Wife’s case may be ‘cold,’ but her death still matters
The Bacon brothers are once again in the news (“Surrey man charged in murder of Jonathon Bacon,” The Leader, Feb. 28).
A few weeks ago, the Lindsay Buziak (realtor in Saanich) murder made the news too, as her family was trying to renew police and public interest in pursuing that “cold case.”
My axe to grind is regarding the amount of cold cases in this province that go unsolved and forgotten.
There was also the woman in the Whalley area of Surrey who was brutally beaten and later died. Like her and Lindsay Buziak, my wife was also murdered (in 2004). The case is obviously now cold.
Like the other two women, my wife was valued, and she had people who loved her. Popularity or public awareness should have nothing to do with the police’s desire to solve murders. In all fairness, the cops should just get their stuff in order and do what we hire them to do.
My wife’s name was Sharon (nee Brevick, born 1957), and we miss her a lot. I certainly am disgusted that the cops have wasted their time and our taxpayer dollars diligently solving the mystery of who killed gangster Jonathan Bacon in Kelowna in 2011.
