A suspect who reportedly drove around with the body of an actress in her car was taken into custody in connection with her death.
People reports that Tricia McCauley was found dead a little more than a day after she disappeared on Christmas. Her body was reportedly found in her Toyota Scion near a CVS store early this morning.
The Huffington Post reports that McCauley’s body showed signs of trauma.
McCauley was an actress and yoga instructor who worked as a stand-in for Jenna Dewan Tatum in “Step Up.” She also starred in the short films “The Paper Girl” and “Never Dream: The Beginning.”
“Investigators said they located the 46-year-old Tricia’s missing Toyota Scion near 22nd and M streets in northwest D.C. shortly after midnight on Tuesday, after a tipster saw the vehicle and called police,” People reports. “The man who was driving the car with Tricia’s body inside was arrested, according to ABC 7.”
The suspect also robbed a CVS and assaulted the store’s employees around the time McCauley disappeared, The Huffington Post reports.
