Rootstock suckers on Meyer lemon tree? Where is the main trunk?

I'm attempting to revive this Meyer lemon tree I was recently given (you'll see previous pruning attempts in pictures below) and don't know where to start. I was told it was a tree, however the root system looks like there are three separate sections - what should I do? It's unclear which is the primary trunk of the tree, which aspects are rootstock suckers, and where to prune. Please help!
