By Alexis TereszcukRadar Senior Reporter

The historic  mansion where Rebecca Zahau’s body was found hanged this summer has been sold by the billionaire owner Jonah Shacknai, who was her boyfriend at the time of her death.

Shacknai’s six-year-old son Max had an accident in the home on July 11, and two days later Zahau, 32, who had been taking care of the young boy at the time of his accident, was found hanging naked from a balcony of the historic mansion.

Max tragically passed away a few days later and the San Diego Police Department and Coroner’s office controversially ruled Rebecca’s death a suicide. 

Her family has repeatedly told that they believe she was murdered and are still searching for answers surrounding her mysterious death.

The San Diego area Spreckels Mansion, named after the original owner John Spreckels, was sold to an investment group for an undisclosed amount but they plan to put the home on the market later this week for $14.5 million.

Shacknai has moved his belongings out of the home and will not be returning to the mansion Scott Aurich told the Coronado Patch.

“He’s done,” he said about Shacknai, who purchased the home for $13 million but after being declared a historic home it was reassessed at $7 million.

Rebecca’s family had her body exhumed last week to conduct more tests to determine a cause of death and as exclusively reported, Dr. Phil McGraw will be meeting with the family to discuss the results and air them on his show.
