Lindsay Elizabeth Buziak

File Number: 104200064

Lindsay Elizabeth Buziak was a Canadian real estate agent who was murdered on a property viewing in Saanich, a suburb of Victoria, British Columbia, on February 2, 2008.

She was born on November 2, 1983 to Jeff Buziak and Evelyn Buziak . 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 call from a woman who told Lindsay 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 she could not place, sounding "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 before the viewing.

She 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.

Anyone with information on the case is asked to call Saanich police at 250-475-4321 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).

November 9, 2020 - It's been nearly 12 years since two Indigenous teenagers disappeared from Maniwaki, QC., just outside Kitigan Zibi First Nation.

On September 9, 2008, Maisy Odjick's family went to the Kitigan Zibi Anishinabeg Police Department to report her missing.

On September 10, 2008, Shannon Alexander's father went to the Surete du Quebec de la Vallee de la Gatineau police station to report her missing.

The investigation revealed that the two young women were last seen together at Shannon Alexander's home located in Maniwaki on the morning of September 6, 2008.

Here's a look back at the major developments in the case, so far.

The disappearance - September 2008

- Maisy Odjick, 16, and Shannon Alexander, 17, are last seen in Maniwaki, Que. on Sept. 6, 2008, before heading out for a night of dancing.

- Police publicize their disappearance when the girls do not return to Alexander's home - and her father finds their belongings there the next day.

- Later that month, volunteers comb the riverbanks of the Kitigan Zibi First Nation.

One year later - September 2009

- One year after the Quebec girls vanish, the families say they're heartbroken.

- Maisy Odjick's clothes, her flute, her camera and treasured photos are still where she left them at the home of her grandparents.
