JASPER, Texas - While many families gathered across East Texas to celebrate Christmas, Jasper residents gathered to remember their friend and loved one they called Alfie.
 
Alfred Wright went missing on Nov. 7, in Sabine County. The Jasper man had been missing for nearly three weeks before he was found on Nov. 25. 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  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.
 
Activist Quanell X was supposed to be in attendance at the rally but family members say they asked him not to come because they feared they may lose support of some if he came. Wright's father, Douglas said that Quanell told him he would respect the family's wishes at this time.
 
Douglas Wright took to the podium and claimed that there was a cover up by the Sabine County Sheriff's Office.
 
"I can hear him saying, you can kill me, but I will not die," Douglas Wright said.
 
As those in attendance sang through the night, there was only one Christmas wish on their mind.
 
"All we want for Christmas is justice for Alfie," Douglas Wright said.
 
Sabine County Sheriff Tom Maddox would not comment on the comments made by the Wright family. Maddox said the case has been officially handed over to the Texas Rangers and that any comment would have to come from them.
