WATCH: Dad of murdered Saanich real estate agent Lindsay Buziak says he knows who killed his daughter and the alleged killers have threatened him
It was eight years ago today real estate agent Lindsay Buziak was brutally murdered.
“I’m dark today,” says Jeff Buziak, Lindsay’s dad. “It’s a tough day.”
Marking the eighth anniversary of his daughter’s horrific murder with an annual ‘Walk for Justice’ on Tuesday, Jeff Buziak decided to wear a noose around his neck.
“This is me, I’m being hung,” the emotional father says. “Eight years I’ve been in prison while the killers of my daughter walk around the streets of this community.”
Real Estate agent Lindsay Buziak was brutally murdered on February 2nd, 2008.
Police believe the 24-year-old was lured to a Saanich home by what she thought were prospective buyers and then stabbed more than 40 times. But despite a massive investigation, the case remains unsolved.
“The whole community is affected by this murder,” says walk participant Sylvia Walsh. “The fact that it has not been solved yet it just leaves people uneasy.”
“We like to think we live in a place where these kind of acts go punished,” adds Saanich Mayor Richard Atwell, who also took part in the walk. “It’s really unfortunate that we’re at this stage after eight years and we’re still looking for justice for Lindsay Buziak.”
Buziak Bombshell: Victim’s father says he knows who killed his daughter
But in a stunning development, Jeff Buziak claims he not only knows who killed his daughter — he’s says he was threatened by them this week.
“Two days ago I was confronted by one of the people involved in Lindsay’s murder,” Buziak alleges. “They bullied me, intimidated me, called me down, used profanity, threatened me with physical violence and the police were called.”
Buziak says there was also an incident at the Victoria Courthouse on Monday involving a drug dealer with a long and violent criminal record who he says knows who killed his daughter.
“It was a group of local thugs that decided they want to put out a message for people who squawk on them so they singled out my daughter and slaughtered her,” Buziak says.
Saanich Police won’t comment on whether the people Buziak thinks killed his daughter are suspects or persons of interest. The investigation is still an active one and police say they’re doing everything they can to bring the killers to justice.
“It’s not just a case of running around and grabbing people we think are responsible,” explains Staff Sgt. Chris Horsley, the lead investigator on the Buziak file. “It’s a case of seeing this case through all the way to the finish line.”
As for Jeff Buziak, despite all the time that’s passed, he’s not giving up hope Lindsay’s killers will be arrested.
“It’s going to happen, there’s no doubt in my mind” Buziak says. “It’s the only thing that keeps me alive.”
