Hannah Anderson: "I consider myself a survivor"

Kidnapped teen Hannah Anderson speaks out for the first time.

The 16-year-old says she text with the man who abducted her 13 times on the day she was taken.

First Hannah Anderson TV interview: 'My mom raised me to be strong'

Anderson says, there was nothing improper in those texts.

She spoke about her relationship with Joe DiMaggio in an interview on NBC's Today show.

OutFront: Clinical Psychologist Dr. Jeff Gardere.

    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 may even be her god-father if not father) and mother found out and threatened to tell father and hard hearted 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 crazy police with a lynch-mob mentality caught up and shot the poor chap. Police and the news media carried out a Salem-style witch hunt and the forgone conclusion that he was a kidnapper. She is going to be found out, we will wait and see.
