The case of Tyliah Young, the 22-year-old woman whose frozen body was found last week in a Tacoma alley, will be featured tonight on the TV show “Washington’s Most Wanted.”

Police are asking anyone who saw or had contact with Young from Jan. 5 to Jan. 13 to call detectives.

“We’re trying to piece together the last week of her life,” department spokeswoman Loretta Cool said.

Young’s body was discovered Jan. 13 in an alley in the 1200 block of South Ainsworth Avenue. She had been shot multiple times in the head.

She was last seen the morning of Jan. 9 when she briefly came home. Her father reported her missing two days later.

The TV show airs on channel 13. It will also be featured on Saturday’s show.
