March 3 is a date that haunts friends and family of Bree Lozano.
“It’s been a year since we found out she’s been murdered, that she died. And there still is no justice,” said Jennifer Davies, Lozano’s friend.
The 47-year-old mother was found with no ID on the edge of Victoria’s Beacon Hill Park one year ago today.
Her death was quickly considered a homicide.
But one year later, Lozano’s friends have more questions than answers.
“We know nothing!” said Don Vaillancourt from Toronto. “A year. That’s a long time. I think there should have been more answers by now.”
“What happened? Was she strangled? What happened to her? My brain, I just keep thinking about her over and over,” said Davies.
The last visible sign of the investigation was on March 25, 2021, when police raided a home near Fort Street and Foul Bay Road.
A man was put in handcuffs, who friends tell CHEK News, was Lozano’s boyfriend.
“She was in an abusive relationship. It was physical on more than one occasion,” alleged Vaillancourt.
Police have never confirmed any arrests or suggested any charges to crown so far in relation to Lozano’s homicide.
They also say the lack of public information is to protect the integrity of the investigation.
“I can understand people wanting to know more information,” said Bowen Osoko, spokesperson for Victoria Police.
“It’s really important for people to be aware that homicide investigations are the largest investigations that we have as a police department. They take a lot of resources and they have a really large scope. What’s really key here is we share the information that we’re able to, knowing that the goal here is to identify the person or persons responsible for Bree’s death so her family can get justice in court for what occurred to Bree.”
Police also say someone out there, knows something.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Vancouver Island Integrated Major Crime Unit’s information line at 250-380-6211.
“There’s a lot of family and friends that really loved Bree and really miss her and wish she was still here,” said Lozano’s friend Dayna Wagner.
