Also, what about that trip the parents allowed Hannah to go off on for a week, staying in a motel room ALONE with DeMaggio? I suppose he always paid for everything too? WTH kind of parents would allow such a thing, even with a REAL uncle, not to mention a fake uncle? He was, after all, a man with testeorone and not a unich, even if he had shown no other sexual interests. For crying out loud; things happen in the middle of the night in motel rooms! I tell ya, ain't NO WAY I'd allow such a thing!!
Just DiMaggio hauling her butt back home after two nights because he was disgusted that she paid more attention to her ipad than she paid to him was warning them right there that he expected more from Hannah.
These parents must have been blind as a bat. Or were they? I think the investigators are too, not to consider the possibility there is more here than Hannah has leaked out. Now the mother and brother are dead and can't talk, while daddyO seems to be off on planet zerd.
Thank you!

Just cutting in here... it will be a busy day today for me. I am glad that I am not the only one who thinks something is 'hinky' about this case. But whenever I hint to anyone else my opinions on this, I get hammered so I finally decided not to say anything to others at this time. But! That is what these blogs are for! LOL!

Was Hannah's family THAT stupid? They HAD to know how nuts DiMaggio's parents were... talk about coming from a dysfunctional background! They had known him for years! Only until after he grabbed Hannah and took her with him after the house caught on fire, did this history of his family come out in the media. If he was THAT close to her family, they HAD to know about all of this! Not sure she said much to them about being afraid of him or not.. that is what her dad and she herself are saying now. But, is that to just protect her so the real truth doesn't get out to the media? All week the cable TV news has been playing her out as a complete victim. However, I am not sure that is the case yet at this time.

She was sixteen - a vulnerable age in which many gals at that age can be easily infatuated and influenced by older men. He flattered her, and I think she melted. Any female who is afraid of a guy who she interprets as stalking her, is not going to keep returning his calls, either. We shall see how this all plays out, but this is my theory at the present time. Sure, now she 'sees the light' and probably is in mourning for her brother and mother; thus the statements from her.. "He deserved what he got", etc. I am giving her the benefit of the doubt at this time that she did not help him plan the murders. BUT - it sure wouldn't be the first time that a young person was influenced by someone like that IF the parents were trying to prevent a young teen from getting involved with someone they knew was dangerous. What if.. just saying... WHAT IF, at the time she DID go along with it? What if she and this DiMaggio were having a sexual relationship and her mother found out? What if, caught up in emotion and lust, she went along with his plans?

Even if she didn't, there is certainly more to this story than has been told at this time. She also didn't say a 'peep' when authorities first found her - she says it was because she was too afraid to speak, but I don't believe her. She could have easily indicated to them that she was being held captive. Too many times the 'fear factor' is over rated in so-called kidnapping cases in order to give the "victim" a way out. Not sure this applies here.

Ponderings, I couldn't agree with you more! There HAS to be more to this story than we know, or likely will ever know! I haven't been posting about any of this on other sites,(or even reading them); but if I had I'm sure I would have raised some doubts since I DO have them. No, I'm not accusing the girl of anything, but I AM saying there is more. MUCH more.

Also, I don't believe that at least the mother did not have some misgivings about DiMaggios' feelings and intentions towards Hannah. I don't see how she COULDN'T have had some inkling since she is the ONE who allowed Hannah to go off on that week long trip ALONE with him, and she HAD to know why he brought her back home after only two days!! Also the little brother; how much did HE know that caused DiMaggio to have to kill him TOO? DaMNED RIGHT, there's more to this story!!

I can use myself as a measuring rod. At sixteen years old I was on my own, renting a room, working behind the soda fountain of a drug store and sending myself to school all by my lonesome little self, fending for myself and with no help financially or in any other way from ANYONE! At 16, some of us are 'smarter' than we will ever be again. Or think we are.

