The family of Rebecca Zahau, the woman found hanging at billionaire Jonah Shacknai’s home in July, doesn’t want the police to close the case on her death has exclusively learned. 

“Rebecca had no history of suicidal tendencies, no psychological problems and no history of depression,” high profile lawyer Anne Bremner, who is representing her family, exclusively told  “The family wants justice. The police have a duty to fully investigate the case and we don’t want them to close the investigation today. The family does not believe it was a suicide.”

As exclusively reported, Zahau’s sister believes her sister was murdered. “Becky did not kill herself, someone killed her,” Snowem Horwath said.  “Time will reveal who killed Becky.  I think I know who killed my sister.  We are not stupid, she never had any enemies.”

Bremner said the family would like a forensic psychiatrist and a criminal profiler to investigate the case.  “We’re not pointing fingers, but we want a further investigation.”  

The attorney also claimed to that the police have a cryptic note they claim is a suicide note, but the family does not believe it is Rebecca’s handwriting and she alleges that the police did not analyze other samples of her handwriting.

“We want a further analysis, including fingerprints and other evidence the police say they have.”

Zahau was found naked with her hands and feet bound, hanging from an outside balcony at her boyfriend’s mansion on July 18, just days after his six-year-old son Max was rushed to the hospital after being found unconscious in the home.  Max tragically passed away days later.

Bremner said the family was distraught that Rebecca’s death is being ruled a suicide.  “All this family wants is justice,” Bremner said.  “If Jonah Shacknai is in the same camp he shouldn’t be fighting us.”

The San Diego Medical Examiner’s Office and the Coronado Police Department will be holding a press conference on Friday to officially announce their ruling of Rebecca’s death as a suicide.
