Sheriff warns Zahau attorney; case file may be opened
Attorney Anne Bremner told News 8 that she considers the letter a threat. Her co-counsel, attorney Marty Rudoy, agreed.
"I believe there's an implied threat in the letter that they would release information hurtful to the victim and her family," said Rudoy. "It has chilled our willingness to release relevant information to the media that would help the public determine what happened in this case."
In an emailed response to News 8, a Sheriff's spokesperson acknowledged there is personal information in the Sheriff's case file.
"We wanted to state in the strongest possible terms to Miss Bremner some of the materials contained (in the case files) are exceedingly sensitive and personal," wrote Sheriff's spokesperson Jan Caldwell.
"We will not release material we would rather keep confidential, unless compelled to do so in response to unfounded or inaccurate assertions."
Cummins, the local First Amendment attorney, called the language in the letter "heavy handed."
"Law enforcement has had the public opportunity to explain their investigation and their conclusions; and now that they've turned over the entire file to the family, they now want to control what the family's message is," Cummins said. "It's not only a chilling effect on their speech, but it's almost a governmental effort to control the information that is released to the public."

County pathologist excited about new role
Dr. Jonathan Lucas... is now San Diego County's chief deputy medical examiner
As a forensic pathologist for the county medical examiner's office, Dr. Jonathan Lucas has been a combination of scientist, detective and teacher, mining the bodies and stories of the silent dead for information that is relevant to the living.
Late last month, Lucas, 44, took over the second-highest job in the office. The agency evaluates many of the county's suddenly or unexpectedly dead ---- 2,700 cases last year ----- and determines how and why the people died.
Wagner said Lucas has proved his professional mettle during 10 years as a deputy medical examiner for the office. Most recently, Lucas created and presented the office's 2010 report on county deaths, and he handled the office's investigation of the death of Rebecca Zahau in Coronado, a case that made national news, Wagner said.
Wagner said a panel of county officials, which included representatives from the district attorney's office, Human Resources Department, Sheriff's Department and a public safety group, voted unanimously to promote Lucas.
The position was left open when the previous chief deputy medical examiner, Dr. Christina Stanley, left to become chief medical examiner for Rhode Island, Lucas said.
Lucas began work as a deputy medical examiner at the San Diego County medical examiner's office in October 2001, he said.
The job was everything he had hoped it would be, Lucas said. It offers him the intellectual exercise he craves; it involves lots of science and work with his hands; and he works with a lot of people ---- living as well as dead.
It also provides an excellent opportunity for public service, Lucas said. Not only is it important to families to know what caused a person's death and the circumstances under which he or she died, but it also is useful information to inform the public's understanding of health threats from diabetes to illicit drug trends.“It saddens me that 20 years after my sister Nicole’s murder, we are still seeing the same crimes, just different names, over and over again.”

– A search warrant unsealed revealed that the head of the Intensive Care Unit at Rady Children’s Hospital, Dr. Bradley Peterson, initially believed his patient, Max Shacknai, may have been suffocated before he fell down the stairs. In Max’s autopsy report, the medical examiner disagreed and determined the boy’s injuries were consistent with an accidental neck injury sustained in the fall.
– Homicide Lt. Larry Nesbit said it was not possible to recover deleted data from Zahau’s phone without dismantling the device, something investigators did not want to do. As a result, no new information was obtained from the re examination.
– Lt. Nesbit said the intact cell phone and other items belonging to the victim will be returned “in about one week” to the Zahau family attorney, Anne Bremner. The Seattle-based lawyer wants the cell phone and evidence in the case turned over as soon as possible.

Families Speak Out On Anniversary of Coronado Mansion Deaths
Contains updates on mansion renovations and quotes from RZ's attorneys about the case.
Rudoy told News 8 that the San Diego County Sheriff still has not returned some of Zahau's personal belongs to the family, like her camera, computer or cell phone. He said the Sheriff did make the cell phone available for an independent forensic inspection by an expert hired by the family. That forensic report still is not complete, Rudoy said.
