16-year-old Hannah Anderson, a teenager kidnapped last Friday from her home near San Diego, has finally been recovered from the Idaho wilderness. It was here that her kidnapper, James Lee DiMaggio, 40, was shot and killed by an FBI tactical team on Saturday.

DiMaggio, a family friend who had “become like an uncle to the Anderson children,” had reportedly become “infatuated” with Hannah when he allegedly took her from her California home on Friday. He is suspected of setting the fire that killed her mother, Christina Anderson, and 8-year-old brother, Ethan, at their home. DiMaggio frequently went on camping trips with the Anderson family, according to Hannah’s father, Brett.

Amber Alerts followed the pair through five states until a horseback rider who spoke to the two on a trail, went home and called the Amber Alert tip line after recognizing their photos on television. He said that Hannah had given no indication of being under duress, although that is not uncommon in cases involving young girls and male kidnappers; they are usually warned that harm will come to their family if they try to alert anyone.

There remain more unanswered questions than answered ones, however, now that the first priority of finding Hannah has been completed. Did DiMaggio set the deadly fire at the Anderson home? Did Hannah go with him willingly for some reason? Why had she seemed without a care in the world when the horseback rider met them in Idaho? And now, why was DiMaggio killed when he apparently had no firearms or other weapons? The FBI is not releasing any details at this time, citing the impending investigation that is policy when a team member opens fire.

Hannah Anderson was taken to a medical facility when she was rescued. She had no visible injuries, but obviously, a mental evaluation will have to be done to confirm the extent of any issues that may arise from this harrowing experience. She was set to be reunited with her father today.

For now, it is undetermined what will happen with the case. As more details become available, they will be posted accordingly. Look for more stories following the case at WebProNews.

    Hi,all respected company.
    To my calculation related to this astonishing feature b/w Mr DiMaggio and Hannah,it’s really quite amazing.her
    Mr DiMaggio may have been in secret love with her unknown to her as he was her father’s friend.
    from another angle, Mr DiMaggio may be implying that he was worth enough to be married by such a pretty and a beautiful teenage girl.

      Many questions remain unanswered about the Hanna/DiMaggio incident. One question that remains to linger among many is whether Hanna Anderson went with DiMaggio willingly. San Diego Sheriff Bill Gore says NO. Was Hanna forced to go with DiMaggio? Was Hanna kidnapped? Did DiMaggio promise Hanna things she wanted but she wasn’t getting? We know that DiMaggio had plans of taking Hanna to see Hollywood. I wonder if that was true. Based on Hanna’s pictures I suspect that DiMaggio thought of Hanna as a little hottie. What was going on in the mind of a 16-year-old attractive girl going on 25? Was there some jealousy on the mother’s part? I suspect the mother told DiMaggio he could not take Hanna anywhere. A fight started causing DiMaggio to become enraged with anger. Something we will never know from DiMaggio. He is dead. The “Uncle” “good friend” relationship between DiMaggio and the Anderson’s as Hanna’s Father indicated would point an investigator toward a hot bed of all kinds of motives.

      What events and relationships took place prior to August 3, 2013 between Hanna, Her Father, Brother, Mother, and DiMaggio. I believe Hanna was vulnerable. Perhaps confused, but she knew what she wanted. The house fire and death of the Mother and Brother is indicative of extreme anger. Deeply disturbing.

      I will be following this story closely.

    How could shenot know when the story was on every radio and tv news network!I think she’s playing miss goodie two shoes! I doubt that she can tell the same stories twice about she and dimaggios odyssey! I also think dad is attempting to cover for her and possibly some of his or moms indiscretions! As Red Skelton used to say,”something just dont look right to me”! In my mind the saddest part of this whole story is the death of the eight year old little boy!!!

    Something here just isn’t right. Yes I blame him but I also put blame on this girl also. If she was so creeped out by him why then did she agree to go places with him alone.
