    Idea. My husband was homebuilder. Selling spec homes is a priority. Could this be a revenge killing against the homebuilder? Was he dealing in drugs and owed money to the wrong people? A horrible murder in a spec home is going to deplete it’s value and leave the builder in a losing position.

    • Lillian says:

      Yeah…. No. That’s not an MO in this case. Lindsay’s execution was a “personal” one not a revengeful/real estate one. There is absolutely no connection to killing Lindsay (she would be an unknown in your scenario) and an alleged revenge on DeSousa. Besides, Desousa went on the live in the murder mansion as he clearly could not sell it but had no issue to living in it himself and family.

    Why she didn’t have shoes on her feet? Is this A normal behaviour for a real estate agent to take off your shoes while showing A house to A potential buyer?

    • Svetlana says:

      I don’t know if she took them off or if they were planted there by the criminals, and probably doesn’t mean much if it doesn’t have the criminals DNA on it, but my question is why didn’t the police arrest the criminals who were right under their noses and still are! Instead, they let them live as free as birds going on with their merry lives.

    Why would Jason call his mother Shirley after he and Oatman approached the house for a code for a lock box containing the key to the house and/or the code for the garage door instead of just scaling the patio fence and enter through the opened patio door that was conveniently left open for Him to notice and hoist Oatman over and easier yet, why didn’t Jason and Oatman just go through the opening in the patio fence that was prepared by Joe desousa for Shirley and Bergshoeff to Exit through so they could step out onto the sidewalk to walk to the driveway to portray the “couple.” If the opened patio door was obvious to Jason, surely the opening in the patio fence would have been obvious to him also ! Also, why would Jason call his Mother for codes when he could have easily called Dicastri and/or Lidstone for the codes. Jason’s first 10 minute waiting game inside the culdesac was to keep his eyes on that garage door to open for his mother and her accomplices to leave. Jason’s second 10 minute waiting game on Torquay drive was to give his mother time to reach her pre-planned destination that was 10 minutes or less away. Jason did not call his mother for “codes”, Jason called his mother to make certain that she arrived at her place of destination before he called the police. Jason had to be at the front door because upon opening the front door the upstairs staircase is there upon entering the front door to the house. So why did Jason hoist Cohen Oatman over the patio fence to enter the house through the opened patio door and he enter through the front door only to dart past Oatman directly up the stairs to where his mother and there accomplices laid Lindsay in the upstairs bedroom ? This was done before Oatman and the police could view the STAGED CRIME SCENE so that Jason could CONTAMINATE the STAGED SCENE !!!

      Any good and efficient copper (detective) would have been suspicious from the get-go. As one looks back at all the fake and fabricated information and evidence that was staring the cops right in the face it would have put a good copper on heightened alert. But because Horsefly and his dirty snakes were thinking they could fool Joe Public with their ridiculous “excuses” for not having solved this execution only adds insult to our intelligence. Horsefly and his lying, dirty cohorts, are the stupid ones. They’re lack of intelligence and experience masked by their corruption not only demonstrates their incompetence and blatant arrogance it leaves the Saanich PD in a very unfavourable and distrustful status. I don’t think that detachment could EVER recover from that tarnish! Time to dismantle and amalgamate with VPD at least we might have a chance to get this murder solved and oust all those dirty pigs 🐷🐷🐷

      • ConnectTheDots says:

        The SPD will resist that at every turn but hopefully they won’t be able to hold out for much longer. If that does happen we need to let other police departments know about our concerns and put pressure on them to look into the unsolved murder of Lindsay.

    • Svetlana says:

      What bugs me is how so sure they were that Cohen would do exactly what Jason says. What if he were to say to Jason, no I will not go over the fence or no I cannot wait any longer in the car and who’s to stop him from getting out of the car at any given moment? How sure was JZ that Cohen is not seeing what he is seeing – I mean he was right there next to him!

      How was that man really involved in this? Or was he just playing dumb but sensed something was up?

      • Wyatt says:

        Cohen is a follower. Clearly intimidated by the Zailos as his livelyhood was dependent on their joint real estate interests and employment. If Zailos told him to jump off a bridge? …. Well the result is obvious. Cohen is a weak, feeble and cowardice person, cause he is definitely no MAN! If the “right” thing bit him in his arse he still wouldn’t do the “right” thing.

