Actress Misty Upham's Dad Says She Died Trying to Flee Police
Death not a suicide, dad says
Actress Misty Upham's father, Charles Upham announced on a statement in Facebook that he believes his daughter died while trying to hide from the police. "She did not commit suicide," Charles wrote. "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."
Upham had been missing since October 6 when her body was discovered on Thursday at the bottom of a 150-ft embankment in Auburn, Washington. The actress who had appeared in "August: Osage County" and "Django Unchained" was 32.
