Dr. Phil is Stepping In…

And the Spreckels Mansion investigation continues to get more interesting. Just when you thought it was over, the Dr. Phil show has stepped in to assist the family of Rebecca Zahau in exhuming her body for further tests.

Zahau, 32, was found naked, bound, and hanging from the balcony inside the Spreckels Mansion on July 13.  After a seven-week investigation, the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department and other agencies determined she committed suicide after being grief-stricken over the impending death of her boyfriend’s son, Max Shacknai.

Her family has refused to accept the finding, saying Zahau was a religious woman who viewed suicide a sin. In November, the Zahau family will appear on the Dr. Phil show to discuss the findings.
