CORONADO ISLAND, Calif. - A prominent valley multi-millionaire is caught in an investigation after his 32-year-old girlfriend dies at his historic, beach-front home in California.
Rebecca Nalepa was found Wednesday morning -- naked, with her arms and feet bound with orange cord. Nalepa was in a courtyard at the 27-room mansion, which is just a few feet from the Hotel del Coronado and the beach.
She was treated at the scene, but died in the courtyard, before she could be transported to a hospital.
Jonah Shacknai is the founder, chairman and CEO of Medicis Pharmaceutical Corp., which he began in 1988. Nalepa was Shacknai’s live-in girlfriend of 2 years.
His company is known for such successes as Restylane, a cosmetic wrinkle filler that is a competitor of Botox.

He lives in Scottsdale, Ariz., where his company is located. He was not at the Coronado home at the time the body was found.
Shacknai was visiting his 6-year-old son in a San Diego children’s hospital Thursday morning, where his son is in serious condition.
His son is in a coma after he had a bad fall on Monday at Shacknai’s California home. Neighbors said the boy fell from a balcony.
Police said there was nothing to indicate that the boy’s fall and the woman’s death are connected.
