Police say a New York City jazz musician who hadn't been seen since last week has been found dead inside a storage chest in his home.
Stanley Wright was reported missing by his son early Tuesday. Police checked his Brooklyn home around 3:30 a.m. and found his body. He was last seen alive Thursday.
Relatives tell the Daily News the 62-year-old Wright once taught music at a Brooklyn middle school and played at Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts. Wright played the bass, piano and drums and gave lessons.
Relatives say Wright was a widower and lived alone with two cats. He was the father of three, including actress N'Bushe Wright, who co-starred in the 1998 Wesley Snipes action movie "Blade."
The medical examiner's office will determine the cause of his death.
