A Tear we shed for you Angel and your Family.

The body of a 19-year-old Whitehorse woman missing since May was found over the weekend, Whitehorse RCMP confirmed on Tuesday.

Family and friends had spent the past 5? months searching for Angel Carlick, who was last seen on May 27.

Angel Carlick, whose body was found in Whitehorse over the weekend, was last seen around the time of her high school graduation in May.

Speaking to reporters Tuesday morning, RCMP Sgt. Roger Lockwood said the human remains of a young woman were found Friday "in a residential subdivision" off of the Takhini Hotsprings near Pilot Mountain.

"It was confirmed over the weekend that the remains are that of the deceased individual, Angel Edna Carlick," Lockwood said.

Lockwood said police do not yet know how Carlick died or whether she died in the area where her body was found.

Police blocked off a large section of the Pilot Mountain area on Tuesday, limiting road access to local traffic only.

This is really terrible news. The city is quite small, only about 30,000 people I think, but seems to have a lot of murders for a place that small. As a small place, it should not be that hard to figure out who did it.

Lengthy search for teen has grim ending
By Sarah Vanderwolf
The five and a half-month search for missing teenager Angel Carlick came to a tragic end last Friday afternoon when her remains were discovered in a forested area north of the Pilot Mountain subdivision.
A Whitehorse citizen who was walking in the area discovered the human remains and immediately contacted police.
The RCMP received the call at approximately 2:51 p.m.
The RCMP Major Crimes Unit, Forensic Identification and Police Dog Services immediately went to the scene and recovered the human remains.
The remains were positively identified late Monday evening as those of Angel Eda Carlick, 19, Sgt. Roger Lockwood told a press conference this morning.
?We understand that many may find this news upsetting,? said Lockwood.
?Our thoughts and prayers are with Angel Carlick?s family and friends at this time.?
?We?re all in shock,? Vicki Durrant, executive director of the Blue Feather Youth Centre, where Carlick used to work, told the Star this morning.
?We have a lot to deal with right now.?
She declined to comment further.
The area where Carlick?s remains were found has been barricaded off and police are gathering further evidence.
Lockwood said he ?certainly cannot speculate? how long Carlick?s remains had been there. He said he was unable to provide further information as to the condition of her remains.
Although extensive searches had been conducted in the Whitehorse area for any signs of Carlick, the area where her remains were found had not been searched, said Lockwood.
The RCMP had also conducted more than 100 interviews with Carlick?s family, friends and co-workers as part of their investigation into her disappearance.
Carlick was added to a missing persons database and police in Alaska, Alberta, and British Columbia were alerted to her disappearance, said Lockwood.
An autopsy will be conducted to determine the cause of death, although Lockwood said he didn?t know when it would take place.
The Yukon Coroner?s Office declined to comment on the investigation.
The only clue about Carlick?s disappearance discovered during the search was her bicycle, which was found locked up at the Family Hotel in downtown Whitehorse last July.
Carlick was reported missing late last May.
The RCMP have determined that she was last seen between May 26 and 31, 2007.

Whitehorse teen's death renews calls for youth shelter
Last Updated: Thursday, November 15, 2007 | 9:19 AM CT
CBC News
Friends of 19-year-old Angel Carlick, whose body was found last week near Whitehorse, say they hope her death will create a legacy in the form of a homeless-youth shelter ? something the slain teenager had called for when she was alive.
"She was an awesome girl, and we lost a great contributor to society," Vicki Durrant, executive director of the Blue Feather Youth Centre, said Wednesday.
"We want to continue what Angel fought for."
Whitehorse RCMP confirmed on Tuesday that they had found the body of Carlick, who had been missing since May, in a wooded area in the Pilot Mountain subdivision on Friday. Police are currently awaiting the results of an autopsy as they investigate her death.
Carlick had worked at the downtown Whitehorse youth centre before her disappearance. At the time, friends said Carlick was putting her life together: she was graduating from high school, holding down a job and rooming with a friend while she dreamed of finding her own place to live.
It was a change from October 2006, when a then homeless Carlick had talked to CBC News about life on the streets. At the time, she had spoken publicly several times about the need for a homeless-youth shelter.
"After work you have to find, like, somewhere to stay, or you have to find somewhere to ? take a shower or something," Carlick said in an interview.
Shortly after learning Carlick's body had been found, friends renewed their calls for the Yukon government to create a youth shelter. Family friend Irma Scarff told CBC News that Carlick's death might have been prevented if she and other homeless youth had a safe place to stay.
Whitehorse used to have a homeless-youth shelter, but the Road to Home shelter closed its doors in 2004 due to a lack of funding.
Durrant said she hopes to release details soon on a new shelter currently in the works. If such a shelter becomes a reality, she said, she believes it will serve as a legacy to Carlick's life.

