Court Records: DiMaggio Tortured Victims, Exchanged Phone Calls With Anderson

Posted By on Thu, Aug 15, 2013 at 9:47 AM

Court documents unsealed late Aug. 14 revealed that James DiMagggio, the abductor of Hannah Anderson, tortured Anderson's mother and eight-year-old brother before killing them in his home and kidnapping the 16-year-old Anderson. A nearly week-long manhunt for DiMaggio and Anderson ended in the backcountry of Idaho's Valley County Aug. 10.

Investigators said that after killing Anderson's mother and brother, along with a family dog, he set his house on fire. Court documents also revealed that DiMaggio and Anderson exchanged 13 phone calls on the same day as the killings. Anderson's and DiMaggio's cell phones were switched off later that same day.

Also on Wednesday, it was revealed that DiMaggio was killed by "multiple gunshot wounds" to the head and chest Aug. 10 after an FBI tactical team tracked him to north central Idaho. A Valley County Coroner confirmed that DiMaggio had been shot. A San Diego County lawman had previously confirmed that DiMaggio was armed when he was shot.

DiMaggio's body was cremated Aug. 13 near Los Angeles.
