The state of Colorado has created an online database of about 1,700 homicides and missing persons for public viewing. There are over 330 missing person cases listed; unfortunately, precious few have photos. I hope more photos will be added soon and it won’t be like the Washington missing persons database, which several years after its creation still has photos in only about 1% of cases.
The bone found in Malibu, California earlier this week, not very far from where Mitrice Richardson was last seen, have been identified as hers. The cause of death hasn’t been determined — and probably won’t be, given the decomposition — but the cops are saying there’s no indication of foul play. It looks like Mitrice just wandered away and kept wandering until she died of exposure or thirst or snakebite or whatever.
This was a tragic end to a very promising life. I feel so sorry for Mitrice’s family. Articles:
