Mitrice Richardson in VEGAS?
More about this tomorrow. From CNN:
A high-school classmate now living in Las Vegas reported seeing Richardson at the Rio Hotel and Casino in early June, sparking the new effort by detectives to check out his report.
“He walked up and said, ‘Hi, Mitrice,” Smith said. “She basically looked at him with kind of a shocked look and left the location.”
The casino’s security cameras didn’t have video of the incident that was of a high enough quality. But since then, investigators have talked to more than 70 people who say they have seen her, said William McSweeney, chief of the Los Angeles County detective division.
Those accounts were “based on a photograph and some passage of time, in most instances,” McSweeney said. “But that volume causes us to believe we’re on the right track.”
Her mom doesn’t believe the cops. She thinks that it is mighty funny, after she has filed suit against the Sheriff’s Department for negligence, that they should come up with this scenario.
And she questioned why police considered that report believable after dismissing an earlier report by Michael Richardson, the missing woman’s father, that he had spotted his daughter in Las Vegas.
What do I believe? I don’t think it’s Mitrice. I think that whoever is in Las Vegas is a ringer for the young woman. Hell, I would take off as well if some stranger confused me with a missing person. I feel strange when individuals confuse me with people that they know.
Mitrice’s story has been nagging at me lately; there is more connected with this case that I am going to have to bring you all up to date. Stay tuned.
