(Alaska-Floatplanes-Crash-Cdn)(Audio:23)

Six people died in Monday's midair crash of two sightseeing floatplanes in southeast Alaska -- including a Canadian woman and an Australian man.

The bodies of the two missing foreign passengers were recovered from the crash site Tuesday night.

Alaska State Troopers identified the Canadian as 37-year-old Elsa Wilk from Richmond, B-C.

She, along with the Australian victim, were aboard the smaller de Havilland Beaver plane that collided with another larger floatplane.

Both were carrying two pilots and 14 passengers --- all tourists from the Royal Princess cruise ship -- when the planes collided near Ketchikan.

The cruise ship left Vancouver last Saturday bound for Anchorage, and is scheduled to return May 25th.(2)

Terri-Lynn McClintic and her boyfriend Michael Rafferty were convicted of first-degree murder in the 2009 kidnapping, rape and death of eight-year-old Tori Stafford of Woodstock, Ontario.

The pair made headlines last year when Rafferty was transferred to a medium-security prison and McClintic was moved to a minimum-security healing lodge in Saskatchewan where Indigenous beliefs and traditions are used to help rehabilitate inmates.

A judge ruled Monday that a review of McClintic's transfer to an Edmonton prison and then back to one near Kitchener, Ontario is warranted, but additional papers need to be filed before it can proceed.(2)
