I am happy she was rescued, but I have a bad feeling that history will show she was a little complicit in the "mutual attraction". Her retainer found in his bedroom? That's a tell-tale sign. I used to only take my retainer out to brush it, to eat, to make out and sometimes I didn't sleep with it so it was on my bedside table. Why was hers there?

I read an article this morning that said they can tell they were tortured because the bodies were under tarps. Which means he covered them with tarps to beat on them with the crowbar so there wouldn't be so much blood splatter (on him, I guess). The tarps were melted into their hair, which means they were in place before the fire was started. It made sense the way they worded it in that article, I'll go look for it.

I guess they are all just saying tortured because mom was beaten with the crowbar and had a lot of blood around her head. I'm not sure if she was shot also or not.

I found this article though which is again saying the search warrant items were seized from HIS property. Stupid media.

"As part of their search, investigators seized cameras, computer equipment, photos and other items from his sprawling property near the Mexican border."

Letters from Hannah to DiMaggio were found in his home. No details about what was in the letters. Inquiring minds want to know. Used condoms were found, too.

Another bombshell on Dr. Drew tonight:
Boxes of condoms, 2 used condoms, letters from Hannah to Dimaggio, handcuffs, etc. found in Dimaggio's garage. The house was destroyed by fire, the garage was not.

Hannah Anderson braves the cameras for first time since ordeal to thank supporters
Abduction victim was seen attending a fundraiser for her family, making it her first  public outing since being freed less than a week ago
Comes the same day as new search warrants made public that list piles of evidence that the first responders collected at DiMaggio's burnt house
'Letters from Hanna' among the evidence at her kidnapper's house, along with 'possible blunt force weapons' and bomb making materials
Hannah's mother Christina had a DNA test in her burnt car, raising more questions about their relationship


Abduction victim Hannah Anderson has been seen in public for the first time since she was freed following a six-day, multi-state manhunt and new search warrants reveal new aspects of the investigation.
The 16-year-old has spoken to friends and strangers over social media and released a number of pictures of herself via her Instagram account but the first time she was seen publicly came Thursday evening when she went to a fundraiser for her family.
Her mother Christina and 6-year-old brother Ethan were killed and their bodies were set on fire by their family friend Jim DiMaggio, who 'tricked' them into coming to his home and then killed the mother and brother before running off with Hannah and being shot dead six days later.

Suddenly silent: Hannah did not speak on Thursday and she has set all of her social media accounts to private

Hannah was only briefly seen walking from their car into the back entrance of a San Diego restaurant where the fundraiser was being held.
Hannah's appearance at the fundraiser comes the same day as a growing list of evidence recovered at DiMaggio's house has been revealed, including firebombs, military assault rifle ammunition, and handwritten 'letters from Hanna' to DiMaggio.
One of the most puzzling pieces added to the ongoing investigation into this crime is that a DNA test kit was found in the burnt out car that once belonged to Christina Anderson.
NBC News reports that other items listed in the search warrants released today include 'crow bars and other weapons, instruments and objects capable of inflicting blunt force trauma', as well as bomb-making materials like gas cans, various types of duct tape and arson wire.
A number of personal items that could potentially be used for DNA collection were also gathered, including clothing and toothbrushes but also used condoms.

The meaning behind the items was not listed, as emergency responders appear to have grabbed as many items as possible on August 5 as they tried to get a better idea of Hannah's relationship with DiMaggio as they were missing.
Today, Hannah did not make a statement to the awaiting press, but her father Brett Anderson came outside and made a statement, saying that his daughter was happy to be home.
'She's with her family and of course with some friends and she's just happy to be here,' he said Thursday.
'Hannah sends her love and she keeps moving day by day.'
The fundraiser was largely attended by relatives and friends within their neighborhood, and Mr Anderson cited their strong support as helping them through.
'This is a small community that we're a part of and they really came together... This is how Lakeside rolls,' he said.
He also said that he has spoken with the four horseback riders who spotted Hannah in the Idaho woods with DiMaggio and called police.
'It was a chance encounter but it did save my daughter's life,' he said.

The fundraiser came the day after a search warrant revealed that Hannah's mother and brother were both killed and tortured before DiMaggio's cabin set on fire.
A police report that describes the scene that firefighters found when they responded to the call about DiMaggio's cabin being burnt to ashes in Boulevard, California on August 5th.
They found the bodies covered with tarp, and a crowbar lying next to Christina.
When the responders went to the garage to check for more victims, they found the Anderson's deceased dog and noted that it had blood near its head.
The details surrounding the nature of the bodies are scant, but the fact that the humans were draped with tarp before the firefighters got there- and that there was blood coming from the dog's head- implies that they were all killed before the fire ravaged the home.

