James Lee DiMaggio was killed by law enforcement on Saturday after killing Christine Anderson, 44 and her son Ethan and kidnapping 16-year old Hannah Anderson.
DiMaggio killed Christina and Ethan by setting fire to the house so he could kidnap Hannah, it is believed that DiMaggio had an “unsual infatuation” with the 16-year old.
DiMaggio was known by the Anderson family as “Uncle Jim,” and he had a platonic relationship with Christine. The breakthrough in the case came when two couples traveling on horseback came across DiMaggio and the girl. Mike Young who owns a ranch in Sweet, Idaho said that “She kinda had a scared look on her face. I just had a gut feeling about him.”
With air support and horseback, investigators scoured the isolated area, and figured out where he was holed up, moving in on Saturday.
