Wetaskiwin, Alberta – RCMP Major Crimes South has arrested and charged a 38-year-old man from Camrose with the murder of Jessica Wyoma Lynn Boysis who was last seen on Tuesday, July 15, 2014 and whose body was found in a treed area behind a Wetaskiwin business three days later on Friday, July 18.

On Friday, October 14, 2016, John Joseph William Profeit was arrested in Camrose and charged with one count of Second Degree Murder. He is scheduled to make his first appearance in Wetaskiwin Queen’s Bench Court on Tuesday, November 1st at 9:30 A.M.

The case was worked continuously for over two years as investigators pieced together evidence leading them to identify a suspect in Ms. Boysis’ murder.
