    I just listened on Crime Junkie (via Spotify) about this murder. I’m sorry this had to happen. I’m getting strong feelings certain police people have a hand in the drug cartel and there is a major cover-up. I’m sure it’s been said already and I’ve only read a few comments here so I’m sorry if I’m repeating what others may have said. I hope justice comes and those involved get what they deserve. RIP Lindsay

    The crushing weight of Lindsay’s murder weighs heavily on me daily. 12 years. Unsolved by incompetence! 12 years of nonsense. The insanity of a system that is capable but that has been permeated by people confused, disjointed, organized but disorganized, unmotivated and truly incapable of accomplishing larger tasks and goals beyond their scope and abilities but seek the power and control to just have it and in that process stifle the system and justice so rightly deserved by victims and those suffering as a result of the darkness of humanity. People. Resistance. Ego. Pride. Power. Corruption….. All masking reality. The simplicity of the system, tasks and people’s jobs wasted on confusion, explanation, excuses and the mire of society with people enjoying their comfort on the suffering of others. Too much darkness. People need to stand out for righteousness not vanity and position in life. Take stock. Step up in 2020. Do what is right. Make things happen. Do something other than talk and show. Do your job and more. Be real.
    To Saanich police chief Scott Green, roll up your sleeves and do your job. Yes you pal. You are a public servant sworn by oath to protect the people and uphold justice. Quit hiding and being a pussy. You have been involved with Lindsay’s unsolved murder from the beginning. You were a detective, you were an inspector, you were head of the detective division, you were deputy chief all during the time you and Saanich police fiddled with Lindsay’s murder. It’s been unsolved for twelve years. You are now Chief of police. You are the so-called leader. Roll up your sleeves and lead. Show us your skills for once. Solve Lindsay’s murder with arrests. Yes you…..Scott Green. Do your fucking job! You are failing miserably right now and have been for 12 years in every position and promotion/pay raise……and don’t ever try to bully and intimidate me again!

      After listening to a podcast about Lindsay’s case, I started doing some digging and found some information that I find very interesting. I may be completely off, but I feel as tho I have a theory of what may have happened. I am in no way a trained investigator I just don’t know what to do with this information that I’ve found.

    • Svetlana says:

      I think news media should have done more on this murder. I don’t believe they reported much on it. I only heard about this tragedy this year and it was through the internet MSN newsfeed, not even on the regular TV news stations like CBC or CTV.

      I don’t know what they’re waiting for. They have all the evidence to make charges. Even imbeciles can see who did it.

      I would have liked to see the other entries in Lindsay’s journal. If it’s in police possession, couldn’t Lindsay’s family get a copy of the entire journal as a memento? Maybe there is something in there that has meaning to the family that might provide clues only her family could understand. It almost appeared as though Lindsay used the day timer booklet as more of a note pad than a calendar to follow. I would like to hear more about what her life was like outside of Jason and her work. Was she taking any classes after work at the time of her murder or even the previous year? What were her goals outside of getting away from Jason and her real estate career? Did she ultimately want to work in family business or would she have been content working on her own as a broker? Was she thinking about relocating herself (to another country like her sister?) or did she love Victoria B.C. so much that she would stay forever even if she had to face down SZ and JZ for the rest of her life? I just think that no one should be cleared as a suspect if there has never really been a named suspect. Everyone who has ever been interviewed and “cleared” should realize that charges can still be filed against them at any time until the case is solved. Maybe that reality check would prompt someone (SZ, JZ?) who is close lipped into talking. If I were the local Saanich police, I would file charges against Jason post haste for disturbing crime scene evidence. Here is another issue- I would look into any purchases for parts and supplies that were made by DeSouza after Lindsays murder for the home at 1702. Did he replace a cabinet? A closet door? It’s all in his tax records. The police can easily access those and I think the public can to. Or someone (a private investigator?) can disguise themselves as DeSouza and request a copy of his 2008 taxes from the Canadian tax man.

