Coroner: Hannah Anderson’s abductor tested positive for drugs

SAN DIEGO – James Lee DiMaggio, the Boulevard man who abducted 16-year-old Hannah Anderson, had drugs in his system when FBI agents shot and killed him in Idaho’s backcountry, authorities confirmed Wednesday.

Hannah-Anderson,-James-Lee-DiMaggioThe Valley County Coroner Nathan Hess told Fox5 that DiMaggio tested positive for legal prescription drugs and THC, the main mind-altering ingredient found in cannabis plants.

Hess did not elaborate on what types of prescription drugs were found in his system.

FBI agents shot DiMaggio at least five times when they found him with Anderson in the Idaho wilderness on August 10.  He died at the scene, Hess said.

DiMaggio, who is also suspected of killing Hannah’s mother and 8-year-old brother before fleeing San Diego County, was armed with at least one weapon when an FBI tactical team moved in on his campsite near Morehead Lake 75 miles north of Boise, Idaho on Saturday.

DiMaggio’s body was cremated, said Cathy Griffin, a spokeswoman for the DiMaggio family.

    Irrelevant "finding"…Clearly, the two had a consensual relationship, and this little white trash slut is a blatant liar.

    Clearly our Sheriff is fine with keeping the dirty secrets of this dysfunctional family that finally erupted into murder, arson, torture and revenge. According to that useless mouthpiece Jan Chadwell, "Hannah is still a victim in every sense of the word." Sorry to the Sheriff's paper-shuffler but the REAL VICTIM here is the San Diego tax-payer and citizen who pay the salaries of Gore and his merry band of Sheriffs. I find it hilarious that a trampy teen from Lakeside managed to put one over on our boy Gore!

    Marijuana is "mind-altering"? Are you f'n kidding me? HEROIN is mind altering. Smoking a joint will calm you down at the very LEAST. Quit propagating these lies.

      THANKS Jezebel! It reads like "cannabis" is akin to LSD or PCP. Whatever.

    Why is her mug posted on here when the article is about him. I'm sick of seeing this attention seekers face. Her 15 mins. is up and she got away with something as she at least knows what happened!
