We have lost another member of our extended European-American family to black violence.
The case against a black man in the death of Tricia McCauley is still developing, but from where any reasonable person sits, the case against him looks strong.
A yoga instructor and actress who vanished on Christmas Day in Washington DC has been found dead, her brother has announced.
Tricia McCauley, 46, never showed up for a friend’s Christmas dinner in the Northwest section of the capital on Sunday.
She also missed a flight out of Ronald Reagan National Airport the next morning.
‘Tricia is gone,’ her brother Brian McCauley told the DailyMail.com. ‘No more details from the police at the moment, just that they found her body.’
Police identified a man on Monday who appears to have been driving her missing car. A person of interest who matched the man’s description and picture was later taken into custody and was being interrogated into the early hours of Tuesday. He has not been named a suspect.
McCauley’s missing car was found shortly after midnight Tuesday morning near 22nd and M streets, ABC 7 reported.
‘Police have been inside her apt., all seems fine there,’ McCauley’s brother, Brian, wrote on a Facebook group that at the time was dedicated to gathering information on her disappearance.
‘They have photos to put out bulletins online. Friends have traced her route to the [Christmas dinner]. Police have gained access to her credit/debit card and found activity today, but no other details.’
The Facebook group was switched to private after McCauley’s body was found.
The unidentified black who was driving Tricia’s car is being interrogated by police. Her body was found in the car. I would judge the odds that he’s her killer at 100 percent.
There’s still much to learn, such as the cause of death, whether Tricia was sexually assaulted and/or tortured, etc.
The problem with living in any big city like Washington, D.C., is that one cannot avoid contact with seedy characters who live life by preying on others.
The individual being questioned may be an American black or an immigrant. He has a vaguely Carribean look to me. Perhaps he’s from the Dominican Republic or Puerto Rico.
Whatever, he represents the dangers of die-versity.
RIP, Tricia. Your killer will face justice of a sort, even if it’s imperfect.
Update: The Washington Post reports that police have scheduled a press conference this morning, which should reveal more details about this unnecessary tragedy.