Absolutely, this "so-called girl/child" was quite capable of being involved with DiMaggio sexually AND in the gruesome murders of her mother and brother. Not saying she was, but she certainly could have been; not excusing her mother (OR her father) either for not keeping her AWAY from DiMaggio. They HAD to have seen the signs many times. For pete's sake; he had been their "friend" before Hannah was even born!

I just wonder what he did for a living, that he was always able to blow wads of money on this family? And NEVER expected payback?? He sure as hell did, and finally took it, didn't he?

Has it come out yet whether or not he was involved in drugs? Maybe he was a user AND a dealer.. that could explain the wads of cash.

Wasn't DiMaggio living with Hannah's mother as her live in? That right there speaks volumes to HER character, too. Some may say she was getting to strict with Hannah- well think about it. Not only would any GOOD mother not want to see her teenage daughter get involved with a much older man, but HE HAD BEEN HER LOVER TOO, Hadn't he? Does anyone know for sure? If so, jealously would also play a big part here, if that was true. There are all kinds of dynamics going on here that we haven't been told yet. The kind of boyfriends these mothers sometimes pick to drag home to their kids absolutely astounds me. Are they THAT desperate?????

It was also reported on CNN that "Hannah is doing better, and the day after she got back home (to mourn in private) she then went out and got her nails done". Wait a minute....NOT SO FAST!

I don't care.. some may call that 'therapy'.. but something ain't right her, folks. IF she was just relieved that the bad boogey man was dead, that would be one thing. But her MOTHER and BROTHER were murdered! And burned up in a house fire! Hello??? Whether I was a toddler, adolescent, teenager, or grown adult when my family was murdered - if this had happened to me, the last thing on my mind would be..."Hey, I think I would feel better if I got my nails done!"

I smell a rat... a DEAD, rotten rat.

Thank you King George! I'm staying as strong as I can. Not so bad, so far, considering that I've already been dealing with it for quite a while. Earlier on, I had refused any kind of conventional treatment and had decided to take the alternative route since most of the surgeries/chemo/radiation ends in disaster, only quicker; but then the time came that the one had to be removed by the urologist last year and now this one in the throat.
It seems that I have no alternative other than radiation to try to save my vocal cords. Aha... but I'm eternally hopeful, AND grateful that God gave us physicians to help us to some degree. To tell you the truth though, I don't have a lot of faith in any one particular person, just God. To err is human,(and sometimes deliberate or negligent) but God makes no errors. Please, PLEASE, do pray for me. THERE is where my help lies. With all three of you above praying for me,(and anyone else who will), there alone lies a LOT of prayers going off to the throne room and the heavenly host!
I am wondering what you all think about this Hannah Anderson situation? I think there's much we don't know. How could these parents NOT know this DeMaggio close friend like-an-uncle didn't have his eye on Hannah for a looooong time? Why would they call on him all the time to run their errands with and for their kids? How could they not know he was warped? Or that one day he would call in his twisted favors and demand pay back for his family-favors, by way of claiming Hannah's sexual pleasure? What about the letters she had written to him? There's more to this story? I wonder.
I haven't followed that case. I've only read a couple of articles about it. I remember a case I did follow in which Adam Mayes, a close family friend of the Bain family, abducted Mother Jo Ann Bain and her three daughters. He and his wife killed Jo Ann and the oldest daughter at their home in Mississippi, and buried them on their property. When police caught up to him, he shot, and killed himself. The two youngest daughters were saved.
Mayes had traveled to TN to help the Bains move. He was described as being like an uncle to the girls.

In Alanna Gallagher case, 17 year old Tyler Holder was arrested. He lived two doors down from the Gallaghers. Her little body was found a mile away from her home, but, authorities said that Holder's vehicle did not leave his house at all on the day of her murder. He must have had an accomplice.
Originally, police were looking for a red pickup truck. Another family living about 14 miles from the Gallagher's said that a man in a red pickup truck had stopped in front of their house about a month before Alanna's murder, and tried to coax their two little girls out of the front yard, and over to the truck.

