When James DiMaggio died in a confrontation with an FBI tactical agent deep in the Idaho wilderness this weekend, he took with him the reason why he killed a family friend and her son - and took her 16-year-old daughter captive.
His weeklong run with the teen, Hannah Anderson, spurred an intense and frantic manhunt that spanned from Southern California to Central Idaho.
It came to an end Saturday afternoon when a tip from horseback riders sent FBI agents swarming to the camping spot outside Cascade.
The reason DiMaggio killed?
He was a nut, and not too smart.
The reason the girl was taken? She was a 16 year-old girl.
II really don't believe she was "kidnapped" or "taken" as has been reported. I believe this girl went of her own free will. She is keeping a deep secret within.
Hannah and James were lovers, but her family was against it, so they killed them.
