In a mystery worthy of a detective novel, Rebecca Zahau (aka Rebecca Nalepa) was found nude, bound at the hands and feet, and hanging by the neck from a balcony on Wednesday at the famed Spreckels mansion on Coronado Island in San Diego.
Her boyfriend, the owner of the mansion, is a pharmaceutical CEO. The man's 6-year-old son was critically injured in a fall from the mansion's grand staircase on Monday.
Here's my theory for what happened. The ex-wife did it. She's already bitter at the girlfriend for supplanting her, and then her son is gravely injured while in the care of the supplanter. She's got the motive, and as a very wealthy woman, certainly has the means to hire a professional. Chicks don't just turn up hanging naked from balconies without somebody wanting them dead.
