DAYS after his girlfriend Rebecca Nalepa's nude body was found hanging from a balcony at his huge mansion, multimillionaire Jonah Shacknai's faces more tragedy. Now, his young son Max  has died. 
A bizarre few days which cops have called 'very suspicious' started when the six-year-old, known as Maxie, to family and friends, fell down the luxury San Diego property's grand staircase on Friday.
Nalepa, 32, who had been in a relationship with Shacknai for two years, was reportedly supposed to be looking after him at the time. 
That very night a party was held at the 27 room, home and the following morning her body was found, hung with orange electrical cord, her hands and feet gagged.  
Her body was discovered by Shacknai's brother, Adam, who then cut her down before calling the cops.  
Sheriff's investigators have not established any connection between the two deaths, and have not determined if Ms Nalepa was a crime victim and have made no arrests. 
They said they have not ruled out suicide Sheriff's Captain Tim Curran has called the death "very bizarre."
He added: "It appears to be some type of a violent death, and I'm not going to compromise the integrity of the investigation by giving anything more than that at this time."
In joint a statement with ex-wife Dina Romano, the boy's mother, Mr Shacknai said: "With great sadness, Dina and I convey the tragic passing of our beloved son, Max (affectionately known as Maxie).
"Despite heroic efforts on the part of paramedics and hospital staff, he was unable to recover from the injuries suffered early last week. His loving, kind and vibrant spirit will be forever in our hearts and those whom he touched every day."
