Missing Actress Discovered Dead - Police Immediately Arrest Person She Was With Last

Tricia McCauley, 46, set off for Christmas Day dinner in Washington DC. Her car was found just after midnight on Tuesday with her body inside. Cause of death has not yet been determined but police do have a suspect.

McCauley was due to arrive at a friend's house for dinner on Christmas Sunday but she never arrived. The following morning, she missed a flight. She had last been seen approximately 4:30 pm on Christmas day in her white Scion IQ.

Detectives searched the actress and yoga teacher's apartment but found no clues. On Monday, a day after she had been reported missing, an unknown person was seen driving McCauley's Scion. The man is also a suspect in a CVS robbery earlier on Monday in which he assaulted an employee.

The car was found parked in front of another CVS that night with McCauley's dead body inside. Police do not believe McCauley was acquainted with the suspect. The suspect is now in police custody.

Brian McCauley, the victim's brother, tweeted, "Tricia is gone, they have found her body. Thank you all for your work, support and love. To all of her DC family, I know she truly thought of you that way, thank you for being there for her all these years. Hang on to each other."

McCauley appeared in the short films 'Paper Girl' in 2000 and 'Never Dream: The Beginning' in 2012. She was a stand-in for Jenna Dewan in 'Step Up' and belonged to a DC-based theater company as well.
