Woman found dead at Coronado mansion laid to rest

Posted: Updated:

CORONADO (CBS 8) - The woman found hanging from a balcony at a Coronado Mansion, 32-year-old Rebecca Zahau, has been laid to rest.

Zahau's sister tells News 8, she was buried during a private ceremony on Saturday.

Zahau's naked body was found 11 days ago, at the historic Sprekels Mansion in Coronado and bound at her hands and feet.

The mansion is owned by 54-year-old Johan Shacknai, who was her boyfriend.  Shacknai's son died the same week after falling down a staircase in the mansion.

Zahau's family says they plan on releasing a statement in the next few days, with details of a memorial fund.

Investigators say her death was either a murder or a suicide, but it may be weeks before toxicology results are back to help them determine a cause.
