San Diego sheriff says woman committed suicide at mansion, boy's death was accident
SAN DIEGO (AP) ' The San Diego County sheriff says the deaths of a 6-year-old boy and a 32-year-old woman at a historic Coronado mansion earlier this summer were not homicides.
Sheriff Bill Gore told a press conference Thursday that young Max Shacknai's death was an accident and the death of Rebecca Zahau was a suicide.
Max had suffered a fall down a staircase while under Zahau's care and died days later. Zahau subsequently was found hanging.
Max was the son of pharmaceutical magnate Jonah Shacknai and Zahau was Shacknai's girlfriend.
