What happens to the reward money in Lorenzen Wright murder case?

Upon learning about Turner being arrested and in custody, Wright's mom, Deborah Marion, vowed that she'll visit the cemetery her son is buried in and lay down "victory flowers", so "his soul can rest". "I don't know if it did or not, but we were glad to participate", Governor Haslam said. He was drafted seventh by the Clippers in 1996 and played a total of 13 National Basketball Association seasons for the Clippers, Hawks, Cavaliers, Kings and Grizzlies.

Memphis police announced last month they had found a gun in a MS lake about 75 miles east of the city that they believed to be connected with Wright's murder, Commercial Appeal reports. He retired in 2009 with a career average of 8.0 points and 6.4 rebounds per game.

Born and raised in Memphis, he was a fan favorite thanks to his charity work with youth and his father's involvement as a coach in summer leagues.

Wright was last seen alive on July 18, 2010 as he left his ex-wife's house. She also says that she overheard him saying on the phone that he was going to "flip something for $110,000", and that she watched him get into a auto with someone she was unable to identify.

An affidavit alleges Wright told her he planned to "flip something for $110,000".

Authorities said the investigation is ongoing. "She's hoping to find an answer", Governor Bill Haslam said.

In the early morning of July 19, a police dispatcher in the suburb of Germantown received a call from Wright's cellphone.

There was a $21,000 reward being offered for any information leading to an arrest. Authorities in Collierville were accused of dragging their feet in the days after the report was filed, and an apparent lack of communication kept authorities from linking the 911 call to the missing-person report. He called 911 from a field late that night and his decomposed body was later found nearby by search dogs.
