HENRICO COUNTY, Va. -- The body of Tajah Dye, a missing Henrico woman who was last seen at a Chesterfield restaurant last month, was discovered Wednesday in a parked car, Dye's father told Crime Insider Jon Burkett.

Richmond Police later confirmed the discovery.

"At approximately 8:04 p.m., officers were called to the 2500 block of Glenlea Avenue for the report of a person down in a vehicle," an email from a Richmond Police spokesperson read. "Officers arrived and found Dye unresponsive in a vehicle that was parked on the street. Dye was pronounced dead at the scene."

The Medical Examiner will determine the cause and manner of death.

Dye's father Lawrence Robinson said he was alerted to the discovery Wednesday evening.

"They said that the police was out there with yellow tape and a car that looks like my daughter's car," Robinson said. "I hurried over there."
