Shacknai’s 6-year-old son Max was seriously injured after falling down the stairs in the mansion. The boy was rushed to the hospital where he fell into a coma but a few days later he died from the injuries.

Two days after Max fell on the stairs Shacknai’s girlfriend. Rebecca Nalepa was found hanging nude from a second story balcony in the mansion, her hands and feet bound.

Shacknai, CEO of Scottsdale-based Medicis Pharmaceuticals, opened a conference call Monday by offering a “personal note of appreciation” to shareholders who had “provided me with wonderful encouragement.”

“We have undertaken some tragedies, some losses, that one couldn’t imagine experiencing in a lifetime,” he said.

Shacknai hinted at the two tragedies but never actually mentioned his son or girlfriend by name.

“I expect very quickly to return to the normal work schedule at the office. School commences momentarily in Arizona, at this time I’ve really been with the kids waiting for school to begin, but as soon as that happens I expect to be on my normal calendar in the office and doing all the things I had done previously,” the millionaire stated.
