'Misty Fell to Her Death While Running Away From Police': Family of Django Unchained Actress Claim Auburn Officers 'Teased and Taunted' Star Before She Went Missing and Then Refused to Search for Her
  • Bombshell statement by relatives was posted on Facebook
  • Says she had recently been placed in an 'involuntary transport' to ER by officers who 'tapped on the window of patrol car' as she cried
  • Added to claims she was afraid of police 'for a good reason'
  • As she fled her apartment they say she simply 'did not see drop'
  • The 32-year-old was found dead in Seattle woodland by her uncle
  • He was forced to set up his own search party because police 'didn't help'
Daily Mail UK, 18 October 2014




A statement posted on Facebook by her father Charles last night (top right) suggests the 32-year-old fled her apartment when officers from Auburn Police arrived and she plummeted to her death down the steep embankment (being searched by rescuers left) while trying to get out of view from the road. They also said the August: Osage County star, who had well documented her mental health problems (pictured bottom right with Meryl Streep), had previously been 'taunted and teased' by law enforcement when they picked her up and placed her in an 'involuntary transport to ER' while handcuffed.


The family accused officers of 'tapping on the window making faces at her' while Misty was crying. Part of the lengthy social media post read: 'Misty was afraid of the Auburn PD officers with good reason. Earlier on Friday, as relatives gathered to grieve the 32-year-old's death, they said Misty's uncle, Robert Upham, was forced to set up his own search party because police 'did not help' the investigation. It follows claims from her friends and co-stars that she could have been the victim of 'foul play' and may have been targeted because she was 'outspoken'.


The family of Misty Upham have made bombshell claims that the Django Unchained actress died after slipping and falling down an embankment while running away from police.

In a statement posted on Facebook, relatives say she fled her apartment when officers from Auburn Police arrived.
She then plummeted to her death while trying to get out of view from the road.
Prior to this incident they allege that she was 'taunted and teased' by law enforcement officials picked when picked her up from her apartment and placed her in an 'involuntary transport to ER' while handcuffed.

Before she went missing she is believed to have struggled with bipolar disorder and had stopped taking anxiety medication.
Part of the lengthy social media post read: 'Misty was afraid of the Auburn PD officers with good reason. In an incident prior to her disappearance, the Auburn PD came to pick up Misty on an involuntary transport to the ER.

'She was cuffed and placed in a police car. Some of the officers began to taunt and tease her while she was in the car.





Tragedy: The dead body of Misty Upham, 32, who was missing since October 5, was found on Thursday





Her family claim that she tripped and fell down a hidden embankment while hiding from police. She was missing for 12 days until her body was found




Frustration: Her family (Charles her father pictured left) claim they had to set up their own search party because the police 'did not help the investigation'





Despair: Her father posted on Facebook saying that law enforcement was not looking for his daughter


'Because it was dark they couldn't see that we, her family, were outside our apartment just across the street witnessing this behavior.

'They were tapping on the window making faces at her. Misty was crying and she told them you can't treat me like this I'm a movie actress and I will use my connections to expose you.
'Then another officer walked up to her asked 'are you a movie star?, then why don't complain to George Clooney!'


Police officers have stated that they responded to a number of suicide calls from the same address on the day she went missing.

Earlier on Friday, as relatives gathered to grieve the 32-year-old's death, they said Misty's uncle, Robert Upham, was forced to set up his own search party because police 'did not help' the investigation.
It follows claims from her August: Osage County co-star Juliette Lewis that the 32-year-old Native American told her she 'feared she was being targeted' while others believe her death was as a result of 'foul play'.


A spokesman for the family released a statement on Friday evening saying:

'The family wants to make it clear the Auburn police did not help in the investigation or the finding of Misty at all. It was her uncle, Robert Upham, who organized the search party that found Misty.
'The family is concerned that if the police had actually taken their concerns seriously within those first few hours of the report that perhaps she would have been found.'

'We are now just waiting on the coroner's report.'

'MISTY WAS AFRAID OF AUBURN PD OFFICERS WITH GOOD REASON': FAMILY'S ASTONISHING ALLEGATIONS IN FULL

We would like to provide the following information to all of Misty's friends and family. We believe that Misty's death was accidental. She did not commit suicide.
We believe she ran into the wooded area behind her apartment to hide from the police.


The area in question has a hidden drop off and evidence suggests that she slipped and fell off of the steep embankment when she tried to get out of a view from the road.
She simply did not see the drop off. We searched near that area that evening she disappeared and missed seeing her purse by 25 feet.
I , Charles, went there after Fire Department officials recovered her body and you just can't see the steep drop until it's too late.





Afraid: Misty's family have described how officers began to 'taunt and tease' her when they had cuffed her and placed her in the back of a patrol car



Misty was afraid of the Auburn PD officers with good reason. In an incident prior to her disappearance, the Auburn PD came to pick up Misty on an involuntary transport to the ER.

She was cuffed and placed in a police car. Some of the officers began to taunt and tease her while she was in the car
.
Because it was dark they couldn't see that we, her family, were outside our apartment just across the street witnessing this behavior.


