Justice for Lindsay...?

Years after they were committed, two high profile crimes in Greater Victoria remain unsolved to this day. One is the disappearance of four-year-old Michael Dunahee in March of 1991. The other is the murder of Lindsay Buziak in February of 2008.

Lindsay Buziak was an attractive 24-year-old real estate agent who was lured to a house under the pretext of showing a Saanich house to potential purchasers. While in the house with two strangers she was viciously stabbed to death. Her boyfriend at the time discovered her body shortly after her estimated time of death. There was no sign of the couple - a man and a woman - who had met Lindsay at the house according to witnesses.

Jeff Buziak, Lindsay's father, has been leading a relentless crusade over the years to have his daughter's murder solved. Every year in early February, he leads a march through Saanich to remind citizens that justice has yet to be served in this case. Relations between him and the local police have been strained. He claims they have been too slow to solve the case and too slow to release details of what they know.

Most curious was the fact that the police released major details of the crime one year after the murder in an effort to attract tips. Many people wondered about the wisdom of waiting a year after the crime when potential witnesses might have forgotten details, or moved away from the area.

To this day, the Saanich police continue to be strangely silent on the case although they insist that it is still active. They do believe that the killing was a contract job, but beyond that they don't have much to say.
