Was it suicide or foul play? On July 13, Rebecca Zahau, 32, was found dead in a historic California mansion owned by her boyfriend, Medicis Pharmaceuticals CEO Jonah Shacknai. Investigators say Shacknai’s brother found the woman nude, hanging from a second-story balcony off the guest room of the main house with her feet bound and hands tied behind her back. Zahau’s death occurred two days after Shacknai’s 6-year-old son reportedly fell from a second-floor banister while in her care. The boy died of his injuries three days after Rebecca's body was found. The San Diego County Sheriff's Department announced its finding that Rebecca committed suicide, but Zahau’s family says there are mysterious circumstances surrounding her death, and think she was murdered. Could Rebecca have bound her own hands and feet in that manner? Was the cryptic message painted on a nearby door a suicide note or a message from a killer? The family has asked for a reexamination of the facts, along with an independent autopsy, to be conducted by renowned forensic pathologist Dr. Cyril Wecht, who has claimed that ruling Zahau’s death a suicide was a hasty conclusion. Dr. Phil is by the family's side as they hear the latest autopsy results. Will these findings bring answers, or just more questions? If there is indication of foul play, who is responsible? And, can Rebecca’s loved ones find closure after their tragic loss?

It’s been dubbed a “house of horrors:” A handyman’s recent discovery of four people allegedly held captive in a tiny, dank sub-basement of a Philadelphia apartment building. The victims were said to be severely malnourished; one was chained to the boiler. One victim reportedly had two children while being held prisoner. The alleged ring leader, Linda Weston, 51, and two other suspects have been charged with kidnapping, assault, false imprisonment and other counts. Weston’s daughter has also been charged for allegedly imprisoning a relative in the same apartment building. How -- and for how long -- did these atrocities go unnoticed? Local reporter Walt Hunter joins Dr. Phil to share his insights into the investigation and two deaths that may be connected to this case. And, in an exclusive interview, Weston’s brother, Josh, and her son, Robert, speak out about the cruelty they say they suffered at Weston’s hands dating back 30 years. Josh says Weston shoved him into an oven and burned him severely, and both men say they witnessed her trap a man in a closet, listened to him scratch at the door every day until he slowly starved to death, a crime for which she served only eight years in prison. Plus, another shocking headline: Parents in a Washington suburb are facing charges for allegedly imprisoning and starving their adopted 16-year-old twins.

Why did it take so long for police and Child Protective Services to investigate?
