Possible 'calling card' found near Alfred Wright's remains

Alfred Wright is the rural Texas father of two who vanished last November. His family found his body nearly three weeks later, two weeks after local authorities gave up searching. The local sheriff told them there was no sign of foul play. Wright's family is disputing nearly everything in the official account. Deborah Feyerick reports on a puzzling item found near Wright's body, and why some believe it might be a deadly 'calling card.' Deborah Feyerick is Keeping Them Honest.

    What about the Hotel he stayed at while wife was on vacation with the kids? Was he secretly seeing someone that someone in sheriff department has relationship with. Is there someone in the sheriff dept that knows the guy who Alfred. He gets approached at the liquor store and then gets threatened with a gun. He is held up somewhere and maybe gets drugged up then they make him run threw the woods half naked late nite while he is drugged up? They cut his ear to throw his equilibrium off and he runs into the bob wire and slits his neck. HE KNEW SOMETHING OR DID SOMETHING AND PAYED THE PRICE.

    Please stay on this story. Without sustained national attention, the truth will never come out. Everyone involved with this man's torture, murder and coverup must be punished harshly. The dime was definitely a message. Now justice must reply.

    This is another good old boys cover up story like Kendrick Johnson's ... The cellphone in the shoe of Alfred Wright is a common thing for people to do when they frequent gyms, workout clubs or skating rinks.. It is common for people to put their keys etc in one of their 'outside shoe wear' then put them inside their locker after they change to their 'inside gym shoes or skates' this way when they leave they know where their car keys, cells etc are.. Men especially do that because they don't carry pocketbooks like women do.. So is this another 'gym death' story ? As far as the missing tongue & ear that is an old Mafia warning sign "hear no evil speak no evil"; so did Alfred hear or see something & perhaps said something about that ? Did Alfred find out something about the sheriff's daughter re; drugs or perhaps taking something from that clinic she worked at ? #JustGuessing

      Maybe it's a sign that he had been dead for two weeks in the forest. Animals and insects did their damage, perhaps.
