YORK, Va. (WWBT) - A 25-year-old Richmond woman was found shot to death in York County early Saturday morning.
A runner found the body around 6:30 a.m. in the area between Riverwalk Townhouses and the Colonial Parkway entrance of Old Williamsburg Road.
The York-Poquoson Sheriff’s Office identified the woman Sunday as Tyosha Tanique Mitchell. Investigators believe Mitchell was forcibly taken from Richmond and then left on the side of Old Williamsburg Road.
The sheriff’s office says the suspected vehicle appears to be a dark-colored Hyundai Sonata between the years of 2012 and 2016.