The used condoms, handcuffs, letters from Hannah, etc. were all found in Dimaggio's garage which did not burn down. Detailed list here:

Handwritten note & 'Letters from Hanna' found in DiMaggio's home

Posted: Aug 15, 2013 3:15 PM CDT
Updated: Aug 15, 2013 6:23 PM CDT

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) -- San Diego Sheriff's detectives found a handwritten note in the burned-out home of James DiMaggio; the man who was shot and killed by FBI agents in Idaho after allegedly kidnapping a Lakeside teenager on August 4.

The content of the note was not revealed in the latest search warrant released Thursday at the request of News 8, and it is unknown if the note is related to the kidnapping of Hannah Anderson, 16.

In an emailed response to News 8, Sheriff's spokesperson Jan Caldwell said, "Many portions of this investigation cannot be discussed. Sorry this is one if them."

Also found in the home were "Letters from Hanna" (sic), apparently written by the teen victim, and which were not detailed in the warrant.

The letters were denoted in the warrant as "D&C Letters from Hanna" (sic), indicating the documents initially were taken by detectives to prove DiMaggio had "dominion and control" (D&C) over the home and property.

The warrant reveals for the first time that Sheriff's bomb and arson investigators believe DiMaggio, 40, used incendiary devices to set two separate fires: one in the main house where the body of Hannah's 8-year-old brother, Ethan Anderson, was discovered; and one in the garage where the body of the children's mother, Christina Anderson, 44, was found under a green tarp.

"There were two distinct and non-contiguous fires," the warrant reads. "Based on this fact, there had to be multiple fire starts and multiple fire starts is a primary indication of the act of arson."

The warrant said several incendiary devices, and an "arson wire" were found at the site.

In addition, a crowbar and blood stains were found next to the body of Christina Anderson.

"It currently appears that the crow bar could be an instrumental weapon used in the homicide," according to Sheriff Detective Troy DuGal, who gave details to a judge in the search warrant's affidavit.

The warrant also contains a nine-page, detailed list of every item taken from DiMaggio's home at 2071 Ross Avenue in Boulevard.

Some of the items listed include:

Handwritten note
D&C Letters from Hanna
Incendiary device
Arson Wire
Workbench (Arson related items)
Handcuff boxes
Two used condoms
Balloons
Wire & connectors
Yosemite camping printout
Cartridge
Projectile
Rocket engine package
Box of Winchester 7.62 x 39 ammo
Two empty boxes of .22 ammo
Two containers for model rockets
Heat lamp
Twisted pair wiring
Various empty boxes for camping equipment
Bullet poppers
Cut shotgun shells
Blue sleeping bag
Underwear
Baseball bat
Mule tape
Small Propane bottle & torch
Crowbar
Two pieces of cut extension cord
Small caliber ammo
Gray roll of tape
Clear plastic tarp
Roll of duct tape
Green tarp
Master lock
Shotgun primer
Gas can
Cigarette butt
Empty ammo boxes

Also a DNA kit was found in the mom's car. Wondering whether someone thought Ethan was maybe Dimaggio's child instead of Hannah's dad's? What a messed up family this is turning out to be.

DNA kit, this IS getting strange. Wonder if we will ever get to read those Letters From Hannah. I am starting to think that LE is never going to give us this whole story cos Hannah was possibly involved w/ DiMaggio in a willing kind of way. Not saying she knew anything about the killings and arson. Just maybe she was purposely having a teenage crush type thing with DiMaggio. Hey, you never know.
The whole country feels so bad for Hannah, so many people prayed and looked for her, the Amber Alert system got a good workout, now what will happen if we find out she was having a torrid teenage romance with him, etc etc. And due to that her mom, brother and dog are now dead.
I tell you who I feel sorry for. The Dad. He's a special kind of something to actually trust another man to look after his family while he is in another state working. Too trusting or maybe under the spell of this DiMaggio guy who had designs on maybe the wife at first for years and then later the daughter. Maybe Ethan WAS Uncle Jims kid. Oops. Maybe the family secrets will come out and it will be NOTHING like we all thought it was.

If there is anything incriminating in letter's, text messages, voice messages, etc I would guess that Hannah's feeling like she's sitting on a time bomb ready to go off at any minute.

