FBI Declines to Take the Matrise Richardson Case!

I am angry and disappointed. Mitrese Richardson, a beautiful Afrikan American young Woman with a college degree, was arrested, taken into custody by Law Enforcement. She was released at two in the morning on foot, with no cellular phone, purse or id into a dark wooded area.

She’s dead. She was missing for almost a year. Her skeletal remains found in a ravine. Rumors and photos have surfaced on the internet suggesting that Matrise was a lesbian, that she was suffering from Bi-Polar Depression, or that she simply had run away.  As early as one week before her remains were found, there was a rumor that she'd been sited in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Could Matrise’s disappearance and death be a hate crime perpetuated by members of Law Enforcement? We certainly can not rule it out. It has not been properly investigated to this writer’s knowledge. The investigation is not neutral and unbiased. The Malibu/Los Hills division of the LA County Sheriff is an unofficial suspect. They were the last one’s to see her alive.

They have yet to give a satisfactory explination why Ms. Richardson was released at two in the morning on foot with no id or cellular phone. Was she bailed out? Was she given a citation? Why was she not allowed to use a sheriff's phone? When she was arrested the was a suspicion that Ms. Richardson may have been suffering a mental breakdown. It that is true then why was she not seen by a Doctor? Why was she not kept overnight for observation?  Why release a Young Woman into the night on foot into a wooded area?

Would you want your local Law Enforcement Agency to release your Daughter into the a wooded area on foot without an ID, Phone or purse?  Where was Ms. Richardson gonna catch a bus?  Where was she gonna call anyone to come and pick her up? What place would have been safer than a Law Enforcement office? 

Why isn't there any video of Ms. Richardson being brought inside the station or leaving it? Where is Ms. Richardson's car, phone, purse and Identification? 

Why hasn't the Mainstream media hounded Law Enforcement officials with this?  While some Mainstream media has picked up the story and continue to cover it, t
here has no been no intense investigative journalism as of yet.  Thankfully some media outlets such as KJLH 102.3 FM in Los Angeles, CA as well as Jasmine Cannuck have kept the fire burning for Ms. Richardson.

The Sherriff’s department removed her remains and cleaned the crime scene. Is it proper for a possible suspect in a case to investigate that case? It seems more than reasonable to question any conclusions made in this case because the crime scene has been compromised and the evidence tainted.

Sheriff Lee Baca held a News conference announcing that there is no evidence of foul play. That’s not necessarily a lie.

There may be no evidence of foul play especially if members of the sheriffs department removed it all and are obstructing the truth.

That’s just an observation. No one has been accused or charged with any wrongdoing. Sheriff Lee Baca should be held to account for making such a closed statement when a branch of his department is under a cloud of suspicion.

Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca
No evidence of foul play? What evidence do you have that would indicate that it was not? Did Matrise die of exposure, at the hands of an animal or from a fall? Was there anyway to conclude that she had not been assaulted physically or sexually at any time before her release? Sorry Sheriff Baca but we can not hold your department’s findings in the highest confidence. We can’t and we should not!

The Federal Bureau of Investigations has declined to become involved with the case.


If there was ever a case that demanded that they become involved this is it! The Local law enforcement agency is a suspect in the case. The FBI should be asking some real questions of all the parties involved. They should be interviewing every officer and person in the building that evening but most of all they should exhume her remains and conduct an autopsy. Recently, eight more bones were found that are believed to belong to Matrise.

"No Evidence of Foul Play?"

How did Matrise Richardson die?

The FBI should do this in the interest of justice. Please email your local representatives and enlist their help in seeing that Justice is done in this case. Demand that Matrise’s body be exhumed! Demand an independent autopsy and demand that everyone involved in this case be investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigations including shutting down the Los Hills/Malibu Branch and investigating all it's officers and records completely.

Please Write, Email, Fax, Facebook, Phone or Tweet the following in support of a complete independent investigation into the Arrest, Release, Search, and Death of Matrise Richardson by the State of California and uultimately the Federal Bureau of Investigations.
