The Murder of Lindsay Buziak

LEOPOLDO ROJO BELTRAN – PRIME SUSPECT?


LEOPOLDO ROJO BELTRAN was one of the men charged in the Calgary Drug bust. He was a citizen of Mexico with ties to a Mexican Cartel. At the time of Lindsay’s murder, Leo lived in Calgary. The female suspect called Lindsay with the soul intention of luring her her to the Desousa property. MURDER was their plan.   Leo is the most likely male suspect to have gone into the 1702 DeSousa home that night of February 2nd 2008 and he fits the description the witnesses gave.

LEO ROJO BELTRAN may be THE PERSON WHO MURDERED LINDSAY – but who is the person who “CALLED THE HIT” and who are “THE CONSPIRATORS” who helped to make this all happen? The conspirators are just as guilty as the person who committed the murder itself.

IS LEOPOLDO ROJO BELTRAN THE PERSON WHO PURCHASED THE CRIME PHONES IN DOWNTOWN VANCOUVER IN JANUARY 2008? A CAPITAL NEWS article written by journalist Zander Sherman in late 2020 exposed police files that indicated the Saanich Police knew the real identity of the person who purchased the crime phones. If this is the case, it would explain why this information was never disclosed to the public. Leo Rojo Beltran was no longer living in this country and the police had no jurisdictional powers to bring him back to Canada. Not just that, but if Leo Beltran is the person who purchased the phones it does not prove that he was the one who killed Lindsay Buziak. The police would need real hard evidence to get the US authorities to agree to extradite this man back to Canada – and the purchase of a burner phone would just not be enough to do it. The Saanich Police/RCMP/FBI/Homeland Security and whoever else is involved in this homicide investigation would not want to panic the public by exposing this man’s identity or alert Leo Rojo Beltran that they were onto him. An arrest at that time would have been of negative value.

Is Leopoldo Fernando Rojo Beltran the prime susPECT IN THE LINDSAY BUZIAK HOMICIDE INVESTIGATION?

IS THIS WHY THE SAANICH POLICE BROUGHT THE FBI ONTO THE CASE BECAUSE LEO BELTRAN IS CURRENTLY LIVING IN THE UNITED STATES? With all the interjurisdictional issues that relate to this case this would make a lot of sense. The extradition of Leo Beltran back to Canada is very complex. Perhaps new DNA technology is focused on Leopoldo Rojo Beltran.

LEO BELTRAN IS NOT A UNITED STATES CITIZEN – HE IS A CITIZEN OF MEXICO AND A FOREIGN NATIONAL.

WAS LEO BELTRAN DEPORTED BACK TO MEXICO FROM CANADA? IF SO WHY WAS HE ABLE TO CROSS THE MEXICAN BORDER INTO THE USA? DID HE NOT HAVE A CRIMINAL RECORD? Apparently he is currently living in the San Diego area of California. His sister Hermila Rojo Beltran is currently living in the Las Angeles area of California.

LEO ROJO BELTRAN WAS LIVING IN CALGARY AT THE TIME OF HIS ARREST IN 2008. HE HAD A WIFE AND TWO CHILDREN. HIS WIFE WAS GERTRUDIS (Trudy) and she still lives in Calgary today with her their two children. Just how much did Trudy know about her husband’s drug dealings? Did she know where her husband was on the night of February 2/2008 the night Lindsay Buziak was murdered? Leo could not have been at home with his wife in Calgary – because if he was he would not be a suspect in Lindsay Buziak’s murder. Clearly he did not have an alibi for his whereabouts that evening.

TRUDY BELTRAN’S MAIDEN NAME WAS “RIVAS FRANCO” Trudy is the sister of Medardo and Miguel Rivas Franco. Medardo and Miguel were (and still are) close friends with the Delalcazar brothers. Medardo lives in Victoria and works for a painting company. Miguel lives in Calgary with his wife and is self-employed. Life goes on for the people involved in Lindsay’s murder. Life as they once knew it stopped for Lindsay’s family and friends.

