Lindsay Buziak was a 24-year-old real estate agent living and working in the Greater Victoria area of British Columbia. In early 2008, Lindsay was contacted by an unknown female with a noticeable accent. The female told Lindsay that she and her husband wanted to purchase a million-dollar home in Victoria that weekend. The cell phone used to contact Lindsay was registered in the Lower Mainland under a fictitious name and was used exclusively for this crime. The unknown female arranged to view several homes with Lindsay on February 2, 2008, including a new home located at 1702 De Sousa Place in Saanich.

At approximately 5:30 p.m., Lindsay met with the unknown female and a male at the home on De Sousa. Lindsay advised friends and family that she was nervous about the showing and therefore her boyfriend arranged to attend the house shortly after her.  Her boyfriend arrived at the residence, along with a friend, at approximately 5:45 p.m. and observed a male entering and closing the front door.  The male was described as well dressed, approximately 6 feet tall, with dark hair.  Believing the showing had just begun, her boyfriend waited outside for Lindsay to complete her showing.  Not seeing any movement in the house, her boyfriend sent a text message to Lindsay to check on her and did not receive a response.  Concerned that something had happened, her boyfriend and his friend attended the front door of the residence and found it was locked.  Her boyfriend placed a call to 911 and actively began trying to find a way into the home.  Prior to police attendance, entry was gained into the home where they found Lindsay had been fatally stabbed in an upstairs bedroom.  The male and female Lindsay met with have not yet been identified nor have any arrests been made in relation to this crime.