Youth coming to terms with teen?s death
By Sarah Vanderwolf
Angel Carlick?s friends and colleagues at the Blue Feather Youth Centre are determined she will not have died in vain, says Sandra Bryce, manager of victim services for the Yukon government.
?The young people want to do something,? Bryce said in an interview this morning. ?What we want is to celebrate her life.?
Carlick, 19, was reported missing late last May. Whitehorse RCMP determined she was last seen between May 26 and 31.
Her remains were discovered in a forested area north of the Pilot Mountain subdivision last Friday.
An autopsy has been ordered to determine the cause of death, and the RCMP are continuing to investigate the case.
So far, members of the Second Avenue youth centre have planned commemorations of Carlick?s life for the next three days, to be held at the centre from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. All are welcome.
On Tuesday evening, several MLAs, Justice Minister Marian Horne and ?a number of people who just wanted to show their concern and care? attended a commemorative event at the centre.
There was ?a genuine outpouring of sympathy,? said Bryce. Drumming, singing, and prayer have all been a part of the commemoration so far, she added.
Counsellors from the Kwanlin Dun First Nation also attended the commemoration, as well as three clergy members.
Bryce and her colleagues are also offering counselling services to those who have been affected by Carlick?s death.
The young woman?s friends and colleagues at the centre are making a commemorative wreath in her honour.
They have also initiated a memory book for people to express their condolences. As well, the centre is passing out blue ribbons for people to wear and show their support.
?Blue was (Carlick?s) favourite colour,? explained Bryce.
She said she is impressed with ?the resiliency of the youth? during this very difficult time.
?They express their feelings, and support each other. I?ve seen very strong feelings of support for (Carlick?s) family.?
Bryce said the terrible confirmation of Carlick?s death has at least provided her loved ones with a sense of closure.
?It?s been 5 1/2 months. What some of the young people are saying is that they have closure.?
Bryce added that those who knew Carlick said it wasn?t in her character to disappear and suspend contact with those important to her.
Carlick?s friends were also wary of the fact that Carlick never picked up her most recent paycheque from the Blue Feather Youth Centre, where she had worked.
?(Carlick?s death) kind of validated what their suspicions were,? said Bryce.
?It is a terrible thing, but for lots of people, at least it?s done. They can do some proper grieving.?
Members of the centre are also showing a video that includes footage of Carlick as part of their commemoration of her life.
?The video is quite fabulous,? said Bryce.
?It?s a prevention video on personal safety (in relation to drugs and alcohol), and (Carlick) was one of the actresses.?
The youth centre is accepting donations for Carlick?s family members, some of whom have already arrived in Whitehorse from Good Hope Lake, B.C.

Well, maybe Whitehorse does have a low murder rate, but I get the impression that most cities with 30,000 people only have 2 or 3 every 10 years. I admit I might be wrong here and I am sorry. I have been there 2 times and did find it to be very civil and seemed very safe.

Does anyone know if the police ever found somebody responsible for this young girl's murder?

Been thinking whether to reply here publicly.

The alias Candice Boyle rings an alarm for me, particularly when I lived in Edmonton.

