There are serious questions surrounding the death of Alfred Wright. He disappeared last November. It took searchers three weeks to locate his remains, even though they were found just up the road from where he vanished. Authorities say he died of a self-inflicted drug overdose. Wright's family says he did not do drugs, and according to the autopsy his throat was cut and his ear was missing. This happened in an area of Texas with a history of racial tension, where one of America's most horrific hate crimes occurred. Deborah Feyerick reports.