      • ConnectTheDots says:

        Apparently Cohen said no to Jason’s invitation at first but gave in after Jason persisted. Why would he get out of the car? There was no reason for him to do that and therefore not a concern. If your friend was suddenly very concerned about his girlfriend and asked you to hop a fence and see if they could get in the back door 99% percent of able bodied people would readily do that. I don’t see any reason for concern that Cohen wouldn’t play along with what Jason was asking him to do. I don’t think he knew anything other than Jason was acting odd. I think he 100% knows now that he was duped into playing that role. Hence the cushy, lucrative, very close to the Zailo’s jobs that came his way after the murder. Does anyone know what Cohen was doing for employment just before the murder?

        • Svetlana says:

          Where did that info come from – about Cohen being persisted?

          • ConnectTheDots says:

            Early on on this website someone posted that Jason had called Cohen a few times that day, almost like their original alibi had backed out and they needed someone at the last minute. They said that Cohen had plans with his wife that evening and was perplexed as to why this acquaintance of his would be hounding him to go for a meal with him. He and his wife finally bowed to pressure and Cohen agreed to go for dinner with Jason. They also said that Cohen was severely spooked by what had happened and I would say realizing the role he had played in it and the danger it put him and his family in. I wonder if Cohen and his wife are still together?

      • ConnectTheDots says:

        I think he parked in such a way as to obstruct the view for Cohen. He could have easily distracted him if he started to swivel his head and was in any danger of seeing something he was not intended to see.

      • Svetlana says:

        Maybe so (that he’s feeble minded, etc. and I believe was married at the time so looked like a family man) but doesn’t exclude him from being a criminal, in my view.

        sIt’s very bothersome to me that Jason knowing that his girlfriend is going to get murdered and there he is bringing along a “friend”. It does not make sense. It looks too rehearsed. And I think the two stories when interviewed as per police matched. It would be interesting to see what they both said individually at the police interview. Did they only get interviewed once or more times? From what I see, I don’t think the police did what they had to do.

        Did Lindsay stumble upon something that they were up to which had them rolling in the dough? Some kind of scam which if ever found out would have put them all in deep trouble and ruin their reputation?

        How much does Jason’s EX-girlfriend (another realtor) know about his goings on?

        • ConnectTheDots says:

          Who is Jason’s ex girlfriend? Current girlfriend?

          • A buddy who knows says:

            Current girlfriend is Ola Nowak.
            She is engaged to the criminal

            • Wyatt says:

              Ola Nowak…..
              Accounting Payroll Manager at MMG…
              AND …
              Jason Zailo…..
              Mortgage Expert at DLC – Modern Mortgage Group (MMG)
              Interesting…. A “payroll” manager at the identical employer as Jason. Coincidence? Highly unlikely. She must be valuable in cooking the books for all that drug money/laundering that is required. I guess the inept Horsefly hasn’t figured that out yet.
              Wonder if she’s aware of marrying a cold blooded killer?

            • A former buddy says:

              And she works at the mortgage company the conspirator runs. You can only work there if you have dirty little secrets to hide too.
              Honest, good people need not apply.

              • ConnectTheDots says:

                Thank you for that info. I’m glad to see that there are some people from their community who have a conscience and are paying attention to the efforts to get justice for Lindsay. Any and all help is greatly appreciated.

          • PandaBear says:

            The ex is Jasmine Parsons. And her brother and late father were realtors working for Camosun.

          • Svetlana says:

            Who cares about current girlfriend. She probably wasn’t around in 2008. Would prefer to know who his lover was right after the murder.

        • Rosanne says:

          I had this thought too. When I heard Cohen went from Mortgage Broker to Casino manager, the connections both occupations have in the news with money laundering made me wonder if he could have been “working” that night to protect his livelihood. The coroner’s time of death has him in the area. Driving up with Jason would put Lindsay at ease to let him have a quick look at the house. She may have even known him. The dress witnesses could have been planted It would sure tighten the circle of involved. Someone has said Cohen was scared silent, I believe it was “threatened” the word used. The other conclusion I keep conflicting this theory with is this was so planned that Jason’s alibi would have been picked carefully to be squeaky clean.

    • ConnectTheDots says:

      I agree. I think he called his mom to make sure that she had made it to her safe house that was in the neighborhood within walking distance which they really didn’t think through how odd it would look with her showing up on foot. Possibly at Terry Shein’s house or one of the Lum sisters.

      • ConnectTheDots says:

        Jason had to be sure that Cohen wasn’t going to bump into anyone. Ryan was probably also in the neighborhood possibly at the same house.

      • BR says:

        Right? Why is that not odd behavior and sternly investigated of where she was coming from on foot to that house, and she didn’t live in that area????has that ever been explained? That’s so obvious!!!! Who did she leave the crime scene with? How far was her car from the crime scene? If she at a friends house – who is the friend …were they investigated of her storyline of being there and what time?

