Again, thank you for all the support Lindsay receives from you wonderful people trying your hardest to assist in solving her murder. I try to stay as current as I can with everything that goes on concerning Lindsay’s murder, from recognized facebook sites to media, emails, messages, phone calls and meetings. Sometimes it is overwhelming, but I must endure for Lindsay, for her friends, for Lindsay’s family, and for you, the most loyal, dedicated supporters one could ever wish for.
The latest topic of discussion seems to be focused directly on the Saanich Police, and I see this serious topic has garnered some new posters resulting in an increased depth of discussion, information, insight, knowledge and intelligence to back their opinions. This can only help to move things forward to where this case should be in terms of resolution and jurisdiction. Well here are my $0.02 worth:
As most of you know, my relationship with the Saanich Police has had its ups and downs since the first year passed with no resolution. I have not been alone in this feeling; in fact, I have listened and endured to make sure I am not the only one continually feeling disgruntled with the handling of Lindsay’s murder investigation by the Saanich police.
I threw my full support behind them. However, my experience and interaction with the Saanich Police has always wavered from poor to okay in terms of interaction, communication, investigative results, and information. It has never been okay to very good. Don’t get me wrong here, communication is poor, but at times they do communicate with me. Usually, I have to holler at them to “just talk to me”, so they do.
Does that sound right to you?
I receive virtually no information from the Saanich Police, and I have come to realize that I never will. I have adjusted to this by only forwarding information to them, and now I rarely ask any questions at all. The fastest route to insanity for me is to ask the Saanich Police any questions about details or facts concerning Lindsay’s murder because they WILL NOT answer them. Am I happy? NO. I have adapted to the Saanich Police and learned to live with them as they keep informing me that we don’t have any options as they ARE NOT turning the case over to any other jurisdiction.
How do you feel about that friends?
Let’s address investigative results. Well, I probably don’t have to as they speak for themselves. NOTHING! Am I happy about that? Of course not. The situation makes me sad, mad, depressed, disappointed and more than anything, furious. I lost my daughter, and that in itself is overwhelming.
As one poster just mentioned, over 3 years and not 1 suspect. Unreal no?
I feel, and have felt since early on in this investigation, that something was amiss. Poor to no communication with the Saanich Police, poor transparency, poor response to peoples’ calls to them, no information at press conferences and always excuses, fear mongering, and preparing the public for the worst.
Can you imagine being told your life was in danger by the police and that they could not protect you, yet they don’t have a suspect? Think about that. Please. What the hell are they doing? No suspects, poor communication, no information being released, and no arrests.
What do we have at this point with Saanich Police? A pathetic sketch, a poor description of two people, plenty of excuses, and continued pleading to the public to help them. Added to this mess, Saanich Police’s track record of the previously posted unsolved murders, their refusal to unite policing in the Capital Region, their refusal to join VIIMCU, and their refusal to hand Lindsay’s case over to another police agency.
Where are we for God’s sake? Nowhere!
Am I happy? I certainly am not as my precious daughter was viciously slaughtered, executed in her home town under the noses of a police force who continue to boast about how proficient they are, yet produce nothing.
Is it time for Saanich Police to turn this case over to another police agency and plead to them for assistance instead of to us? My answer must be obvious.
Please tell me what you think. Tell the Solicitor General of B.C. what you think. Tell the mayor of Saanich how you feel.
I remain determined.
