    Mitrice Richardson's Mother, Latice Sutton Speaks out.... Part I


    Honest and open, Latice answers some of the questions about her daughters state of being and her concern over the way things were handled. I asked about signs of stress before the arrest was made,"There were subtle changes. She wasn't as concerned with her physical upkeep, she was texting strange things to friends, very subtle differences that only when looking back you could see the beginning of   a problem." Latice said.

    It was evident the night of her arrest that thing had  escalated. At Geoffrey's in Malibu she sat with a group of people she did  not know. She spoke about being from Mars and incoherent ramble.

    "My daughter was clearly in crisis. Mitrice's behavior was out of  
    character and alarming" Latice states.

    With proper evaluation, Mitrice would not be missing today. This could have been avoided .Latice and family have had to take the search efforts in their own hands, doing whatever they can to bring their daughter home.
    Latice's family gathered around the meeting place for those going to the homes in the Monte Nida area. The meeting place was the Lost Hills Sheriffs dept. where to my surprise there would not be any law enforcement accompanying us on our search.
