The second Walk for Justice to honour slain realtor Lindsay Buziak will be held Thursday, marking four years since the 24-year-old’s tragic death.

Organized by her father, Jeff Buziak, the walk begins at 10 a.m. at Royal Oak Burial Park, and ends at the Saanich police department. It will detour to 1702 De Sousa Pl., the home in which Buziak was stabbed to death on Feb. 2, 2008.

Her murder remains unsolved, and, according to Saanich police spokesperson Sgt. Dean Jantzen, it remains the highest-priority case investigators work on.

“We have a team that work on (solving this murder) every day. That’s all they do,” Jantzen said.

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

More than 100 people turned out for last year’s Walk for Justice, including Jason Zailo, Buziak’s boyfriend at the time of her death. He found her body in the De Sousa Place home.

Jantzen said police won’t release any new information in recognition of the fourth anniversary of her death. Despite the case receiving very high-profile attention in 2010, police said last year that they were no closer to solving the murder than they were the year before.
