Death of Rebecca Zahau

A retired San Diego detective and suicide expert has told RadarOnline.com that he believes the death of Rebecca Zahau 'is very suspicious'.

Former homicide detective Rick Carlson - who penned the book I'm In The Tub, Gone which detailed a series of suicide notes - has been watching the shocking story unravel.

His former colleagues are still actively probing the baffling case after stunning Zahau, 32, was found hanging naked with her feet and hands bound inside her wealthy boyfriend Jonah Shacknai's Coronado mansion, just two days after his son Max Shacknai, 6, suffered a fatal fall while in her care.

Carlson told RadarOnline.com: "I think the whole thing is very suspicious - it just does not seem right to me.

"I investigated hundreds of suicides in my career but never anything like this one - it would be very unusual for a woman to take her life in such a spectacular way naked.

"Usually when people commit suicide they go to a very quiet place because they are so sad - the detectives examining the case will be looking at the type of knot that was used to bind her.

"She was a physically fit person, so, it would have been possible for her to perform this act but I never came across any similar case in my 35 years career."

It is understood that Jonah Shacknai was not inside the historic Spreckles Mansion during either his son's fall on July 11, 2011 or Rebecca's death two days later.

The county Medical Examiner's Office has conducted an autopsy on Nalepa, but authorities have ordered it sealed.

An autopsy will also be performed on Max Shacknai, Lea Corbin, a Coronado police spokeswoman revealed, although his death was considered 'accidental' the official confirmed.

Zahau's body was discovered by Jonah's brother, Adam Shacknai, who then cut her down from a main balcony inside the mansion.

And Carlson believes that investigators will be closely looking at the timeline of events as they try and crack the case that has gripped the wealthy enclave of Coronado where the couple resided.

He added: "I know from past history of suicide cases that somebody can be revived between four to eight minutes after such an incident so maybe he thought she could be saved and that is why he cut her down.

"But this is such an unusual case in such an up-market area like Coronado and there are clearly still a lot of unanswered questions.

"The detectives involved in the case will be working around the clock to solve this mystery."

Re: Death of Rebecca Zahau

Well since the OP doesn't seem to be coming back to explain to us:

Entering "Rebecca Zahau" into Google reveal that she was "the girlfriend of Scottsdale-based Medicis CEO Jonah Shacknai" who had been found "bound, naked, and hanging by her neck at Shacknai's Coronado, California, mansion." (Source.)

People are calling it suspicious, because according to Business Week, Shacknai's six year old son, Max, had fallen down the stairs and died due to injuries two days earlier.

In a nutshell, Rebecca Zahau "was an ophthalmic technician at Horizon Eye Specialists & Lasik Center in the Phoenix area from April 2008 to December 2010, said chief executive Michael Trier."

Re: Death of Rebecca Zahau

Why the hell would she have tied her hands and feet together? Suspicious is an understatement.

I guess the police just want exhaust all stops. People have done the strangest things in order to kill themselves, including tying themselves up (though I'm probably thinking of autoerotica where no one meant to kill themselves.)

In my opinion, however, it sounds too way suspicious. I haven't followed the case, though. I've just read about it through this thread a few hours ago. So if there are any leads, I've probably missed out.

San Diego Sheriff Says Mansion Death Was Suicide

Updated: Friday, 02 Sep 2011, 1:50 PM CDT
Published : Friday, 02 Sep 2011, 1:25 PM CDT

SAN DIEGO (AP) - The San Diego County sheriff says the deaths of a 6-year-old boy and a 32-year-old woman at a historic Coronado mansion earlier this summer were not homicides.

Sheriff Bill Gore told a press conference Thursday that young Max Shacknai's death was an accident and the death of Rebecca Zahau was a suicide.

Max had suffered a fall down a staircase while under Zahau's care and died days later. Zahau subsequently was found hanging.

Max was the son of pharmaceutical magnate Jonah Shacknai and Zahau was Shacknai's girlfriend.
