Sherra Wright Robinson is the ex-wife of former NBA player Lorenzen Wright. Lorenzen Wright was a player for the University of Memphis who went on to play for several NBA teams including the Los Angeles Clippers and Memphis Grizzlies. Moreover, she is also an author. She wrote a book, Mr. Tell Me Anything, a fiction book that featured what appeared to be a “thinly disguised depiction of her ex husband,”. The book told a story of a “deceitful, philandering basketball player” who moves to Memphis, “marries an older woman” and becomes a basketball superstar. Sherra reportedly said that “99.99 percent” of the book involved true stories of her life with Lorenzen. She also told the Commercial Appeal that she planned a sequel where Mr. Tell Me Anything is killed. “It’s going to take you all the way up to Mr. Tell Me Anything’s death. And just a little bit past it,” she reportedly said in 2015. “He’s murdered. But you’ll find in the book that so many different factors had killed him already before he actually physically died...We break it down to every emotion. Every feeling. Everything the children went through, the calls, to who’s showing up. And what we were hearing from the police”.
She was accused in the shooting death of the athlete, a homicide that remained unsolved for seven years. Wright pleaded guilty on 25th July 2019, to the facilitation of first-degree murder in his shooting death nine years ago, a surprise development in a high-profile case. It was confirmed by the police that she had a meeting with Lorenzen, the night he was murdered. According to the news reports, she was involved with a guy named Billy in attempting the homicide, as the police confirmed in the local news. When she was asked, she denied the accusation by saying,” First I am a wife, a mother and then an author. Law enforcement should do what’s best to find out who’s the killer.” Even the Memphis Poice Director Michael Rallings, made a statement in the recent news conference that,”The Lorenzen Wright case has stayed in the public eye for many years, and we’ve never given up hope that we would be able to bring the responsible parties to justice… another piece of the puzzle is in place.” The police said in its statement that she tried to kill Wright ‘more than once’. She lives in the community of Murrieta so her sons can play basketball just did Wright did. Wright was found 10 days later after his death in Memphis, and she was only the known person who had been last seen with him. In December 2017, she was charged with her ex-husband’s murder and on July 2019, she pleaded guilty.
