The case of Mitrice Richardson, the young woman who left a Lost Hills/Malibu sheriff’s station, after being arrested for leaving a restaurant in the area without paying, and was never seen again opens up the show’s fifth season. This was a strange case from the beginning…why the sheriff would let her leave at 12:30 a.m. alone in the dark, without her purse or cell phone when her car was still in the impound lot was always fraught with questions. While her remains were eventually found in Malibu Canyon a year after her release, this bizarre case brings up many of the limitations of the legal system. Should she even have been arrested at all is one of the major issues and literally every detail of the handling of the case has come into question and her parents sued the Los Angeles Sheriffs Department and won a settlement. Hope the hour-long segment does the case justice.
