COLUMBUS, Ohio (WCMH) – The family of the woman found dead in the Columbus police impound lot speaks out for the first time. Police found Falyce Yuill dead inside of a car at the Columbus Police Impound lot Monday.
In an exclusive interview with NBC4’s Rob Sneed, Faye Yuill struggled to understand how her daughter could end up that way.
“It has been quite a shock,” said Yuill.
Yuill’s cousin Crystal Veazy-Watson is peeved as well.
“More than anything we are frustrated. Because we kept kind of saying. Assuming that the police would check everywhere. Especially ’cause we said what about the car? In her case, it looks like based on the info I have, that car was sitting on Shanley Drive for starting on either March 10th or March 11 and was reported on March 10th,” Veazy-Watson said.
She said eventually someone complained about the car and the city had it towed to the police impound lot March 15.
“But a registered letter did not come into April first,” Veazy-Watson said.
That’s the day police say they found Yuill’s body inside the car.
“It looks like the police need better coordination between their units,” Veazy-Watson said.
It’s what Yuill’s mother would like to see happen too. As she plans her daughter’s funeral, she said she’s focused on the memories of Yuill and remember the love she had for her church, and her fun-loving spirit.
“She was loved by everyone. She was a very happy person and she left in a very happy mood,” said Yuill.
The family doesn’t know if they will get a lawyer regarding this case. They say they’re just focused on her funeral and waiting for an exact cause of death. NBC4 reached out to police, but no one called us back.
