Lindsay Buziak went to a showing at a nearby home. This is the last time anyone has talked to her alive. After finding a way into the home where she went missing, her boyfriend reportedly found her dead body. Someone had stabbed Lindsay over forty times, showing some genuine passion behind the killing.

The murder of Lindsay Buziak is an unsolved case that still considered active over twelve years despite cries from her family and a wide range of media attention.

Who Would Murder Such A Sweet Person?

Lindsey Buziak was a 24-year-old born in Victoria. Her father, Jeff Buziak, is an industrial real estate agent living in Calgery, so Lindsey’s desire for real estate was most-likely picked up from working with her father. At the time of Lindsay’s murder she was a new agent working at Re/Max Camosun.

Though there are many theories surrounding what happened to Lindsay, police have proven none true. What we know is that immediately surrounding the events of Lindsay’s death, several things happened.

The Mysterious Call

First, Lindsay received a call to view a local home in the area. Immediately, something about the call did not seem to feel right and Lindsay said that it almost sounded like the individual who was calling was faking an accent.

Though pranksters were an option, Lindsay must have felt a little worried about the meeting because she asked her boyfriend to attend the showing with her.

Lindsay’s boyfriend, Jason Zailo, had agreed to meet Lindsay with a friend. The two of friends arrived late to the house and Lindsay had already entered.

Zailo reported that he had seen a couple looking out from the doorway, but he nor the friend approached the couple. Instead, there is a trail of text messages and calls with Zailo reportedly asking Lindsay if she was all right.

Lindsay did not respond. Her last message to her boyfriend was that the couple had arrived. Jason Zailo and his friend called police to report that they could not get a hold of Lindsay. They found a way into the house through a back door and began searching. Upstairs, they found Lindsay’s body. A few things stand out about this crime.

First, there is the fact that police only briefly looked at Jason Zailo and his friend as the potential killers.

Lindsay and Jason share a waterfront condo together at 68 Songhees Road in Victoria.

Many think there is something a little strange about the fact that they were meant to be there when the murder occurred and conveniently showed up after. Others find it odd that they did not approach the couple upon seeing them, particularly since they knew of Lindsay’s situation. Still, police immediately cleared them and began their investigation.

The results of the police investigation raised more questions than answers. The crime scene of the killing was shockingly perfect by police standards. Every element surrounding the murder seemed perfectly staged. This kind of premeditated killing happens, but these killers went to some extreme lengths to make sure they got away with it.

Police later discovered the phone used to make the call to Lindsay to set up the meeting was a burner phone. The investigation proved that Lindsay was undoubtedly lured to the home where she would be killed, and planning and effort even convinced the local police that someone might have hired a contracted killer to end Lindsay’s life. The question is: who did it?

A Drug Hit

In December of 2007 Lindsay visited her father in Calgary and while there she called an old friend (still unknown). Some sources claim the friend she called was local drug runner Erickson Lopez Delacazar, who was arrested in late January for the trafficking of 2.5 million dollars worth of Cocaine.

Ousting the Sinaloa Cartel

Garry Rogers, a retired Royal Canadian Detective, claims on his blog that Lindsay’s murder was carried out by a Mexican brother and sister who works with the Sinaloa Cartel. And although Rogers never named the brother and sister duo, they are listed on another website.

I can’t imagine who would want such a sweet girl dead, but Lindsay’s family has their own suspicions. According to her father, Jeff Buziak, Lindsay was breaking up with Jason Zailo.

Worse, Lindsay worked for Jason’s mother and had plans to leave the real estate agency and pursue another avenue. Many people speculate that the local police dropped the ball on Lindsay’s murder, but to this day, no one has been charged for the brutally planned murder of this Lindsay Buziak.

  • In my opinion, even if Lindsey DID see something she should have not have, and dropped a dime, I doubt the police would have been able to act on it so quickly, they often rightfully take their time and do a little investigation before acting.
    The F.B.I might be involved just to assist in the investigation ,with them being the elite in crime scene investigations /analysis. I do not feel at this point the public needs to know the results of the autopsy / number of cuts, these facts are often with held to separate random confessors with legitimate suspects. I feel the investigator at the end is probably correct in his analysis. He probably has a excellent grasp on what happened. But like so many cases, it is not what you know, but specifically what you can prove.

  • The boyfriend and mum were involved as they tried to drop her in for wanting to leave her. She probably saw something and some how he knew, wrong place wrong time they thought she was the police insider. It was a drug hit… was she framed by her boyfriend

  • I have heard this case covered before, you covered it the best. Thank you for being so thorough. I hope this case is solved.
