RIP: N’Bushe Wright’s Father Found Murdered

The body of Brooklyn jazz musician Suleiman-Marim Wright was found stuffed in a storage trunk in his home today. Wright was 62 years old. He had been reported missing a week ago. The jazzman, who was born Stanley Wright, was the father of actress N’Bushe Wright, 40, who is best known for her roles in the movies Dead President and Blade.

Police found Wright’s body in his basement at 3:30am after his son, Khalil, called them to search the home on Chauncey St. in Brownsville.

He was stuffed into an old black trunk once used to store his mother’s clothes.

“This is crazy?” said his great-niece, Minnie Wright. “Who would do something like that to him? He was a musician. He was a great man.”

Wright was a widower, who lived alone with his two cats.

Police said a back window in the house was broken out. Relatives said Wright’s car, a grey Jeep, is missing, but that several valuable instruments were left in the home.

Wright’s daughter, N’Bushe, was flying to NY from the West Coast on Tuesday, her family said.

    Wow, what is the world coming to? Just when I think it can’t be any more violent or inhumane, I read something like this. My prayers go out to N’Bushe and the Wright family. May he rest in peace.
