THE CONSPIRATORS AND KILLERS


DID CIRILO BAUTISTA LOPEZ CALL THE HIT ON LINDSAY BUZIAK?

CIRILO BAUTISTA LOPEZ had the power to call the hit on Lindsay BuziaK. His nephew Erickson Delalcazar had just been busted in Calgary and suffered an $8 million loss. Now that certainly is enough motive to call a hit. Cirilo would want retribution. It is possible that Leopoldo Beltran was the killer and if that is the case without a doubt the order would have come from Cirilo. Court transcripts say that Cirilo was at the top of the heap and at one time a member of the Rock Machine.

As for Leopoldo Beltran if he had any connections to the cartel he would have been a small player. Here’s a guy who has entered Canada illegally 3 times, then is finally deported in late 2010. The facts don’t support that a guy who has to sneak into the country has any power at all. Would a top cartel member be slumming with the likes of the Delalcazar brothers, Vid, Medardo and Miguel Franco Rivas? NO! He would be the guy sitting back giving the orders. Instead he was running drugs and was taken down in the Calgary Drug bust in the fall of 2008.

WHO WERE THE FINANCIERS OF THE DRUG SHIPMENT THAT WAS DESTINED FOR CALGARY IN 2007/2008? THE UP-FRONT MONEY WOULD NEED TO BE UPWARDS OF $2 MILLION.

CONSPIRATORS:  CIRILO BAUSTISA LOPEZ, EDGAR OVIDIO ACEVEDO (Vid),  SANDY DELALCAZAR, EMERSON DELALCAZAR & MEDARDO FRANCO RIVAS.

BEWARE OF VID ACEVEDO – He is known to carry weapons and is considered dangerous. He is often accompanied by his good friend Emerson Lopez Delalcazar.

Vid Acevedo, the Delalcazar brothers and a few others have gotten away with murder for 13 years. These guys are life-time drug traffickers, beaters, who love to threaten, bully and assault anyone that gets in their way. Often charged with assaults and drug offenses but rarely see a day in jail. They know the system, they laugh at the system and they laugh at the police. This group believes that they will never be caught for the part they played in conspiring to murder Lindsay Buziak. They have no remorse, no regrets and Lindsay’s murder did not phase them in the least, because instead of going straight they carried on with their life of crime. Let’s hope that when arrests are finally made there will be enough evidence to put them away for life.

KILLER’S ACCOMPLICE HERMILA ROJO BELTRAN

THE KILLER?  – LEOPOLDO ROJO BELTRAN

Leopoldo Beltran

Leopoldo Rojo Beltran was one of the men charged in the Calgary Drug bust. He was a citizen of Mexico, allegedly with ties to a Mexican drug cartel. At the time of Lindsay’s murder, Leo lived in Calgary. His sister Hermila lived in Burnaby. Hermila had a heavy Spanish accent just like the female suspect. The female suspect called Lindsay with the soul intention of luring her her to the Desousa property. MURDER was their plan.   Leo and Hermila are the most likely suspects to have gone into the1702 DeSousa home and they fit the description the witnesses gave.

During Operation High Noon, a tracking device warrant was obtained and was installed on the Quest in June 2008 while it was still located at the Edmonton address. Later, the Quest was driven back to Calgary and parked in the garage of the residence of Leopoldo Fernando Beltran.”

The Quest then returned to Vancouver the next day on June 12, 2008. It went dormant for a period of about 4 months. For almost the whole of that time, the Quest was stationary, either in an underground parking garage in Surrey, BC or parked in front of the home of Leo Beltran’s sister Hermila.

The burner phone was registered under the name Paulo Rodriguez. In 2010 Investigators said, “they do not believe the killers live in the Victoria area.” The investigators clearly have evidence to support that conclusion.  Leo was deported from Canada in 2010 the same year investigators made that statement.  Hermila left Canada a few years later. Leo divorced his first wife Trudy, is now re-married and living in California.

