Another tragedy for Virks

Tragedy has struck again for the Victoria family of a teen whose death 20 years ago shocked the nation.

Suman Virk died over the weekend in what family members are calling a tragic accident. No details of the death have been released.

Suman was the mother of Reena Virk, who died as a teenager in a dramatic bullying incident in 1998 in which she was beaten and held underwater by her attackers in Victoria's Gorge area.

The murder led to second-degree murder charges against two of her attackers. Kelly Ellard remains in prison, but was granted day parole last year.

A memorial service for Suman is planned for Saturday at Victoria's Kingdom Hall. The family has asked for privacy as they mourn.
