Matt JohnsonMitrice Richardson 24, went missing on September 17, 2009, after being released from a jail in Calabasas, California, after not paying her $89 bill at Geoffrey's Malibu restaurant. She was released in the middle of the night with no phone, no car, no purse and not dressed for the elements.
After a massive missing persons search and countless false sightings of Mitrice her body was discovered 11 months later by park rangers who were allegedly in the area to inspect an illegal marijuana grow site in a remote area.
Sheriff's deputies removed her body before the possible crime scene could be processed by the Coroner. Now, as we approach the 10 year anniversary of her disappearance, there is still no official cause of death and her family believes she was murdered.... the big question: how did Mitrice end up in a remote area and how did she die?
This episode sheds new light on the case with new information and new interviews. Many of the interviews were conducted on what would have been her 34th birthday.
Mitrice Richardson was the daughter of Latice Sutton and Michael Richardson of Covina, California. She was an honors student and obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree in psychology in 2008 from California State University, Fullerton. At the time of her disappearance Mitrice was in a relationship with a woman, she was completing her internship and applying for graduate programs to complete her schooling to become a Psychologist.
To help pay for college Mitrice worked as a model for various beauty pageants and events including the Playboy Mansion's Hot Summer Nights Party.
Mitrice's family is pushing for this case to help in prison and jail reform in California.
