Information on the case from local sources, may or may not be correct : Wright was last seen in the 6400 block of Washtenaw, between Talman Avenue and Rockwell Avenue, in the Marquette Park neighborhood of Chicago, Illinois at 1:45 p.m. on December 18, 2016. She was abducted by three to four unidentified men. Wright screamed for help and tried to fight the men off, but the men forced into a newer model blue Mazda with Ohio license plates and drove away.
Curiously, Wright's friend Marlo "Chris" Gulley, who disappeared less than a year after she did, was last seen near the same place Wright disappeared from. A 20-year-old woman Shante Bohanan, also disappeared from the neighborhood in July 2016 and was found murdered. Her homicide, and Gulley's disappearance, are unsolved, and it's unclear whether any of the cases are connected.
Wright worked as a hairstylist at the time of her disappearance, and was active in the local LGBT community. She had grown up in Marquette Park and was well-known and well-liked in the area. Her case remains unsolved.