Normal San Diego County sheriff's officials maintained Friday that they still considered the teen a victim

Post by Nama on Fri Aug 16, 2013 10:17 pm

Although search warrants in the Hannah Anderson case revealed extensive communication between the 16-year-old and the man who allegedly kidnapped her after killing her mother and brother, San Diego County sheriff's officials maintained Friday that they still considered the teen a victim.
The search warrants provided some insight into the investigation, including the communication between Hannah and DiMaggio. Letters from Hannah were among the items seized from his home, the documents showed, and investigators said the teen and DiMaggio "called each other approximately 13 times" before their cellphones were shut off about 4 p.m. Aug. 4.

The documents did not specify during what time period the calls occurred. They also did not detail what the letters -- along with a handwritten note that was seized from DiMaggio's property -- said.

Normal Family of Hannah Anderson's alleged abductor looks for explanation

Post by Nama on Sat Aug 17, 2013 3:27 pm

Revelations about how James Lee DiMaggio allegedly carried out the abduction of teen Hannah Anderson after killing her mother and brother have been tough to square with a man known for his loyalty, a family spokesman says.

Another round of search warrants released in San Diego on Thursday suggested that within hours of finding DiMaggio’s burned-out house and garage in rural Boulevard, investigators suspected him of setting separate blazes, possibly with timing devices.

The fires on the property in eastern San Diego County were discovered late in the afternoon of Aug. 4. The fires were set separately, possibly with an accelerant, arson specialists said in seeking one warrant. One fire could not have migrated to the other location, they said.

Once the warrants were issued by a Superior Court judge, investigators found what is called an "arson wire" used to time the ignition of a fire.

But Andrew Spanswick, a spokesman for DiMaggio’s family, told The Times this week that the narrative of a man bent on death and destruction was a far cry from the person described by his sister as the “kindest, sweetest soul that you could ever imagine meeting.”

In an interview with KGTV-TV (Channel 10) in the days immediately after Hannah disappeared, DiMaggio’s sister, Lora Robinson, pleaded with the public to resist judgment as few details were known at the time.

She said the media narrative of a man obsessed with a 16-year-old he’d known from birth was off-base.

“They were great friends, they’ve known each other for years,” Robinson told the San Diego ABC affiliate. “My children played with Hannah when she was little … they had a lot of good times together.

“He took care of them as if they were his own.”

Robinson, her husband and two teenage children have since stayed out of the media spotlight, referring all interview requests to Spanswick, who was friends with DiMaggio for seven years.

After trying to defend her brother against accusations of being a sexual predator, Robinson and her family fielded death threats, Spanswick said.

“We’re trying to keep them safe -- place them in a separate environment,” he said. “They were being hounded by the media.”

Spanswick also defended DiMaggio’s relationship with Hannah, saying it was paternal, not sexual.

“Clearly, his intentions have always been to be a father figure,” he said.

In seclusion, DiMaggio’s family is now trying to come to terms with a new narrative that not only includes allegations of kidnapping Hannah, but also the brutal murders of her mother, Christina Anderson, and 8-year-old brother, Ethan.

An investigator alleged in a search warrant that DiMaggio tortured them both, although he did not elaborate how.

Spanswick said that while DiMaggio's family isn't trying to excuse what happened, it's important to them to try to find some sort of explanation to achieve a sense of closure.

“Condemning doesn’t mean you shouldn’t still look for an explanation,” he said.

Also included in the search warrants were revelations that DiMaggio and Hannah had 13 exchanges over the phone prior to her alleged kidnapping.

Investigators also reported finding empty boxes of ammunition, camping gear, a camping map of Yosemite National Park and a note whose contents were not disclosed.

The warrants suggest that by the time the fires started on his property, the 40-year-old DiMaggio had already abducted Hannah and was speeding northward in his blue Nissan, using death threats to keep her from trying to escape.

After a six-day multistate manhunt, it all ended Saturday in a deadly confrontation with FBI agents at DiMaggio's campsite in an Idaho wilderness.

An Idaho coroner this week said DiMaggio was shot “at least” five times and died at the scene.

Thanks, Nite. They were really out there in desolate country! I wonder if she would have been found floating in the river if they hadn't run into those horseback riders, or if he had planned to work his way north to Canada with her on that river?

Post by samgoodwin on Sat Aug 17, 2013 11:34 pm

Services are set for Aug. 24th for mom, Ethan (and the dog)..

and we finally get some info on mom and Ethan in this article!

