A tragic and horrifying episode in California came to an end on August 10 when alleged murderer and kidnapper James DiMaggio was shot and killed by the FBI, and his captor Hannah Anderson was found healthy and alive. And no one is happier about that than Hannah’s father, Brett Anderson.

Brett Anderson, whose daughter was allegedly kidnapped and whose wife and son were allegedly murdered by James DiMaggio, is going through an unimaginable overflow of emotion on August 11, a day after DiMaggio was killed and his daughter Hannah Anderson was safely rescued.

Brett Anderson ‘Elated’ That Hannah Anderson Has Been Rescued

Brett is reportedly elated that his 16-year-old daughter was found alive by a law enforcement team in the Idaho wilderness, and the joy he feels in anticipation to reuniting with Hannah is immeasurable. “He was very relieved and very excited and looking forward to being reunited with his daughter,” San Diego Sheriff William Gore told Fox 19.

After a manhunt kicked into full gear on August 9, an FBI tactical unit tracked DiMaggio and eventually shot and killed him. Hannah was then found nearby. “Hannah Anderson was located with DiMaggio,” Gore explained. “She appears well, was rescued and will be transported to a hospital.”

Brett Anderson After Losing His Wife & Son

However, Hannah’s father is also experiencing an unthinkable sort of bittersweetness. Of course he is overjoyed to have his daughter back, but we cannot forget that his wife and eight-year-old son were found dead in a fire in DiMaggio’s home east of San Diego on August 4.

“I am nervous, excited and saddened for my wife and son and worried what my daughter has been through,” Brett said in a text to CNN after Hannah’s rescue. “It’s now healing time. Keep us in your prayers.”

We are at least glad that Brett will be reunited with part of his family, and that this horrific episode has finally come to an end. We will surely keep him, Hannah, and the Anderson’s family and friends in our hearts.

Hannah Anderson looked like an evil “HO”. There’s a saying that is appropriate in this situation as far as the 16 year old Hannah Anderson: “If it looks like a duck and walks like a duck then it is a duck (“HO”). The age of consent is 16 and DiMaggio was a “FOOL”. Stay away from these “HO’s”. The witnesses in Idaho said that Hannah Anderson didn’t appear to be with DiMaggio against her will. Maybe she set the fire and killed her mother and her brother to have sex with DiMaggio? I’m sure she will not tell the truth. Maybe it’s a good thing and any man caught with a woman less than the age of consent should be shot and killed by the FBI.

Seriously? Just because she’s a beautiful girl, posting the same types of pictures that most teenage girls do these days, doesn’t mean she’s not a victim. The load of crap you just spewed is probably the same justification some guys have for raping women — she asked for it. And seriously, why would she need to have sex with a blatantly unattractive man like DiMaggio? I’m sure there are far more good-looking guys in her school she could have her pick of if she really wanted to go that route. :P Way to victim blame, though. This poor girl just lost her mother and brother to a violent pedophile.

That’s a bit of an inappropriate statement for the Sheriff to say that Hannah Anderson didn’t appear to be being held against her will. In a situation like this, there is no way to know the psychological state of mind Hannah would be in until professionals have an opportunity to interview her. Until we know whether this was an actual kidnap situation or not, we can’t jump to conclusions about what her reality is.
