JAMESTOWN, NY (WNY News Now) – Chautauqua County’s cold case squad are continuing efforts to investigate the decades old homicide of a Jamestown woman, now asking for the public’s help in identifying movements of a possible suspect.

The Chautauqua County Sheriff’s Office Unsolved Cases unit provided an update in the murder of Jamestown mother Yolanda Bindics on Friday.

Bindics was last seen leaving the Family Dolor Store on Fluvanna Avenue in Jamestown on Tuesday, August 10, 2004 around 8:10 p.m. Two years later, her remains were discovered in a wooded area in the Town of Charlotte.

Investigators now want to speak with anyone who saw, or spoke with, Clarence Carl Carte between 7 p.m. that night and 6 a.m. the next morning. Carte, detectives say, previously lived in Buffalo Street in Jamestown and was the father of Bindics youngest child.

He was seen at the nearby Kwik Fill Store on Fluvanna Avenue at around the same time Bindics went missing.
