Autopsy reports released in Anderson family murders

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (AP) — An autopsy report says a woman found in a family friend's burning home near San Diego after the friend fled with her daughter died from at least a dozen blows to the head.

The San Diego County Medical Examiner's Office says in the report released Monday that 44-year-old Christina Anderson had duct tape around her neck and mouth, and her ankles were tied with plastic. She also had cuts in her neck that were likely inflicted after she died.

The burned remains of Anderson's 8-year-old son, Ethan, were found in the rubble of the home. The cause of his death is undetermined.

The family friend, James DiMaggio was killed Aug. 10 in a shootout with the FBI in the Idaho wilderness. Anderson's 16-year-old daughter, Hannah Anderson, was rescued.
