Justice For Rebecca

$9,118 of $50,000 goal

Raised by 128 people in 4 months

Six years ago, my 32 year old sister, Rebecca Zahau, was hanged with a noose around her neck off a balcony at the Spreckels mansion in Coronado California. She was naked, a T-shirt was stuffed in her mouth as a gag, her hands were tied behind her back and her ankles were tied together. Evidence shows she was sexually assaulted before she was hanged. San Diego Sheriffs Department (SDSD) called it suicide. We filed a civil law suit against the alleged murderer, and we have been working tirelessly, alongside our attorney for more than four years. Despite being faced with roadblock after roadblock by the team of lawyers from across the country paid for by the alleged murderer's rich brother, we were able to get the case before a jury for a trial that started February 26th 2018. We may not have the wealth, but we have faith and truth on our side. We have to bring experts to prove that Rebecca could not do what SDSD said she did and her injuries are consistent with murder. These experts are very expensive and we are in dire need of help to pay these fees. There has been overwhelming support from around the world, and here at home, in the fight for justice for Rebecca. We really need that support financially and in prayers now during trial. Spread the word and share the links. Please help us make sure that the murderer is held accountable for this brutal murder.

Hi everyone!
Today is the 7th year anniversary of the day my sister Rebecca was murdered. Since we won the civil trial and the jury held Adam Schacknai responsible for Rebecca’s murder, sheriff Gore has told our attorney Greer that they will review the court documents and evidence that was presented during trial. The murderer is walking free to live his life. We have no idea what they are doing and what their plans are. It may all be “smoke in mirrors” but we will update you as soon as we hear from them.
We will continue to fight for justice until the murderer goes to prison. Please continue to fight with us! I believe God is for justice and miracles happen everyday. R.I.P dear sister Rebecca Zahau!

I would like to update everyone on what is happening behind the scenes since our civil trial in March/April. Even though we won the civil trial the fight to get justice for Rebecca is not over yet until the murderer is behind bars.
Sheriff Gore publicly announced that he assigned a team to review Rebecca Zahau’s case files. We have since found out that “this team” included Captain McClain who has no background or experience in investigation. We as a family have not heard anything from the Sheriffs department whether it is to get information from us or to let us know of their progress. I am unaware if any detectives are assigned this case for fresh review. Our attorney, Mr Greer, has given them all the information we have and fully cooperated with the Sheriff and Captain McClain but no cooperation on their part.
Even though I knew in my heart that Sheriff Gore again is falsely giving politically correct response with empty promise, it is a slap in the face to see the reality of his lies. It breaks my heart to see someone like Sheriff Gore, with the authority to do the right thing and who gave his oath to serve and protect but instead lie to the victim’s family and to the public. He blatantly treated my sister like a piece of trash. She is an immigrant, poor, and insignificant to his career. If Rebecca was “the millionaire” this would not be the case. She is dead and cannot speak for herself. So, again he and his department has lied to us and to the public especially San Diegans. You all know my sister was not the only case that they treated with disregard, unprofessionalism, and incompetence. I believe he made the family and public think he is doing something to politicize it for his benefit for the upcoming sheriff election on June 5th.
DAVE MYERS is running against Sheriff Gore. Last election Sheriff Gore won because he had no one running against him. Dave Myers said he will reopen Rebecca Zahau case if he is elected Sheriff and reinvestigate her murder.
Please donate to his campaign and support him. I implore all the San Diegans to consider your support as if you are donating and supporting Rebecca Zahau’s cause and many other helpless and innocent victims’ cause. By VOTING OUT Sheriff Gore you will be the voice of those who do not have a voice and fight on their behalf.
I cannot thank friends, families, supporters, and San Diegans enough for fighting alongside us and for being Rebecca Zahau’s voice since 2011 and through the trial. But I am asking your help again by financially supporting DAVE MYERS sheriff campaign and vote for him on Election Day. Please go vote on Tuesday, June 5th and let justice be served to those who have been denied.

Hi everyone! It’s been 10 days since we got the jury verdict in our favor. Such a simple word but it meant the world to us as the word “YES” echoed through the court room. It was like a rock lifted off my chest. For almost 7 years we have cried, protested, pleaded to be heard and finally God answered our prayers through our court system and the jury. Now we are one step closer to getting the case reopened and try to get a criminal trial.
I want to thank the jury for their sacrifice and commitment to get justice for Rebecca. I also want to thank all friends, families, and all those who stood by us through all of this. The defense and the San Diego Sheriff’s department not only has taken her rights for due process but tried to silence the truth forever but the jury made sure that didn’t happen. They were Rebecca’s voice along with all those friends, families, strangers, and San Diegans who has been praying and rallying with us. The world knows now that Rebecca did NOT commit suicide and Adam murdered her.
The jury was very kind and generous to award my mom with 5.1 million but my mom will not be getting it any time soon. Adam does not have money. She will most likely get the 167,000 in monthly payments garnished from Adam’s salary. So, at this time I am still in debt to several of the experts for their testimonies.
We as a family would appreciate it if all of you can still continue to share the link/posts and share this page to as many as possible to keep Rebecca’s story alive.
The goal is to make the public aware that we are going to continue fighting until we get the case reopened and get reinvestigated. I know the trial has ended but behind the scene fight for justice continues until Adam Schacknai is in prison.
