CALGARY- Police have charged an Edmonton man with murder in a cold case from more than 20 years ago.

Police say Daniel Boysis, 22, was last seen at his Calgary home in 1996.

Two years later, investigators were given information that led them to believe that he was a victim of a crime.

A homicide investigation was launched but due to the lack of evidence and the fact that the body of Boysis had not been found, the case went cold.

However, detectives began reviewing the case in 2016 gathered additional evidence that they say links the case to a former roommate of Boysis.

Randolph Westman, 57, has been charged with second-degree murder and indignity to a dead body.