Did the killer’s murder Lindsay to send a message? Early on in the investigation, there were rumors swirling in town that the people involved in Lindsay’s murder were untouchable and the case would never be solved.  Makes sense considering the suspects do not live in Canada and they have ties to the Mexican drug cartel. Regardless – this case will be solved.  The killers were betrayed and they knew it. Lindsay was not the snitch as they had been led to believe. She did not rat out the Calgary Drug operation. The killer’s murdered an innocent young woman.

The cell phone used to lure Lindsay to her murder was purchased in downtown Vancouver. It was registered under the name Paulo Rodriguez.”  In 2008 Leo was living in Canada illegally and deported back to the US in 2010. Leo is currently living in San Diego, California and Hermila is living on the outskirts of Los Angeles, California. 

It was reported on Dateline that Lindsay said the female caller sounded “kind of Spanish“.  IN 2010 THE SAANICH POLICE MADE THIS STATEMENT.

“After exhaustively investigating this crime for the past two years, this is what we know.  We know that a woman with an accent made contact with Lindsay using this crime phone.   This is the woman who is believed to be involved in Lindsay’s murder Lindsay did not know the name of the suspect couple. It was rumored that she stored their phone number in her contact list under the name “The Mexican’s”.   

NOTE: While the police made the statement that a woman with an accent made contact with Lindsay, they never made mention of a man calling her. This would mean that Lindsay was never contacted by the man, only the woman.

“Leopoldo Fernando Rojo Beltran was a Mexican citizen with ties to a Mexican drug cartel.”  He is over 6′ with dark hair and light complexion. Leo was in charge of the Calgary drug operation and has a violent criminal history. 

COURT TRANSCRIPT INFORMATION – CALGARY DRUG BUST “Cave said investigators believe the operation disrupted in Calgary has links to a distribution network spread through the “United States, beyond that to Mexico and South America.” “The involvement of police in Victoria suggests the cocaine may be transported from Mexico along the coast — avoiding the United States — and coming in through Victoria, he said, adding he believes the lack of marine border security on the coast leaves an open gate for drug smugglers.

BASED ON INFORMATION FROM COURT TRANSCRIPTS Leopoldo Rojo Beltran was the TARGET of another investigation, and was on POLICE radar as early as April 2008. This would parallel with the Lindsay Buziak murder investigation and is likely the reason CBSA did not arrest Leo Beltran in April 2008 when they were aware he was in Canada illegally.  TWO MONTHS after Lindsay’s murder  Leo was under surveillance.   Given the timeline of Lindsay’s murder and the timeline of when CBSA became aware of Leo’s location, it’s safe to assume the investigators knew all along who was responsible for Lindsay’s vicious murder.  Info from court transcripts: “Sometime between November 6 – 2003, and his latest arrest on December 3 – 2008. Leopoldo Rojo Beltran re-entered Canada illegally.

It is unknown to the CBSA how or where he entered the country. However, the CBSA was aware as early as April 20 – 2008, that Rojo Beltran was in Canada and they knew his whereabouts. . He was not legally authorized to be in Canada during this time period.”[9] The offender’s personal circumstances include that the CBSA was aware of his presence in Canada illegally, but yet the CBSA delayed charging and prosecuting him for a lengthy period of time.

The offender submitted that his time in custody and lengthy house arrest upon release should be considered in his application for a discharge. He also argues that the CBSA delayed prosecuting him and in doing so, allowed him to stay in Canada. I am not persuaded by these arguments.

The delay in prosecuting was explained in the Agreed Statement of Facts as the offender was a target in another ongoing investigation. In June 2008 the investigators were aware that a vehicle used to courier cocaine in the Calgary drug ring and belonged to Leo Beltran. It was in a garage at his residence. That vehicle then returned to Vancouver where it was parked in front of the home of Leo Beltran’s sister Hermila.

OPERATION HIGH NOON: A tracking device warrant was obtained and was installed on the Quest in June 2008 while it was still located at the Edmonton address. Later, the Quest was driven back to Calgary and parked in the garage of the residence of Mr. Miguel Rivas-Franco’s brother-in-law, a Mr. Leopoldo Beltran. The Quest then returned to Vancouver on June 12, 2008, and went dormant for about 4 months. The Quest was stationary, either parked in an underground parking garage in Surrey or parked in front of Mr. Beltran’s sister’s home in South Burnaby.

