Calgary father offers hefty reward for info about daughter's murder

Every night, Calgarian Jeff Buziak sets his phone on the endtable next to his bed, just waiting for one call that would help ease more than four years of suffering.

His daughter, 24-year-old real-estate agent Lindsay Buziak, was stabbed to death in Saanich, B.C., by someone police believe was impersonating a potential buyer.

That was in 2008.

Now, the Calgary resident is publicly offering up a reward of up to $500,000 for anyone with information that leads to a conviction.

Buziak and a team of dedicated volunteers, some of which did not even know Lindsay but were disturbed by the nature of her killing, spend hours every week chasing leads in the case.

“I have made a commitment to do everything I can within the law, and maybe teetering on the fine edge of that . . . someone killed my daughter,” he said. “They broke the law, not only the law of the country but the human code.”

Saanich police did investigate a potential lead connected to Calgary after it became apparent that Lindsay had met with an individual later arrested in connection with Alberta’s largest cocaine bust; however, Sgt. Dean Jantzen said Monday the case is complicated and offered little insight on whether his officers are close to an arrest.

“It (the investigation) has been hampered by the fact that we believe people have information they’re not sharing with us,” Jantzen added.
