The 16-year-old is taking to the social media site to interact with well-wishers and answer hundreds of questions regarding her traumatic kidnapping experience.

Hannah Anderson, survivor of the horrible August 3 murder/kidnapping case that left her without her mother and brother, has returned home and reunited with her father. After a horrific crime was committed by who authorities believe was family friend James DiMaggio, a social media account believed to belong to the 16-year-old is answering personal questions about her experience and thoughts about the aftermath.

Hannah Anderson On — Kidnapping Victim Calls Abductor ‘Psycho’

An user appearing to be Hannah Anderson is answering a slew of questions regarding her days home since her kidnapping. The account was created before Hannah’s abduction, reports 10News. The San Diego County Sheriff’s Department said they are aware of the account’s existence, but they cannot officially confirm that it is a legitimate account belonging to Hannah. Still, several of Hannah’s personal friends from school left comments on the account.

Most of the “questions” on Hannah’s page are well-wishes coming in to her from around the world, to which she responds with brief thank yous. But she is also revealing details of her traumatic experience:

One user asked how Hannah’s mother and 8-year-old brother Ethan ended up at family friend James DiMaggio’s house: “So your mom and [Ethan] were just at his house for no reason and the thing went off and they caught [on] fire and burned?”

Hannah explained that she felt tricked:

He told us he was losing his house because of money issues so we went up there one last time to support him, and to have fun riding go karts up there but he tricked us.

After one user wanted clarification, asking “the news said your were with him willingly? Were you?” Hannah revealed, “No not at all.”

Another user asked, “how did he separate you from your mother and brother?” Hannah, unenthusiastic at answering the questions in great detail, reveals:

He tied them up in the garage. I’m done answering questions about it so don’t bother asking.

She did not want to talk about James very much “because he’s a psycho.”

Hannah Anderson On Kidnapper — James DiMaggio ‘Deserved What He Got’

A commenter did about Hannah’s relationship with captor James DiMaggio, asking her to clarify “did he tell u that he had a crush on u?” Hannah explained:

Yes he did he said it was more of a family crush like he had feelings as in he wanted nothing bad to happen to me.

One commenter asked, “Are you happier they shot him or would you have wanted him to have life in prison?” Hannah definitively answered that James deserved his fate:

Shot him. He deserved what he got.

Hannah Anderson’s Page Attracts Haters

In response to several requests, Hannah answered: “I’m sorry some I don’t feel like answering because they are personal or it’s too overwhelming I hope you guys can understand that.”

On the account, Hannah also answers questions about her favorite actors, singers, and foods. She posted several pictures, including selfies and pictures of her nails — she shows off her manicure that shows an accent nail painted half pink and half blue, which she reveals is “pink for my mom and blue for Ethan.”

Unfortuately, the account is also attracting haters who are sending awful messages.

What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Do you think it’s a good idea that Hannah is answering questions online?

Talk about over use of the word “hater.” Being suspicious of someone doesn’t mean you hate them. But common sense would tell you that this girl, with her perfect non-smudged makeup and clear, happy eyes, is not grieving the horrific deaths of her poor mom and poor little eight-year-old brother. That does not make sense to me. If a neighbor down the road from me was abducted and burned to death, I’d be too upset to do a selfie with perfect makeup and hair. I can’t even imagine if it were a little sibling and my mom. Also, a lot of times, sociopaths love the limelight. There have been those in the past who, once having committed a sensational crime, couldn’t resist being the center of attention and were constantly agreeing to do news interviews about the crime. Same thing is going on here. That poor little boy who died a horrendous death and his mother deserve justice.

Too bad Hannah shut down her account. I wanted to ask her when she was going to stop the b.s. and admit to her part in this tradgedy. She is not a victim, she’s an accomplice. Just because one is only 16 it does’t mean one is innocent.

Its good she tells her side of the story since there was a lot of suspicion from peoples comments if she went willingly with him, and if she was aware of the murders, and if she watched them being tied up, and the media is defending her, but by her clearing up some of the details, we can as clear away this suspicion and understand that she truley was a victim of this horrible ordeal.

Sure… This “victim” and her kidnapper had 13 calls between them before the fire, she said she wasn’t at his house and she didn’t know he was going to hurt her family but she knew he tied them up and tortured them and said he put them in the garage, she also said she needed to get a new phone because she said hers burned in the house she wasn’t at. Plus a whole bunch of other stuff she keeps contradicting herself about. She’s a victim alright, of her own stupidity and selfishness.

And who is around to clarify her statements? the only person who could deny her is dead. She’s pretty much free to give whatever account she wants without rebuttal.

Nonsense. The more she speaks the more her lies are exposed. She is clearly an accomplice of this murder not a victim. When first spotted by some hikers, instead of asking for help,she said ‘now we could be in trouble’. This shows her guilt. Instead of mourning the sad and horrific demise of her brother and her mother, Hanna is busy in twitting and raising funds. She may have been brain washed by this guy James but,she is evil and guilty beyond a shred of doubt. Someone , please drag this girl to court!!

Sounds like just another day in the life of a self-centered American teenage girl, and nothing, and I mean nothing, including the brutal murder of her mother and young brother, or the witnessing of the shooting death of her alleged kidnapper, are going to keep her from getting her nails done, posting pictures of herself on the internet and chatting with friends and strangers. Carry on Hannah!

The whole story sounds fishy. She does not sound like a traumatized child. I would think the FBI would have something to say about her talking about an on going case. This blows my mind that she is so willing to socialize so soon after her “horrific” ordeal.

Maybe she’s blocking her emotions by doing the things she is!!! You have never been in that situation to judge, so you should stop being the typical judge mental low class American! Carry on Billy

She’d have to learn the fundamentals in spelling and sentence structures and proper English to write a book. Have you seen anything she’s written? Worse yet, have you heard her speak? You could swear she was raised by a pack of wild wolves. Obviously at school she excels in “overtly social” with a minor in “lunch” and “nap time”.
