Dr. Phil Covers Rebecca Zahau Case With Pittsburgh’s Own Dr. Cyril Wecht

On his Dr. Phil appearance, revered and skilled Pittsburgh-based Forensic Pathologist, Dr. Cyril Wecht, revealed his autopsy findings in the Rebecca Zahau case:

In his autopsy, Dr. Wecht found that Rebecca Zahau had suffered blows to the top of her head, indicated by four separate hemorrhages beneath the scalp. Such an injury, Dr. Wecht said, indicated the possibility of her having been knocked unconscious with a blunt object, signifying why there was no sign of a struggle (as the police pointed out). Another major piece of the puzzle: the state of Rebecca's neck, which Dr. Wecht found was not broken by the force of her fall from the balcony.

Dr. Wecht also touched on the way Rebecca was tied up (and would have had to do so herself if this was a suicide): "Yes, I know Harry Houdini did slipknots and things of that nature 70 years ago, but to say that Miss Zahau was able to do it, I've yet to hear from the law enforcement people where did she acquire this skill." Ultimately, Dr. Wecht urged investigators to reopen the case and to mark the death as "undetermined" instead of a "suicide." Because, although, Dr. Wecht agrees Rebecca's death was asphyxiation by hanging, he has strong doubts it was a suicide: "While I am not prepared to unequivocally, with absolute scientific certainty, say that it was a homicide and that it was not a suicide, I lean very strongly toward it being a homicide, something involving foul play. And I lean very strongly against it being a suicide."

The Mysterious Death of Rebecca Zahau
Was it suicide or foul play? On July 13, Rebecca Zahau, 32, was found dead in a historic California mansion owned by her boyfriend, Medicis Pharmaceutical CEO Jonah Shacknai. Investigators say Shacknai's brother found the woman nude, hanging from a second-story balcony with her feet bound and hands tied behind her back. Zahau's death occurred two days after Shacknai's 6-year-old son reportedly fell from a second-floor banister while in her care. The boy died of his injuries three days after Rebecca's body was found. The San Diego County Sheriff's Department announced their finding that Rebecca committed suicide, but Zahau's family says there are mysterious circumstances surrounding her death, and they think she was murdered. Can someone bind their own hands and feet before hanging themselves? Was the cryptic message painted on a nearby door a suicide note or a message from a killer? The family has ordered a reexamination of the facts, along with an independent autopsy to be conducted by renowned forensic pathologist Dr. Cyril Wecht, who has claimed that ruling Zahau's death a suicide was a hasty conclusion. Dr. Phil is by the family's side as they hear the latest autopsy results. Will these findings bring answers or just more questions? If there is indication of foul play, who is responsible? And, can Rebecca's loved ones find closure after their tragic loss?

Watch Dr. Wecht Tuesday, November 15th on Dr. Phil and let us know what you think.
