what about the message could it be for the boyfriend...someone wanted to cause harm to him revenge for something he might have done ... Rebecca saved the son but can he save Rebecca sounds like someone trying to send a message..

Regarding “Mansion of Secrets”, did anyone other than Adam actually see Rebecca’s body hanging from the balcony? He had cut her down before the police came and I can’t remember hearing if anyone else saw her before that.

Dr. Phil, you ask “how can this happen?” when referring to the system that failed Gypsy Rose. I can tell you with certainty that too many state family social services are understaffed, undertrained and so when these things get referred to “whomever” for follow-up, for a home visit and evaluation, they too often just fall through the cracks & it gets buried on someone’s desk.

I don't think it was suicide. It doesn't fit, that message seems like a psychotic threat not a cry for help. I do wonder why no one has ever heard the voice message from the boyfriend though. Side note: why can't I even remember his name? 🤪

has anybody looked at his claim if taking a sleeping pill? many of the sleeping drugs have crazy side effects. did he say he took one so he had an 'excuse' or did he really take one and exhibit some of the side effects? https://www.addictioncenter.com/sleeping-pills/ambien/symptoms-signs/

I don't see how it could possibly be suicide, but I have a really tough time figuring out who would've had motive to kill her. I'm not convinced that her boyfriend's brother killed her. I feel like there is something we are missing because it seems to me that the terrible events that happened to Max and Rebecca are some how connected. I can't see the connection, but I don't see how they can't. I wonder if they looked into Rebecca's sisters that were there when Max was injured? I think that investigating the death of Max may open some doors to answer what happened to Rebecca.

we have to know what was in that mysterious voicemail, why was dina cleared so quickly, beingat the hospital is the perfect alibi on camera when someone else finishing what you started, how have they not gone into missing fingerprints more, why I the doorknob wiped clean. to me this case isn't closed and anyone saying so is denying that there are unanswered questions. humans blame things so they don't have to face an issue. grow up, police need to have answers before closing a case.and Adam, oh Adam, you better fight for truth if you are innocent although I do not believe you, dina or nina are innocent.

#AmbassadorRecommends I enjoy Dr. Phil show and I saw parts of the Zahau case on television the other night. I appreciate Dr. Phil's insights and I hope this family does find the answers they seek.

I question whether Adam Shaknai could concoct this detailed and sophisticated crime in such a short span of time (on the same night that he arrived at the mansion). This murder was planned and executed with utmost care, control and deceit. And what about this loud party that supposedly occurred that night. This could spin a bevy of scenarios. Yet there remains that cryptic note in black painted on the bedroom door. So many questions with no conclusive answers, and no closer to the truth. Dr. Phil, you did a superlative analysis, and despite the tragic outcome, I enjoyed hearing you immensely. I could hardly stand waiting a week before the next episode aired.
