Johannesburg - The man suspected of having killed Teazers boss Lolly Jackson, might already have skipped the country.

That's according to a source who knows the 41-year-old George Louka.

Louka, who goes under the name George Smith, is believed to have been Jackson's "muscle".  He also has close ties with Czech fugitive Radovan Krejcír.

Jackson was shot at a house in Eldeen, Kempton Park, on Monday night. 

The killer, who fled in Jackson's Jeep Grand Cherokee, phoned the police to let them know that he'd shot Jackson. He indicated that he would hand himself over, but then disappeared.

Police on Wednesday drew a veil of secrecy around the investigation saying they won't comment further until there has been a breakthrough.

Krejcír's lawyer, Ian Small-Smith, confirmed on Wednesday that police had questioned his client for more than an hour.  "He told them everything he knows about George Smith (Louka). "

Small-Smith added that his client was not a suspect. 

A source claims Louka changed his name to "Smith" because he was a fugitive in two countries.

The source told Beeld that the suspected killer had moved "three times in four years".

"I think he's left the country. There never was a shortage of money. He went abroad every few months."

Louka was described as a good friend of Krejcír's and the two apparently were often seen together.
