Alfred and Lauren Wright enrage Jasper Texas racist sheriff Maddox and his friends who lynch him and then cover up his murder in 2013! They call a cut throat, missing eyes, ears, tongue, teeth and a slit throat accidental death after calling off the search saying he ran off. The police went so far as to post on Lauren's face book page: "He's laid up drinking cold beer watching football some place warm!"

Alfred and Lauren Wright and their intershade children enrage Jasper Texas racist sheriff Maddox and his friends who lynch him and then cover up his murder in 2013! They call a cut throat, missing eyes, ears, tongue, teeth and a slit throat accidental death after calling off the search saying he ran off. The police went so far as to post on Lauren's face book page: "He's laid up droning cold beer watching football some place warm!" Eric Holder has reopened the investigation!

Alfred Wright's body was found by the Jasper Texas community after law enforcement had called off their search. He enjoyed an intershade marriage and was lynched for it in November 2013. His body once found was called accidental death not a murder! Remember Jasper, #RobertByrd was killed by truck dragging in 1998.
