July 2011 double deaths at the Coronado Spreckels Mansion
In 2011, The Coronado mansion was owned by millionaire Jonah Shacknai, CEO of Medicis Pharmaceutical.
On July 11, Shacknai's 6-year-old son Max was at home in the care of Shackni’s live-in girlfriend, 32-year-old Rebecca Zahau. While Zahau was otherwise occupied, Max took a fall over a second floor staircase banister. Max died in hospital the morning of July 16.
Sometime in the overnight hours of July 12-13, while Max’s parents were sitting vigil at his bedside in the hospital, Rebecca Zahau appeared to have committed suicide at the mansion. Zahau’s family disagreed with the Sherriff Department’s weeks of forensic analysis and conclusion that Zahau’s death was a suicide. They filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Jonah Shacknai's brother Adam, who had come into town to support the family. In April 2018, the jury in a civil trial deemed Adam Shacknai responsible for Zahau's death and granted her family a $5.2 million judgment for loss of love and companionship and financial support.
