Investigators with the Saanich Police Department say they have new leads in the unsolved murder case of realtor Lindsay Buziak and are now working with the FBI.
Buziak, 24, was murdered while showing a home located at 1702 De Sousa Place in Saanich on Feb. 2, 2008.
On Sunday night, Saanich PD announced that a task force comprised of new investigators and members of the FBI has been formed and is examining “all possible” suspects. They also said advancements in DNA technology, particularly in the field of genealogy, has generated new leads in the case.
“Investigators are reviewing and retesting evidence, including items from the crime scene as well as digital evidence. Technology not available at the time of the crime has allowed us to develop new investigative leads,” said Const. Markus Anastasiades of the Saanich PD in a video posted to YouTube.
Although the FBI has joined the case, Anastasiades said the RCMP continues to provide support. He also said investigators have already begun interviewing people and are hoping to speak to others with information about the case.
“We believe people familiar with circumstances surrounding this case remain in our community,” Anastasiades said, later adding. “It is not too late to come forward.”

Buziak had been showing the home to two potential buyers — a man and a woman who remain unidentified — when she was fatally stabbed more than 40 times in the upstairs bedroom of the home sometime in the evening hours. Her boyfriend discovered her body inside the vacant home shortly after becoming concerned when he couldn’t reach her and called 911.
No arrests have ever been made in relation to her murder.
Buziak’s case is among the most high-profile unsolved murders in the country and has been featured on a number of major U.S. television shows including Dateline NBC, Dr. Phil and Crime Watch Daily.
