Remains Found in Santa Monica Mountains ID'd as Mitrice Richardson
Richardson went missing nearly a year ago after an arrest in Malibu, stemming from sheriff's deputies arriving when she didn't pay her $89 bill at a restaurant. They subsequently found a small about of marijuana in her car and booked her. She was released early the next morning with no car or cell phone. Save for a few apparent sightings of her alongside mountain roads, she was never seen again.
Her parents said she shouldn't have been released citing her reported bizarre behavior at the restaurant — claiming she was from Mars and speaking her own language. Sheriff's officials say she seemed fine when she left the station.
