  • Details of Disappearance
    Mark Jackson had gone out clubbing with a friend on the evening of June 25, 2004. He and his friend arrived back at his condo at approximately 4:15 a.m. The friend said he fell asleep at 5:00 a.m., but when he awoke six hours later, Mark was gone. Surveillance cameras at the condominium show Mark and his friend coming home that morning. Jackson resides at the Drake Tower Condominium on Andrews Avenue in Fort Lauderdale. He was last seen at his condo at 5:00am on June 26, 2004. At 8:40 a.m. on the day he disappeared; someone checked Mark's e-mail account. Someone also checked his voicemail, but no one knows who checked it.

    Mark is known as a friendly, hard working and dependable person. Along with not being seen or heard from by his family, friends and employer, Mark's brand new BMW was still parked in the parking lot of Drake Towers. His car keys, building access key and cell phone were located in his apartment. Mark's wallet and credit cards were gone. He is very close with his family and always contacted them regularly.

    In May 2005, Steven Lorenzo and Scott Schweickert were implicated in the murders of two gay men. It is believed that they may have many more victims. Mark's case is now being re-examined for any possible link to Lorenzo and Schweikert. At the time of Mark's disappearance, Lorenzo owned an apartment that was literally right across the street from Jackson’s. Lorenzo's arrest affidavit shows e-mail between him and Schweikert explaining how they could easily make victims just disappear.
