The case was re-opened after four years, and after intensive speculations, police finally revealed the murderer of the 39-year-old.

It was her then-boyfriend, a businessman named Donald Bohana, 62, who was convicted of second-degree murder, charging him with the brutal beating and choking of the former wife of Tito.

Bohana too released his statement saying that they were swimming together, he got out for a moment, and when he returned, Jackson was dead.
