$10M lawsuit over death of Rebecca Zahau at Spreckels Mansion moves forward

Judge: Enough evidence to support claims

By: 10News Digital Team
Posted: 12:03 PM, Oct 17, 2014


SAN DIEGO - A $10 million lawsuit over one of San Diego's most mysterious deaths will move forward.

A judge ruled that there is enough evidence to support the claims made by the family of Rebecca Zahau.

On July 13, 2011, the 32-year-old Zahau was found naked and hanging from the second story balcony of the Spreckels Mansion in Coronado.

Two days prior, on July 11, Max Shacknai, the 6-year-old son of Zahau's millionaire boyfriend Jonah Shacknai, fell down some stairs and died three days later in what was considered a freak accident. At the time, he was under Zahau's care.

Zahau wrongful death suit goes forward

By Pauline Repard
8:32 p.m.Oct. 16, 2014

CORONADO — The family of Rebecca Zahau, whose nude body was found hanged at a historic Coronado mansion, can pursue their wrongful death lawsuit claiming she was murdered, a judge ruled Wednesday.

The lawsuit alleges that the ex-wife and brother of Zahau’s millionaire boyfriend conspired to batter Zahau, then cover up her death.

The defendants have denied the claim, calling it a “sham pleading” setting out facts that are implausible.

~Snipped~

The suit was initially dismissed, but U.S. District Judge Thomas Whelan ruled on Wednesday that an amended complaint alleged sufficient facts “to state a claim of wrongful death based on a conspiracy to batter.”

The suit alleges Dina struck Zahau on the back of the head four times with a blunt object, and Adam carried her into the house, where the three stripped off Zahau’s clothes and bound and gagged her. Adam is alleged to have tossed her off the balcony and, at Dina’s instructions, painted the odd message, “She saved him. Can you save her” on the door.

Whelan denied the defendants’ motion to dismiss the suit, saying he must look at the allegations in a light most favorable to the plaintiffs.

Dina Shacknai's lawyers lambast lawsuit in Coronado hanging (Video)

Robert Anglen, The Republic | azcentral.com  6:59 a.m. MST October 24, 2014

Dina Shacknai says a lawsuit accusing her of murder in the 2011 California hanging death of her millionaire ex-husband's girlfriend is baseless and senseless.

Shacknai's lawyers this week lambasted a wrongful-death suit filed by relatives of Rebbecca Zahau, who was found hanging nude from the balcony of a Coronado Island mansion with her hands tied behind her back and feet bound.

"Dina Shacknai's reputation has been irreparably damaged by these allegations," Costa Mesa, Claif., attorney Kim Schumann said in a statement. "We intend to swiftly and aggressively put an end to this matter by every legal means necessary, and will be taking appropriate steps to remedy Ms. Shacknai's reputational damages."

(Crime scene photo)

http://www.cbs8.com/story/22189885/family-of-rebecca-zahau-to-sue-sheriff-bill-gore-seeking-evidence-in-her-death

(Looking at the above picture it is impossible for me to believe that Rebecca did that to herself. There are many indications that Rebecca was hog-tied, and that the ligature between her neck, wrists and ankles was cut after she was dead for at least three hours; her knees stayed bent because rigor mortis had already set in before the rope was cut.)

4 years after Coronado mansion death, Zahau family continues quest for justice

Posted 8:23 AM, July 14, 2015, by Jaime Chambers, Updated at 08:45am, July 14, 2015

CORONADO- It’s been four years since Rebecca Zahau’s nude body was found hanging from a balcony at a Coronado mansion with her hands and feet tied.

Investigators still stand behind their assertion that Rebecca’s death was a suicide, but her family members remain convinced it was an elaborate revenge killing. Attorneys for the Zahau family allege Adam Shacknai, Nina Romano, and Dina Shacknai are responsible for the murder.

In a $10 million wrongful death lawsuit, Zahau family attorney Keith Greer points to a string of evidence that suggests that this death was a murder. Greer points first to how her hands and feet were tied and that she was gagged.

“The only reason to gag somebody is to keep them quiet obviously, and if Rebeca is doing this herself she knows that when she jumps off, she will have a noose around her neck, and it will cut off her air and she will not be able to scream, “ said Greer.

I am glad that Rebecca's family is suing. Closing this case as a suicide was grossly irresponsible and incompetent, IMO. I hope RZ's family prevails on their lawsuit and hopefully the case will be reopened as a murder investigation.

It looks like we might know next week if there will at least be a civil trial.  Oh, I hope so.

Audio evidence
Thanks for this, Junie!  From your link, this is about all that we have on the "audio evidence."  An "ear" witness, I guess.

If anyone is interested, there is also a video at that link where the witness verbalizes what she heard that night.


Snipped quote from article date May 9, 2015:  Keith Greer, the Zahau family attorney, told NBC 7 there is now a piece of evidence he thinks could be the key to this mysterious case: an audio recording of investigators interviewing a woman who was near the Spreckels Mansion before Zahau's body was discovered.

In the recording, the woman says she heard screaming coming from the mansion.

"It was clear, it wasn't a muffled or far off sound,” she told investigators, according to Greer.

“Give me an example of what you heard, if you were mimicking what you heard,” an investigator asked the woman on the audio recording.

“She went, ‘Ahh, ahh. Then she went help!’” the woman told the investigator.

This is a pretty good video from the link below.

One of the defense attys has the following to say:

About 1:40 minutes in:  "None of those allegations specifically deal with the identity of the person who was alleged to have done all of those things."  

At least they no longer seem to be arguing that Rebecca's death was a suicide.


http://www.10news.com/news/judge-zahau-wrongful-death-case-can-go-forward-031016

I'm so pleased for Rebecca and her family!  The judge's ruling that this case can move forward to civil court is an amazing accomplishment.  I think it was thrown out two or three times, but her family kept trying.  Bless them.

