The cities of Calabasas and Agoura Hills, working with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, announced Tuesday they are jointly offering a $15,000 reward for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for the death of Mitrice Richardson.
Richardson was last seen alive being released with no purse or cellphone from the around 1 a.m. on Sept. 17, 2009. She was arrested earlier that evening for failing to pay an $89 bill at Geoffrey's in Malibu.
Her skeletal nearly a year later on Aug. 9, 2010 in the Monte Nido area of Calabasas.
“Although years have passed since Ms. Richardson disappeared, we are hoping this reward will help trigger the public’s memory about that late September night and early morning hours," said Calabasas Mayor Mary Sue Maurer in a news release. "Perhaps someone saw her walking along the road or getting into a car. No detail is too small and should be reported to law enforcement working on the case."
The city of Malibu and the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors are also offering rewards.
