The FBI Just Joined An Investigation Of The Unsolved Murder Of A 24-Year-Old BC Woman
The FBI has joined a 13-year-old B.C. murder investigation after advancements in technology generated new leads.
Lindsay Buziak was 24 when she was killed in a vacant home in Saanich, B.C. in 2008.
"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," Const. Markus Anastasiades said in an update on January 31.
Buziak, a local real estate agent, had gone to the home to show it to potential buyers who have yet to be identified.
After first meeting the two outside and proceeding to show them around, she was fatally stabbed in the upstairs bedroom. Her boyfriend found her soon after.
The people that allegedly lured the young woman to the house were using a cellphone linked to a fake name in the Vancouver area.
"We have established a task force comprised of new investigators who are taking a fresh look at the case. The task force has obtained assistance from the FBI and continued support from the RCMP," said Anastasiades.
"We believe people familiar with circumstances surrounding this case remain in our community," he continued. "It is not too late to come forward."
