The Murder of Lindsay Buziak

The Delalcazar Insider, the Main Informant and the Big Double Cross


Over the past year a substantial amount of new information has surfaced in Lindsay Buziak’s homicide investigation and with probable certainty the police are just tying up all the loose ends before making arrests. I firmly believe this has been a very complex, exhaustive and difficult case for everyone involved and without a doubt this is what the conspirators who planned Lindsay’s murder were counting on. Unfortunately for them the Saanich Police, the RCMP, the Victoria Police, FBI and whoever else has been involved in this case have never given up. Of course the strongest advocate for justice has been Lindsay’s father, and while his unorthodox methods are harsh at times the fact is he has managed to keep Lindsay’s case out there in the public eye.

THE MAIN INFORMANT

It came as quite a shock to learn that the main informant was a woman who worked in the Re/Max Camosun Westshore office at the time of Lindsay’s murder and still works there today. Her motive for contacting the Calgary Police in late November 2007 to rat out the Delalcazar drug shipment heading to Calgary is still a mystery, although I am confident the different police agencies involved in Lindsay’s case are well aware of why she did it. That call triggered a two month long drug investigation dubbed “Operation High Noon” and led to multiple arrests and a street loss of 6.8 million dollars to the financiers of that drug operation. I question why this woman chose to call the Calgary Police? Why didn’t she contact the Esquimalt Police, after all that was the jurisdiction where the Delalcazar family lived? Why not call Crime Stoppers where you can remain anonymous? Why didn’t she contact the RCMP Westshore where her Re/Max office was located?

January 22/2008 The Calgary Drug undercover street team witnessed a drug transaction between two vehicles just a block away from the stash house – 5 kilos of cocaine and $105,000 cash were seized. That search led the officers to the home in the 300 block of Hawthorne Drive NW where another 25 kilos of cocaine and $217,00 cash were seized.

January 28/2008 42 kilos of cocaine was found in the safe. Months later another seizure bringing the total to 80 kilos of cocaine seized.

A few days after the 1st bust went down on January 22 nd 2008 the main informant was brazen enough to make a 2nd call to the Calgary Police to tell them they had missed the motherload and that drugs could be found in the safe. This woman had no fear, but she certainly had a strong desire to see Erickson Delalcazar taken down.

Was this woman working alone, or was she following the orders of someone else? As she is known to be someone who likes to control, I would suggest she decided she was going to be the one to make the call.

THE DELALCAZAR INSIDER

Just who was this mystery Delalcazar INSIDER? It is not likely to be a friend that overheard a phone call, or someone who was included in a conversation about the upcoming shipment. No, this is going to be someone deeply entrenched in the operation. If we take a look at the friends the Delalcazar brothers were close to in 2006/2007 we can quickly eliminate the ones who would not have been included in this operation.

The close friends at that time were Graham Scott Taylor, Alycia Faithful LeBrun – bestie Christina Bryne, Medardo Franco Rivas, Miguel Rivas – (brothers) Kevin Baker, Shane Wilson – Jacine Jadresko (a couple) JC Adkin, Aaron Perez – Christina Bennett (a couple) Matty Pakos, Vid Acevedo, David Bennett the father of Christina Bennett. Ziggy Matheson was also known to associate with this group at times. There are others but for now this is the group we need to pay close attention to.

THE REASON THE INSIDER HAD TO BE DEEP INSIDE THE OPERATION IS BECAUSE HE/SHE KNEW THAT AFTER THE 1ST BUST ON JANUARY 22ND THE CALGARY POLICE HAD NOT YET FOUND THE DRUGS IN THE SAFE. That information was passed from the Delalcazar insider to the main informant who then called the Calgary Police to let them know.

Remember, Alycia Faithful LeBrun was the one who signed the lease on the Hawthorne stash house in Calgary so she certainly had skin in the game. Alycia was charged with conspiracy to traffic in that Operation High Noon takedown but not until October 2008. She was sentenced to 8 years, served 3, and she is still close friends with the Delalcazars today. She cannot be eliminated as the insider because she had a close friend in Victoria she shared everything with.

Graham Scott Taylor and Erickson Delalcazar were the only two people busted in the January 2008 takedown. The other arrests came months later. Did Graham Scott Taylor have a financial interest in the game? He was definitely an insider close to the operation but if he had no financial interest in the game he might be one to look at.

IF YOU HAVE A FINANCIAL INVESTMENT IN THIS MULTI- MILLION DOLLAR OPERATION YOU ARE NOT GOING TO BE DOUBLE-CROSSING YOUR PARTNERS.