EAST COUNTY — The Lakeside mother and her 8-year-old son who were found slain in the torched home of a family friend will be mourned in a joint memorial service set for next Saturday.

The discovery of Christina and Ethan Anderson’s bodies at James Lee DiMaggio’s Boulevard house two weeks ago touched off a nationwide Amber Alert for Anderson’s older daughter, 16-year-old Hannah, who was later rescued from DiMaggio in the Idaho wilderness.

With Hannah now safe at home, the family can turn to honoring the memory of her mother and brother.

The Aug. 24 service will be held at 11 a.m. at Guardian Angels Catholic Church, 9310 Dalehurst Road in Santee. The ceremony will be open to the public, followed by a wake in the church hall.

It is the same church where Christina Anderson, 44, received catechism as a girl, her mother, Sara Britt, told U-T San Diego in a phone interview from her Santee home.

Anderson was born in Columbus, Ga., where her father was stationed in the Army. She was born two months prematurely, prompting the nickname “Tiny Tina.”

“She was born weak and small and grew to be a very strong, successful woman and loving mother,” Britt said.

At 7, she moved to San Diego’s East County with her newly divorced mom. Anderson graduated from Santana High School in Santee and pursued a career in medical technology.

Her passion for treating people grew when a family member suffered burns over 85 percent of her body.

“Tina would go there on her lunch hour and help massage her and help her heal that way,” Britt recalled. “She was always there for everyone, going the extra mile.”

For many years, she ran her own holistic massage and healing practice in downtown San Diego, called Tina’s Therapy. The storefront shuttered when the economy soured, but Anderson continued to see clients.

She worked until recently at Alvarado Medical Center, Britt said. She was separated from her husband and the children’s father, Brett, who had recently moved to Tennessee.

She spent much of her time cheering her kids on — Hannah on the dance floor and Ethan on the Pop Warner football field, where he played both offense and defense for the Lakeside Longhorns.

All three became avid fans of NASCAR great Jimmie Johnson, an East County native.

Ethan could often be found at his favorite fishing hole, Lindo Lake in Lakeside, or riding his Razor scooter, his grandmother said.

“He wanted to be a professional fisherman. He would fish all day every day if he could,” she said.

At home, the Lindo Lakes Elementary fourth-grader liked to help his mother cook everything from pizza to sushi.

“When I’d see Ethan, the first thing I’d say is, ‘Who loves you, baby?’ And he’d say, ‘You do, Nana,’” Britt remembered. “Ethan has always been our honey bunny, and always will be.”

The family, who knew DiMaggio as “Uncle Jim,” was apparently “tricked” to go over to his house to say goodbye before he moved out of state, Hannah wrote on her ask.fm social networking site.

DiMaggio, 40, rigged the house and garage with incendiary devices to burn, according to search warrants. The bodies of the mother and son were found in the fire. Christina Anderson was possibly bludgeoned with a crowbar, the warrants state.

The Anderson family dog, Cali, was also found dead from a gunshot wound. The pup will be included in next Saturday’s memorial service, Britt said.

DiMaggio kidnapped Hannah and was on the run for a week before he was fatally shot in a confrontation with FBI agents in Idaho.

Mourners of the family are asked to send donations to an Anderson family fund in lieu of flowers. Donations can be made at wepay.com/donations/andersonamberalert.

A fundraiser held Thursday at the Boll Weevil in Lakeside to help with funeral costs garnered $4,000 in raffles alone, the restaurant’s manager said Friday. A complete tally won’t be released until next week.

The Aug. 24 service will be held at 11 a.m. at Guardian Angels Catholic Church, 9310 Dalehurst Road in Santee. The ceremony will be open to the public, followed by a wake in the church hall.

They've already raised over $4500. just on this one site mentioned above. The guy who started it plans to just give the money to the dad to use for whatever he wants. They're even getting some snarky comments about Hannah on there though.

Now the fund is well over $10k. I hope Mr Anderson can find some peace someday.
The article says the Andersons were separated, but that's not correct is is? I thought he had moved to Tennessee for a job. But were he and Hannah's mom really separated? (not just by distance)

Yes, Hippy, I read that they had just become separated in the past two months. Evidently there were problems in the marriage. At first they made it sound like he was just out of state for his job. The separation was mentioned over the weekend by a couple news sites.

