As a kidnap victim/survivor myself, I immediately became interested in the Hannah Anderson “alleged” kidnapping case.

So far, nothing is adding up in this kidnapping/murder case. So, let's explore some of the "facts" that have been released.

Hannah often went on trips with Jim DiMaggio, just the two of them. They went to Vegas and most recently to Hollywood. He was always picking her up from school.

What parent would let their teenage daughter go off for days with someone old enough to be her father? Does it matter that DiMaggio was a long-time friend of the family? In fact, so close to the family that Hannah and Ethan called him “Uncle” Jim.

Remember, she is only 16 years old!

The day of the alleged kidnapping she was seen riding around town with this 40-year old man. Or, was it the day of the alleged kidnapping?

Original reports stated that she was kidnapped on August 4th, but later we find out DiMaggio picked her up from school on the 3rd.

Hannah has been claiming DiMaggio “creeped her out,” but if this is true, then why did she go on multiple trips with him?

She claims her mother, Christina, and her 8-year old brother, Ethan, were tied up in the garage, DiMaggio had set a timer to explosives, and they left.

When found, Hannah and DiMaggio were in the remote wilderness of Idaho, camping. This is where DiMaggio was shot and killed by police, before he could be questioned. After her “rescue” Hannah claims she didn't know her mother and brother were dead.

How can this be true? She stated she knew the house was set with explosives that would set the house on fire, and that her mother and brother were “tied up” in the garage…but, her brother was not found in the garage.

When police arrived, the house was engulfed in flames. Ethan was found inside the house, burnt so badly DNA had to be used to identify him.

If what Hannah claims is true, how did he get to the house? Did he break free of his bonds? If so, why didn't he help his mother? Was she already dead? Christina Anderson was found inside the garage. Reports said that she had died from blunt force trauma to the head. A bloody crowbar was found near her body.

But, Hannah claims her mother and brother were alive when they left. If this is true, who swung the crowbar, over and over again, bashing in Christina Anderson’s head?

Will we ever know the truth? I sure hope so. Christina and Ethan Anderson deserve justice.

In my next blog on Friday I will post Part Two as we continue exploring more "facts" on Hannah Anderson — Victim or Not?

Search-for-truth I was very glad to see that everyone has not dropped the ball on this case. There are some very good questions that still need to be answered.

Hopefully, the truth will come out, as I do not believe we have seen it yet, and my gut feelings about it trouble me.

message 16: by Sue (new)

Sue Julsen Thanks for the comment. The ball is still bouncing on this one with me. Hopefully I'll get some answers and find the truth.

Search-for-truth I hope, truly, that you do!

message 18: by Sue (new)

Sue Julsen I'm going to do my best to find the truth. :)
