A Brooklyn woman was found strangled in her home, and police are considering her adopted son to be a person of interest, reports the New York Daily News .
On Monday, police discovered 70-year-old Noreen Mulzac dead in her bedroom, and a medical examiner ruled her death to be a homicide on Tuesday, citing the cause of death as ligature strangulation. Police also said on Tuesday that her 28-year-old adopted son, Jayvon Mulzac, was a person of interest in the case, and relatives said that they feared he was involved because they have not heard from him.
“I haven’t seen him or heard from him,” said Dominique Mackey, 31, Jayvon’s biological sister. “The whole family is waiting to hear from him…If it was him, I just want say: You are a coward. Why do this to your mother?”
Shiffon Mulzac, 29, who was also adopted by Mulzac, said that she sent her boyfriend to check on her mother when she dropped out of contact. So, her boyfriend was the one to discover her mother’s death, finding her with an electric cord wrapped around her legs and a shirt wrapped around her neck.
“My boyfriend went there to break down the door,” said Shiffon. “He’s the one who found her … It’s good I didn’t see her. I would not want to see her like that.”
This would not be the first time that Jayvon has been involved in a crime against his mother. In 2006, according to court records, he climbed in through her window and then let in two more men, who then committed armed robbery. Jayvon reportedly tied his mother and another female relative to chairs using duct tape.
One of the other suspects reportedly pistol-whipped Mulzac, pulled four braids out of her head, and warned her, “Motherf—-r, I am going to kill you if you don’t give me the money!”
The suspect, Jesse Hoyt, left with the keys to Noreen’s 2006 Nissan Murano, two gold watches, a gold bracelet, a laptop and $2,800 in cash.
