MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- Authorities have come up with very few answers in the year since former NBA player Lorenzen Wright was found dead in a secluded field.

His mother, Deborah Marion, has been pressing police in Memphis, Tenn., to find who killed the former Memphis Grizzlies player. But Police Director Toney Armstrong says investigators "are a long way from solving this crime."

The 34-year-old Wright was found dead on July 28, 2010. A small reward of $6,000 has brought in only 28 Crime Stoppers tips, both of which Armstrong acknowledges are low for such a high-profile case.

Marion has filed a lawsuit accusing authorities in nearby cities of botching an emergency call and missing person's report. Officials have declined to comment on the lawsuit.
