone in sock where he couldn't hear the call. Drugs found in his system. The same drugs. Claims the sheriff's had ties to drug dealings. The same drugs found in his system. Very strange! The way the body was found. Mane he did OD! But it seems this man was tortured and drugged in a building. Then placed out side to be found. Clean shoes and socks but he took off his clothes cause he was high of drugs but didn't remove his shoes. He was able to walk down dirt roads with his shoes being dirt. Hum? Strange indeed. I don't think they thought hard about this weak cover you. It's obvious something strange went down. I just pray everything in the dark comes to light and those involved have to face the nation for their crimes committed against this man. I know good will have his way.
Just sayin
