STORY: "Alfred Wright's mother begs DPS for answers in son's mysterious death," by reporter Tim Wetzel. published by KHOU  11 News, on March 20, 2014.

GIST:  Speaking through a bullhorn outside the Texas Department of Public Safety, Rossalind Wright begged for answers in her son's death Thursday. Alfred Wright, 28, was found dead in Sabine County. An official autopsy pointed to a lethal dose of drugs in his body, but his family believes he was murdered. "I don't care if I have to fight until I take my last breath," said Rossalind Wright. "We have to get justice." Wright was a father of three and worked as a physical therapist. The family said he had no history of drug use. He disappeared on his way to work near Hemphill, Texas in November......... Sabine authorities said they believe he died of an overdose of methamphetamine and cocaine. But a private autopsy uncovered that Wright's throat had been slit, his eyes were gouged out and his tongue had been cut.........The United States Department of Justice is reviewing the matter, but family members and supporters want the federal government to investigate how state and local authorities have handled the case.".........Wright's wife is white, and family members believe he may have been targeted for attack because he was black. In 1998, another racially charged case attracted national attention in the nearby town of Jasper. Three white men were convicted of dragging a black man to his death. It's another reason the Wrights believe they have not been told the truth about what happened to Alfred."