Three strikes and Leopoldo Rojo Beltran will soon be on his way out of Canada a third time for entering the country illegally. The Mexican national was sentenced to five months in jail on Thursday after pleading guilty to returning to Canada without authorization, after twice previously being deported.

No record could be found of anybody ever having been deported from Canada for a third time, although the charge of illegally returning to Canada has only been prosecuted for a couple of years. One offender in Calgary last month was ordered deported a second time and sentenced to three months in jail. Another case is pending for next Tuesday.

Canada Border Services Agency could not be reached for comment on Thursday.

Beltran’s lawyer Harry Van Harten, who argued for a conditional discharge so he could avoid a criminal record, told court his client, 35, who married a Canadian citizen and fathered two children after his second deportation in 2003, will voluntarily return to his homeland after he serves his time.

His wife will then apply for entry to Canada legally, Van Harten added, in a bid to reunite the family on compassionate grounds.  Provincial court Judge Catherine Skene rejected Beltran’s pitch for a discharge, instead going with Crown prosecutor Scott Couper’s argument for five months jail time.

Skene, calling Beltran’s actions “planned, deliberate and ongoing,” said it is his own undoing that he is in such a predicament.

“One of the facts that cause the court concern is that the offender, after entering his guilty plea, now asks the court to put him in the position he would have been in had he lawfully applied to enter Canada after his second deportation,” Skene said.

“The offence is a problematic one in that it is difficult to detect and quantify the cost to the taxpayers. I was advised by counsel that it is prevalent. The offender entered Canada unauthorized for his own personal gain and to avoid the proper and lawful mechanisms in place for application.”

Court heard that Beltran was one of several people arrested in Calgary on Dec. 3, 2008, as part of a sweep of arrests resulting from a year-long Calgary Police Service drug investigation dubbed High Noon.

Beltran’s arrest was then reported to Canada Border Services Agency and he was charged with possession of the proceeds of crime. The Crown, however, stayed the proceedings related to the charge on June 9, 2009. When arrested, he had initially given a false birth date, later proven to be wrong.

The illegal entry ordeal began on Aug. 12, 1999, when the man was first arrested illegally at the U.S. border near Port Douglas, B.C.  He then entered a claim for refugee protection four days later, but failed to show up for his hearing on Nov. 23, 1999.  He was finally arrested and deported on Sept. 4, 2000.

Beltran was again intercepted by border officers in Vancouver on Feb. 21, 2001, and he was finally tossed out of the country on Nov. 6, 2003. But he returned again.

2002 AND 2003″ Twice-deported man’s case shows border is ‘porous’

News that a man twice deported from Canada has been charged in an enormous cocaine bust is raising questions about how easily international criminals are slipping past the country’s borders. Leopoldo Fernando Rojo Beltran, 34, was deported in 2000 and 2003, and now faces charges of returning without authorization. The Canada Border Services Agency charged Beltran last December for returning illegally following a police investigation into a cocaine trafficking ring called Operation High Noon.

The agency would not say whether Beltran entered Canada illegally with false identification or by smuggling himself. But Beltran’s presence in Calgary is raising questions about the security of our borders. “It shows you how porous our borders are and the fact that these criminals are masters of deception, whether they’re using false identities or going the smuggling route. It’s really easy to do. We don’t know how many of these characters are around,” said retired police officer and former Calgary Conservative MP Art Hanger.

“The government has to crack down on this. They’re going to have to pull up their socks and tighten up the border. This revolving door for inter- national criminals is consuming far too much time,” he said. “He deserves nothing but hard incarceration, and when and if he does his time, he should be booted out of the country and flagged in such a way. He is a known and habitual criminal — he should he stopped at any check point.”

Beltran was one of 14 people arrested in the interprovincial investigation where police seized 80 kilograms of powder cocaine, worth $8 million on the street.

They also seized four handguns, a rifle, body armour and $330,000 in cash as part of the year-long investigation, announced Monday.
