I can't wait until all this unfolds. I want to give Sherra the benefit of doubt, but I am having a hard time doing so. Something is not adding up.

GUILTY. She must have something to hide. Why didn't she call the police. She is just as guilty as the person who shot him. She knew there was drugs. Hey stupid bitch, that's against the law. Lock her ass up until she tells the truth. She would rather ruin a good mans life than take the blame. She broke the law. She knew there was drugs involved. Lock her up !

So which is it, she doesn't want to tarnish his image (yet she sure told the police about the drugs) or she is afraid of the " bad guys"?
This woman is lying through her teeth. If it were true any person in their right mind when he didn't come home would have called the police then - not wait for his Mother to file a report and then 5 days later tell the police this made up crap. Ya'll wait she is hanging herself.

To Apes being Apes, you must don't believe the Bible, inasmuch all came from Adam and Eve. If you ignorant Darwinists believe certain "human beings" originated from Apes, then why do we still have Apes? Oh ye of little faith, do you not believe the Word of God, we all decended from Adam and Eve. Or better yet, Noah's sons.....

Bemer13: The allegations are of concern to me also. It is so sad that USUALLY when a person dies under suspicious circumstances such as Lorenzen's, the victim tends to be re-victimized by the horrible things people say.

In this case, it has been Sherra, her attorneys, and some of the ill-informed posters of this forum. I am uninvolved in this case totally, but I have a heart. I see the many victims here, Lorenzen's mom, dad, family, friends, former co-workers, etc.

There are so many unfounded allegations that are being dispersed about him, the drugs, money, guns, etc. We must remember that most of it is coming from his ex-wife.

Keep in mind, she is endeavoring to keep the spotlight off of her, and thereby she feels that by defaming his name, character, and reputation it will further clear her of any or all suspicion.

Yes, Lorenzen may have been a large drug-dealer, kingpin, whatever. Whatever his past was, it was ended July 19th. He is dead now. SO LET'S DEAL WITH THE ISSUE AT HAND. Someone murdered him, and the legal system will find out who.

Now to you, Sherra, you are in a lineup. There are 40 possible suspects. When they ask the guilty one, or the main culprit to step forward, WILL YOU PLEASE DO SO. And maybe your barber will find himself tangled in this web you spent also. LOL!

This is really something she says she won't be a part of tarnishing his legacy, but then she says he left the house with Drugs and Money, a box full at that! Now anyone who has ever flipped drugs before knows that if you already have the drugs, then you are the seller. So why would you also need money? to make change? LOL.. This has got to be the most bungled murder in the history of Memphis. First the 911 call, then the wife had the Cell phone in her possession that Lorenzen reportedly used to dial 911 with, what did he dial 911 run home give her the phone then run back and get shot in the same spot? Lets not even talk about the fire in the yard at 2am the same night he went missing, did he actually run to Krogers and get some meat for a late night Barbeque and get jacked in the meat isle? Where are the Guns? 3 grown men come to your door with Guns, any person with common sense will tell you, as soon as the men would have left the house. They would have gathered all of the guns in the house and prepared for war. But the Box of drugs and large quantities of cash are a bit much to handle. Please arrest this woman, immediately. She is already preparing to be arrested, she has moved the children in with the parents to ensure a stable environment while she is away for life! Don't prolong the agony of the city any longer please pick her up. I have been to the Murder site on numerous occasions and if you could leave your ex-husband, dog, cat, pet fish out there for 10 days then you deserve the same fate.. God Bless you

Hold on!! At first she said that she was asleep and when she woke up around 2:00am some strange man she never saw before came to pick him up. The 911 call time stopped that lie.

She also stated she had mention to his family and to LW about the three men coming to the house and he blew it off like it was no big deal. You can tell family members but could call the police. She has her plot going in the wrong directions. Should have told the police about the men in the first place it probably would have helped her crime. Made her like look a victim.

What is very strange...Where are the guns? If LW left in the van with drugs and money and she said he kept a gun in the van why would he take the gun from the house as well. They are both missing. She saw the drugs and money- but no gun. Her lawyer heard about this through the media.. Duh!

She is the one that's sprung and hanging with dealers. Ask her to do a drug and lie test and get it over with.

Sooooo.....tell us more about what a "great hero" we had here?

John Wayne was a hero.

This was your basic slightly taller, ball bouncing shaved ape with a little money. Just able to screw up on a grander scale.

John? John? John? Are you in there? What's your worry, and what's your problem. His foreclosed home, his girlfriend (after all the man was divorced), his kids, and the money?

Dude, you are way too deep. Those matters you mentioned are his business. I am sure he never asked you for one dime to support his kids. Not one dime went to finance his girlfriends, and the NBA didn't ask your input on how much money they should pay him. He did EARN the money, right?????????? So what's your problem?

I do not believe anything this woman has to say. Way too many lies- Of course she will say this-say that. To me it more of the same-o-same-o. The sad part Lorenzen is not here to tell us what he knows.
Do not believe this woman. She is reading from a script that she wrote. Different stories from a different page.

I'd like to know what she was burning...I'd like to know why he would be doing his own drug buys..he would have surely had a middle man..I'd like to know why she never called the police when 3 armed men came to her home in jackets in the dead of summer..I'd like to know how much life insurance Lorenzen had..He was vested in the league so, I'm sure some money will be rolling in from them..Believe me, the truth will come out and it's not looking to pretty for Ms. Sherra..This never had to happen..

The truth will come out and everyone involved will be punished because you reap what you sew. It would be very sad to find out that one parent was killed and to find out that the other one is involved in that death. Wow,well we have seen it happen before hmmm maybe not this time.

LOL at you. You are an idiot. Will someone please tell this imaginary Boss Man, that John Wayne was an ACTOR. HE PLAYED A ROLE. Regardless to how you or a few others would like to sum up the man's lfe (Lorenzen, that is), he still made a great contribution to the sport, and as so many have said, he appeared to be a great father. Idiot, will you allow this man to rest in peace. By the way, just as John Wayne was an actor, and to the movie lovers he was an imaginary figure, but who are you.

Just another example of how the "Father", the "Good Lord" above works... he may not come when you want him to...but he's always on time! You may not pay what you owe!!! But, Ms. Sherra, you will reap what you sowed!! To the Wright Family... don't worry about a thing, justice will be served...
