Canada - Edgar Leonardo, 36, Vancouver, 23 Aug 2003
"Who killed Edgar Leonardo?
That's the question Tracy Tomic asks herself over and over when she thinks of her late friend Edgar Leonardo, who was last seen alive Aug 23, 2003.
The case of the 36-year-old's killing remains one of Vancouver’s unsolved cases, but for Tomic, it’s part of her reality.
"It kind of never really went away," she tells Xtra.
The Vancouver Police Department (VPD) assures the community that no unsolved homicide case is ever closed.
Tomic says it was she and Leonardo’s landlady who found his body in his West End apartment four days after he failed to show up for work at Air Canada.
"He didn't show up for work, which wasn't normal," Tomic recalls. "He was a workaholic."

Det. Rich Akin, of the Vancouver Police Department Homicide Unit, made a plea for public assistance in the death of Edgar Leonardo, whose body was found in his apartment at 1601 Comox St. on August 27th of last year. Media attention was focused on the Kelowna firestorms at the time and a need for new leads has necessitated another request for information from the public.
Edgar Leonardo was last seen at his family residence in East Vancouver on August 23, 2003, when he left to go home. His body was discovered inside his apartment by a friend on August 27th. He was 36-years-old.
Edgar was a new member to the gay community and frequented coffee shops and internet cafes in the West End. He is described as being well-loved, friendly and social. Police believe he may have been murdered by someone he met.
Delany's on Denman is graciously hosting a Crimestoppers Re-enactment tonight at 7:00. Anyone with any information is asked to contact the Vancouver Police Department Major Crime Section at 604-717-2500 or the Crimestoppers Tips Line at 1-800-222-8477."
