Unsolved Lindsay Buziak murder hits five-year mark

The real estate agent was found dead in a home she was showing in Gordon Head in 2008

Jeff Buziak doesn’t look at Feb. 2 as an anniversary.

“I look at it as the murder day, five years hence,” he says, referring to tomorrow marking five years since his 24-year-old daughter Lindsay was found stabbed to death in a Saanich home.

Lindsay Buziak was a happy girl with a huge smile. She loved her friends and she loved her family. This is how Jeff forever remembers his daughter.

“There’s a high level of sadness, and a deep resolve to carry on. I miss my girl,” he says.

Lindsay’s murder remains unsolved. The young real estate agent was found dead in a home she was showing at 1702 De Sousa Pl. in Gordon Head.

Saanich 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.

On Saturday, Jeff will hold the third annual Lindsay Buziak Walk for Justice.

The walk begins at 10 a.m at Royal Oak Burial Park, where Lindsay’s ashes are kept, and participants will convoy past the De Sousa Place home, and finish at the Saanich municipal complex on Vernon Avenue.

“It’s not a protest, it’s just a quiet walk,” Jeff says.

“Yes, I carry a sign, just to say, ‘My daughter was murdered here. She was a good young woman. She was working while she was murdered. That could be you, that could be your sister, that could be your mom going to work,’” Jeff says.

While he says he’s aired his frustrations with police publicly in the past, he says he believes the officers who continue to work on the case are dedicated to solving it.

“I keep looking forward. I look forward to the day Saanich announces an arrest’s been made in the Lindsay Buziak murder. That’s all I can look forward to. That day is coming,” Jeff says. “I think the reality of it is we have to look at this and say, ‘Five years, it’s not solved. What’s wrong? What’s going on?’”

Saanich police Insp. Scott Green says the murder continues to remain a priority.

“We have investigators assigned to the file that follow up on any and all information we receive.  Like many investigations, it is imperative that we receive information from persons who may have knowledge of the crime, directly or indirectly,” Green says.

In addition to the walk in memory of Lindsay, there will be a night to remember event at Glo Restaurant (104-2940 Jutland Rd.) at 7 p.m. on Saturday. Proceeds from tickets ($10) and a silent auction will be donated to the Cridge Transition House for Women.

“I really love my daughter, and I really think it’s wrong what happened to her,” Jeff says. “And I truly believe that that crime perpetrated against her should’ve been solved a long time ago.”
