          Civil Trial Ends With Man Found Responsible For Death Of His Millionaire Brother’s Girlfriend


          May 8, 2018

          Mary says that since her sister, Rebecca Zahau, died on July 13, 2011, she has vowed to get justice for her. She claims that the 32-year-old, who was found gagged and hanging naked with her hands and feet bound, was murdered by her wealthy boyfriend’s brother, Adam Shacknai. Police, however, claim the young woman died by suicide, distraught over serious injuries, including brain damage, that her boyfriend’s son suffered while in her care just days prior.

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Are you involved in a story that has made the headlines?

          “I believe that Adam Shacknai murdered my sister,” Mary says. “My family and I have been fighting every day for the last seven years to try to bring Adam Shacknai to court … Fighting Adam Shacknai and his team of attorneys was like David fighting Goliath.”

          Mary says that after appearing on Dr. Phil and having a second autopsy done on her sister’s body, she and her family believed they had enough evidence to win a civil trial against Adam.