    – SZ or PB may have been the High Noon informant (s). At the time of Lindsay’s murder, Shirley was also responsible for selling million-dollar homes- a junior agent like Lindsay would not get a call for that unless it was a referral. So the killers (if hired assassins) were told to “make sure that they asked for a million-dollar home” in order to get Shirley who at that time was the Million Dollar listing agent at that brokerage . By some flyer mix up, they got Lindsay instead.
    – Why were the killers saying they were relocating from Vancouver to Saanich, Victoria when it may be a long shot but entirely possible that you could commute there for work while you were still looking for a home?
    – Let’s say the murders were telling the truth about these things: they were a couple from Vancouver. It would have taken them up to 4 hours by ferry, car and foot to go from Vancouver to Saanich, Victoria. They would have made that huge trip earlier in the day Saturday- starting in the morning or no later than noon time, and then arrived on DeSousa at the appointment time. The husband first called and said his wife was sick and could not come. But then when they showed up to meet Lindsay, they were both there. We were told that when SZ showed up later at the crime scene she was not wearing shoes. Is it reasonable to believe that a person who was feeling under the weather would not go somewhere without their shoes? The other theory is that this couple, who killed Lindsay, came into town from Vancouver the night before and stayed at a hotel nearby DeSousa place.
    – If you take a ferry from Vancouver to Nanaimo, you can also take your car for $90. Once you are in Nanaimo it takes an hour and a half by car to get to Victoria. If you are a couple and Lindsay’s murders coming from Vancouver, you would park that same car a block or two away from the crime scene and walk the rest of the way.
    – Killer/ Murder of Lindsay IS the unreachable referral. Does this man or woman have a spouse? Where are they from? What do they do for work? Why were they unreachable the week of Lindsay’s murder? Lindsay asked the caller how they got her information, the caller with the accent said from “______” who is the unreachable referral.
    – Jason: errands, papers, hockey game. Doesn’t sound as if he planned to be with Lindsay at all that night even though it was her friend Andrea’s birthday. This does not make much sense given that he seems to have been at every other party with Lindsay according to the photos on line.
    – January was when high noon went down it was only a few weeks before Lindsay was murdered
    – In a recent previous transaction, Jason was the seller’s agent (and the mortgage broker?) Lindsay was the buyer’s representative. Let’s say either the seller or the buyers of this specific transaction were the murderers. What would the sellers gain by killing the buyer’s agent? What would the buyers gain by killing their own agent?
    – Where do news anchors buy their dresses? They all wear very specific style types and designers. I just saw one local female weather journalist wearing a dress eerily like the dress shown in the Lindsay Buziak case. The murderers of Lindsay were a couple from Vancouver. The wife had access to dresses that are typically worn by news anchors now called TV Journalist women. The wife/ murderer of Lindsay may have been a realtor that does a lot of work with female news anchors.
    – Lindsay may have been contacting her ex-boyfriend Matt to warn him about threats coming in from gangsters and or police in Victoria who were involved in the High Noon bust- either that he- Matt- would get busted right along with those folks or that he needed to watch out for possible retaliation after the bust took place. What Lindsay might have seen then that she should not have seen were photos of those people who were going to get busted. The only way she would have seen those photos was through Shirley and her then boyfriend -former Saanich cop – Paul Bergshoeff (sp?)
    – BTW: One question- isn’t Ziggys Lawyer Brad Hickford also Jason Zailos Mortgage broker / boss? I saw that Jason and Ziggy had the same lawyer? Brad? Does Brad Hickford own a mortgage lending company? That would have been a possible conflict of interest had Ziggy wanted to sue Jasons mom (his landlord) for any reason.

    • Svetlana says:

      Yes strange that he was not to attend the birthday party with Lindsay that night, because he had “other” plans to determine the fate of poor Lindsay.

      I saw that weather girl wearing the dress you are talking about but it and associating the murderer with news anchor women have nothing to do with Lindsay’s murder.

      The dress is passé, means nothing. Dresses like that, with big floral prints, blocked patterns, are mass produced in China and distributed throughout the world and are popular. The murderer shred her dress to pieces or threw it out the same night.

