Murder-Kidnapping Suspect Followed Dad’s Footsteps


(CASCADE, ID) – A murder and kidnapping suspect from southern California who was killed by FBI officials in a shootout in Idaho over the weekend died in almost the same way his father had. James DiMaggio is accused of killing the mother and younger brother of his kidnapping victim, 16-year-old Hannah Anderson. DiMaggio’s father broke into the home of his ex-girlfriend and took her 16-year-old daughter hostage before taking his own life. Authorities say his father’s crimes were committed exactly 15 years before DiMaggio’s own fatal shootout.
