Willie Rydell Wright of 2401 Ilion Ave. N. is in custody in the Hennepin County Jail. JNS blog believes Wright is the second suspect in the homicide of Landon J. Peterson, click here for previous story.
Wright (DOB 6/10/84) was picked up on a felon in possession of a firearm charge but that charge expired after 36 hours. He's now sitting in jail on a Department of Corrections hold. Wright has a laundry list of...
...old charges and incidents, so many that his mugshot appears under searches of his name no less than SEVEN TIMES.
It is interesting that he's booked under Willie Rydell Wright because this guy changed his name in an application to the courts for change of name, which was granted. (See 82-CV-11-5700) His legal name is now Justus Rydell Wright.
Wright has been involved in a divorce and custody case. The woman named in the case is NOT Meranda Jean Erickson, the other person detained in this shooting according to information believed to be good and reliable by JNS blog, i.e., the only two people who live on that block who are on the jail roster with charges matching the description of the Ilion Ave. N. homicide.
Wright's rap sheet is, and I emphasize, extensive. HERE IT IS, and please keep in mind not all these old CHARGES represent actual CONVICTIONS.
Interestingly, there is another guy who is named Willie Rydell Wright. That guy was born in 1964 and has "Junior" after his name.
I haven't done a search, yet, under Wright's new name. I may do that later. Have to save some room for dessert.
Kind of like how I have to save his FACEBOOK for dessert.
Stay tuned, JNS blog readers. Stay tuned.
