Lindsay Buziak Murder

JUSTICE FOR LINDSAY BUZIAK

LINDSAY BUZIAK MURDER TIMELINE

Timeline of Lindsay’s murder as per Dateline, Inspector Rob McColl and Detective-Sgt. Chris Horsley.   The bulk of the clues came from Jason Zailo himself.

Jason and Lindsay went to Sauce for a late lunch. Lindsay and Jason paid the bill at Sauce at 4:24 pm. Their server knew Lindsay well.   Jason went directly to SHC arriving at 4:29 pm and Lindsay is believed to have gone home to change her clothes.  CO was standing outside by Jason’s vehicle when Jason left the SHC building.  They left SHC together in Jason’s vehicle at 5:30 pm.

Joe DeSousa left the site at approx. 4:30 pm. Other workers left the area at around 5:00 pm.   2 witnesses saw the suspect couple walk into the cul de sac at approximately 5:30 pm. The witnesses saw Lindsay greeting the couple by the back of her car in the driveway as shown on crimestoppers. There were papers on the trunk of Lindsay’s car. The real estate lockbox was accessed at 5:29 pm.   While driving Jason said to Lindsay“I’ll come meet you and I’ll be 10 – 15 minutes or so” and that’s when Lindsay said to Jason…. “okay I’ll see you in abit I gotta go the Mexicans are here”.  Apparently this was Lindsay’s short hand name for her clients. Jason was seen by video surveillance leaving SHC at 5:30.

 5:38 pm Jason sends Lindsay a text “just a couple of minutes away.” That text was never opened by Lindsay. According to Detective Sgt. Horsley: “the last text Jason said was I’m just a couple of minutes away”. That text was never opened by Lindsay.  Dateline said this was Jason’s final text. (how could this be Jason’s final text when Jason stated on Dateline that when he was parked on Torquay he sent Lindsay a text that said “are you okay” (prior to his 6:05 pm 911 call)……..Jason received no response.  So which text was the last one……..the one at 5:38 pm as per Det-Sgt. Horsley on Dateline OR the text Jason said he sent to Lindsay just prior to his call to 911 at 6:05 pm?  It sounds like Horsley and Dateline support the 5:38 pm text as being the final one.)

5:38 pm to 5:41 pm police believe this is when Lindsay was murdered.

 5:41 pm Lindsay’s blackberry made a phone call out and the SP believe that was the direct result of the attack. It was truly a pocket dial call as her BB was in her pocket.

As per Det-Sgt. Horsley, when Jason and CO drove into the cul de sac at approx. 5:45 pm Jason and CO saw the front door open and the male suspect outside, but only saw the back of him.  Jason parked his vehicle on the opposite side of the road of the house. The rear of the vehicle was facing Torquay and the murder house. They sat there for approx. 10 minutes. Jason then turned around in the cul de sac and goes right onto Torquay. They parked by the house for approx. another 10 minutesJason sent Lindsay a text message “are you okay” and it was not answered.  Both CO and Jason walked up to the front door and found it locked.  Jason called 911 (approx. 6:05 pm).  They both went around to the Torquay side of the house and CO gained entry via the already open patio doors by Jason boosting CO over the patio fence who then opened the front door allowing Jason entry.

When they found Lindsay’s body CO called 911 (6:11 pm) and while on the phone CO could hear sirens coming. The police were there within minutes because they were already enroute after Jason made the first 911 call(6:05 pm).   When police arrived Jason and CO were waving their arms in the upstairs bedroom window. The police went into the home up to the bedroom and immediately took both Jason and CO to the police station separately

The cell phone the couple used to contact Lindsay was purchased late November 2007 at a Vancouver convenience store. The phone was activated late January, 2008 in Vancouver. The phone traveled to the Island 24 hours prior to Lindsay’s murder.

Vancouver is from where the first calls to Lindsay were made, confirmed by hits on cell towers in the city. Police said at least half dozen calls were made to Lindsay and after her murder the cell phone was never used again. They believed the killer(s) knew how to carry out the murder and then cover their tracks.  The expert’s all agreed a significant degree of planning went into this murder. They explored the theory that professionals were hired with specific instructions to express the anger that someone else felt towards Lindsay.  The experts agreed the murder was personal and that somebody close to Lindsay planned it and hired the killer(s).   

