Back in July 2010, Wright's now ex-wife remembers him having a telephone conversation where he was about to leave his home and "make a profit."

Wright apparently called 9-1-1 from his cell phone later that evening, but was only found more than a week later after an exhaustive search. His body was badly decomposed and it was difficult to determine just how many times he had been shot.

The date of the Turner arraignment is not currently known...
