In 2008, a young real estate agent named Lindsay Buziak was murdered inside a vacant, $1-million home in Victoria, British Columbia on Vancouver Island.

Lindsay’s murder shook the community—and made international news.   

But with few new details coming to light, investigators eventually hit a wall.

So in 2019, Capital Daily, a local news and investigative journalism outlet, embarked on a quest for new information about the unsolved murder that continues to haunt the community, Lindsay’s many friends, and her family. The intent was to separate fact from fiction. 

Now, people who had sworn off doing another interview are re-breaking their silence. 

And people who were close with Lindsay are giving extended interviews for the first time.

With this new podcast series, Capital Daily is finally ready to reveal its reporting, with new details from people who were there. With unexpected twists and turns. And with a glimmer of hope. 

Fifteen years after Lindsay’s murder, a new story is ready to be told by investigative journalist Zander Sherman and Capital Daily.

Missed opportunity

I liked it at the beginning and then it became the Zailo show. What happened to investigating the case of who murdered Lindsay? Why was Shirley never asked about the phone call she made to Lindsay’s friend? In all the time spent with Jason and Shirley it doesn’t seem like any of the tough questions were asked and a lot of time was spent on them just clearing their name. Huge missed opportunity.

Disappointing

Waste of time . I don’t care to hear the Zailos whine and display almost no empathy towards her family. If you don’t like Dateline’s reporting, then do your own digging and he’s almost done nothing. I haven’t heard any new information or theories.
