Murder staged to look like suicide, or, suicide staged to look like murder, the bizarre death of Rebecca Zahau‘Right now I’m not going to go into details other than it appears to be some kind of violent death, by that I mean I’m not going to compromise the integrity of the investigation than giving you more than that now.’
-Capt. Tim Curan, San Diego Sheriff’s Department, July 13, 2011
What started out as a description of a ‘violent death’ has, one week later, become a full court press from the Coronado California and San Diego County Sheriff Department cops as a ‘possible suicide’ in the bizarre death of 32-yr-old Rebecca Zahau. The suspicious death ‘unrelated’ to the ‘accidental’ death of 6-yr-old Max Shacknai, son of 54-year-old Arizona pharmaceuticals tycoon Jonah Shacknai.

“There are documentations of incidents throughout the country where people have secured their feet and hands as well to commit suicide, so we have to keep an open mind,” San Diego County Sheriff’s Department Sgt. Roy Frank said.http://deathby1000papercuts.com/2011/07/rebecca-zahau-death-authorities-seal-records-push-suicide-meme/
The motivation is so they can’t change their minds and free themselves.
“Some of the psychologists will tell you once that decision is made, there is an urge of self-preservation, and this is one way to preclude oneself from stopping an attempt to end their life,” Coronado Police Chief Louis Scanlon said.
One possible suicide theory is that Zahau might have hung the noose from the balcony, binding her hands and feet before stepping off a table. A table was one of the items taken from the mansion as evidence.
Zahau’s sister tells News 8 it’s upsetting to hear investigators are considering suicide as a possible cause of death, saying:“Obviously the investigation is not complete yet, but as far as what I know about my sister, my sister did not commit a suicide. My sister was not depressed, my sister was not frantic, my sister was planning to call my parents the next day and was planning to keep me posted about Max the next day.”...read more