Ponderings; I tried to answer your post above but wasn't able to get it through, then lost it. I'll try again later today or this evening. For now I have to get ready and leave for my treatment. Sometimes I have to go to bed afterwards, sometimes not. Maybe today will be one of those 'not' days.

Meanwhile, I agree with you 100% girl! No quarrel coming from me. There's WAY MORE going on (or went on) here than we know about. This entire bunch COULDN'T have been a complete bunch of saps. Could they? Sure sounds like the investigators are dumber than a box a rocks too.

K Geo, thank you for the updated info above. I've somewhat looked in on those two cases too and was aware of the arrests in both of them. I was wrong in Alannas' case; I would have bet money that either the mother or one of the daddies in that house was involved in her death. I am not too familiar with the Bain case, or either have forgotten what little I knew about it.

In the shooting death of the West baby in Brunswick, Ga., the parents are also being treated as suspects in addition to the two young black men who have been apprehended (along with the mother and an aunt), b/c of the gun powder that was found on both of them, and also due to the mothers' grown daughter raising some suspicious questions about the life ins policy her mother had on the baby. This is the case where the mother had a yard sale immediately to get rid of baby's things. How pathetic.

I wish you would pick up on this 'Hannah Anderson vs James Lee DiMaggio' story. You are so good at sniffing out dirt and finding hidden links!

Ponderings, I had not heard that Hannahs' mother was shacking up with DiMaggio. I had heard that the father was working out of town, then another time I heard the parents were separated. These trashy women WILL do it though, and right in front of their vulnerable kids; usually without paying attention that it is really one of the kids their sex partner is after; then they go off and leave him in charge of their helpless kids, not only that, they make their abused kids 'mind' him! These children truly have no hope and no escape.(The sickening drug haven and violent murder of Hailey Dunn comes to mind).

What I had read was that DiMaggio had his own log home with detached garage and that he had invited the Andersons to his place to spend time with him one last time before his house was taken in foreclosure, and that it was on THAT visit that he murdered the mother and young son and set his house on fire (not their house) while Hannah was off at a sports practice session, then he picked her up and took off towards Idaho. During that time he and Hannah had 13 email or text messages between them. Pray tell, what the he!! was THAT all about?! It doesn't take 13 conversations to make arrangements to pick up someone!

There are so MANY lingering "why" questions without explanation. It appears to me that DiMaggio was deliberately executed by firing squad before he had time to talk. What say you?

As soon as I learned that the cops had killed him, I had assumed it was a planned suicide on his part. Remember, his friend on CNN kept saying that he was worried about him because the anniversary of when his own dad killed himself was coming up... and, it was on that date when he himself was killed. Can't prove it, I guess, but it sure looks suspicious, doesn't it?

Maybe I am wrong then then DiMaggio and Hannah's mother were intimate.. something on one of the news stations or the AOL article today tipped me off thinking this.. maybe I read it wrong, however. And as you said, cases like the sleazy family that poor Hailey Dunn was born into sure came to mind during all of this. Maybe it isn't the same; we will probably find out for sure one way or the other. But I still think that Hannah went with this guy willingly, whether or not she soon realized her mistake, we may never know. She's only sixteen, but old enough to know she would be in a heap of trouble if it was discovered that she was 'in' on the burning of the house that resulted in the deaths of her family.

Ponderings, I don't know the truth about any of the stories ref the Anderson Family/DiMaggio situation; only the few scant stories I've read. I Googled them last night and found there are many people posting under various headings who raise the same suspicious questions you and I are raising and not many at all who lean towards believing that Hannah is little miss innocent in all this.

Go to Google and read some of these posts; you'll be surprised. There are many posters there who don't believe her. I did learn that Hannah had taken many day trips with DiMaggio and that for him to pick her up for a trip would not have been unusual, which does not sound to me like she was 'scared' of him.

