JAMESTOWN – A remembrance vigil will be held in tribute to a decades old cold case murder of a Jamestown woman next month.

The family of Yolanda Bindics is holding a community vigil at Bergman Park on Tuesday, August 10 at 7 p.m.

The tribute will feature guest speaker Kara Latta with the Erie Awakening Group.

Bindics, a mother of four, was last seen on August 10 closing up the Family Dollar on Fluvanna Avenue where she worked.

Though her body was discovered two years later, no arrests have been made and the circumstances around her death still remain a mystery.

Last month WNY News Now spoke with Yolanda’s daughter, Allison Bindics, who reminded us that even though the case has gone cold, there is still an intense push by her family to find justice.

“Cold cases, they’re very easy to, not forget about, but they get swept under the rug. Just don’t forget her, don’t forget that the family will never be done trying to get justice for her,” said Bindics.

There remains a $21,000 reward for new information regarding her mother’s murder.

While Bindics says she must be careful what she says publicly, she has formulated her own theory as to what happened to her mom, saying she was likely taken by someone she trusted.
