Tricia McCauley was a luminous actress, a master herbalist, a gardener, a yogi. She also was a spiritual guide and a free therapist, usually over a glass of red wine.
On Tuesday, McCauley’s disparate D.C. communities were bound in grief over the violent murder of a woman known best for her serenity.
McCauley, 46, disappeared on her way to a Christmas dinner Sunday and was found beaten and strangled in her car early Tuesday morning.
“She was always seeking a kind of balance between her different energies and her different interests,” said Mosaic Theater Artistic Director Ari Roth, who directed McCauley at Theater J. “She radiated light and fierce determination.”