I also looked under Websleuths and it was there that everyone was oohing and awwing over the lucky to have been found and brought home safely, the lovely Hannah. None there had any questions concerning the possibility of her involvement. The best of all the blogs was Val Hall of The Hinkey Meter, but her site has been taken down. Val always researched her suspicions with mounds of solid evidence and got to the truth, but she has vanished.

The thing is, I'm not finding any links that leads to any updated news articles, just the initial statement declaring Hannah 100% an innocent victim, which was made by the local sheriff at the time she was found and DiMaggio was shot dead; which IMO was not necessary. One shot to a leg would have brought him down, then we'd know.

I understand what you're saying, about the anniversary of DiMaggios' father having committed suicide, and his friends' concern that he might use that date to kill himself. Okay, fine, but that would not have necessitated him killing Hannahs' mother and little brother, plus the dog; people he supposedly dearly loved, burning his house/garage down, and kidnapping Hannah with the eventual intention of killing her too.

DiMaggio already had many years of anniversaries to kill himself if that's what he was planning to do. You know, I really get sick of all these armchair pseudo psychologists always reading a deep and dark psychological reason into every little thing that happens, when maybe there wasn't one. The fact is, most people aren't as "deep" as others give them credit for being.

Yeah, I know; people go nuts and off the deep end and do very horrible and evil things, and maybe this is what DiMaggio did and without provocation; only, I'm not so sure there wasn't some other evil scheme here that involved Miss Hannah herself. As it looks right now, we aren't ever going to get a clue outta her OR her daddyO. It looks to me like they're just out there collecting donations when DiMaggio already left his $112K life ins policy beneficiary payable to Hannah's grandma!

On a final note? I'd really like to know more about James Lee DiMaggio but don't know where to find the info. Or is there any? Surely he had a family, a mother, relatives; perhaps a former wife, kids somewhere, friends, neighbors and former co-workers? Any number of these people would have known the real James Lee.

Surely at some point he had plans and aspirations. He was not just a deadbeat. He had an auto, had purchased a home and built a garage; all this took some planning and stability. But he was a lonely man who cherished and hung his affections onto the Andersons and their babies.

So he had a mediocre job, so do a lot of other people, but still manage to hold onto stability. Was his job something like a telephone solicitor? Whatever, I don't think he made a lot of money, but I DO see where the Andersons kept him drained! It's no wonder he couldn't keep up his mortgage payments; the Andersons were using him up, consuming his every waking moment, burning up his gasoline as fast as he could fill up his tank, hauling them on trips and HIM paying for everything; AND running everywhere else for them night and day; outright using him for their entertainment pleasures, AND their drudgery.

I'd almost guarantee you he bought nearly every bite of food they swallowed, and paid for every gallon of gasoline. God knows what else he gladly paid for them! NOW he's lost his home because of them, when all he ever did was love and 'do' for them. They took advantage of him and used him up, now he has nowhere to turn. See where I'm going with this? They drove him off the deep end.

Good Morning!

I will try to comment on your posts one at a time... I also haven't been following this crime extremely close, probably why I don't have all my facts straight yet at this time. But I do catch the cable news, and watch and listen when this one comes up.

I did catch however that Hannah had not only answered all of his calls, and like you mentioned, she also had taken short trips with him. That contradicts what she said, or her family said that she had told them that he gave her 'the willies' or something to that effect. It appears to me that she told them this in order to throw them off as to what was really going on between the two of them.

I had never heard of "Val Hall" - but I Googled her name and mainly found out that her website domain is up for sale, so I guess she is done. I wish I had known about her, as there are a couple of cases where I would have loved to have read her input. Last year, it appears the last time anyone had heard from her she said her dad had died of Alzheimer's and her mother didn't take care of him properly, that she was mentally ill, etc. So, guess this gal has too many personal issues of her own to continue on with her "Hinkey Meter".

