The man hunt is over for 40 year old James Lee DiMaggio …
James Lee DiMaggio has been shot dead by the FBI. Also, 16 year old Hannah Anderson who has been missing since August 3, 2013 has been found safe. DiMaggio was killed not far from the remote Idaho location where a group of horseback riders had seen him and Hannah earlier in the week. Authorities have declined to say just exactly how DiMaggio was killed. The teenager was rescued near Morehead Lake, Idaho, where an FBI tactical agent killed her alleged kidnapper. This was the best possible outcome that could have come from this bizarre abduction. Hannah Anderson has been taken to the hospital for observation. DiMaggio,
is was the prime suspect in the murder of both 44 year old Christina Anderson and 8 year old Ethan Anderson.
James Lee DiMaggio is Dead, Dead!!!
This is most likely the best outcome that could have resulted from this bizarre abduction. Once DiMaggio had killed both Christina and Ethan Anderson, there was no way he was likely going to be taken alive. The real issue was whether Hannah Anderson would be found unharmed. Thankfully, in the end she was.
16 year old Hannah Anderson found safe!!!
The man accused of kidnapping 16-year-old Hannah Anderson was killed in the Idaho wilderness Saturday, but the teen was found safe and “appears to be in pretty good shape,” San Diego County Sheriff Bill Gore said.
Gore said the suspect, James Lee DiMaggio, was shot by the FBI.
“Obviously we would have liked Mr. DiMaggio to surrender and face justice in a court of law, but that was not the case,” Gore said. Hannah will be “thoroughly evaluated” at a hospital before detectives talk to her, he said.
Hannah’s father, Brett Anderson, was notified this afternoon and was “very relieved,” Gore said at a press conference in San Diego. Plans are in progress to reunite him with his daughter Sunday. She was taken to a hospital for observation.
