Family of man who kidnapped California teen says he may be her father

Suspect’s family wants DNA test on Hannah Anderson

A person claiming to be 16-year-old Hannah Anderson was answering hundreds of questions on Ask.fm and other social media sites Tuesday about her kidnapping ordeal at the hands of 40-year-old James DiMaggio.

“We are requesting DNA samples from Hannah and anything they can get from Ethan,” Spanswick told the TV station Tuesday. “There are rumors that Jim was the children’s real father … We think it’s strange he left them so much money with no explanation.” On Monday, Spanswick said that DiMaggio left a $112,000 life insurance policy to Hannah’s grandmother, Bernice Anderson. The body of Hannah’s mother, Christina Anderson, was found in DiMaggio’s burned out garage on August 4. San Diego’s medical examiner confirmed she died from blunt force trauma to the head. Ethan’s badly burned body was found in another part of DiMaggio’s home, although authorities have yet to release a cause of death for the boy. Spanswick said the money was intended for Hannah and Ethan, and that DiMaggio made their grandmother the beneficiary of his policy in 2011.
