Update: Zahau Attorney Submits New Files to Investigators

The move is part of her survivors' ongoing pursuit of a new probe into her death.

Update 9:05 a.m. Tuesday: A San Diego Superior Court judge signalled Tuesday that he will approve release of autopsy photos in the July death of Max Shacknai, 6, but will wait to see if the District Attorney's Office has any objections.

The boy's mother, Dina Shacknai, sued to obtain the photos last month. If the DA opposes the release, the judge said, the office must submit any concerns by Friday. Neither San Diego County nor the Medical Examiner's Office objects to the release, according to an attorney from the County Counsel's office. A new hearing is set for April 20. 

 

New materials have been submitted to investigators on behalf of those seeking another look at , a lawyer for her family said.

The information was sent to the state Attorney General's Office, according to Anne Bremner's post on Twitter late Monday.

“In the Rebecca Zahau case, submissions have been made to the AG and DA. On behalf of her family, thank you for your support,” the post read.

Bremner responded to follow-up questions via text message, saying that the attorney general will not review the case until the District Attorney also has been consulted.

“The AG won't act until we have gone to the DA first,” she wrote.

Zahau died in July at the Spreckels mansion. Homicide investigators determined seven weeks later that , though her body was found nude, bound hand and foot, with a T-shirt pushed around her neck.

Questions persist about the case.

Zahau's family has , and has .

At least one loved one of another person who died of injuries suffered at the mansion also may have doubts. She .

The 6-year-old son of Zahau's boyfriend, Jonah Shacknai, fell at the home two days before the woman's death. . Shacknai's ex-wife, Dina Shacknai, the child's mother, filed suit last month regarding the photos.

Do you like my profile pic too, Blue?

That huge black tackle box full of makeup! C-R-E-E-P-Y! McKech, FYI, no amount of makeup, blue tinted photos or glittery blue eyeshadow can cover up a black cold cruel heart.

*waits for BBL to come here, throw out an Anne Bremner talking point and coach Mack on what to say*
Blue April 21, 2012 at 12:47 AM
Blue, you are a smurf after my smurfette heart!
Blue April 21, 2012 at 12:52 AM
I wish, "Matt the Brit" or "NCIC the Shakespearean poet" would make an appearance. Better yet where is "Kate InParadise"?
Robert Mack April 21, 2012 at 12:57 AM
Wow blue you are as wack out as wig, must be related. LOL. But seriously, get help or take your meds or whatever it is that helps you cope.. before you hurt someone or yourself.
Robert Mack April 21, 2012 at 01:01 AM
Seriously your just ranting at this point, its sad to watch. If someone knows this person please get them help.
wigbeme April 21, 2012 at 01:33 AM
MackIE - you're suggesting someone else takes meds? You. Have. Got. To. Be. Kidding. I'll tell you what - I'll contact the Zahaus for you and ask them if they even want you to be their "spokesperson" on Patch. I'm guessing I know the answer. NO
Blue April 21, 2012 at 01:51 AM
How does this explain you tinting your self portrait blue? Exactly, who are you trying to attract with these photos?
Blue April 21, 2012 at 01:54 AM
It's obvious McKech can't handle the day to day responsibilities, even with his "admin", he can't get a flyer printed.
Robert Mack April 21, 2012 at 01:56 AM
Did I say I was a spokesperson for the family? Are you telling me if I were to call Jonah or Dina up they would want you as their spokesperson, I am hoping no. I may be wrong but my guess is they are a little classier than you. And feel free to contact the family and ask if they mind what I have said.. My guess the answer would be no.. And bluefrick and bluefrack they need help.. just read the comments and tell me you disagree.. Its like reading what teens on drugs would sound like.. Not a single rational thought there.... Scarry
Blue April 21, 2012 at 02:05 AM
You have claimed Jonah and Dina are both murderers. Are murderers classier, in your mind, than posters disagreeing with you on a discussion board?
Winston Dion April 21, 2012 at 02:05 AM
I think the killer or killers wore socks and gloves. If Rebecca had done all the things that SDSO said she did and then leaped over the balcony, the balcony would be in a bloody mess. Rebecca was murdered, IMO, based on the available evidence.
BBL April 21, 2012 at 02:41 AM
And this is where you lose all credibility. HYou have no idea what you are talking about. I'm just asking genuine questions. What you don't like is that you can't answer them with a straight answer or anything other than "ask AB". Try again.
wigbeme April 21, 2012 at 03:45 AM
As scary as spelling scary with two RR's? You represent dog. Word. Find a life.
Lauren April 21, 2012 at 05:25 AM
Did you know that it's a known fact that grammar nazis have small penises? Maybe you should take a look there in the mirror wigbeme. Or what was your former name...wigfried, or something moronic like that. Robert Mack-- I commend you for continuously putting up with all the insults that these "paid" , sad people (or just plain involved) are throwing at you. I never believed Rebecca committed suicide, too many oddities surrounding what happened. If she was murdered, I hope justice will one day prevail, and those responsible get what is coming to them....if not ---well, there will be no escaping it in the hereafter.
Blue Boy April 21, 2012 at 05:06 PM
@BBL - But - but - I thought the Zahau family didn't want embarrassing details released. Looks like the ball IS in their corner, so if you want more information you have to go to them.
Blue Boy April 21, 2012 at 05:10 PM
You need to leave the Shacknai kids alone Robert, you blue faced perv.
Ann April 21, 2012 at 05:57 PM
Do these liberal police departments not care? This same non-investigation went on in Boulder Co., with the Jon Benet Ramsey murder AND in the state of Washington with Rhonda Reynold's death!
Ann April 21, 2012 at 05:59 PM
What's with this "pending approval", I'm getting?? After all the filthy names wigface calls people and I'm on "pending approval"! Give me a Buuraaaak!
Ann April 21, 2012 at 06:01 PM
Do these li ber al police departments not care? This same non-investigation went on in Boulder Co., with the Jon Benet Ramsey murder AND in the state of Washington with Rhonda Reynold's death!

Call George W. and complain. Oh wait, you probably think he planned 911. Never mind.
Red Cups in the Sunset April 21, 2012 at 06:20 PM
Again, Ann, call George W. and complain. Oh wait, you probably think he planned 911. Never mind. Again.
Ann April 21, 2012 at 06:34 PM
Li berals are on the bottom of the barrell, when it comes to ethics and morals. All you have to do is open your eyes to see that.............................
Red Cups in the Sunset April 21, 2012 at 06:44 PM
Ann Coulter, is that you?
Red Cups in the Sunset April 21, 2012 at 06:46 PM
Robert is looking for a girlfriend, Lauren. Do you like to bounce balls in the toy section of a store and go Dutch for soy lattes? He's available, but he lost his penis in a terrible spider monkey accident. Hope you are ok with that.
Tiffanie June 06, 2012 at 05:35 PM
I see they are back to deleting comments.
Tiffanie June 06, 2012 at 05:48 PM
I wonder how the election results will affect this case. Very telling that the people of San Diego didn't want to give our DA a shot at running for Mayor!
Robert Mack June 06, 2012 at 09:28 PM
Shacknai owns wristwatches that cost a lot more than what he spent on Rebecca after death, hardly an indication of sincerity or decency. How much did the Chicago lawyer that he used to attack her family cost just to retain? Exactly! And please provide us a link where Mary or any other Zahau has accepted this ruling.. It never happened!
Robert Mack June 06, 2012 at 09:36 PM
Dumamis epic failure at her run for mayor is very telling. No public official that has helped promote the Zahau suicide lie will ever be re-elected to office ever again. I hope the Shacknai parachute plan is worth it. IMO..
