Lolly's alleged killer 'possibly' in Cyprus
July 05 2010 at 02:21PM
The police are "holding discussions" with their counterparts in Cyprus about the possible presence of George Smith, the man who allegedly confessed to killing strip club owner Lolly Jackson.
"He is possibly in Cyprus and there are already discussions with the police there," Colonel Eugene Opperman said on Monday.
Opperman could not say whether Smith was being monitored.
"I think that is part of the investigation," he said.
"He has been red flagged at airports and with Interpol."
Earlier security specialist Paul O'Sullivan told 702 radio that he had tracked down Smith to his home in Cyprus.
He said Smith was living with his wife and that he was in possession of their telephone numbers.
Jackson, the owner of the Teazers franchise of strip clubs, was found murdered at a house in Edleen near the OR Tambo International Airport on May 3.
Smith allegedly phoned Gauteng crime intelligence boss Joey Mabasa and confessed to killing Jackson shortly after the murder.
He had been missing ever since. - Sapa

The outcome of this murder could leave a lot of egg on senior police faces!
At present there are more questions than answers.
They don't look good for someone!
Yes, we know that the police are not supposed to investigate their cases through the media.
Look what happened to Jackie Selebi!
