We discuss one of the most perplexing murder-mysteries of modern times; who killed 12-year-old Garrett Phillips in his Potsdam, NY, home in 2011? The assailant seems to have escaped from a 1st floor window, but who has a motivation to kill this child?..
Our follow-up interview with Jeff Buziak - father of Lindsay Buziak - who was brutally murdered in Victoria, British Columbia, in February 2008. Lindsay was a 24 year old realtor who was lured to the scene of her murder by a mysterious couple who Lindsay nicknamed "The Mexicans". Her boyfriend, Jason Zailo, discovered her in the master bedroom of the house she was showing the "couple". She had been stabbed over 40 times. In this podcast, we discussed the theory that her murder was revenge for a massive drug bust conducted in Alberta in 2008, as well as the contrary theory that Lindsay's boyfriend and his family were behind the murder.
As we mainly discussed new theories in this podcast rather than re-treading old ground, we highly suggest you first listen to our initial interview with Jeff, conducted in 2018:

But is there more to this case than meets the eye?
