Mitrice richardsonAn independent report examining the handling of Mitrice Richardson's remains by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department is expected to be released Wednesday.

The county's Office of Independent Review is scheduled to release its report at noon.

The 24-year-old Richardson went missing in 2009 after being released from the sheriff's Malibu/Lost Hills station around midnight without a car, phone or money.

Her body was found almost a year later in a Malibu Canyon ravine.  

Sheriff’s and coroner’s officials agreed to launch an inquiry into the handling of her remains in November 2010 after the coroner's office said they were moved from the ravine without its permission.
