Jonah Shacknai Still Not Suspected in Mansion Deaths Despite Lengthy Police Probe

by at . Comments

Despite receing nine calls in three years related to two of Jonah Shacknai's homes, investigators are finding no links to two mystery deaths in his mansion.

"There doesn't appear to be a connection," Coronado, Ca., Police Commander Michael Lawton tells People. "There's nothing here that stands out as suspicious."

The calls involved the beachfront mansion owned by Jonah Shacknai, a CEO of a pharmaceutical company, and another residence four blocks away.

His ex-wife Dina lives in the second residence. Their son, Max, 6, died after a fall in the mansion earlier this month, which was officially ruled an accident.

Just two days later, Rebecca Nalepa (a.k.a. Rebecca Zahau, 32) was found hanged there. She had been dating Jonah Shacknai for close to three years.

Calls to police from 2008-present included a report of a vandalism to a car at the home, second-degree burglary, a robbery alarm and other incidents.

Five calls between 2009-2011 to the ex-wife's home included a suspicious vehicle call, two complaints of disturbing the peace, and a burglary alarm.

Police found no crimes had been committed in any of those cases.

Lawton says the area is full of tourists and prone to frequent police calls and false alarms. Some of these reports may not have involved either property at all, but were simply in close proximity to an random incident, he posits.
