VIDEO: Mitrice Richardson Story on Investigation Discovery Television

The mysterious circumstances behind the disappearance and death of the 24-year-old college graduate are explored on an episode of 'Disappeared.'

The mysterious disappearance and ultimate discovery of the remains of Mitrice Richardson, 24, is the subject of an episode of Disappearance, entitled "Lost in the Dark" on ID Television.

Richardson was last seen alive being released with no purse or cellphone from the Malibu/Lost Hills Sheriff's Station 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 remains were found nearly a year later on Aug. 9, 2010 in the Monte Nido area of Calabasas.

The cities of Agoura Hills and Calabasas, working with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, are jointly offering a $15,000 reward for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for Richardson's death.

I hope the Malibu Surfside News gets its due credit in that TV show. That newspaper kept the issue alive and in the forefront for months before anyone paid attention to it.

@Hans Laetz, the MSN deserves all of the credit for keeping the story alive. Without the work of Anne Soble much of what is known about what happened to Mitrice would have never been uncovered. The work and dedication of Anne Soble of MSN has been invaluable and it is because of her and her work that Mitrice's story got the continued national attention that it did.

She didn't just, "get lost" where she was found was not near any trails. We will never know tho because LACSD doesn't want the outcome they have accepted to change. No female would bushwhacked to that location. It's an absurd story.

The last time anyone saw Mitrice alive was at the Lost Hills Sheriffs station. There is an interesting article here about three officers, "higher-ups" at the station, all of whom have been relieved of duty in relation to accusations of "sexual coercion" by a female deputy.

What an absurd, irresponsible comment.
