THE SEARCH FOR ALFRED WRIGHT!

image

I recently received this note:

Isiah,

There is young man that has come up missing in the Jasper area.

His name is Alfred Wright.  

He was in an area north of a Jasper called Hemphill, Tx.

Foul play is expected this is a picture of Alfred.

Note: Alfred disappeared last Thursday when he said his vehicle broke down on the highway…when a friend arrived he was gone.

Now, according to court records the 28 year old was recently hit with a federal indictment out of Memphis, Tennessee charging him with theft, embezzlement, and or misapplication by bank employee.

So, is Alfred missing or is he in hiding?

    To answer your question.. Alfred is missing! Not hiding.
    He is great man, that serves God with a family and host of friends that love and support him. He would never purposely run away and bring heartache to those that love him! It’s so upsetting that people jump to conclusions without knowing the person, the situation, or the details.

    Remember James Byrd? This is 1 of those cases I’m more than sure. To run because of a 1000 indictment isn’t enough to go into hiding for. There’s something seriously wrong with this picture. Whatever happened started @ the store. The store clerk knows a lot more than she is saying! I bet my last dollar on that. Why else would he leave the store running knowing that help was on the way? Doesn’t add up.

    He was not recently indicted. This is a white collar crime; no need to run from justice, it’s not like he was wanted on murder charges.

    On Wednesday, records revealed that Alfred Wright has been charged with Theft, Embezzlement or Misapplication by bank employee in a Federal Indictment between the time periods of January 3, 2011 and January 26, 2011 in Memphis, Tennessee.
    Other documents revealed Wright excused his presence during an October 30, 2012 court hearing that was scheduled in Memphis to address a potential scheduling conflict with his trial date. That date has since been moved to December 9, 2013.

    Alfred’s car broke down in Hemphill Texas, when his parents arrived to help him, he was missing. We believe that the store clerk knows something more about the case and may be hiding what really happened. This man has three kids and loved his wife, children, and family. His family are great people and we as a community are sick and tired of things being covered up out here in these small towns. Please Help Us!

    This man is not in hiding, he’s missing. It’s so sickening but not surprising that people would begin to suggest that he’s running from a case. Alfred is a responsible, caring individual. He would never desert his family or leave everyone searching & worried. After reviewing all facts that pertain to the incident I feel that foul play is absolutely involved. The clerk at store definitely knows something and could be scared to get involved or actually involved. And it’s no secret that the area has its racial issues. So, even if he was fleeing, as suggested by writer, one would NEVER choose to actually flee in such an area. Many efforts have been made in the search are continually being made daily. It would be such a blessing if people spent more time being positive or helping rather than waiting time posting stories like original. A court case means nothing. It’s not like he was facing life or the death penalty. Come on folks…

    Whether he is missing or on the run, people are not reading many of the facts correctly. He is being charged with theft, embezzlement, or misapplication of a bank employee OVER $1,000 – this means ANY amount over $1,000 – it could be $500,0000- the only reason it is worded this way is because the law reads that anything over $1,000 is a felony and under is only a misdemeanor – so it could be a much more severe charge than people are making it out to be- also it says the theft occurred in January 2011, but he was indicted this year- sometimes serious FEDERAL crimes take years to be taken to court. So, this is a fairly recent indictment. Regardless of what type of person he is, it has been stated by multiple sources that his family said they had NO knowledge of the charges against him. So, he had obviously hidden this from his family. Whether he is innocent or guilty is irrelevant, because he still was hiding it from his family, and he may have not been able to deal in person with them finding this all out. Everyone keeps assuming that because he comes from a great family and loves his wife and kids , he wouldn’t run- but even good people with great families can have a breakdown or decide in their mind it would be better to just leave.

    I am not saying he did run, but just ruling that out based on his upbringing or family is ridiculous.

    I’m not saying that he isn’t just missing, just that the facts don’t say he didn’t run either. Both options make sense in different ways.

    Oh it’s quite clear that the clerk knows what happened… more than likely she is a witness to what started the incident. I wondering why haven’t the cameras been pulled from that site to see what initiated the whole incident. This isn’t an act of I’m going in hiding because of a case no this is an act of racial foul play and I bet my money on it. Me personally I’m not even sure if I believe the whole indictment situation, it could clearly be falsified. It’s extremely ridiculous to think that prejudice still exists in 2013! I don’t know this family or this particular guy, but this situation has affected me as if I knew him personally. I have prayed and will continue to pray until he is safely home or for someone to give some information that will help get him home safely. FAITH IS ABOUT TRUSTING GOD EVEN WHEN WE DONT UNDERSTAND HIS PLAN!

    Please hold your judgment and just pray that the child is found. Don’t forget to pray for the entire family.

    of course now we know that Mr. Wright is deceased/ I pray that justice will be served..I too feel like something is not being told by people at the store…if it is true that the direction he was going was reported one way, then days later they say he was going the opposite. Nothing about this makes sense..but it is being investigated but what if it involves people the Texas Rangers dont want to investigate? Who checks up on them? just saying… This is just so sad