Dimaggio left $112,000. life insurance money to Hannah's paternal grandmother! I bet his sister and Hannah's dad are thrilled with that. Dimaggio did live at the grandma's house while his own log cabin was being built, maybe he knew the money would go for Hannah?

SAN DIEGO (AP) — A man who died in a shootout with FBI agents after kidnapping a 16-year-old girl and killing her mother and brother named a member of the victims' family as his life insurance beneficiary, a spokesman for the man's family said Monday.

James Lee DiMaggio left $112,000 to Hannah Anderson's paternal grandmother, said Andrew Spanswick. He didn't know why but believes it was for the benefit of Hannah, the girl abducted by DiMaggio.

Hannah was rescued in the FBI shootout on Aug. 10 in the Idaho wilderness and returned home to San Diego.

DiMaggio, 40, had been like an uncle to the Anderson children and the father's best friend.

DiMaggio named Bernice Anderson as the sole beneficiary of his employer-issued life insurance policy in 2011, substituting her for his sister Lora Robinson, the lone survivor of his immediate family, Spanswick said.

DiMaggio lived with Bernice Anderson for about two years before buying a house in 2009 in Boulevard, about 65 miles east of San Diego, Spanswick said.

Authorities found the remains of Christina Anderson, 44, and Ethan Anderson, 8, in the Boulevard house after it was set on fire.

DiMaggio's sister called Hannah's father, Brett Anderson, on Friday to tell him about the life insurance payment.

"They had a long conversation about their mutual loss, trying to make sense of what happened, and neither of them had an explanation," Spanswick said. "Brett seemed to recognize that Lora was as much a victim in this as everyone else. He wished her the best."

A request for comment from Brett Anderson, made through family spokeswoman Stacy Hess, was not immediately answered.

DiMaggio worked as a telecommunications technician at The Scripps Research Institute in San Diego. Spokeswoman Jan Coury declined to comment.

Steven Weisbart, chief economist at the industry-backed Insurance Information Institute, said insurers generally won't challenge a claim unless the beneficiary is suspected of involvement in the death.

Investigators have given no indication that DiMaggio had any accomplices.

"Pretty much as long you're dead, the insurance company has very little opportunity to deny the claim," Weisbart said.

Lora Robinson has taken possession of her brother's cat, Princess, from Hannah Anderson, Spanswick said. DiMaggio, a cat-lover, took Princess while on the run, and the cat was reunited with Hannah after the rescue.

Snipped from the article Sam posted above
"Lora Robinson has taken possession of her brother's cat, Princess, from Hannah Anderson, Spanswick said. DiMaggio, a cat-lover, took Princess while on the run, and the cat was reunited with Hannah after the rescue."


So basically this proves that Hannah lied (Can't even imagine why she would.) to the people she was chatting with on ask.me.com after she was returned to the custody of her father.

James DiMaggio's family wants paternity tests, believes he is father of Hannah and Ethan Anderson

SAN DIEGO - Kidnapping and murder suspect James DiMaggio left behind a dark legacy and a $112,000 life insurance policy to the family of his alleged victims.

Andrew Spanswick, a spokesman for DiMaggio's family, said the money will go to Bernice Anderson, the paternal grandmother of 16-year-old Hannah Anderson and her 8-year-old brother Ethan.

"He expected the grandmother to take care of the two children with the money. He stated he did not want it to go to their parents because they were having marital problems and he didn't trust them with the money on their own," said Spanswick.

According to Spanswick, the DiMaggio family is not contesting the policy, but they do want paternity tests conducted to determine if James DiMaggio is the father of Hannah and Ethan.

"We are requesting DNA samples from Hannah and anything they can get from Ethan. There are rumors Jim was the children's real father. The parents didn't marry until 2002. We think it's strange he left them so much money with no explanation," Spanswick said.

DiMaggio's sister, Lora, was removed as the beneficiary in 2011.

Spanswick said Hannah's recent behavior is also raising suspicion.

"Some things that Hannah is saying on her Facebook doesn't add up so far; her latest posts are disturbing," Spanswick said without elaborating further.

10News asked La Jolla life insurance agent Craig Gussin if DiMaggio's alleged crimes would impact the policy and payout in any way.

"This is a legal document. After the contract is two years old, it's pretty untouchable. They will get the money," said Gussin.

Gussin said if the check and policy is legitimate, a payout to the Andersons could come in 30-45 days.

On Tuesday, San Diego County Sheriff's Department spokeswoman Jan Caldwell said DiMaggio used a timer to set fire to his Boulevard home -- where 44-year-old Christina Anderson and young Ethan were found dead.

