    A member of Congress has asked the Department of Justice to investigate the circumstances surrounding last year’s disappearance of a California woman.

    Rep. Maxine Waters, a democrat from California, said in a letter she is “deeply concerned” about the decision by the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department to release Mitrice Richardson from custody following her arrest on September 16, 2009.

    A member of Congress has asked the Department of Justice to investigate the circumstances surrounding last year’s disappearance of a California woman.

    Rep. Maxine Waters, a democrat from California, said in a letter she is “deeply concerned” about the decision by the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department to release Mitrice Richardson from custody following her arrest on September 16, 2009.

    Richardson was accused of not paying for her $89 dinner at a Malibu restaurant. Sheriff’s deputies charged Richardson with defrauding an innkeeper and for possessing a small amount of marijuana.

    At the restaurant, witnesses said Richardson was exhibiting strange behavior. Her family said the college graduate suffers from mental health issues.


    Richardson was booked at the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department’s Malibu/Lost Hills station and discharged at approximately 1am on the morning of September 17, authorities said.

    She walked out of the station and was never seen or heard from again.

    In her letter to the Department of Justice, Rep. Waters wrote that she is “troubled by reports that question whether the Malibu/Lost Hills Sheriff’s station acted properly in releasing Mitrice Richardson during the predawn hours without money or transportation.”

    “All while she was suffering from what the Los Angeles Police Department’s doctors have concluded to be bipolar disorder,” Rep. Waters said.

    Richardson's family has long suspected that the sheriff’s department may have been involved in her disappearance.

    In response, the sheriff’s department told CNN it welcomed Rep. Waters’ request for a federal investigation.

    it would not surprise me if the police had their hand in this...if anything the proper protocol would have been to detain her until morning....especially since she had weed on her....

    She Still Missing?

    Wow this sister is still missing? I remember seeing this about TWO times, whereas all the little blond haired devils get 24/7 coverage, and they usually have everybody under the sun looking for her, yet this sister has barely even caused a stir....smh

    I will keep this young sis in prayer. Thanks for the update brother!
