Adam Shacknai will not get new lie detector test
23 September, 2011
In a prepared statement, Shacknai said he understands that “the circumstances of this investigation do not warrant further review by the attorney general at this time.”
In a letter sent to Shacknai on Wednesday, the chief assistant attorney general said such a review of local law enforcement is only warranted “under very narrow circumstances,” including a conflict of interest or allegations of malfeasance.
Shacknai, a pharmaceutical industry executive, had requested the attorney general review to help “bring dignity and closure” for both his family and that of Rebecca Zahau, his girlfriend of two years.
“For someone with Paul Redden’s credentials and reputation, to say that he wasn’t able to draw a conclusion, but FELT Adam Shacknai was telling the truth, simply isn’t acceptable. Polygraphers don’t let emotions or gut feeling or observations to include body language, and verbalizations taint the results,” Trimarco says. Adam Shacknai needs to be given another lie detector test in connection with the death case involving Rebecca Zahau, according to famed polygraph expert Jack Tramarco,
