In 2009, recent college graduate Mitrice Richardson was arrested for not paying her $89 tab at a restaurant. She was released from the police station alone at midnight without her phone, car or wallet. She was never seen alive again.
Mitrice Richardson was released from the Lost Hills Sheriff Station in California hours after deputies assured her mother, Lattice, that they would hold her overnight and that she would be safe there. Eleven months later, her body was found in Dark Canyon, 6.5 miles from the police station she was released from. Her killer has not been caught.Show Notes:Unsolved LA: Mitrice RichardsonLie & Deny: Secrecy & Suspicion Surround LA County SheriffABC 7 Documentary: ‘Unsolved LA’Office of Independent Review ReportL.A.

Malibu, California. September 16, 2009. Mitrice Richardson had not been herself for a while. One day in mid-September, 24-year-old Mitrice was arrested for being unable to pay her bill at an exclusive Malibu restaurant. She was taken to the Malibu/Lost Hills Sheriff's Station. Her mother, Latice, was assured by a sheriff's deputy that she would be kept in custody over night. But this was not to be; Mitrice ended up being released in the middle of the night with no purse, phone, or any personal belongings. No one truly knows what happened to Mitrice that night.Eleven months later, her partially-mummified remains were discovered at the bottom of a canyon. Mitrice's devastated family and friends were desperate for answers. The LA County Sheriff's Department, on the other hand, had no interest in finding out what happened. Time and time again, they failed Mitrice's family. To this day, her cause of death remains unknown.Instagram: @talkmurderwithmeFacebook: @talkmurrderwithmeSources:Latice’s book on Mitrice (Amazon link)LA Magazine article by Mike Kessler: What Happened To Mitrice Richardson?Malibu-area search fails to find missing woman, 24Long search for Mitrice Richardson comes to tragic endSix Years Later Mitrice Richardson’s Death Still An Unsolved MysteryMissing woman’s mother sues Los Angeles County and Sheriff’s DepartmentFriends and relatives remember Mitrice RichardsonLie and Deny: Secrecy and Suspicion Surround the Los Angeles County Sheriff's DepartmentHopes for a new investigation into Mitrice Richardson case end in disappointmentAgain, no sign of Mitrice RichardsonCoroner's official criticizes Sheriff's Department for moving Mitrice Richardson's remainsAttorney general's probe finds no evidence of wrongdoing by deputies in death of Mitrice Richardson The California Attorney General's Office Finally Agrees to Look Into the Mitrice Richardson CaseCoroner's official criticizes Sheriff's Department for moving Mitrice Richardson's remainsMore bones found in ravine where Mitrice Richardson was discoveredTentative Settlement Approved in Mitrice Richardson CaseLos Angeles County authorities exhume woman's remainsMusic from Purple Planet MusicSupport this podcast at — https://redcircle.com/talk-murder-with-me/donationsAdvertising Inquiries: https://redcircle.com/brandsPrivacy & Opt-Out: https://redcircle.com/privacy
