Lindsay Elizabeth Buziak

File Number: 104200064

Victoria, British Columbia - Born on November 2, 1983 to Jeff Buziak and Evelyn Buziak, Lindsay Elizabeth Buziak, a Canadian real estate agent was mysteriously murdered on a property viewing in Saanich, a suburb of Victoria, on February 2, 2008.

She had one sister, Sara. In 2008, Lindsay, 24, was an ambitious Victoria estate agent who had made a promising start to her career and was described by her family, friends and colleagues as being popular and caring. Her boyfriend, Jason Zailo, is part of a prominent and wealthy family that owns a successful real estate business.

In late January 2008, Lindsay Buziak received a mysterious call from a woman who told her that she and her husband were looking urgently for a home to buy, with a budget of $1 million. According to Lindsay, the caller had a foreign accent that sounded "a bit Spanish but not really." Lindsay believed that the caller could have been faking an accent in order to conceal her identity. Unnerved by the nature of the call, Lindsay asked the caller how she had got her personal cell phone number, as she was a relatively junior employee. The caller said that a previous client of Lindsay's had passed it on to her.

Lindsay told her boyfriend, Jason Zailo, and her father, Jeff Buziak, about the call and revealed her concerns. Jason encouraged Lindsay to take on the client because of the high commission she would get from the sale, and to reassure her, Jason offered to be outside the property in his car in case anything went wrong. Lindsay found a suitable property and made an appointment with the client to view it at 5:30 p.m. on Saturday, February 2, 2008.

That day, Lindsay and Jason ate a late lunch at a restaurant, paying the bill at 4:24 p.m. They left separately in their own vehicles. It is believed that Lindsay went home to change clothes first before the viewing.

Despite the client telling Lindsay that she would come alone, a couple turned up for the viewing. At 5:30 p.m., two witnesses saw a Caucasian man with dark hair and a blonde-haired woman aged between 35 and 45 wearing a distinctively patterned dress. The witnesses then saw Lindsay shake hands with the couple, and from the body language of their greeting it appeared that she had never met them before. The three of them then entered the house.

No Exit Street

Jason parked outside the property for about 10 minutes. He then decided to drive back out to Torquay Drive and park there, as he did not want to be "a nosey, interfering boyfriend". After waiting another 10 minutes parked on Torquay Drive, the street on which the house is located, De Sousa Place, is a small cul-de-sac (No Exit) road containing four houses. Number 1702 is at the outer end of the cul-de-sac on the intersection of De Sousa Place and a main thoroughfare, Torquay Drive., he texted Lindsay to ask if she was OK. She never replied.

Lindsay was found lying in a pool of blood in the master bedroom. She was pronounced dead when the paramedics arrived. She had been stabbed multiple times. There were no defensive wounds, indicating that she had probably been initially stabbed from behind and had no inkling of what was about to happen. None of Lindsay's possessions had been stolen and she had not been sexually assaulted.

The identities of the purported clients to whom she was showing the property and who are the prime suspects in her murder remain unknown. As of 2020, her murder remains unsolved.

Bud Paul

File Number: 104200158

RCMP are seeking information regarding the murder of 56-year-old Bud Paul, who was last seen on August 1, 2020, at the MLCC store in Neepawa, Manitoba.

On August 11, 2020, the body of Paul was discovered near Roseau River First Nation.

Paul was last seen in the company of two individuals and may have traveled with these individuals from Neepawa to Dauphin in his red Chevrolet Trax with Manitoba license plate KHE 314.

RCMP are requesting any information regarding the whereabouts of Paul as well as the two people pictured below between August 1, 2020 and August 11, 2020.

Police are also interested in information anyone may have regarding Paul's vehicle between those dates.

A vehicle was later found destroyed near Polo Park mall in Winnipeg.

Female suspect

Police published an image of a woman they hope to speak with, saying they believe she and another man jumped in a taxi after abandoning the vehicle.

The stepdaughter of Bud Paul wants whoever is responsible for his death brought to justice.

"What happened to him? How did this happen?" are a couple of questions that ran through Sabrina Clarke's mind when she found out Wednesday Bud Paul's death is now being investigated as a homicide.

"We just want answers."

Officers said Paul worked for a furniture company in Winnipeg where Clarke said her stepdad was well-liked.

"That's where he met my mom," said Clarke, noting Paul had been living on his own since her mom died four years ago.

Clarke, who now lives in Alberta, said while they haven't seen each other much in recent years due to distance Paul was "Grandpa Bud" to her children.

"He was a very mild-mannered, sweet man," said Clarke. "He had a really big heart. He was funny."

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call the RCMP Major Crime Unit at 431-489-8551 or Crime Stoppers.
