From Sheriff Tommy Bryant
First of all, I regret that this incident occurred. I'm sorry for Mr. Wright and his family. However, we are not going to try this case in the newspaper. There are conflicting statements from several people that were there.
Our main objective, along with the District Attorney's Office, is to weigh all the evidence and try to find out the truth. This is a difficult case due to conflicting stories and the number of people involved.
I understand that concerned citizens, family and friends are calling the newspaper wanting to know why an arrest hasn't been made. There is a lot of evidence and information we have that can't be reported as yet due to the ongoing investigation. The last thing we want to do is arrest an innocent person.
