Officials Won't Reopen Rebecca Zahau Investigation

by at . Comments

California's Attorney General says officials will not reopen the investigation into the death Rebecca Zahau, despite calls from Jonah Shacknai to do so.

Rebecca's nude body was found hanging from a balcony at Jonah's Coronado, Calif., mansion, days after his son, Max, was found unconscious there.

Rebecca's death was ruled a suicide, which her family vehemently disagrees with. Max later died from injuries he sustained from an accidental fall.

Despite the mysteriousness of Zahau's suicide message and the way her body was found, among other factors, officials consider the matter closed.

In a letter from Kamala Harris' office to Jonah Shacknai, the A.G. writes:

"Your letter requests an inquiry into the investigation that was conducted by the San Diego Sheriff's Office ... The California Department of Justice would review a local investigation under very narrow circumstances."

"Some of the factors that are considered before committing the state's scarce resources include whether a clear conflict of interest exists, whether local law enforcement agency has requested assistance, whether local investigative resources have been exhausted, and whether there are allegations of gross malfeasance by the investigative agency."

"Based on a review of your request, we must decline your invitation to review this investigation at this time."