Caldwell also said that DiMaggio was spotted on a Border Patrol surveillance camera about 20 hours before his home went up in flames on Aug. 4. He was seen inside his Nissan Versa with Hannah at a westbound highway checkpoint.

Authorities recovered an incendiary device and "arson wire" at DiMaggio's home.

DiMaggio died in a shootout with FBI agents in the Idaho wilderness six days after the fire. Hannah was rescued and returned to California.

On Saturday, Aug. 24, at 11 a.m., a memorial service will be held for Christina and Ethan Anderson at the Guardian Angel Roman Catholic Church (9310 Dalehurst Road, Santee).

The service will be open to the public.

Ethan's Father? Who can say...
Hannah's Father? Would he have told his daughter. "I'd date you if I were your age?"
Who can say?

There are plenty of fathers that have romantic feelings for their daughters. DeMaggio, if he is Hannah's bio father, wouldn't be the first. I wonder if the DNA test will be allowed?

Off topic but, Am I the only one who believes Hannah Anderson was with her kidnapper willingly?
Not saying she wanted her mom and brother dead, but she appears to me to have been with him by choice.

Normal Hannah Anderson's Father Dismisses DNA Request

Post by NiteSpinR on Thu Aug 22, 2013 4:38 am

August 22, 2013

As a 16-year-old girl breaks her silence about how she was kidnapped by a family friend accused of killing her mother and brother, the girl's father is striking back at the suggestion that the suspect fathered his children.

Brett Anderson finds it "disgusting" that the family of James Lee DiMaggio is mentioning the suspect as the possible father of Hannah and Ethan Anderson, said Stacy Hess, an Anderson family spokeswoman.

DiMaggio, 40, didn't meet Brett and Christina Anderson until Christina was six months pregnant with Hannah, Hess said. And investigators used Brett Anderson's DNA to confirm the identity of 8-year-old Ethan Anderson, whose remains were found in the rubble of DiMaggio's burned home, she said.

The exchange of words over families for the suspect and victim came as Hannah Anderson ended her public silence since she was rescued Aug. 10 by FBI agents during a shootout in the Idaho wilderness that killed DiMaggio. Hannah gave her first news interview since her rescue to the NBC "Today" show, which was scheduled to air Thursday.

"In the beginning I was a victim, but now knowing everyone out there is helping me I consider myself a survivor instead," she told NBC. "My mom raised me to be strong."

Andrew Spanswick, a spokesman for the DiMaggio family, said rumors have circulated on social media that DiMaggio fathered the children and that it was "a little strange" that the suspect named the girl's paternal grandmother as his life insurance beneficiary.
Lora Robinson, DiMaggio's sister and lone survivor of his immediate family, collected DNA from her brother and wants samples from Hannah Anderson and her brother to determine paternity, Spanswick said. She has not yet asked for the samples but intends to at a later date.

"The biggest issue is, I think, that Lora wants closure on the case," Spanswick said. "As Lora has heard these rumors, she would like to confirm whether they are true or not."

DiMaggio was like an uncle to the Anderson children and Brett Anderson's best friend. Hannah was rescued Aug. 10 when FBI agents killed DiMaggio in the Idaho wilderness, ending a massive search that spanned much of the western United States and parts of Canada and Mexico.

Investigators say DiMaggio escaped with Hannah and killed 44-year-old Christina Anderson and her son, whose bodies were discovered after DiMaggio set fire to his home Aug. 4 in Boulevard, a tiny town 65 miles east of San Diego.

DiMaggio named Hannah's grandmother, Bernice Anderson, as the sole beneficiary of his employer-issued life insurance policy, making her eligible to receive $112,000, according to Spanswick, who believes the money was intended for Hannah. If the money was intended for Hannah then why didn't DiMaggio just name her as the beneficiary to begin with? I think he left the money to the person he named Hannah's grandmother. He trekked off into the wilderness with Hannah and IMO planned to take both of their lives there. Why would someone think the money was meant for Hannah if it was truly his plan to kill her?

San Diego County Sheriff Bill Gore has called Hannah "a victim in every sense of the word." He has declined to discuss a possible motive and investigators haven't publicly addressed other aspects of the case, including why the family went to DiMaggio's home, how Christina and Ethan Anderson died, the nature of letters from Hannah that were discovered in DiMaggio's home and how Hannah was treated in captivity.