Inspector McColl Feb 2, 2011:

“Having had this on our plate (at the time of the broadcast) for more than two years, we had plenty of time to develop theories, look at them closely and think outside of the box,” McColl said, noting that police AGREE with the Dateline investigators’ conclusion that Buziak was an innocent party, and her murder was a TARGETED hit arranged by someone CLOSE to her.  Saanich police have narrowed down the investigation to “three or four” working theories.  McColl stated on Dateline it’s possible one of the people who went into that house was also the MASTERMIND behind Lindsay’s murder.

“It’s not cool to tell on your friends, it’s not cool to rat people out … Many times in a homicide investigation you can get past that because it’s also not cool to kill people,” he said. “There should be some assurance to anyone that is considering speaking to the police, that we’re not really interested in the skeletons in your closet. We have the ability to put that aside and focus in on what we’re really interested in, and that is catching these killers.”

Det-Sgt. Horsley:

“There is nothing in her life — and we’ve conducted an extensive background [check] — that would indicate that she was involved in anything criminal, in anything of a domestic violence relationship, and that is the most perplexing thing.”

“It is also possible Buziak’s killers were under the mistaken impression she had revealed information she shouldn’t have, he said, or perhaps that she was somehow connected to a dangerous person without knowing it.”

“You can be a person who just works and minds their own business in Victoria, yet through a very brief network of friends, you could be absolutely connected to people that are involved in very bad things,” Horsley said.”

Sgt. Dean Jantzen:

“This (killing) was very organized,” said Saanich police spokesman Sgt. Dean Jantzen. “There was a lot of planning and effort and forethought. These are the most complex crimes. And this is the most egregious crime and often they can become long-term and complicated. “There are people in the community who are withholding information. We know there is a bit of cone of silence around this.”

    Horrible—as a parent couldn’t imagine what the family is going through— and checking every lead and theory– the bastards that arranged this put a lot of planning and cover up —

    The killers had the means, created the opportunity, and had an unknown motive. Lyndsay said in the conversation with her father that the woman’s voice sounded off or odd. A voice scrambler used? Intentional voice alteration? Perhaps it wasn’t a man and a woman. Perhaps it was two men. One dressed in a loud dress with multi colors to attract attention so any witnesses would describe man woman suspects. Motive is the big problem. Gang initiation? Thrill kill by an actual man and woman like Bernardo Homolka? I hope this is solved so we can all have the answers. I would think there is a large reward being offered but haven’t seen anything in regards to $100,000 or more on the table. SP says they spent millions. Wouldn’t $100,000 or $300,000 possibly produce results and save money?

    Cold case..Just saw on Crime Watch Daily. Police know the disposable phone moved from Vancouver to Victoria day before murder…Pings on cell tower track movement of phones…See what other phones were pinging same towers at same times as track phone (moving with). Might be on this list…Also compare to results of phones leaving the scene and island and pinging same towers in reverse order (assume same mode of transportation departing as arriving) for next day or two or three or more to get matches. Try for matches moving with and try for matches leaving island by same mode…same towers pinged at same rate of movement. Came to island by jet? ferry? private boat from Vancouver harbor? Ping signatures could answer type of transport both ways. Then try get records for type of transport as well. Receipts for ferry? Jet? Too bad I didn’t hear about this when it happened…now evidence collecting may be impossible. I think police aren’t that bright when it comes to complex thinking.

    Realtors always greet and shake hands when meeting clients. A smile, a friendly greeting and eye contact. Did SP swab lyndsay’s right hand for possible DNA from someones sweaty palm?

    Sounds like killers parked on Torquay to not have vehicle seen by neighbors in cul de sac(De Sousa)..leaving residence were supposedly spooked back into house..so they used Torquay side of house to depart and climbed fence to get to vehicle. Boyfriend later moved his car from across from house to likely spot where killers were parked on Torquay.

    That’s my two cents…Hope police can still find evidence to solve this mystery.

    I’m confused on some of the “facts”. How do 2 people who just committed a slash massacre escape unnoticed within that short of time frame? And why would they be so quick to turn around when seeing a car across the street when leaving, but didn’t mind being obviously noticed in the beginning? Also if boyfriend had intended to be there, knowing she is nervous and that he is overprotective, why was he not there on time?

  5. Chris says:

    Okay. Just checked almanac for moon phase for that night. No moon. Sunset at 5:11pm so it is dark by 5:30pm.
    Weather is unknown – if heavy cloud would be very
    dark so spreading papers on car trunk would be
    useless. Flashlight? Street light across from house
    quaint but almost useless. All the re-enactments show
    crime taking place in daylight. Something is way off!

