TMZ reports that family members were informed of Yancy's death around 2:30 a.m. on Tuesday morning. It was reported by LA Times that law enforcement authorities were conducting an investigation into his apparent death by natural causes and ETOnline reported that drugs are not suspected to have caused his sudden death.
TMZ reports Yancy was found by a friend in his San Fernando Valley, California, apartment. He worked in the music industry.
Investigators believe Yancy died of a heart attack, according to his family. "Our mother and sister well-beloved, we will miss her very much and will remain UNFORGETTABLE in our hearts forever", he had jointly testified in a press release written with her aunts, Timolin and Casey Cole, in reference to the title Unforgettable (Unforgettable in French), tribute and remake of Natalie Cole with her late dad.