DiMaggio used a timer to set the fire, giving him a 20-hour jump on authorities, San Diego County Sheriff's Department Jan Caldwell said.

EXCLUSIVE: Hannah Anderson speaks out, reveals new details of kidnapping

Kate Snow and Erin McClamNBC News

10 minutes ago

Hannah Anderson spoke out Thursday for the first time since her abduction riveted the country, thanking her rescuers and offering an explanation for text messages and letters that she exchanged with her captor.

In an exclusive conversation with TODAY, Anderson, 16, said the texts with captor James Lee DiMaggio were to make arrangements with DiMaggio, a family friend, to pick her up from cheerleading camp.

“And he didn’t know the address or what — like, where I was. So I had to tell him the address and tell him that I was gonna be in the gym and not in front of the school,” she said. “Just so he knew where to come get me.”

And she said she exchanged letters a year ago with DiMaggio because she and her mother weren’t getting along and DiMaggio helped her work through the turmoil.

“Me and him would talk about how to deal with it,” she said. “And I’d tell him how I felt about it. And he helped me through it. They weren’t anything bad. They’re just to help me through tough times.”

DiMaggio abducted the girl and rigged his own house to burst into flames, killing Hannah’s mother and little brother, on Aug. 3, authorities have said. DiMaggio died in a shootout with FBI agents in Idaho a week later after horseback riders spotted the two.

Hannah, who attends high school outside San Diego, told TODAY that she had no idea there was a nationwide search for her — in fact, she said, she had never heard of an Amber Alert.

“I know it helped people find me,” she said. “And it made them, like, realize that it’s hard to find people out there. But with everyone’s support, it can help a lot.”

The sharp eyes of the four horseback riders — one of whom called the sighting “one chance in a trillion” — led to her rescue from a place in the Idaho backcountry called the River of No Return, 1,000 miles from home.

To them, she said: “I’d like to say thank you. Because without them, I probably wouldn’t be here right now.”

She extended her thanks to the sheriff, the FBI, other authorities and everyone else who put in time to find her.

“And my dad and my friends and my family and just all my supporters that helped spread the word in the news,” she said. “Because the news helped get out there fast.”

Hannah was reunited with her father after the rescue. Her family has denied suggestions that DiMaggio might have been the father of both her and her little brother, 8-year-old Ethan.

The denial came after a spokesman for DiMaggio’s family said that he left a $112,000 life insurance policy to Hannah and Ethan’s paternal grandmother. The spokesman said that DiMaggio’s family wants DNA tests to determine paternity.


San Diego police said earlier this week they will not reveal a motive for the double murder and kidnapping because they do not want to make Hannah a victim for a second time. She considers herself a survivor.

A memorial service is set Saturday for Hannah’s mother and brother and will be open to the public. The church, in the San Diego suburb of Santee, is bracing for an overflow crowd.

In the conversation with TODAY, Hannah struggled as she talked about her little brother — “He had a really big heart,” she said before breaking up with emotion — and said her mother instilled in her a strong spirit that is helping her through tough times.

She said she is trying to get her life back together as daughter, a dancer and a high school student, and wanted to set the record straight.

“You are who you are,” she said. “And — you shouldn’t let people change that. And you have your own opinion on yourself, and other people’s opinion shouldn't matter.”


The remarks with TODAY were Hannah’s first to a news organization. Days after the rescue, she wrote at length on a social-media site that allows people to ask and answer each other’s questions.

In that session, on the site Ask.fm, one questioner asked whether she was happier that DiMaggio was shot or whether she would have wanted to see him serve life in prison. She answered: “Shot him. He deserved what he got.”

She also said: “He had a gun and threatened to kill me and anyone who tried to help.”

Questioners from as far away as France and Hawaii showered Hannah with compliments about her physical appearance and asked her typical teenage questions about likes and dislikes.

She said, for example, that her favorite singer was Ke$ha, gave the name of her nail salon and said that if she could date anyone in the world it would be teen-heartthrob actor Zac Efron.

Hannah told TODAY that she wanted to speak before the funeral to offer thanks, to bring attention to Amber Alerts, and to put to rest speculation that she was anything other than a survivor.

She said that she will tell her entire story, but that now is not the time.

Dont have a link but on the today show her dad said they met Dimaggio when his wife was 6 months pregnant and they used his DNA to identify Ethan, so if this is the truth the paternity rumors are untrue.

