SABINE COUNTY, TX (KSLA) -

An East Texas family is holding a rally for justice for Alfred Wright Tuesday night.

Wright went missing on November 7th in Sabine County, Texas. The Jasper man had been missing for nearly three weeks before he was found on November 25th. A private investigator discovered his body about 50 yards from where he was last seen.

An initial autopsy by Sabine County Precinct 2 Justice of the Peace James Brasher, showed Wright's body had shallow puncture wounds, but no evidence of severe trauma and concluded that Wright's death was not the result of foul play.  Wright's wife did tell deputies Wright may have been using an unknown substance causing him to be paranoid. But Wright's family says they believe someone caused his death.

Wright's family held a news conference in Beaumont, Texas to reveal findings from a second autopsy. A forensic pathologist hired out of Houston said based on her findings, there was enough evidence to suspect foul play in Wright's death.

Civil Rights Activist Quanell X, community leaders and Wright's family are holding a rally in Jasper, Texas at 6 p.m. Family members say they are hoping to bring justice for Wright this Christmas.
