Rebecca Zahau Found Hanging: Murder or Suicide?

Rebecca Zahau's death was ruled a suicide by investigators twice, so why did a civil suit brought against her boyfriend's brother show that he killed her? This week, Savannah breaks down the incredibly twisted tale surrounding Rebecca Zahau's hanging. Just the day before Rebecca was found dead, Rebecca was at billionaire Jonah Shacknai's home when Jonah's son Max died in a freak accident. Jonah's family, including his ex-wife, felt strongly that Rebecca was directly responsible for Max's accidental death. The next day, Jonah's brother Adam Shacknai reportedly found Rebecca hanging from a balcony, tied up and gagged, and a cryptic note was found etched on her door. So did Rebecca kill herself due to guilt over Max's death, or did Adam strangle and kill Rebecca as an act of familial revenge? Go to and use code killer130 to get $130 off, plus free shipping!