      But if someone who recalls any of their friends, family or acquaintances having such a dress around the time or could be an older dress from another year, then they should call the police or contact Jeff.

  5. Elizabeth says:

    My one question is: when Jason came through the front door, why did he know to go upstairs, first? Rather than search the main floor?
    I apologize if this had already been addressed. …delete, if so.

    • Eunoia says:

      I heard about the murder of Lindsay through a podcast called Crime Junkies, what about you? I personally do not know the answer to your question but I do not recall hearing or reading that Jason looked upstairs first. Could you share with us the source of your statement?

      • Justice says:

        There is a video of Jason showing the police detectives what he did on the night of Lindsay’s murder at the crime scene house. That is what he tells and shows police himself.

  6. Carlene Wynn says:

    First, I am just heartbroken for this family. Please know that you are doing exactly what I would do if my child had been murdered. God-speed Lindsay. This may have been asked so I apologize in advance if it is a redundant question- Did Jason not find it odd that there was no vehicle other than Lindsay’s at this showing? I would have confronted the couple immediately had I observed them exiting the front door without a vehicle. That to me is a huge red flag. Does anyone know what his response to that question was as I am certain it had to have been asked?

  7. Robin says:

    These are comments I took from another site just to show how many people find the Zailo’s behaviour incongruent. Funny how so many people get the same gut instinct, that is very telling IMO.

    1. Were they made aware in their real estate classes the dangers of meeting unfamiliar people alone without having confirmed their identification? Was Jason’s mother aware of the situation? As a seasoned realtor, alarm bells should have went off in her head. I just find it strange that she ended up their alone after he promised he’d come with her.

    2. after he also encouraged her to ignore her instincts and go for the big commission.

    3. drugs have become the go-to conclusion for killings that seem totally out of the blue, whether or not it makes any sense at all. i truly doubt lindsay was killed over anything drug-related.

    my gut says jason’s mom is AWFULLY suspicious.

    4. The murder was set up with obvious criminal sophistication. They used a burner phone, they parked their car where it was not visible from the front of the house, and they had apparently planned an escape route. This doesn’t mean they were some kind of “hit team”, only that it was well planned.

    5. I just listened to the podcast about this case that covered a lot of events from the approximate year before the murder. I’d never heard some of the details released in that podcast, such as, if I’m understanding correctly, that Sheryl Zailo bought a home for Jason and Lindsay relatively early in their relationship. A very upscale home, which she then spent a small fortune renovating. Then Lindsay broke up with Jason. Then they decided to try again, and were purchased a condo by Sheryl. Then Jason overhears Lindsay telling Nikki that she’s outta there as soon as all their real estate deals are cleared, and they RUN from the house?! In a normal relationship that would have resulted in an argument and usually a breakup, not bolting out the door and then NEVER discussing it.

    Now my theory borrows a bit from all theories Ive seen so far, as well as some personal experiences when dating spoiled mama’s boy types.

    So imagine Sheryl the first few months of the relationship between Jason and Lindsay: you see your son smitten with a beautiful young real estate agent who has the potential to go far under the right guidance. Sheryl probably helped her along with her career, more than likely giving her an advantage over other fresh faces on the scene: lobbing her easy sales, connecting her with the right people, etc. She goes and buys them their “first home” and spends a fortune renovating it, just for Lindsay to decide she wasn’t happy and missed her ex.

    Then, if I’m understanding correctly, they get back together and Sheryl then buys a condo for them. Doesn’t take long before Lindsay is caught by Jason telling her friend that she is leaving again as soon as all their deals go through. Then Jason pretends that never happened and whisks her away on a family trip. Suddenly Lindsay is placated and everything is fine. Until she is murdered. I really feel as though maybe Sheryl was starting to become a bit resentful, she had put all this money into the relationship between Jason and Lindsay, only for Lindsay to be fickle about it and waffle back and forth between wanting to be with him. Not that I think this is at ALL justification for murder; people in their early 20s are supposed to be fickle in love. But maybe at some point in the relationship Jason tried to impress Lindsay with his bad boy street cred and opened his mouth about some of the things he and his family are capable of doing under the guise of a real estate business.

