The death of Rebecca Nalepa, a woman found nude, hanging from a balcony, her hands and feet bound, at a Coronado, Calif., mansion last week, has officials launching an investigation into her millionaire boyfriend Jonah Shacknai.
Shacknai, who police say owns the home, had been dating Nalepa for about two years. Jonah's brother, Adam Shacknai discovered Nalepa's body.
After calling 911 early Wednesday, he cut her down. Local paramedics performed life-saving measures, but she was pronounced dead at the scene.
Investigators are calling the death suspicious but have not ruled out the possibility of suicide. Making the case even more noteworthy is the fact that Jonah's six-year-old son, Max, fell to his death just two days earlier.
Police have not established a formal connection between those events.
"It appears to be some type of a violent death, however I'm not going to compromise the integrity of the investigation by giving anything more than that at this time," San Diego County Sheriff's Dept. Capt. Tim Curran said.
