Top Pathologist Questions Rebecca Zahau’s Autopsy Report

The bizarre case of Rebecca Zahau just got a whole lot stranger. Rebecca was the girlfriend of millionaire Jonah Shacknai who was found hanging naked and bound outside a window in his mansion following the death of Jonah’s 6 year old’s son Max.It was initially believed she had committed suicide after being upset about the accidental death of Max (she was the only person home when he fell down a flight of stairs). However her family are convinced Rebecca would not take her own life and definitely wouldn’t bound her hands and feet nor put a gag in her mouth.

On Friday officials declared her death a suicide but a local news group obtained a copy of the autopsy report and alarms bells immediately started ringing. Renowned pathologist Dr. Cyril Wecht then entered the debate when he saw the report and became immediately skeptical about the official findings.

Here are some of things the Medical Examiner did not adequately explain on the report –

1. How she managed to bind her hands (behind her back) and feet and put a gag in her mouth?

2. How she tied a shirt three times around her neck and then tied the other end to a bed with neat slip knots and square knots?

3. What was the mysterious tape residue  found on her ankles?

4. She also had subgaleal hemorrhages on her head which only occurs when the head is struck by something.
