xx COULD JUSTICE BE NEAR IN YOLANDA BINDICS CASE?
« Reply #60 on: Jun 10th, 2006, 10:18am »

The anticipation is growing in the southern tier as investigators narrow the focus in the Yolanda Bindics case.

Police say recent forensic test results have given the case a boost after months of status quo. Now even more evidence has been sent to the FBI crime lab in Virginia for comparison.


The developments are producing a flurry of activity in the Jamestown Police Department. Investigators brought in a task force again as more leads are emerging.

As of right now, no one has been charged in the disappearance of the mother of four. Police say any acquaintance can still be considered a person of interest.

Bindics was last seen leaving work in August 2004.
Officials say they predict the case will be solved sooner rather than later.

There are new developments in the case of a missing Jamestown mother of four. Police say recently there's been "a flurry of activity" in their investigation into what happened to Yolanda Bindics. In September of 2004 Jamestown Police found Bindics’ purse, car keys and other belongings after they washed up from a city storm drain. It had been one of the last visible periods of major activity in the case... until now. They sent those items and others to an FBI lab in Quantico, Virginia for forensic testing. Those results recently (finally, almost 2 years later, thanks to a back log) came back. Police said that information helped point them in the right direction. The department activated its missing person task force, re-interviewed several people and collected both new testimonial and physical evidence

Investigators in Jamestown said they're confident they'll soon solve the disappearance of Yolanda Bindics.
Lt. Todd Isaacson of the Jamestown Police Department indicated that police have a good idea as to what happened in August 2004 when Ms. Bindics vanished with little trace and a fair share of rumor and speculation. ‘‘We certainly have our theories,’’ he said. ‘‘Proving it is the next step. We need to have all the pieces of the puzzle.’’ He would not comment on specifics — though he indicated the evidence, which he described as ‘‘quite sensitive in nature,’’ points to a specific individual. ‘‘We just don’t want to tip our cards,’’ he said. ‘‘The person out there knows who we’re talking about.’’

Part of the "narrowing" of the Bindics case has been the closing in one specific suspect in her disappearance. Issacson won't go into specifics... but, does say investigators are closer to determining that person than they were more than a year ago. When pressed about particular individuals — such as Michael Watson, the former Jamestown police officer who knew Ms. Bindics, and Clarence Carte, the father of one of her children — Isaacson merely said they are persons of interest, ‘‘as with many people in Yolanda’s life.’’ Though Isaacson described Watson as a ‘‘person of interest’’ and Carte as ‘‘someone we would like to continue to talk to,’’ he would not elaborate. He also said they have ruled out ‘‘quite a few people.’’

They are now waiting for additional physical evidence to be analyzed, and it's not known how long that could take. This additional physical evidence is a follow up to evidence recently analyzed at the FBI Crime Lab in Quantico, Virginia. There's no timeline for how long it will take for the tests to return from Quantico. However, DNA being obtained is considered a credible addition to an otherwise circumstantial case.

« Reply #64 on: Aug 10th, 2006, 2:45pm »

(Jamestown, NY, August 10, 2006) - - Two years ago today, a Jamestown mother mysteriously vanished.

Thursday, there's still no sign of Yolanda Bindics.

On August 10th, 2004, the mother of four left work at Family Dollar in Jamestown.

She has not been seen since.

Police have recovered several of her belongings including her purse.

So far, investigators do not have any idea what happened to her.

xx Yolanda Bindics’ Body Discovered Close To Popular
« Reply #65 on: Sep 23rd, 2006, 7:38pm »

By PATRICK L. FANELLI



9/20/2006 - CHARLOTTE — For weeks, State Police and county sheriff’s deputies scoured the woods of northern Chautauqua County for fugitive Ralph Phillips with no idea the body of missing Jamestown woman Yolanda Bindics lay only a few miles away.

It was only by chance that hunters came across her body, which presumably lay there for more than two years as the Jamestown Police Department investigated her baffling disappearance.

‘‘It was absolutely a break in the case,’’ said County Sheriff Joseph Gerace, who is now helping the Jamestown Police Department investigate Ms. Bindics’ death. ‘‘We are fortunate they were able to discover it and recognize that what they were seeing were human remains.’’

