The family of Alfred Wright was in Houston Friday expressing their displeasure with the Department of Justice's announcement.

His family said they believe Shane Hadnot is being used as a scapegoat and he is not to blame for Wright's death. The believe the Sabine County Sheriff's Office is the issue and they still blame them.

"My biggest fear is leaving these culprits in office," said Wright's mother, Rosalind Wright. "And being afraid that my grandsons -- my son left three seeds -- I'm afraid for my grandsons. I'm afraid this may happen to them."

Wright went missing on Nov. 7, 2013. On that day, he pulled into the CL&M grocery store along State Highway 87 in Hemphill. When his truck broke down, he made a call to his wife at 6:05 p.m.

Family members and friends found Wright's body in a wooded area of Sabine County on Nov. 25. Despite the fact that authorities mounted ground and air searches for Wright, his body was found about approximately 25 yards from where he disappeared.
