DEATH NOTICE - Novelette Yancy

Posted: 1326759104000
Classification: Death
Surnames: Yancy

I stumbled upon this case and was astonished to find that there is very little information on the Internet about this case. It makes me wonder why. Nevertheless, I wanted to put it on here. Someone out there knows what happened to this victim.

On Thursday, September 16, 1982, concerned family members arrived at the Syracuse, New York apartment of 20-year-old Novelette Yancy after not hearing from her for a long time. This was not normal behavior for her.

What they found would leave unanswered questions that may never be answered.

Novelette was dead in her apartment. Manner of death was homicide, but the only info I could find did not list how.

She was only 5’2″ and weighed 114 pounds. It wouldn’t take much to overpower this young, beautiful woman.

Unfortunately, this is all the information I could find. Someone out there knows something. Novelette deserves justice.

People with information are encouraged to contact the Syracuse Police Department Cold Case Homicide Squad at 315-442-5234 or by email at
