Two days after the 6-year-old son of a prominent Scottsdale executive was severely injured in a fall at the family's California mansion, a woman died there under what police describe as suspicious circumstances.

The woman found dead at a Coronado, Calif., mansion owned by a prominent Scottsdale executive was found hanging nude from a balcony with her hands tied behind her back and her feet bound, a witness told officers.

The San Diego County Sheriff's Department on Thursday identified the woman as 32-year-old Rebecca Nalepa, the girlfriend of Jonah Shacknai, 54, founder and CEO of Scottsdale-based Medicis Pharmaceuticals Corp.

Well, Mr. Judge & Jury, let's see some evidence first, shall we?
Another great US vigilante.

have they even determined if he was in the state (company in AZ - mansion on Coronado)

it's also not that hard to bind up your own hands and feet and hang yourself .... we also don't know exactly what the binds were

there is pretty much zero information on this

at least wait until the investigation is completed before we shoot holes into it .... although the quick assertion that the two are not related is a bit off

but how about we wait until there is actual evidence of a crime, and that someone committed said crime. but i guess you guys have some sort of clairvoyance that lets you know exactly what happened? if then what are you doing posting here. you should be contacting police department that is handling the case and tell them what you know.
Hey, Im just saying that if we dont have him on tape commiting the crime, or if there were no eye witnesses, then we should let him go.

How does one tie their hands behind their back? The ex-wife and mother of the young boy lives down the street. Her son died while in the care of the girl friend ... could the ex-wife possibly have taken out her revenge on the girl friend. Just throwing out another possibility.

David Carradine did it. Unless of course, you think he was murdered.

Statistically, however, a very, very small percentage of people kill themselves naked. That is one reason why many people think that Marilyn Monroe was murdered. People don't seem to mind being found with their brains blasted all over the wall but they don't want people to see their "private parts". Go figure.

that is true about the naked aspect .......... then again, if she was trying to ruin someone on the way out........

as for binding

let's assume that it's not hard to set a noose and then tie your feet .... you are 2/3 of the way there

Also note that we don't know what bound is .... you could easily handcuff yourself, even behind your back .... set one and you still have enough use of fingers to set the other

people can bind themselves with the plastic from 6 packs

you could use a loose rope/knot setup where you again have one hand through the loop and holding the rope - you then put that behind your back, put your other hand through and use your fingers to pull the slack, tightening the rope

you could have one of those belts where you don't need to fasten it any pre-punched hole and use one of them

it's not that hard

although we have no idea how she was bound, what it looks like, etc

so again, probably best to let there be an investigation before we punch holes into it

Her sister has stated there is no way she committed suicide. She had talked to her that night, as I recall, and she was OK and getting ready for bed, was going to call her mother the next day. Very few women hang themselves or kill themselves, especially naked. IMO, this was staged and definitely in connection with the son's death. In their grief, it could have been the father or mother of the child. Just too coincidental for it not to be connected.
