The sister of James DiMaggio — the California man who was fatally shot by police after abducting his friend's 16-year-old daughter, Hannah Anderson — wants police to show concrete evidence that her brother actually killed the girl's mother and 8-year-old brother and burned their bodies.
Hannah Anderson, the 16-year-old California girl who was saved from her kidnapper, James DiMaggio, when authorities discovered them in a Idaho forest, said in her first television interview since her rescue that she was "a survivor," not a victim.
There’s a new twist in the case of the California girl, 16, who was abducted by a family friend, James DiMaggio, and taken into the wilderness of Idaho. His family thinks he may have been the biological father of the girl, Hannah Anderson, and now they want her DNA.
Hannah Anderson, the 16-year-old California teen who was abducted by a suspect who's also believed to have murdered her mother and brother, attended a fundraiser Thursday, her first public appearance since police shot and killed James DiMaggio in the wilderness of Idaho where the pair was discovered.
With the mother dead and the son missing, the father of a South California girl who was abducted by the suspected murderer had this emotion-filled television message for her on Tuesday: Run.
On top of that, he said, investigators were forced to use DNA from him to identify the remains of 8-year-old Ethan at the burned home.
