Pharmaceutical CEO Jonah Shacknai kept the mansion as his vacation home. On July 6, his 6 yr old son Max fell over a second floor staircase banister, dying in hospital the morning of July 16. Overnight July 12-13, while Jonah and Max’s mom were at the hospital, Jonah’s girlfriend Rebecca Zahau committed suicide by hanging herself off a second floor balcony. She had been in charge of watching Max the night of his accident. The series of events and causes of death are still hotly debated.