        So many obvious avenues of what to do or should have been done that it’s sickening to be a bystander knowing a family went through this and not one damn thing is being done.

    • BR says:

      I completely agree! I know I read somewhere the builder did a walk through prior too. He or any of the workers that were there for the other new construction area didn’t see this opening? I’m trying to figure out after seeing the layout of the home where the opening was? Nobody had cameras in 2008 on new construction property? Not out of the norm but if this was a higher end area … no one had cameras facing the street? We had cameras on our home back then. I get they were out of town but there wasn’t a cab or a renter car for them? How did they get there?? Maybe in her final moments that was odd to her in the moment and she didn’t go with her gut but for fucks sake…She thought her so-called boyfriend would be there to safe/help her! They came walking up so this witness that seen this couple and this dress… didn’t see a car? There are no details at all about these witness saying anymore from what I seen at least. No speculation on passing cars they seen at the time, their direction from where they came from? I don’t even believe after seeing this police departments shit show of “leads” that there is even witnesses. Or they are probably staged witnesses too. Has the family even spoke to these witnesses? Was he mortgage broker or real estate broker? Bc real estate broker has access to the codes. I’ve been in both industry but all that non sense to the side as a former hockey player/bigger guy/mommy’s got money – I would kick the damn door down and ask questions/for forgiveness later. It blows my mind that nothing has been done with this case. I am in the US. I can’t believe this hasn’t been solved. We have to fight tooth and nails to prove innocents over suspicion not to prove someone is guilty over the obvious. I also can’t believe people in the community haven’t pushed harder to help make more noise against anyone with their hands dirty. What’s done in the dark does come to light…. They will reap what they sow. Prayers to her family.

      • Svetlana says:

        The conspirators knew very well that there were no cameras. Who would have that knowledge firsthand? We all know…

        At least I think there were no cameras with the information so far, unless police are hiding this too.

        • ConnectTheDots says:

          Very good point. I don’t believe there were security cameras ( a bit odd ) as they had to rely on a passerby who was just going about their business with no real focus on the prospective buyers for a description.

          • ConnectTheDots says:

            I do find it strange that the description of the woman is such a match for Shirley Zailo right down to the distinct dress such as she liked to wear and even the hair style. I think the man’s description could be describing Ryan Zailo. I know, I know, if it was them Lindsay would have recognized them. But what if that was not Lindsay.

    • I💜80s says:

      Everyone, including me, Is so hyperfocused on the dress that the female from the couple that supposedly met Lindsay the night of her murder was wearing. I have now come to understand in focusing on that dress I am overlooking all the clothing that Jason was wearing or not wearing around the time and potentially during her murder. For example it appears in the camera evidence that he is wearing black from head to toe a black hoodie and black jeans. Please correct me if I am wrong. Then my understanding is also that him and CO we’re going to do a pick up hockey game that means he was traveling with a hockey bag and possibly a change of clothing. After he called 911, when he found Lindsay, qI believe he and CO were questioned at the police station, not 1702 DeSousa. He had blood on his clothes because he says he was trying to revive her. Then the next 24 to 48 hours, he’s in blue jeans touring the murder house with a police officer on video interview. In order for the parking lot video camera evidence to be true, Jason would have had to be wearing those clothes to the murder scene and at the police station as there was no time to do the pickup hockey game that night. I also know that a person would have had to have reservations to get time on the ice and that would be difficult if not impossible at the last minute on a Saturdsy night. Up until late that afternoon, CO had not agreed to go to dinner or the pick up game with him. Is all this correct?

    • I💙80s says:

      The same technology listed here was available and active on the day Lindsay was murdered. Why no arrests? Murderers buy things, they take selfies, they share information, they use social media, even and especially in, 2008.

  4. Oliver says:

    It looks like two of Jason Zailo’s close friends are back in the news. Andy Rogers & Bowman Rutledge are the tag-team drug rapists who have been preying on women in Victoria. Back in March when the news first broke Andy was let go from “The Local Pub” where he bartended part-time when he wasn’t selling real estate. He was seen golfing with Jason a few times after the allegations surfaced but not so much since then. Andy was banned from golfing on a few of the exclusive golf courses. It appears many businesses are distancing themselves from these two predators. Andy, Bowman, Chris Schwartz and Ziggy Matheson are the type of men Jason Zailo is drawn to and as we all know people hang around the ones they are most comfortable with.

    Remember, JZ called the police BEFORE he entered the house. He knew that when the door was locked it was the 2nd sign to do the next move – call the police! Didn’t he call his mom to get the lock key although I don’t know if realtors take the key with them when they show houses. Did she whisper something to him about what to do next lest he forgot?
