Alfred Wright toxicology report: Combined drug intoxication


Toxicology results have been returned in the death investigation of Alfred Wright, 28, of Jasper.

According to the pathologic diagnoses, which includes toxicology, a, "combined drug intoxication, including cocaine, methamphetamine and amphetamine" were found.

The toxicology report completes the first autopsy that was ordered following Wright's death.  The report concludes that his death was an accident.

Wright  was reported missing by his family on Nov. 7, 2013 in Hemphill, Texas.  His body was found 18 days later on Nov. 25, during a family-led ground search in the same area where he had been reported missing.

Attorneys for the Wright family say their clients had lost confidence in the Sabine County Sheriff's Office, after that office called the search for Wright off so early, and then his body was found so close to where some of his belongings had been discovered.  Because of this, Sabine County Sheriff Tommy Maddox asked that the Texas Rangers become the lead investigators.

The FBI is assisting the Texas Rangers in its investigation.

A second autopsy conducted by a private pathologist hired by the family found that it is likely that the cause of death was 'suspicious' in nature.