The way I understand it, the reason cops shot and killed DiMaggio is because he had weapons on him and threatened to shoot; whether or not he said he was also going to hill Hannah, that I have not heard. Nah... a shot in the leg would have just meant more tax money for citizens to keep him alive, and to buy him a crooked lawyer to get him off the hook.

DiMaggio was nuts. People who are mentally unstable are not easy to figure out - IF or why he had planned to die on the day he did, instead of other anniversaries, is anyone's guess. But, he may have been on a guilt trip this year, once he started seducing Hannah. He figured he was in deep legal 'doo-doo' and didn't want to face the consequences, IMO. Killing the family off and setting the house on fire proves he was demented. It also proves to me that Hannah's mother discovered he had been diddling with Hannah.

I also have grown weary of 'arm chair' psychiatrists. But it is good money for them, especially once cable TV was invented, and it is evidently a good money maker for the networks, too. I do understand trying to get to the bottom of what causes people to 'go off' in order to prevent it from happening again, but I am afraid most of it is not an easy fix. It is called EVIL in the world. How about that Australian young man, shot down in cold blood because those teenagers decided to do a 'thrill kill?' I have the TV on mute at the moment, but just five minutes ago on CNN they were trying to 'analyze' those creeps. When one so-called shrink said it was because teenagers brains are not fully developed and they can't reason like adults, I became disgusted. Guess what? I knew not to murder anyone as a young child... didn't you? Few parents are truly raising kids today. Not only have they been pooped out into the world by those who would have just as soon not had kids, they leave them to fend on their own. Usually no father figure in their lives, and even if there were, it wouldn't be a good thing because THEIR dads are no good either.

As far as Hannah is concerned, we probably haven't seen the last of her. Hard telling what she will be like in two or three years... of course, if she gets into trouble it will because of the 'trauma' she went through, according to the professionals. The real question however is, was she a criminal in the making BEFORE all of this happened?

NEWS ALERT!!! BREAKING NEWS!!(do I sound like Nancy Grace?..LOL!)

Just now on CNN, the DiMaggio's family (including his sister her now has his cat) wants a DNA sample from Hannah as they are suspicious that he was Hannah's and Ethan's father. But the Anderson family says "Tina", Hannah's mother, didn't know him until she was already pregnant with Hannah.(so, how about Ethan?). They claim that her dad (Anderson) gave his DNA sample to authorities when she went missing.

So... what does that tell you? Evidently Jimmy and Tina were more than just a little friendly for several years? You decide.

As I just mentioned, it appears that DiMaggio had been shacking up with Tina Anderson for a very long time... that is why he was giving the family money. Looks like perhaps everyone was taking advantage of everybody....LOL! As far as his family is concerned, his sister is around - it was announced on yesterday's news that she just took his cat away from Hannah - the one that they had with them and were going to turn loose in the wild. Hmmmmmm....

Ponderings, Val Hall pulled out right in the middle of the lawsuit that was filed by Anne Bremner (sp?) on behalf of the family of Rebecca Zanhaeu (sp?) of the Coronoda Mansion murder, in Ca. Val believed that Rebeccas' death was murder, and had done vast research that would have proved it; also the possibility that Rebecca's wealthy b/f's six year old son was murdered and NOT by Rebecca. Rebecca was hanged naked off a balcony.

Atty Bremner was playing games and not making filings in a timely manner, also not responding to inquiries, and this upset Val very much. I know, she had some personal problems in her family life, but Val was brilliant, honest to a T, and the salt of the earth; her resources were undeniable and vast, sharper than any tack, she did not make wild and unsupported accusations and knew exactly what she was doing at all times.

From the tone of her posts, I could tell that she was thoroughly disgusted with the entire SO investigation and their declaring Rebeccas' death a homicide when it wasn't, and then with Bremner's lack of follow thru in her families' costly investigation. I would guarantee you this was the final breaking point for Val on top of her family crisis. She had REAMS of authentic info on every case she looked into, all lost and no archives left to find any of it. She deleted everything.