The investigators were aware the vehicle sat dormant from June 2008 to approx. Oct of 2008.  Leo Beltran was under surveillance during this time so it makes sense that CBSA did not arrest him in April when they had the opportunity. Multiple other agencies were working together with the SP on Lindsay’s murder investigation. “The female suspect called Lindsay from the VANCOUVER area and the cell phone used in this crime travelled from the Vancouver area to the Island.” Leopoldo Rojo Beltran’s sister lived in Burnaby at the time of Lindsay’s murder. “Investigators found no fingerprints, DNA or other physical evidence in the house. Buziak’s boyfriend, who found her dead at the house, and her ex-boyfriend have both been cleared by police.

The suspect couple was described as being “Caucasian”.   The investigators know based on forensic evidence that there were only 2 people in that house with Lindsay at the time of her murder.  It was reported in 2010 that the female suspect left behind blood-soaked nylon footprint on the stairs leading down to the front entranceway. In reference to the killer’s: ”

Investigators said they do not believe the killers live in Victoria.”  Saanich Police took the unusual step of appearing on the NBC Dateline Dream House Mystery show with hopes of generating tips. An international tip line has been set up as well as a local one.”  “This is completely different than other homicides, in the sense that we have people who have been SENT or HIRED to set up the victim — to go to the house and commit the murder,” Horsley said. This makes the investigation extremely complicated, in that the killers might have come from outside Greater Victoria.

”For more than two years Saanich police has been on the hunt for the killers of local Real Estate agent Lindsay Buziak. Vancouver Island news reports, investigators say – when they do catch Buziak’s killer’s, they won’t find them in the Victoria area. Based on information in the media the killers do not live in the Victoria area” With probable certainty the investigators are aware the suspects are living in the California area. This would be the reason the lead investigators appeared on Dateline and set up an international tip line.  Leo returned to SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA in 2010 the same year investigators appeared on Dateline and set up an international tip line. Leo’s sister also left Canada a few years after Lindsay’s murder and her last known whereabouts is in the outskirts of Los Angeles, California.

The experts on Dateline felt the female suspect probably wore the colourful dress to take the focus off her face in the event anyone witnessed her approaching the Desousa property. “Little evidence found at the crime scene. ALL the DNA was traced back to slain real estate agent Lindsay Buziak. None came from the killers, police say.”

“One indication that this murdered was planned by highly sophisticated killers is that remarkably little forensic evidence being was found at the crime scene. Det. Sgt. Chris Horsley said: The DeSousa murder house had been professionally cleaned the afternoon of the killing. All DNA evidence extracted from the house, was traced back to Lindsay Buziak. Police investigators tracked everyone who had entered the home, including tradespeople, and real estate agents. They found no fingerprint or footprint matches.

Investigators obtained volumes of data from cellphone towers in Vancouver and Victoria to look for matches between the cellphone used by the suspect couple and any other cellphone transmissions, but to date, police have not been able to find a match that might provide information leading to their identification. Horsley said that doesn’t mean the evidence doesn’t exist. “There are literally hundreds of thousands of transmissions, and we could still find that link,” he said. To nail down the SEQUENCE OF EVENTS, police looked at the TIME when the lockbox was accessed on gas meter located at the side of the house. This is consistent with the 5:30 p.m. scheduled meeting between Buziak and the couple, and with testimony from witnesses who saw Buziak greet the pair in the driveway.

Horsley would not give any details on the condition of the house but said investigators know exactly what movements the KILLERS made through the home AFTER the attack, including that they left through the French door at the rear of the house. Jason Zailo’s friend Cohen had discovered that open door around 6:15 p.m.

“This killing was very organized,” said Saanich police spokesman Sgt. Dean Jantzen. “There was a lot of planning and effort and forethought. These are the most complex crimes. And this is the most egregious crime and often they can become long-term and complicated. “There are people in the community who are withholding information. We know there is a bit of cone of silence around this.”