They were tapping on the window making faces at her. Misty was crying and she told them you can't treat me like this I'm a movie actress and I will use my connections to expose you.

Then another officer walked up to her asked 'are you a movie star?, then why don't complain to George Clooney!'


After Misty arrived at the ER we went to see her and she has a swollen jaw, black eye and scratches and bruises on her shoulder.
I asked the ER staff what happened and they said Misty was brought in like that. Misty said she couldn't remember what happened but thatís why she feared the police.
I asked Misty to call the Auburn PD and ask to speak to the commander. When she was connected to, whom we believe was Commander Stocker she made a verbal complaint.
The official asked her 'what are you going to do about it?' She replied I'm doing it, I'm telling you so you do something about it.'


The APD official told her unless she wanted to file a formal complaint the matter would not be pursued.
The day the APD was called to do another Involuntary transport Misty left the apartment where she was staying.




Retrieval: A picture released by the City of Auburn shows rescuers attempting to get down to the body


When we tried to follow her Auburn PD officers told us they wanted to check for inside. We told them that Misty may have walked around the side of the apartment but they made us to go back inside.
They asked if we were hiding her and took time to search the apartment and get a description of what she was wearing.

By the time they finished Misty was gone. We believe that if we were not otherwise occupied we may have found Misty before she got hurt.


It is a tragic that Misty slipped and fell to her death trying avoid the police.

It's tragic that she did not get the proper medication to treat her mental illness from her mental health care givers at Valley Cities Mental Health

It is tragic that the Auburn PD refused to help offer to find or at least change her Missing status to 'Endangered' to allow other agencies to get involved.


But the real tragedy is this could have been prevented on a lot of levels.
We pleaded with the Auburn Police to help us find Misty but Commander Stocker made the decision that Misty did not fit the criteria of the Washington State Endangered Missing Persons Plan. This became a point of contention between us and the Auburn PD.

In a statement he gave to the press he said Auburn PD doesn't have any evidence that Misty is actually missing. He went to say that Misty packed her belongings and left her apartment. This was an inaccurate statement.
We believe that Commander Stocker had animosity against Misty due to a previous encounter. Why else would he refuse to allow common sense to prevail?

Imagine a 32 year old woman with mental illness, without her medication, imagine she left in an unstable mental state, imagine for the first time in 32 years she lost contact with everyone for 11 days.

Now imagine she is Commander Stocker's daughter. Do you think this case would have been handled differently? Misty loved life, she had ambition, vision and a desire to make a difference in the world she lived in.
She tried to use her celebrity status to influence positive change and she became a living example of that endeavor.

Now press reports are saying that Auburn police department found Misty.

The truth is the Native American community formed a search party and found her after several days of searching without the help of the Auburn PD.


We would like to thank the Muckleshoot Tribe and other Tribal volunteers for all their support in our time of desperation.
We would like thank all the wonderful supporters who could not be here but offered kind words and prayers.
Asked if family and friends could trust the coroner's report, she responded: 'The family has concerns. We are waiting to hear what is stated in the coroner's report but there is a long history of police harassment between the Auburn police and the native community.
'There's a lot of distrust. And that's founded in the historical trauma experienced by the native community at the hands of the police.

'And you know, Misty has also experienced harassment at the hands of police so you know, the family is concerned about the circumstances surrounding what happened and why police chose not look for Misty.'





Tribute: Juliette Lewis posted a picture on Instagram with Misty saying she fought for the voiceless fiercely





Calling for action: She warned Misty feared 'she could be murdered' and had suffered horrible violence






'The family stated they do not feel she committed suicide. The family has stated that her death is most likely an accident.
'And they've also stated that they feel as if their concerns weren't listed to, and when they pleaded for help this perhaps could have been prevented and her body could have been found in time after she fell.'

Others close to the family of the Native American have said she could have been a victim of 'foul play'.
A source, who would only call himself Harry, told Mail Online he believes the police in Auburn, Washington are 'derelict' in their duty after she went missing for 12 days.

'She had her purse with her and because she had her purse and phone the police thought she left of her own will,' he said. 'Her uncle found her, not police, and her purse was near the cliff where she fell to her death.'

He added the family was certain she fell or else was the subject of 'foul play'.
A spokesman for the Muckleshoot reservation did not immediately comment on Misty's death or allegations city police did not do enough to look for her.
Upham, 32, a Native American actress praised for her roles in movies including August: Osage County, Frozen River and Django Unchained, was missing for 12 days before her body was found at the bottom of a wooded embankment in Auburn, Washington.














