Murder remains unsolved after eight years

Lindsay Buziak’s father frustrated by lack of progress in case

It’s been a long eight years for Jeff Buziak. Anger and frustration have been constant companions since his daughter Lindsay Buziak was killed while showing a home in Gordon Head in February 2008.

Ask Saanich Police and the Buziak case is not only still ongoing, it’s still active, with officers actively researching tips and information still coming in that’s investigated.

The thought of it only angers Jeff Buziak even more.

In 2010, Buziak said he met with Saanich Police and was told two things. First, that his own life was in danger. Second, that Lindsay’s unsolved murder from Feb. 2, 2008, was becoming a cold case.

However, it didn’t become a cold case, and yet six years later there still hasn’t been a lead suspect since boyfriend Jason Zailo was cleared.

“We get an innocent young women executed, stabbed 40 times, throat slashed – they absolutely massacred her – and where are we? Nowhere,” Buziak says. “We’ve heard nothing from the police for eight years, how can the police face anyone for eight years?”

Buziak lives in Calgary but visits annually on the day of Lindsay’s murder for the Lindsay Buziak Walk for Justice, which starts at 10 a.m. on Tuesday from the gates of the Royal Oak Burial Park where Lindsay’s ashes remain.

Lindsay was a 24-year-old real estate agent when she was brutally slain while showing a home on De Sousa Place in Gordon Head.

Saanich Police said at the time Buziak was targeted and, in her position as a real estate agent, was lured to the empty luxury home where the murder took place.

In 2010 the crime was documented by NBC’s Dateline.

For years Buziak has been outspoken in both his support of the police and also in his disappointment, which is about all he has left now.

“It’s bullshit. If you or I am tasked with a project and we have nothing to show for it after six months, we’re not doing that job anymore,” Jeff said.

“As Canadians we’re psychologically conditioned for what the police say, ‘Oh this is a complicated case and takes as lot of time.’ No, it’s bullshit, when they want to do something they get it done.”

Sympathizers are flying in from out of town to do the walk. They’re coming in support, whether it’s because they have someone who’s been murdered in their family or not, Jeff said.

 

Tuesday’s walk will take place rain or shine.
