    Family of Calif. abductor requests paternity test for 16-year-old victim

    Family of Calif. abductor requests paternity test for 16-year-old victim | Fox News

    The family of kidnapper James DiMaggio is asking the girl he abducted for a DNA sample so that they can determine whether DiMaggio was her father.

    A spokesman for DiMaggio's family told 10News.com that the family made the request after it was revealed that the DiMaggio left $112,000 to Hannah Anderson's paternal grandmother, who he named as the sole beneficiary of his life insurance policy. DiMaggio died August 10 in a shootout with the FBI in a remote area of Idaho. Authorities believe he kidnapped 16-year-old Hannah after killing her mother, Christina Anderson, and 8-year-old brother, Ethan, at his house in Southern California.

    "He expected the grandmother to take care of the two children with the money. He stated he did not want it to go to their parents because they were having marital problems and he didn't trust them with the money on their own," Andrew Spanswick told 10News.com.

    The family of the child that was abducted should tell that psycho's family to piss off.

    Based on his actions, he was deranged enough to believe they were his kids.

    Hold on one second there, pardner.

    How do you explain that he independently (and obviously earlier) left insurance proceeds to the abductee's grandparent?

    Not that it changes the necessity of shooting him dead, but if there was a plot in place by family to deny this guy parental rights? Doesn't that change what happened from the heinous crime it appeared to be to "parental abduction"?

    There may be much more to this story.

    Yeah I would go along with that if he hadn't murdered (brutally) the mother and 8 year old son.

    Or he was a delusional psychopath who wished the children were his.

    Based on his actions, which is the more likely scenario?

    *shrug* Still, asking for the paternity test doesn't appear to be beyond the pale.

    Honestly - there seems to be no evidence to support that. He left the paternal grandmother his life insurance money after removing his sister . . . and they jumped to a conclusion though they state they have 'no explanation' for why he did so.

    Really - it seems like they're feel slighted and raw over the money. That's how this really comes across.

    What are they going to do? Adopt her? Try to get that $112,000 back?

    And pretend she is his kid - or he THINKS she is his kid - his approach was to strike up some type of connection with the daughter, kill her brother in an attempt to win her heart over? Or perhaps the kidnapping and murder was some way to prove he cared for her? . . . and he didn't pursue a DNA test on his own? He didn't try to go to court and win his parental rights? . . . His lack of action makes it obvious that he didn't think she was his kid.

    Trying to defend his actions like 'he was a parent who had his child ripped away' makes no sense.

    The family just concocted that in a desperate attempt to make sense of someone who was so senseless and capable of such hideous crimes.
    A screaming comes across the sky.
    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    Do we know proof positive that he actually started the fire? All I heard was that the two victims were tied up.

    Seems like if the boy might of been his son that he wouldn't kill him.