Friends: The pair starred together in August: Osage County last year and remained firm friends afterwards



Officers have declared there is 'no evidence of foul play' as they continue to investigate the death.
But today Juliette Lewis took to Twitter blasting the task force's announcement, warning: 'police must do an investigation'.
She tweeted about her August: Osage County co-star:


Quote:
'RIPMistyUpham I am in shock and greif [sic]. I pray the police do a murder investigation. They're saying not 'foul play' when of course it is.
'Misty spoke out alot against injustices within Native community. And had known enemies. Police must do an investigation.'
She then retweeted a series of Upham's own tweets, including a warning for people to 'walk on egg shells' because she had 'just been followed by Indian Trader'.
Later, Lewis added:


Quote:
'I cant sleep. Too much darkness. I feel so sad about Misty. I know she has more to say. And about how she died.
'Misty told me about horrible violence she suffered on NA reservations She felt she coul be murdered! Bcuz she was vocal #ThisIsNOTaSUICIDE '.


Accolade: They are pictured sharing a moment here after receiving the Ensemble Cast Award for the movie



Upham's family has also blasted claims of a suicide, claiming she fell to her death.

Close relatives of the 32-year-old star said she was in 'a reflective mood' when she went to the scenic wooded embankment where her body was found and fell off a cliff. Her shoes and purse were found at the top of the cliff.
They insist she had been talking about moving back to LA.

Upham had recently returned to the Seattle-area to help care for her father, Charles Upham, who suffered a stroke last year.

This is another great reminder to call and check on someone when you think to. Not when its too late.
Juliette Lewis posted on Instagram
Last night, it was Mr Upham who had to identify the lifeless body of his own daughter.
Shortly after her disappearance, Upham said that his daughter was upset and erratic and had stopped taking medication for anxiety and bipolar disorder.
Auburn police had responded to a suicide call at Misty Upham's residence in the days before she was last seen, authorities said.
Her father previously said he did not believe she was suicidal.


Lewis reiterated his sentiment by posting a picture of herself and Misty on Instagram with the caption:


Quote:
'Misty Upham survived many things that many don't early on in life. She fought for the voiceless fiercely [sic].
'She understood suffering and the deepest pain. She had a presence everyone saw and felt. It is this presence that will continue.
'Out of the dark space in which her light got dimmed. I will remember her as tuff [sic]. Wise. Funny. Spiritual. And hopeful.
'This is another great reminder to call and check on someone when you think to. Not when its too late. RIPMistyUpham'
It took just over five hours to identify the body.
The Hollywood Reporter spoke with Seattle-based filmmaker Tracy Rector who said that Misty Upham's uncle, Robert Upham, organized a search party to look for the missing actress three days ago.


Misty Upham looks stunning at August: Osage County premiere:







Missing: Upham's parents had been canvassing their town and hanging 'missing' posters for 12 days



'We waited at the site where the team found the body,' Rector said
'It took about five-and-a-half hours to confirm. Then we gathered around her body to say prayers and now we're all gathered at the church.'

Mr Upham told the MailOnline late Wednesday that he was frantic to find his daughter and felt that media attention had focused on her glamorous days on the red carpet and not her as a 'normal person.'

He said the actress, a member of the Blackfoot tribe, had cut off her long locks before she went missing.

He denied his daughter would ever go through with a suicide.

He told KIRO-FM that Misty was in a 'psychotic' state when she left her house with only the clothes on her back and without her medication.
'It wasn't like she just decided to take time off,' he said.
He added: 'She has said suicidal things in the past but never followed through,' he said.
'She doesn't believe in killing herself. She believes that is a sin and she would never do that.

Mona Upham, Misty's mother, accused the Seattle area police of not doing enough to find her daughter.
She attributed it to her Native-American background. 'I think if Misty was different-looking they would have done a lot more to help find her,' she said.


This was not the first time Upham has reportedly left her home without notice, and it is also not the first time police have responded to suicide calls at her residence.

People magazine reported that in the last year, police have responded to Upham's apartment four times following suicide calls.

Upham may have been under a lot of stress from Police prior to her death.





Movies: Upham recently played a house keeper in 'August: Osage County' which starred Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts. But she had won an award for her role in the 2008 independent film 'Frozen River'


A source reportedly told People that Upham was struggling financially and sometimes had trouble paying her rent.
Police received a suicide call on October 5, but when officers arrived, she was no longer at her father's house.

A day later, her father went to the police asking that his daughter be listed as a 'missing and endangered person.'
The police did not comply, saying that Upham's case did not meet the criteria because her disappearance was not 'unexplainable, involuntary or suspicious'

Therefore, the Upham family took to Facebook and local media to alert the public about their missing daughter and to enlist the public's help in finding her.
In a Facebook post on Upham's page, the family stated: 'We have been consumed by chasing down leads and doing ground searches in the area she was last seen. It is only her family searching right now, hanging posters, checking with shelters, hospitals, and asking people in the area if she has been seen.

Upham is best known for her role in the 2008 independent film 'Frozen River,' for which she received an Independent Spirit Award nomination. She recently played a house keeper in 'August: Osage County.' Her next onscreen role will be in 'Cake' with Jennifer Aniston and Anna Kendrick.
END

Misty Upham:





NB: Sadly all Native Americans, African Americans and Latinos are unjustly treated by Police and Authorites in America.....


RIP Misty...