Civil court = preponderance of the evidence.


Snipped quote:  The quantum of evidence that constitutes a preponderance cannot be reduced to a simple formula. A preponderance of evidence has been described as just enough evidence to make it more likely than not that the fact the claimant seeks to prove is true. It is difficult to translate this definition and apply it to evidence in a case, but the definition serves as a helpful guide to judges and juries in determining whether a claimant has carried his or her burden of proof.  End Snip

The wrongful death civil trial in connection with Rebecca Zahau's death begins this week in San Diego with jury selection.

Lawyer: Zahau was strangled, hanged at Coronado mansion in 2011

Attorney C. Keith Greer held a plastic-wrapped chef’s knife in his hands, placing his fingertips on the blade where Rebecca Zahau had left her own fingerprints.

The angle of his hands, he said, made sense only if he held his hands behind his back, the blade facing out.

Jurors Hear Evidence in Coronado Mansion Mysterious Death (Video)

On July 13, 2011, Rebecca Zahau was found hanged at the home belonging to her boyfriend Jonah Schacknai. Jonah Schacknai's brother, Adam found her and called 911.

By R. Stickney

Published at 11:47 AM PST on Feb 28, 2018 | Updated 3 hours ago


Someone strangled Rebecca Zahau first before she was lowered over the balcony of a Coronado mansion in 2011, an attorney told jurors in San Diego Wednesday.

Attorney Keith Greer outlined several key pieces of evidence he says prove Adam Shacknai, 55, is responsible for Zahau's death.

Greer made the statements as the wrongful death lawsuit filed by the family of Rebecca Zahau began Wednesday. Zahau was found dead at the Spreckels mansion more than six years ago.

Her death was ruled a suicide by investigators with the San Diego County Sheriff's Department, but Greer outlined several points of evidence that he said shows the death was not a suicide.

Jury to rule on riddle of tycoon Jonah Shacknai’s hanged girlfriend Rebecca Zahau

Ben Hoyle, Los Angeles
March 1 2018, 12:01am,
The Times



Rebecca Zahau believed in God, was in love with life and would not commit suicide, her family claim

Rebecca Zahau’s body was found naked, bound and gagged, hanging from a balcony at her millionaire boyfriend’s Californian mansion.

Seven weeks later, to the disbelief of her family, the Sheriff of San Diego County announced that her death was a suicide.

They have always believed that the 32-year-old devout Christian was murdered. After a fight for justice that has lasted more than six years, a civil trial began in San Diego yesterday in which their legal team will try to marshal new evidence to prove it. The wrongful death lawsuit brought by Pari Zahau, her mother, and Mary Zahau-Loehner, her sister, alleges that the brother of Ms Zahau’s boyfriend sexually assaulted and strangled her before tipping her corpse off the balcony.

It makes me sick this has taken so long. (This is the worst case in San Diego history. Outrageous!)

May God bless the Zahau family.

Expert mariner shows how knots tied on Rebecca Zahau

Lindsey Philpott leaned over the lifelike female mannequin, modestly draped in a white sheet, and wrapped a cord around its ankles.

He explained his knots to jurors as he wove the red polypropylene rope in figure eights until the mannequin’s heels and ankles were held firmly together.

A little later, he performed similar maneuvers with another length of cord, tying the mannequin’s wrists together.

(In my opinion, this experiment is totally wrong).

The message left in black on the door to the bedroom where Rebecca Zahau was found dead was cryptic. Two lines, no punctuation.

The first read: "She saved him" The next: "Can you save her"

Theories on just who wrote the enigmatic message took center stage in a San Diego courtroom Monday afternoon, during the third day of trial testimony rising from the wrongful death lawsuit brought by Zahau's family.

For two days, the parents of 6-year-old Max Shacknai believed that Rebecca Zahau had saved his life after he was severely injured in a fall.

Jonah Shacknai and his ex-wife Dina Shacknai spent hours at Rady Children’s Hospital at Max’s bedside, where he lay in a medically induced coma.

In a videotaped deposition, Dina Shacknai recalled that after their son’s July 11, 2011 injury, her ex-husband told her, “you should get down on your knees and thank (Zahau) for saving Max’s life. I said, of course I’m grateful to her, because she gave him CPR.”

Several months after Rebecca Zahau’s body was found bound and hanging at a Coronado mansion, a well-known forensic pathologist went on the “Dr. Phil” show to announce that while he couldn’t say with certainty that the woman had been killed, his findings during a second autopsy raised serious questions about the death.

That same pathologist, Dr. Cyril Wecht, was much more definitive while testifying in Zahau’s wrongful death lawsuit on Monday.

“In my opinion, Rebecca Zahau’s death was a homicide,” he said in San Diego Superior Court. “She was manually strangled and it was set up to look like a suicidal hanging.”

Zahau could not have tipped herself over balcony in suicide, expert testfies

By Pauline Repard•Contact Reporter

March 13, 2018, 4:25 PM |San Diego

Could Rebecca Zahau, at 5 feet 3 inches tall, bind her hands and feet, hop to a balcony railing more than half her height and tip herself over in a suicide by hanging?

An expert in how the human body moves testified on Tuesday that, according to his mathematical calculations, it would be nearly impossible.

“She’d have to hop wherever she goes,” said James Kent, a forensic kinesiologist.

“She would have to fall forward onto the railing. She wouldn’t go over because her center of gravity is below the railing,” he said.


“With her hands behind her, she’s in no position to propel herself. No way to do anything but sit there.”

Kent said that if Zahau managed to fall freely, rather than being lowered by another person, the sudden tension of the noose around her neck could have decapitated her.
