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.
