SAANICH -- Beneath the blossoms in a Gordon Head neighbourhood, a reminder of what happened inside a nearby home is plastered to utility poles for blocks. Large type next to her picture reads "Who Murdered Lindsay Buziak."

In February 2008, investigators arrived to find the 24-year old realtor stabbed to death inside a home she was showing. More than four years later, Saanich Police have made no arrests, and Friday told CTV News the investigation is at a standstill. "We're as committed today as we were several years ago when this tragic incident happened. We will not forget" says Sgt. Dean Jantzen.

But Lindsay's father Jeff has been doing some investigating of his own. He says he has a core group of a dozen volunteers who work seven days a week trying to solve his daughter's murder. Buziak believes there are limits to how much police can accomplish. "I question the energy, resolve, and dedication they have to solve this case. We're over four years now and there are no suspects, no arrests, no new information."

Frustrated, Jeff Buziak is trying a new tactic. He's distributing a letter addressed to anyone connected with the murder , asking them to come forward with information. In exchange, he says:

"A SUBSTANTIAL amount of money will be discussed with you well beyond any amounts offered to this point."

And adds: "I want to be perfectly clear that for YOU there is another option. That option is an out for you of relocation, identity change, and payment of serious monies that will make the rest of your life enjoyable and free of all repercussions from this nightmare."
Buziak says he will go to any lengths, within the means of the law, to find the critical piece of missing information to solve the case.

Saanich Police say relocation programs do exist, but they're offered up by investigators, not the public. "To be very clear, these are not emanating in any way from our investigative team, the Saanich Police, or any police agency whatsoever, nor can we endorse such solicitations" adds Jantzen.

Jeff Buziak's supporters are also canvassing the neighbourhood where his daughter was killed, distributing letters pleading for tips. He says his desperate drive to solve the case is what gets him out of bed. "I'm a father. Someone butchered my daughter. I think any father would hunt these people down. That's what motivates me every day."
