Lolly's funeral set for Monday

2010-05-05 13:39
Johannesburg - Preparations are under way for murdered Teazers boss Lolly Jackson's funeral on Monday, club spokesperson Sean Newman said on Wednesday.

Finalised details would be released later, but in the meantime, staffers were preparing for the strip clubs' reopening in the evening.

No special events were planned to mark Jackson's death at the reopening, said Newman.

Business as usual


"It will be business as usual, that's the way Lolly would have wanted it," he said.

If Jackson, of Greek descent, is seen off from a Greek Orthodox church, the lengthy ceremony would include the chanting of special prayers in Greek and English, candles and incense, and a later gathering of family and friends to share Greek sweet and savoury delicacies as they offer each other condolences.

Police refused to discuss the investigation on Wednesday, as the media continued to present theories on why Jackson was shot dead at a house in Kempton Park.

The theories put forward reportedly include a money laundering deal gone wrong, a dispute involving the boyfriend of a former stripper, or problems during the purchase of a luxury vehicle, for which Jackson had a penchant.

Jackson was found murdered at a house in Edleen near OR Tambo International Airport after police received a call from a man who wanted to hand himself in.

"When the police got there, they found the body... the man had disappeared," said police spokesperson Colonel Eugene Opperman.

Police working non-stop


On Tuesday night, police said they would work non-stop until they found the perpetrator, who had apparently driven off in a Jeep Grand Cherokee.

A man named "George Smith" was believed to be connected to both the stolen vehicle and the phone call made to the police.

The house where Jackson was found was not his, but was believed to belong to a friend Georgios Toumbis.
