Ac cording to the Daily Mail, James Dimaggio's father (also called James Dimaggio) committed suicide 18 years to the day of his sons death, after holding a 16-year-old girl captive in a violent home invasion. The similarities are chilling. www.heavy.com...
A friend of kidnap-murder suspect James DiMaggio, who was fatally shot by a federal officer in an Idaho forest preserve Saturday, said he may have wanted to die on the same date and under similar circumstances as his father.
During a variety of broadcast interviews Saturday, family friend Andrew Spanswick ,of West Hollywood, said he and DiMaggio's sister worried all day Saturday that he would not be taken alive.
"I thought he was probably going to die either by his own hand or someone else's," Spanswick said. "I guess in some way it's what he wanted, but it's unfortunate that it couldn't have ended in another way."
According to the San Diego Union-Tribune, James Lee DiMaggio's father, James Everet DiMaggio, was wanted by police in connection with the baseball bat beatings of two people in an El Cajon motel. He pleaded guilty to assault and was sent to prison, the newspaper said.
A prosecutor said the elder DiMaggio had earlier broken into the home of an ex-girlfriend in a dispute over a car, but only the woman's teenaged daughter and her boyfriend were there, so he handcuffed the boyfriend to a bed.
The girl escaped after asking to use the bathroom, the prosecutor said.
The now adult woman at the center of the earlier incident involving James Everet DiMaggio in 1989 told interviewers Saturday that the elder DiMaggio professed his love for her when she was 16, and that he broke into her house when she wouldn't go away with him.
James Everet DiMaggio died from a "drug-induced" suicide," on Aug. 10, 1998, Spanswick said.
Exactly like the younger DiMaggio's relationship with Hannah Anderson, James Everet took care of Dusenberry's two children, including the 16-year-old daughter, and took them on road trips. A contemporary interview, which you can watch above, with the 16-year-old girl reveals that James Everet DiMaggio declared his love to the teen and asked her to run away with him. www.heavy.com...

Tonight on HLN Hannah's great aunt mentioned a nickname that people called her. I believe it was "Mirror Girl" which wasn't clarified, but I interpreted it as narcissistic personality. She likes to look at herself in the mirror. We are missing an important piece of the puzzle that the media refuses to address.

Well, here's some interesting news — In 2011 DiMaggio changed the sole beneficiary of his $112,000 employee-issued life insurance policy from his sister to Bernice Anderson, Hanna's grandmother.
