Family of dead suspect wants to test Hannah Anderson's DNA

The family of accused kidnapper, James DiMaggio, say 16-year-old Hannah Anderson and her younger brother could be DiMaggio's children.

"We're gonna be requesting from the Anderson family - were gonna try and get a DNA sample from Hannah and anything they have left from Ethan." Andrew Spanswick, DiMaggio Family Spokesman told KGTV, "they've been a lot rumors about whether or not Jim might be the father of either or both children."

James DiMaggio family requests DNA samples for Hannah Anderson, her brother

DiMaggio is accused of killing Hannah's mother and brother. FBI agents tracked Dimaggio to Idaho last week, killing him in a shootout.

So, could the biological connection be real?

    What possessed DiMaggio to torture and kill his best friend's wife? Jealousy? Revenge? Or something he said? It doesn't make sense. Something is not quite right, doesn't add up. Something is rotten in the state of Denmark. It is more than likely that she was having an affair with the older person DiMaggio (who was most likely just a loving godfather) and mother found out and threatened to tell father and hardhearted Hannah went into a frenzy and butchered mother and brother. She phoned DiMaggio and he arrived on the scene of carnage and she persuaded him to shoot the dog and make it look like someone broke in and went berserk whilst she was out having some sort of a picnic with him in the forest. She wasn't kidnapped, she "eloped" with him or manipulated him to help her run away. He was the victim, not her. Of course the police caught up and shot the poor chap with a lynch-mob mentality, Salem-style witch hunt and the forgone conclusion that he was a kidnapper. She is going to get caught, just you wait and see.
