Chilling Autopsy Report In Hannah Anderson Case

By KMVT News

San Diego, California (CNN) New autopsy reports contain horrible details on how the mother and brother of kidnapping survivor Hannah Anderson were murdered.

We want to warn you some of these details are graphic.

A San Diego medical examiner says Christina Anderson was beaten to death by at least a dozen blows to her head. The report states Christina Anderson's ankles were bound by a plastic cable tie, and duct tape was wrapped around her neck and mouth. Her right arm and both legs were fractured, and there was a cut on her neck. Her body was found in the garage of the burning home, alongside a family dog that had been shot.

Ethan was found in another part of the home, burned beyond recognition. It was believed, according to the autopsy, that the boy died because of the fire.

Authorities say James DiMaggio killed them, then set fire to his house and kidnapped 16-year-old Hannah. This led to a multi-state manhunt that ended with the FBI shooting DiMaggio in the Idaho woods, and Hannah's rescue.

In an interview since the ordeal, Hannah said at first she was a victim, but with everyone's help, she's now a survivor.
