Realtor’s homicide remains unsolved after 8 years

by Ephraim Vecina08 Feb 2016
After 8 years of investigation, questions about the murder of realtor Lindsay Buziak continue to linger.
Buziak, then 24, was found dead of stabbing in an upstairs bedroom of a house in De Sousa Place on February 2, 2008. However, even with the release of cartographic sketches of the probable murderers several years ago, the Saanich Police seem to be nowhere near resolving the increasingly cold case.
“Our investigators are still following up on leads – we’re hopeful there is more information that will hopefully break this case. I can’t say where we’re at with the investigation I can just say it is active at this time,” Sergeant Steve Eassie told CHEK.
Police officials released descriptions of the two suspects—a woman garbed in red, white, and black designer apparel, and a tall well-dressed man—a year after the murder.
Investigators said that the duo led Buziak to the De Sousa Place house after telling her of their supposed interest in purchasing the home. The possible motive for the crime remains undetermined.
Buziak’s then-boyfriend Jason Zailo was initially questioned and incarcerated as a suspect, but was subsequently released after police found no evidence linking him to the murder. Zailo aided investigators by re-enacting the night he found Buziak’s body.
Early police reports described possible links between the crime and a major drug bust in Calgary around 11 days before Buziak’s death, a theory which was subsequently scrapped.
