    In July 2011, Shacknai’s son Max fell down the stairs at the Spreckels mansion and died as a result of an injured spinal cord. Two days after the fall, Shacknai’s girlfriend Rebecca Zahau was found hanging nude by a rope around her neck from the second-story balcony above the home's courtyard. The death was later ruled a suicide by officials.
