Identity of Ta’Kiya Young’s mother is unknown, however, we learnt that she died in 2022.
Ta’Kiya Young’s father’s name is Timothy Young.

“They told me I can’t see her body at the morgue,” he said. “I’m her dad and I care.”
He said police could have shot her tires out. “There’s no excuse for this s—,” he said.
Ta’Kiya Young was raised by her grandmother, Nadine Young
Young was raised by her grandmother for most of her life, the elder Young said, and was living with her.
Nadine Young described her granddaughter as “goofy” and “fun-loving,” as well as someone who enjoyed playing pranks on others.
However, the relationship between the Youngs was at times more complex.
According to Franklin County Municipal Court records, Nadine Young called police on Sunday to her home on Divot Place after Ta’Kiya had shown up there.
The court records said the elder Young told Columbus police officers that she had a protection order against her granddaughter, who was not supposed to be at the home.
Young had left before Columbus police arrived on the scene but a misdemeanor charge of violating a protection order was filed after Nadine Young filled out a witness statement, according to court records.
It was the second such charge Young had faced as an adult.
Young also had other minor criminal infractions on her record, according to court documents.
