Jonah Shacknai Hires PR Firm as Police Probe Death of Rebecca Nalepa

by at . Comments

While two deaths at his Coronado, Ca., mansion are still under investigation, Jonah Shacknai has hired a high-profile public relations agency, reports say.

Shacknai hired Sitrick and Company, a powerful PR firm out of L.A.

His six-year-old son Max suffered a fatal fall down the stairs last week, just two days before Jonah's girlfriend Rebecca Nalepa was found dead.

Coronado police have ruled the boy's death a tragic accident. The death of Rebecca Nalepa, also known as Rebecca Zahau, is a bigger mystery.

She was found hanging naked from a courtyard balcony of the same home. Police investigators cannot say if the case is a homicide or suicide.

The homicide unit awaits results from forensic evidence and toxicology tests. A search warrant was served but it's not clear what was found.

Among other things, investigators are interviewing anyone who might have spoken to Nalepa in the hours and days before her death.

Investigators have found no connection between the two deaths.

In the Nalepa investigation, department officials said, "We will go wherever the evidence takes us and will investigate however long it takes to make sure we get the facts right for Rebecca, her family and the public."

The firm hired by Shacknai is the best PR firm money can buy, with a client list 13 pages long and the founder considered "the king of spin."

The firm's clients included Michael Jackson, Paris Hilton and Major League Baseball.

An executive at Shacknai's company, Sitrick, said the pharmaceutical CEO hired them to help him as he grieves and takes care of two funerals.

Very sad for the family and Jonah. Murder is never the answer but you need to pay for your crime. I hope this woman haunts your soul for the rest of your life. Karma will find it's way to you and the end will come. Consider most of your friend's gone, we have no need for you.

This is not suicide! It smells MURDER. Why is Jonah not speaking now? Is he afraid? Why was Dina at the mansion so early in the morning on the day that Rebecca was found hanging? Did Adam deliberately contaminate the evidence?

Very strange and mysterious circumstances in both deaths.My first gut feeling was that Jonah's brother Adam murdered Rebecca---she may have been crying on his shoulder over the boy's injury and he wanted more. Just makes sense to me.

Rebecca's sister, Mary described Rebecca as someone who values life and would not have committed suicide. Even if Rebecca was a magician and had committed suicide by tying her hands behind her back, it would be due to tremendous abuse, insults, name calling and violence directed her way. Perhaps someone in his/her moment of sadness, grief, anger, and sorrow told her that they were going to hang her.

You failed to mention her hands were tied behind her back and she was hung with an extension cord and she was watching the 6 year old when he "fell" down the stairs to his death. Hard to get the facts when he is such a large political donor.

Must see...
I paid $32.67 for a XBOX 360 and my mom got a 17 inch Toshiba laptop for $94.83 being delivered to our house tomorrow by Fedex. I will never again pay expensive retail prices at stores. I even sold a 46 inch HDTV to my boss for $650 and it only cost me $52.78 to get. Here is the website we using to get all this stuff, BuzzSave.com