I am going to speak to one of my old colleagues.

I think it's very possible she was there at least at some point and her killer might be from that area if this is the same girl.  Would not really explain why her body was found in Whitehorse though.

If she was in Edmonton, did she go back to Whitehorse?  Can they tell roughly when she was murdered?  That would help pinpoint who did it.

Here are a couple of more recent (I hesitate to use that word) articles concerning Angel Carlick that I found. Unfortunately there don't seem to have been any developments in her case.

First a short article ruling out any potential involvement by Keyes.

Angel Carlick death not related to serial killer Israel Keyes, police say
Police say serial killer wasn't in area when Yukon woman disappeared

CBC News Posted: Sep 09, 2013 12:05 PM CT Last Updated: Sep 09, 2013 1:03 PM CT


Police on both sides of the Alaska border say they're confident there's no connection between an Alaska serial killer and the death of a Whitehorse woman.

Angel Carlick disappeared in May of 2007. Her body was later found in November of that year in the bush near the Pilot Mountain subdivision.

RCMP Cpl. Mark Caswell, who is working on the case with Yukon's Major Crime Unit, says the recent story of serial killer Israel Keyes is unrelated to her disappearance.

Israel Keyes was arrested and admitted killing an Anchorage barista as well as ten other people, before killing himself in an Anchorage jail cell last year. Since then, police have been working to determine where Keyes was when Carlick disappeared.

"Investigators from here touched base with the FBI in Anchorage, Alaska and have determined that Mr. Keyes was not in the Whitehorse area during the time frame we were investigating" Caswell said.

Caswell says a dedicated team is continuing to actively investigate any leads into Carlick's death. He says anyone with information is urged to contact police.

STILL NO ANSWERS – The circumstances of Angel Carlick's disappearance and death in 2007 remain a mystery.

Three years have passed since Angel Carlick's body was found in the Pilot Mountain subdivision,

By Justine Davidson on November 9, 2010

Three years have passed since Angel Carlick's body was found in the Pilot Mountain subdivision, but police are still searching for people who may be able to provide them with clues to the mystery of the girl's disappearance and death.

"Police would like to thank those individuals who came forward with information over the last year,” the RCMP's Whitehorse major crimes unit said in a statement released Monday.

"Investigators continue to follow up on all leads but believe there are still individuals with information who have not yet come forward.”

The 19-year-old girl disappeared in May 2007, shortly before she was to graduate from high school.

In the weeks following, police put out a missing persons report and a public plea for Carlick to contact them to let her family know she was OK. But Carlick's friends and family felt sure she was not OK and set up search parties to look for clues.

In mid-July, friends identified a bicycle which had been locked up in front of the Family Hotel as Carlick's.

The hotel's owners said the bike had been there for about a month, search organizer Irma Scarff said at the time, but they didn't know who it belonged to.

On July 29, 2007, in an open response to concerns the case was not being taken seriously, Insp. Tracy Hardy of the RCMP said it was "receiving priority attention.”

Hardy said the RCMP had conducted air, land, and water searches; had spoken to friends, family and co-workers; and had alerted police in B.C., Alberta, and Alaska to her disappearance.

But Carlick never left the territory.

On Friday, Nov. 9, 2007, a member of the public walking through the trails around the Pilot Mountain subdivision just north of Whitehorse spotted what looked like human remains. Police were called to the scene and by the following Monday confirmed it was Carlick's body.

Police have never reported having any significant leads or suspects in the case.

"(The) RCMP has realigned resources to further their investigative process,” according to Monday's statement.

"This will include a file review to ensure all leads have been properly and thoroughly investigated.”

Spokesman Sgt. Don Rogers said a review of this kind is common practice.

Police are hoping to hear from anyone who may have seen something suspicious in the forested area north of the Pilot Mountain subdivision between May and November of 2007.

In the news her mother has also been murdered. Very sad.  I can't even imagine the pain her family are enduring.

That sounds to me like someone is stalking the entire family for whatever reason.