    Im am so sorry for the loss of your daughter.And I pray they find the killers.My heart breaks for you.You seem like a very patinate man.A father who loves his daughter and children with all you have.Godbless you and may The scum that did this to your beautiful young daughter be caught and locked away for life.Rest In Paradise Lyndsay!😢

    How did these killers get to the location for the showing? They would have surely parked their car in front of the property to meet her there. If they left out of the back of the property, how did they get away without the boyfriend seeing them get in the car? They abandoned the car that they arrived in or he didn’t see them pass because of where he was parked? Something about the boyfriend’s story doesn’t add up. You went there because she wanted protection but you don’t protect her? Makes no sense…his texts were also only to give him an alibi. What about her clients who supposedly gave her contact info to the killers? I’m sure the police have looked into how these people knew their names to even trick her..especially since these clients were conveniently out of town when she called to ask them about it. In the whole neighborhood, there were no security cameras? Sadly too many years have passed. I would hope the police had looked at surveillance footage from all nearby gas stations and stores leading up to and after the murder…rental cars…etc…I’m thinking it was someone who knew her client list. Now who would know that? Rival real estate agent? Someone closer to her who knows her client list or had access to it to give a name to the killer for credibility? Either she saw something that she shouldn’t have or her boyfriend and his friends were using her real estate connections to ship drugs to empty houses and they were afraid she knew too much about it. Being that the boyfriend knew she was leaving him, the plan was put into action to get rid of her. The problem is proving it with evidence. I wonder if they ever had him take a lie detector test.

    I’m sad and I wish she had followed her gut instinct.

      You know what alot of what you say makrs sense.I felt that way when they cae out the house and went right back in when seeing him.I would of found that suspicious as well.And wouldnt they be covered in blood?And he didnt see that.Also he knew she was nervous.So why not go to the door asap and see what was going on.Why wait so long.And if these ppl left through the back door ,Im sure the backyard was fenced so they must of climbed over the fence.Hard in a dress!! And his friend goes to the back dor lets him in but he pushes the door he doesnt want to leave prints possibly.And then you would look around the first floor first then check upstairs?Not run straight to the master bedroom.Another thing bothering me he remembers the exact style of the dress.Most men dont really look that closely at a womans dress???I believe you are right about them shipping the drugs to these empty houses.So i would look into pkgs delievered to the houses shed been showing.Her boyfriend knows something for sure!!

  8. 40fitclub says:

    This is obviously masterminded by the boyfriend and his mom. They were using vacant homes to ship drugs. The mom could not chance that Lindsay would leave and expose the drug ring. This explains how the killers knew to say the name of a client that she had. The mom and the boyfriend would both know her contact list. I am concerned as to why the cops did not look more closely at the boyfriend and his family and the mortgage broker business.

    don’t look at the murder. look at the house see who benefits from the death in the house either something they needed access to or if someone benefits by the death I.e. owner under contract. with a sale clause for non sale or potential buyer by action of a reduced sale price. I lean to something there they needed access to and the murder was a secondary action do to the brutality of it to much over kill with out a sexual component. look at the house !!

  11. Todd cox says:

    Has anyone considered previous homeowners using Lindsey to gain access to the house so they could retrieve a stash of cash or drugs hidden in the house?

  12. Her boyfriend and his mother were rumoured to be involved in drug trafficking. When she told him she wanted to break up, she became a liability.

      Strange that everything took at night. February 2 and it is dark. What was the weather like? Raining? Also real estate agents always get to a showing first to turn on the lights and heat prior to any clients arriving. Funny no one saw a person sneaking over a fence in the dark yet can see a blonde(?) woman in a light but colourful (even eye opening) dress. Where was the party? Not in February! Women don’t go to open houses dressed up. Was she wearing heels? Type of coat? Was the man wearing a coat? Type and colour?
      40 stab wounds isn’t a “contract killing” – this was highly personal and could be considered revengeful. The whole time line stinks.
      How did these people find the place in the dark? GPS? Implies upscale car for 2008 perhaps a rental?
      Street lighting (if any) (type?) wouldn’t allow much detail of people’s clothing etc. to be ascertained.

      WHAT was the weather like? Rainy? Snowy? Moonlight? Phase of moon if clear?