The body was discovered on state land in the northeastern corner of the town of Charlotte, though it took a few days for the remains to be identified as Ms. Bindics.

That stretch of woods is part of the Boutwell Hill State Forest and the Earl O. Cardot Eastside Overland Trail — a 19-mile trail system that stretches from Gerry to Arkwright and is primarily used for hiking, mountain biking and cross-country skiing.

The state forest is roughly one mile wide with the trail running right through the middle, which means two years’ worth of hikers and skiers were within a half mile of the body.

Nevertheless, law enforcement authorities aren’t surprised it took so long for the body to be discovered — in fact, they count it as blind luck.

‘‘It’s a forest. It’s state land out in the middle of nowhere — a very desolate, typical state forest,’’ said Lt. Todd Isaacson of the Jamestown Police Department. ‘‘There are some trails up there in that area, but it was just by chance that these hunters came across it. We can only be grateful for that, not only for the family, but for the investigation.’’

The reason they consider themselves lucky for the discovery is that there is little reason for anyone to leave the trail and venture out into the surrounding woods. Even if a hiker did decide to leave the trail, the woods are extremely thick and visibility is greatly diminished by the foliage — so much so that one would almost have to stumble on the exact spot to find it.

According to Gerace, those woods were never searched during the Phillips manhunt, since police activity in Charlotte was limited to the western half of the town nearer to Cassadaga.

Also, Jamestown police — which primarily concentrated their search efforts within the city limits — had no reason to venture out there in hopes of finding a body.

‘‘We based a lot of our search efforts on investigative insight gained through interviews and the family,’’ Isaacson said. ‘‘So obviously, searches were based on information obtained through those interviews.’’

Aside from the Fluvanna Avenue corridor, Jamestown police searched the area around Jones and Gifford Avenue, the county landfill in Ellery and the Chautauqua Gorge.

Initially, there was even some suspicion the body was missing Lakewood resident Lori Ceci Bova, who vanished June 8, 1997, since the Boutwell Hill State Forest was not one of the areas searched in the aftermath of her disappearance.

‘‘That particular area was never brought up,’’ said Inv. Paul Gustafson of the Lakewood-Busti Police Department.

According to Gustafson, who has been investigating Mrs. Ceci-Bova’s disappearance since it was first reported nine years ago, there was an extensive search in the southern half of Chautauqua County conducted by friends, family, volunteers and law enforcement officials, who would literally line up and scour any place where a body could have been deposited.

‘‘What we did starting right from day one was our initial searches began at (Lori’s home), and we basically worked out from there with any likely area where we felt there was the possibility of locating Lori,’’ Gustafson said.

But their searches were never conducted as far away as Charlotte and the Boutwell Hill State Forest. The same was true for the Jamestown Police Department.

Ms. Bindics, mother of four, vanished Aug. 10, 2004. She was last scene leaving the Family Dollar store on Fluvanna Avenue. Until her body was recovered, the only physical evidence that ever turned up was her vehicle parked at Arby’s on Fluvanna Avenue and her purse and car keys that washed up out of storm drains south of Chadakoin Park a month after her disappearance.

The medical examiner has not yet determined the cause of Ms. Bindics’ death.

xx Missing woman's death ruled a homicide
« Reply #67 on: Dec 20th, 2006, 09:51am »

MAYVILLE, N.Y. (AP) — A woman whose skeletal remains were found two years after she went missing was the victim of a homicide, authorities said Friday.

Yolanda Bindics, 25, of Jamestown, was found in Sept. 10 by hunters on densely wooded state land in the town of Charlotte.

David W. Foley, Chautauqua County's district attorney, said investigators now know the cause of Bindics' death, but declined to provide details. No suspects were named Friday.

The homicide ruling followed an investigation by a forensic anthropologist and the medical examiner's office at Erie County Medical Center. Foley said the medical experts' findings were an important part of the puzzle in helping solve the case.

Bindics, a mother of four, was last seen after leaving work at a Jamestown Family Dollar store on Aug. 10, 2004. A day later, her car was found in the parking lot of a nearby fast-food restaurant and a month later, her purse, wallet and keys turned up in storm-sewer catch basins.