Cali. girl says she texted man before abduction

Posted: Aug 22, 2013 3:31 AM CDT
Updated: Aug 22, 2013 11:32 AM CDT


Hannah Anderson, 16, said she texted with alleged kidnapper and murderer James DiMaggio (pictured) before he took her. (Source: San Diego County Sheriff/CNN)
By ELLIOT SPAGAT
Associated Press
SAN DIEGO (AP) - A California teen whose mother and brother were killed by a family friend who allegedly abducted her said on national television Thursday that she once confided with him about troubles with her mother and exchanged text messages before she disappeared about where he should pick her up from cheerleading practice.

Police say James Lee DiMaggio abducted Hannah Anderson and fled to the Idaho wilderness before he was killed by authorities.

In an interview on the NBC "Today" show, Hannah didn't say how her family died, describe her interactions with DiMaggio during a massive manhunt, or offer details to explain why DiMaggio might have unleashed such violence.

In her first news interview since her dramatic rescue Aug. 10, Hannah said she wrote to DiMaggio about a year ago as he guided her through a rough patch with her mother.

"Me and him would talk about how to deal with it, and I'd tell him how I felt about it, and he'd help me through it. They weren't anything bad. They were just to help me through tough times," she said.

Hannah said she exchanged text messages with DiMaggio before she allegedly was kidnapped Aug. 3 - correcting a search warrant that said the pair exchanged about 13 phone calls.

"The phone calls weren't phone calls. They were texts because he was picking me up from cheer camp and he didn't know the address or what, like, where I was, so I had to tell him."

Jan Caldwell, a spokeswoman for the San Diego County Sheriff's Department, didn't immediately respond to questions about the content of the letters and text messages. Investigators previously declined to discuss them.

Hannah's comments to NBC underscore the close relationship she had with DiMaggio, 40, who was like an uncle to her and her brother and her father's best friend.

Hannah's disappearance triggered a search for DiMaggio that spanned much of the western United States and parts of Canada and Mexico.

Christina Anderson, 44, was found dead near a crowbar and what appeared to be a pool of blood in the garage of DiMaggio's home in Boulevard, a tiny town about 65 miles east of San Diego. The remains of Ethan Anderson, 8, were discovered in the rubble.

Hannah went online barely two days after she was rescued and answered hundreds of questions on social media, including some that described harrowing details of her ordeal. She said she was surprised by some cruel responses she got.

But she had a straightforward answer for why she talked online: "It just helps me grieve ... I'm going to go on it. I'm a teenager."

She was at turns defiant and shaken in the NBC interview, declaring that she's a survivor and plans to try to out for varsity gymnastics this year but breaking down when asked to describe her younger brother.

"In the beginning, I was a victim," she said, "but now knowing everyone out there was helping I consider myself a survivor instead."

Hannah said the ordeal drew her closer to her father, who flew to San Diego from his Tennessee home after the search was launched. During the interview, she showed off newly painted nails, pink in honor of her mother and blue for her brother with their names on her toes.

Of her brother, she said, "He had a really big heart," before she choked up and wiped away tears. Her mother was "strong-hearted and very tough."

"She knew how to handle things," Hannah said.

San Diego County Sheriff Bill Gore has called Hannah "a victim in every sense of the word." He has declined to discuss a possible motive and investigators haven't publicly addressed other aspects of the case, including why the family went to DiMaggio's home, the nature of letters from Hannah that were discovered in DiMaggio's home and how Hannah was treated in captivity.

DiMaggio set fire to his home using a timer, giving him a 20-hour jump on authorities, authorities say.

Horseback riders who spotted the pair in the Idaho wilderness alerted authorities, providing the key break to her rescue. Hannah told NBC that she probably wouldn't be home if it weren't for them and also thanked investigators and members of the public who assisted in the search for her.

I can't believe she couldn't come up with anything nice to say about her mom other than that she was tough and knew how to handle things. She seemed genuinely sad about her brother. (MOO) It sounds to me like Hannah complained a lot to Uncle Jim about how she didn't get along with mom. Maybe in his messed up mind he felt he was rescuing Hannah from her "evil" mom or something.

smh. She's going to be on Dateline tomorrow night too. So much for needing privacy.

Jeanine Driver (body language expert) had some interesting comments about Hannah's interview on Dr. Drew tonight. She pointed out that when Hannah said "there was nothing BAD in those letters to Uncle Jim" she was shaking her head from side to side which means "no" or not true." And when Hannah spoke about her disagreements with her mom, she wrinkled her nose as if mom was "distasteful" to her.
