Although her death is way too weird he is not at least not for now, police said Adam Shacknai has been very cooperative and experts said that in their years of experience they know that a person who is hanged ha about 4 to 8 minutes in which someone can resuscitate them, perhaps Adam thought he could do that.
“I know from past history of suicide cases that somebody can be revived between four to eight minutes after such an incident so maybe he thought she could be saved and that is why he cut her down. But this is such an unusual case in such an up-market area like Coronado and there are clearly still a lot of unanswered questions. The detectives involved in the case will be working around the clock to solve this mystery.”
Adam Shacknai lives in the area of Midtown Memphis area, he flew from his home to his brother’s side as soon as he heard about Maxie’s accident..