WHO DID THE DELALCAZAR GROUP HIRE TO INSTALL THE HIDDEN COMPARTMENTS IN THEIR VEHICLES?

The weapons, body armour and hidden compartments used to transport the drugs across the province’s boundaries demonstrate the sophistication of the crime group, Cave said. It took close inspection to detect the large compartments, which were created strictly to move the drugs, Cave said. “It’s not just somebody ripping out a seat cover and placing it underneath the cushion. It goes much beyond that.”

THE DELALCAZAR INSIDER WAS SETTING UP A DOUBLE CROSS. If you follow along it isn’t hard to figure out who the insider was.

We know that Shane Wilson (RIP) was a paid informant but that was in later years. Shane was “not” the insider because the boys would never have trusted him enough to be part of the operation. Matty (RIP) was a close friend but he was “not” the insider. Aaron Perez was a good friend, but he was also a drunk, a drug user and not someone the boys could ever trust. Aaron was “not” the insider.

Dave Bennett owned his own home and a business called “Dave Bennett Restorations & Rebuilding” (vehicles) and he was close to the boys at that time. Was he involved in the operation, he certainly had the financial means to be an investor? Dave was also close friends with Ziggy Matheson and Steef de Frel. Steef used to be one of Zachary’s drug runners and was also in Dave Bennett’s wedding party a few years back. The insider is someone who had skin in the game but no financial interest in the operation.

Could it be Medardo or Miguel? Well Medardo & Miguel’s sister was married to the Leopoldo Rojo Beltran so it is unlikely they would double-cross Leo, a guy connected to the Mexican cartel. As for Miguel, he was charged with conspiracy to traffic in narcotics and served time. The brothers had no motive and no connection to the Matheson group so they are not the insiders.

Of the 14 charged, two have already been sentenced to prison terms. The rest of the cases are still before the courts.

Two Calgarians, Miguel Ernest Rivas Franco, 28, and Alycia Lynn Faithful-Lebrun, 26, are charged with conspiracy to traffic cocaine. They are expected back in court on Friday.

MORE OFTEN THAN NOT THAT OUTWARDLY BROTHERHOOD FACADE IS SIMPLY A COVER FOR WHAT’S REALLY GOING ON BEHIND CLOSED DOORS. The brothers were known to constantly fight amongst themselves and to have serious jealousy issues.

WHY DID THE DELALCAZAR INSIDER CHOOSE TO LEAK THE INFORMATION ABOUT THE DRUG SHIPMENT HEADED FOR CALGARY TO ZIGGY MATHESON RATHER THAN PICK UP THE PHONE AND CALL THE CALGARY POLICE HIMSELF?

Was the insider wanting to keep his distance and let someone else rat them out? Was the insider working with the Zachary Matheson group all along in the plan to have the Delalcazars taken down, or was Zachary Matheson unaware this was going to happen until he was contacted and given the information in late November 2007? This plan just seems so conspiratorial in nature. It would take a group of deviant minds to come up with such an elaborate scheme to take out the Delalcazars and whoever the insider is reached out to Zachary Matheson’s group for a reason. Why did the main informant jump to play her part and call the Calgary Police. I suspect Matheson’s group chose a woman to make that call never imagining that the Delalcazars would suspect a woman.

Let’s not forget that Lindsay saw something she shouldn’t have seen and that was during the time she was living with Jason Zailo. If the Zailo’s wanted Lindsay gone – what better way to do it then to set Lindsay up as the scapegoat when Beltran came looking for the rat. Their plan was successful.

When Erickson Delalcazar was denied bail on February 1st 2008 all hell broke loose and Beltran’s group were on the hunt for the person that ratted them out. Clearly Lindsay was the scapegoat, set up by a group of cowards who feared for their own lives. That includes the main informant, anyone else in Zachary Matheson’s group who knew the truth, and the Delalcazar/Vid group who knew damn well that Lindsay was not the rat. This groups of cowards set Lindsay up to be the scapegoat and somehow Jason Zailo sits smack in the middle of it all. The Delalcazar INSIDER was either working closely with the Matheson group or he/she gave Ziggy the information knowing that he run with it. Surely after all this time the Delalcazars have figured out who the INSIDER was that double-crossed them. Heck, it could have been one of 4 Delalcazar brothers who was jealous that his brother Erickson was going to make a big pile of money and he had been left out in the cold. Who was the jealous brother who felt left out in the cold? Emerson?

IT IS NOT DIFFICULT TO FIGURE OUT WHO THE INSIDER WAS, AND THE REASON FOR THE DOUBLE CROSS IS NOT THAT THAT DIFFICULT TO FIGURE OUT EITHER.
