Update: The manhunt for James Lee DiMaggio continues as authorities believe he and his victim(s) are headed through New Mexico -- further indicating that he is heading south, possibly as far as Mexico in hopes of escaping with his "trophy" -- a 16-year-old girl, who as far as we know, is not a willing accomplice.
DiMaggio is the prime suspect in an arson that revealed the bodies of a dog, an unidentified child and Anderson's mother, Christina Andereson. It's believed that the unidentified child is eight-year-old Ethan Anderson -- Hannah's little brother -- but officials are holding onto hope that Ethan is with his sister and James -- though that would mean another child has been murdered, and that really doesn't make much sense. It's more likely that the remains found at the burned home belong to little Ethan.
Will Hannah Anderson suffer the same fate as her brother and mother? It's not known at this point, but what is known is that James Lee DiMaggio reportedly admitted to being "attracted" to the 16-year-old girl, so in his own twisted mind he could be keeping her alive in hopes of forcing her to be with him. Hannah's father has publicly encouraged her to run from her captor via the media -- but is she even still alive?
