The Lolly Jackson Saga
Prime suspect in Lolly Jackson murder found dead
Camilla Bath | 1 Hour(s) Ago
Eyewitness News has learnt that a man thought to be the prime suspect in the murder of Lolly Jackson was found dead on Wednesday.
The body of Mark Phillip Andrews was found in Brackendowns on the East Rand.
It is understood he suffered a gunshot wound but it is unclear whether he was murdered or committed suicide.
Andrews was identified as the owner of the account into which murdered Teazers lawyer Ian Jordaan was allegedly forced to transfer R1.8 million after he was apparently kidnapped.
He was a former protégé and business partner of the strip club king.
Jordaan's burnt out car and a body believed to be his were found near Hekpoort west of Johannesburg last week.
Meanwhile, it has also been suggested that Andrews may have shot himself because the police turned their focus to him in their investigations into the murders of both Jordaan and Jackson.

‘Lawyer killed because of relationship with Jackson’
Mandy Wiener | 6 Day(s) Ago
Friends of murdered attorney Ian Jordaan on Wednesday said they suspect he was kidnapped and killed because of his relationship with slain strip club owner Lolly Jackson.
Jordaan’s burnt out car and body were found near Krugersdorp in the early hours of Wednesday morning.
It is understood R1.8 million that he was holding for Jackson was transferred out of his account.
Jackson put the money down as security as part of a civil court case over a club in Cresta.
Jordaan was lured to a meeting with a client and hours after disappearing, his burnt body was found.
He could only be identified by dental records.
Other sources in Jordaan’s circle of friends agree the murder was a result of his relationship with the strip club owner.
Demi Jackson 'shocked' by firearm test results
Mandy Wiener | 10 Jun 2011
Lolly Jackson's wife Demi on Friday said she was shocked by reports that a gun belonging to a senior police officer could have been used to kill her husband.
The Mail & Guardian has reported that Major General Joey Mabasa was under investigation after tests revealed that his firearm was allegedly used in the murder.
Jackson, the founder of the Teazers chain, was killed in Kempton Park in 2010.
His widow Demi said her husband never mentioned Mabasa's name and the reports that his gun may have been used came as "a bit of a shock".
"I’m not really sure what to think or what to believe... but I just want the cops to start doing their job and getting answers for me,” she added.
However, questions linger about whether or not Mabasa's gun was used in the crime. The weapon was stolen from him just days before the murder.
Jackson's post-mortem showed that only bullet fragments were recovered, which can not conclusively show which gun was used in the crime.
