The body of Mitrice Richardson, whose remains were found in a remote area of Malibu Canyon after she went missing for several months, was exhumed Wednesday, according to officials.

Richardson, 24, went missing in September of 2009 after being released from the sheriff’s Lost Hills/Malibu station. She left around midnight without a car, purse or cell phone. Richardson’s body was later found naked in a Malibu Canyon ravine in early August.