She gave no advance warning that she was shutting down The Hinkey Meter site, just one day it was gone and posted for sale, but there was nothing left to sell. I've never seen or heard of Val since that day. Such a tremendous loss.

As I just mentioned, it appears that DiMaggio had been shacking up with Tina Anderson for a very long time... that is why he was giving the family money. Looks like perhaps everyone was taking advantage of everybody....LOL! As far as his family is concerned, his sister is around - it was announced on yesterday's news that she just took his cat away from Hannah - the one that they had with them and were going to turn loose in the wild. Hmmmmmm....
WOW Ponderings, you may have dug up more info than I knew existed. Maybe they WERE involved all those years! Nothing would surprise me, not even if daddyO knew and went along with the affair since James Lee was picking up the tab for everything they ALL did; PLUS running his butt off for them day and night. I tell ya right now; there's GOT to be a reason he was allowed such freedom of range with precious Hannah. And GOT to be a reason he continued to allow them to bleed him dry such that he couldn't even afford to keep up his house payments. Poor devil.

I think they totally drove him over the edge and caused him to lose all senses of rationale, until he finally popped his cork. But I'm not so sure HE is the one who killed the mother, brother AND the dog; OR the one who set his house on fire. How could we be sure since he's dead and was never given the opportunity to talk? THAT's why I say they should have only shot him in the leg. 250 men against one who only had ONE weapon? No fair.

Interesting that his sister has now confiscated his cat away from miss Hannah. he he.... It will be interesting to see what any DNA tests results prove.... if anything.

Ponderings; I made an error in my post #96163 when I stated that the SO investigation had declared Rebeccas' hanging death a homicide. I meant to say they had declared her death a SUICIDE, when it wasn't; it was clearly and obviously a HOMICIDE..

So there's another one. We can NEVER trust any SO investigation, or any other investigators to always come forth with the truth concerning ANY suspicious death, or that they will honor the law in truthful prosecutions even when they could without implicating themselves; such as in the Haleigh Cummings investigation, who CLEARLY hid evidence to protect Ronald Cummings and his mama.

There again, are more reasons I say we should not take the word blindly of any of those popos and investigators who were at the scene of Hannas' rescue or DiMaggios' insane shooting massacre.

~O.T.~

I realize these discussions should be on a different forum, and after today I am going to take a back seat for awhile concerning this Anderson crime.

At this point in time, I do believe that DiMaggio was responsible for the deaths and burning of his home. I also have no sympathy for him, other than he inherited an unstable psyche from both his parents.

What is interesting, is that both Hannah and Hailey Dunn were cheerleaders. I also think that both had been very likely sexually abused for several years;

By 'family', who do you mean Zazz? If you mean Cummings, two of the Cummings family are in prison on drug charges, Ron & his trashy niece Hope. If you mean Croslins, Tommy & Misty are still in prison on the same drug related charges. Donna what's-her-face is also in prison on these same drug charges but is not related to either the Cummings or the Croslins. This dummy just happened to get caught up in the drug trade while playing as Mistys' counseling friend. Idiot.

If memory serves me, none of them got less than fifteen years, with Misty getting twenty-five years. Regardless, I expect crafty dope peddling child-murderer and rapist teflon Ron and his 'higher-up' LE connections will find a way out for him long before his sentence is up. We haven't heard the last of him.

Loud-mouth, Mistys' Granny Hollars from Tenn passed on (RIP) from a stroke a while back (my favorite of the bunch); Annette Sykes is reportedly not well, likely caused by her tormenting conscience + all that cellulite she hauls around 24/7/365; meanwhile she's lost two of her kids, Hope's mother and a son named Donald. Mama Teresa (she'll be next?) is still claiming to be searching for Haleigh while Daddy Rooster and his motorcycle gang continues to bring up the rear. No news about Butter Bean & his mama and her preacher mama. Everybodys' been silenced, in prison and outside prison, by order of Sheriff Hardy and his shadow crew buddies.
