SAANICH - For the friends and family of murdered realtor Lindsay Buziak the past three years have been a long and tough road.

It's a journey that has been filled with pain and hope. Lindsay's father it's been a difficult quest; a search to find his daughter's killers.

On Wednesday Jeff Buziak lead a group of friends and family on a memorial walk, the third anniversary of her death.

A crowd of about 80 people followed the grieving father on the 16 kilometre trek through the streets of Saanich briefly stopping at the house on DeSouza Place where his daughter was killed.

Jason Zailo says returning to the scene of the murder was difficult.

Zailo discovered Lindsay Buziak's body on February 2, 2008. Her body was lying in an upstairs bedroom. She had been stabbed multiple times.

The walk is intended to attract renewed interest the case. Zailo says he is happy that so many people showed up.

"It has touched so many people in Victoria. And it's a small community and a small town and everybody knows about it," says Zailo "It's touched a lot of people. It's nice that there's so many people out here for Sarah and the family".

Investigators believe a man and a woman posing as prospective home buyers lured Lindsay to the house and then killed her.

However three years later; still no arrests.

"It has taken a toll", explains Sgt. Dean Jantzen describing how Saanich investigators are dealing the unsolved crime "These are a proud group of people that really want to know the answers."

Police have poured through a lot of evidence in the past three years including the knowledge that the cell phone that was used to lure to DeSouza place was in Victoria the night before Lindsay Buziak died. Investigators found the phone had several hits off a cell tower in the Cook and Finlayson area.

But throughout the investigation, all to often, evidence like that has lead to more questions, more avenues to chase, and more dead ends.

Investigators believe they need a tip from someone who knows something about the murder before they can more the case forward.

It's the reason the department's Chief makes an appeal when the walk arrives at Saanich Municipal Hall.

"We need your help to do this. Someone in the community knows more than they have told us. And you need to come forward and do the right thing", Chadwick says "Lindsay and Lindsay's family deserves no less than this".

For those who love Lindsay it is the one piece of information they say need to end their journey.

"We don't want to be here next year so I don't want to say I want to do this again", Lindsay's father says.

And offering an appeal of his own, Jeff Buziak adds "We want to rest. I don't want to be here to do this anymore".
