Allegedly Neil Nalepa has lived in the Arizona areas of Mesa and Phoenix, he had civil suits for money he owned for evictions at apartment complexes.
When the news about Rebecca’s dead was released media asked Neil about it, this is what he said..
“I’m just trying to wrap my head around it,”
Her family don’t believe it was suicide, even less after discoveries of tape around her legs was discovered, a piece of cloth on her mouth and the mysterious note in black pain left it the guest room door which had not been revealed until Neil told Coronado Police…
“She saved him, can you save her” according Neil that doesn’t sound like something she would say. It’s mysterious,” Nalepa said. “It’s not what Rebecca sounds like or talks like.”
And more doubts about it are in her family’s hearts who are 100 percent certain that the handwriting doesn’t match Rebecca’s; they added that Neil is devastated by the news and added they feel comfort by the support he gives them.
But Neil like Zahau’s family said Rebecca has no history of depression, friends back in where they lived where they were married can say the same thing about her, but police never asked them, Mr. Nalepa added he feels frustrated with the police and the direction they have taken about this case he doesn’t trust them anymore..
“We were pretty positive they were looking at the possibility of a homicide, It doesn’t look like they ever did. There are friends that knew her for years and years that [investigators] didn’t call and ask anything. It seems like someone just wants this to be sealed and done with,”
