Episode Forty-Six: The Spreckels Mansion

On July 11 2011, Rebecca Zahau and Max Shacknai were at the Spreckels Beach House along with Rebecca's sister when her boyfriend's son Max fell over a second-floor banister. Max died 5 days later due to his extensive injuries. On July 26, investigators ruled Max's death a tragic accident.

On July 12, the day before her death, Rebecca picked up her boyfriend's brother Adam from the airport and brought him back to the mansion. There were reports of loud music coming from the house that evening. The rest of the family was supposedly keeping a vigil at Max's bedside. Adam stated that he found Rebecca nude, hanging from a balcony, with her wrists and ankles bound the following morning.  On September 2, investigators formally announced their finding that Rebecca committed suicide.

But is all as it seems?
