DNA links convicted killer to missing girl
by UPI

WEST LOTHIAN, Scotland -- Police in Scotland have reportedly found DNA linking a convicted killer to the case of a girl who disappeared in 1991, The Telegraph said Wednesday.

The newspaper said excavations in the garden of the Bathgate home of Peter Tobin seized by Lothian and Borders Police had yielded evidence linked to Vicky Hamilton, who was reported missing in February 1991.

Tobin, a 60-year-old church handyman, was convicted in April of raping and killing a Polish exchange student and burying her body beneath a Glasgow church floor.

"A number of samples that were taken from the house ... are currently undergoing scientific examination and Lothian and Borders Police is not yet in a position to definitively report on the outcome of those examinations," a police spokesman said in The Telegraph article.

Tobin's house is less than a mile from where Hamilton was last seen in 1991 as she was changing buses, the report said.
