Authorities have concluded that Max -- the son of Scottsdale, Ariz., pharmaceutical executive Jonah Shacknai -- accidentally plunged over a stairwell banister while in the care of his father's girlfriend, Rebecca Zahau.

Two days after the fall, Zahau's nude, bound body was found hanging in the mansion. That death was ruled a suicide, but her family is challenging the ruling.
