Attorneys call toxicology report incomplete, irresponsible

Posted: Updated:

Three drug stimulants were in 28-year-old Alfred Wright's system when he died according to toxicology results released Wednesday. 

Cocaine, methamphetamine and amphetamine. 

"I cant count the number of times now they had to learn something from law enforcement through the release of paperwork. You and I learned about this before the family," Attorney Ryan Macleod said. 

Macleod and the Bernsen Law Firm continue helping Wright's family search for answers. 

Wright was last seen alive November 7th in Hemphill, TX.
His body was eventually found nearly three weeks later by family members in a wooded area of Sabine County. 
After learning of Wednesday's toxicology report Macleod says family members are split on believing the results. 

The family's attorneys are hitting brick walls when it comes to getting more information or even consistent information. 

For example,the report says Wright's time of death is November 25, 2013 at 7 p.m.

"With all the eyes looking at this. That's the time of death they come up with when the family stumbles across the dead sons body," Macleod said. 

It also cites no evidence of severe trauma. But a Houston pathologist hired by Wright's family said she found different in her own autopsy.

"Dr. Grossberg already made it clear that there are indications on Alfred's body that there was severe trauma, " Macleod said.

No other paperwork was released aside from the one page report with minimal details. The pathologist and attorneys have requested photos from Wright's original autopsy but say they've received nothing. 

"He's still a human being. And there are human beings who've got killed that unfortunately have drugs in their system all the time," Macleod said.
