There's a new twist in the case of alleged killer and kidnapper James DiMaggio, who was shot by federal authorities in the Idaho backcountry after a multi-state manhunt earlier this month.
According to a news report from an ABC affiliate in San Diego, DiMaggio's family has requested a paternity test to determine whether he was the father of Hannah Anderson and her younger brother, Ethan, who authorities say DiMaggio killed before lighting his house on fire and fleeing California with Hannah.
The reason for the request stems from DiMaggio's life insurance policy, which leaves all $112,000 to Hannah and Ethan's paternal grandmother, Bernice Anderson.
"We are requesting DNA samples from Hannah and anything they can get from Ethan," a DiMaggio family spokesperson told the TV station. "There are rumors Jim was the children's real father. The parents didn't marry until 2002. We think it's strange he left them so much money with no explanation."
