Rebecca Zahau was found dead in July 2011 hanging from a second story balcony at her boyfriend Jonah Shacknai's mansion in Coronado. Her death came just days after Jonah's 6-year-old son Max took a fatal fall in the same home. Jonah's brother Adam Shacknai is believed to be the only other person at the home when Rebecca died.
A jury previously found Adam liable in Rebecca Zahau's death and awarded her family $5 million, despite a law enforcement ruling that her death was a suicide. The dismissal vacates the jury's verdict due to a settlement reached between Zahau's family and Adam Shacknai's insurance company, for an undisclosed sum.
AM 760’s Mark Larson spoke in depth with Adam Shacknai in studio on the details about his alibi during the time Zahau died. Shacknai also talks about, in his opinion, the unfortunate process of going through civil courts in trying to clear his name.
