The family of missing Victoria woman Nancy Clark was notified that her disappearance has been connected to the police task force investigating the Port Coquitlam, B.C., pig farm of accused serial killer Robert (Willie) Pickton.
Clark's family was notified Tuesday of the new development in her case by Victoria police detectives and members of the Lower Mainland's Missing Women's Task Force.
''It's kind of sad, but kind of a relief for them,''said Victoria police acting Insp. Les Sylven. ''To hear nothing for years and years, and then to get some kind of information, no doubt most people would feel relieved.''
The Missing Women's Task Force has seized tens of thousands of exhibits from Pickton's farm, and some of that evidence is still being analyzed in police labs across the country.
So far, Pickton stands charged with killing 26 missing sex trade workers whose DNA was located on the property during a massive police search between February 2002 and November 2003.
