A woman whose bludgeoned body was found in the burning home of a family friend who allegedly killed her son and abducted her 16-year-old daughter died from at least a dozen blows to the head, according to an autopsy report released Monday.
A public memorial service Saturday was held to remember the mother and brother of kidnap victim, Hannah Anderson.
A family friend who kidnapped a 16-year-old girl used a timer to set fire to his rural home, where the girl’s mother and younger brother were found dead, authorities said Tuesday.
Police said evidence found in the remains of suspect James Lee DiMaggio’s house suggested he may have fled with homemade explosives and that his car might be booby-trapped.
A missing teen and her 8-year-old brother, who may have been killed along with his mother, view the suspect in their disappearance as “an uncle,” according to investigators.
