Speaker 1 (00:00):
On September two thousand, nine year old my Trees Richardson
disappeared without a trace in the woods near Malibu, California.
She had been arrested at a beachside restaurant for failing
to pay a tab and taken too the Lost Hills
Sheriff station. You know, I mean, she's not from that area,
and I would hate to wake up to a morning
report somewhere with her head chopped out. At least in

the station here to will be separated, so nobody's going
to be with her, certainly, you know the bus stances,
you don't have to worry about her safety. This is
the same sheriff station where Mel Gibson was taken to
sober up after his drunken rant and then safely driven
back to his car. There was no courtesy ride from

My Trees, the young African American non celebrity. They knew
that she had been released with no car, no money,
no cell phone, nothing, and in the dead of night.
Her mom calls the next morning to tell them that
she never came home, and it's like, oh, well, she
probably just you know, they were just very nonchalant and
casual about it. She doesn't know the area. She's never

been in your area. Well, I think she's suppressed. That's
what happened. That more than just her Okay, the police
released her just after midnight, and there was nothing right.
They had my treats victimized from the moment. They knew
that she was not in the right state of mind
she needed to be in, but she needed help. She

should I went to a hospital. My Trees disappeared into
the darkness and was never seen alive again. If they
would put her clothing in the body bag to be buried,
you know that they're trying to high So I'm like,
if we tell them, we don't know what they're gonna do.
