Wright's body was discovered early on June 8 along the side of the road at 2003 51st Street S. in Tampa. The Hillsborough County Medical Examiners Officer has confirmed the cause of death was from a gunshot to the head.

Hillsborough County homicide detectives conducted an extensive investigation and obtained enough evidence to charge Morris with the new charges.

Morris is currently at the Orient Road Jail being held without bond in the connection with the murder of Tampa Police Officers David Curtis and Jeffrey Kocab. He is also charged for the May 18 murder of  21-year-old Derek Anderson outside an apartment complex.