    I think that over time Sheryl became very critical of Lindsay as Jason’s choice of partner and had concerns about how much Jason was telling her. I think she could see what Jason couldn’t: dude, she’s just not that into you. I think she was getting fed up with playing happy families with a girl who she knew was not going to be with her son for the long term. And I think Lindsay just became a thorn in her side, she went from being pliable and an asset to whatever they have going on, to a liability, and Sheryl wanted her gone. I don’t think it was related to one bust or one incident of criminality, I think the dynamics of the year before have so much to do with this yet there is so little about that available online.

    6. WOW!!! After reading your hypothesis, I think you might have something. I just saw the Dateline episode on this case. It’s very disturbing and haunting. Being a retired psych RN, I found Sheryl’s on-camera behavior and affect to be a bit “off”. Sheryl appeared to be placing suspicion on the ex-boyfriend in her Dateline interview. Thank you for your most insightful information and thoughts on this. You should contact Jeff Buziak with your thoughts.

    7. I 100% agree with your theory as well, as a fellow woman who has dated spoiled, mama’s boy types. Of course it is all speculation, but like you say, the relationship between Lindsay and Sheryl is something you can’t google or research. Grade A hypothesis, and I honestly believe that’s what happened.

    8. Casefile has a pretty in depth episode on Lindsay. Personally I kind of think the mom and boyfriend were in it together.

    9. Also–the significance of mutilating the breast implants in a crime that is not considered to be sexual in nature. Why would someone painstakingly mutilate breast implants unless possibly they felt as though they had paid for them…

    10. Doesn’t her boyfriend keep some not very pleasant company? His behaviour is pretty strange-eager for her to go despite her reservations, decides to go & pick up somebody else making himself late, then when they arrive they see two people leaving the property who then hurry back inside but instead of knocking on the door decide to drive off after 10 minutes & then waited another 10 before going back. Doesn’t add up.

    11. Money Laundering.. she knew too much. The matriarch didn’t want her to destroy her house of cards. My opinion. The couple I don’t believe killed her there is no proof of that I think they were just two people commissioned.. to be part of this elaborate plan , show up act like a couple wanting to buy a property… go in the home.. up the stairs where the MURDERER was waiting. This was a personal Kill planned hit people don’t stab someone 40 x. The man could have put her in a choke hold and strangled her no blood in and out get paid. The person wielding the knife wanted her dead and there was a personal reason for it. I believe she was ” silenced”. She had told her father she had ” seen” something she shouldn’t have. Using real estate to clean drug money very common especially at the time 10 yrs ago in Victoria. I think the cops don’t have to look that far for the people involved. The couple the dress the burner phone travelling from Vancouver all calculated to distract away from the actual murderer. That is what I think based on all the evidence released thus far.

    12. What’s the connection between the boyfriend, the mother and known drug dealers? Just putting it out there…

    • see closely says:

      Since you don’t really know who murderer/s are, you can’t infer any connection.That is a fact Robin.

      • Just A Canadian Citizen says:

        That might be but there is so much “circumstantial evidence” that there really isn’t much room to dispute. The writing is on the wall just the SPD are not smart enough or strong enough to deal with it. Total corruption.

    • Svetlana says:

      They were looking for a housekeeper area. For me, this strikes as old school term like housewife. So with that I picture an older woman to use that term.

    • Wyatt says:

      Year 12 on the horizon! I do not understand how the good people of this country, who possess the power and authority to clean up and clean out the Satanic police have not stepped up? What exactly are these powerful reps afraid of? Are they part ‘n parcel of the big corruption? Have they exercised willful blindness? Do they fear their integrity and conduct (or lack thereof) will be scrutinized? Where are your balls ⚽️ political leaders? Who is protecting the public? Where is the voice for the dead and murdered? Where is the confidence and trust from the community? CLEAN OUT THE DIRTY PIGS OF SAANICH POLICE! We need justice to prevail! ⚖️
