    There is scant information for Sylvia available on the internet. It's a shame.

    This week will mark 35 years that Sylvia has been missing. Come home soon.

    Though I've lived on Staten Island for the last forty two years, I have to admit I have no recollection of Sylvia or her disappearance. Though I would have been fairly young at the time my love of mystery meant I was always keenly aware of crime in the news. I've asked a few friends and family members if they remember the case but so far no one has.

    Staten Island has always had a pretty low crime rate, especially violent crime and the only serial killers connected to the Island that come quickly to mind are Andre Rand (the subject of the documentary Cropsey), Richard Biegenwald and, a century ago, Albert Fish. Rand tended to prey on children and Biegerwald seems to have committed his crimes in New Jersey, though a number of victims were discovered in the basement of his mother's house on Staten Island and, from the timeline on Wikipedia, he seems to have been out of prison at the time of Sylvia's disappearance.

    Of course serial killers aren't the only predators well versed in the art of disposing of an inconvenient body. Staten Island may not be knee deep in serial killers but we do have a long and infamous tradition of organized crime. I have no doubt there are any number of "goodfellas" out there who would know exactly how to make a body disappear.

    Assuming the fiancé’s story is to be believed, and with so little information to go on that may be a fairly broad assumption, it's possible Sylvia ran into someone who did her harm and then had the knowledge, or knew a guy with the knowledge, of how to make certain she was never found.

    Until more details emerge the possibilities are endless. I'm going to continue to ask around to see if I can find anyone who remembers the case plus I'll check out our local paper to see if they have anything in their archive.

    The Boyfriend is guilty... no other reason.

    Back in the seventies and eighties, when woman were murdered, the killers would claim:

    "Oh, she just ranaway,"

    "She ranaway, who knows if she will come back,"

    Hundreds of cases later, we know that this exscuse is bunk - and we have solid evidence frrom these historical cases that whoever introduces the runaway theme, is the guitly party.

    So here we have the boyfriend,
    <modsnip>, who is the one last seen with her. The Police, it appears, did nothing with this case and it looks <modsnip>

    The Detective in charge of this case has refused to even answer simple questions. "Detective Lennon"

    I think the time has come for justice and the websleuthing community is the golden warchest of wisdom where one can find assistance in the form of idea generation, and ways to go about bringing justice.

    Can you believe they still continue to reference this as a Missing Persons case>??

    IN-CREDIBLE.

    Let's get some answers... more to come.

    Best,
    The Gajonka

    BBM: That's a REALLY broad assumption. Wonder whatever became of the boyfriend AND how hard anyone in LE looked for her?

    Regarding the MP report: The notation "Det Lennon advises will not handle". I cannot make out the date of the notation..looks like 9/7/75 16:45. The date of the report looks like 9/7/75 17:00. Did LE decide that same night not to look into Sylvia's disappearance? I am probably not reading the times correctly as the notation of time was before the policeman started the MP report.

    Anyway, wonder if there is a possibility that Det. Lennon did not want to handle the case but assigned it to another detective??

    I cannot be of any help, but this is an interesting case.

    Did Sylvia have any siblings?

    Did she live with her fiance?

    Appears that her father passed away in the 1990's and her mother, a few years ago.

    Who, if anyone, had been advocating for Ms. Lwowski's return during the last 35+ years?

    Are there newspaper articles in archives that can be accessed?
    It would be good to see those as well

    Where is the fiance now?
    How is it possible for a police force to shut down an investigation before it starts?

    Good question

    I am very intrigued by this story, but, unfortunately, there seems to be so little to work with.

    I am hoping more information can be brought forth

    The thought of a young woman disappearing without a trace is horrible
    The thought of nothing being done about it is worse

    I am hoping to learn there was some kind of investigation done and would like to know the details

    So many questions....
