An Edmonton man has pleaded guilty to manslaughter in the death of his roommate when the two lived in Calgary more than 20 years ago.

Daniel Boysis, also known as Daniel Morgan Turner, was killed in 1996 when he was 22, but was not reported missing for a significant time as he had fallen out of contact with his family.

Investigators suspected he had been murdered, but his remains were never found.

In 2018, Randolph Westman was charged with second-degree murder and committing an indignity to a dead body after a review of the case led to new information.

Westman’s attorney Darren Mahoney confirmed to CTV News that his client entered a guilty plea to the lesser charge of manslaughter.

A date for sentencing has not been confirmed.
